MANDEVILLE, LA --(Ammoland.com)- It’s firearms manufacturer McMillan Group International and the Bank of America refusal, this week on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.

While it’s not uncommon to see retail businesses and restaurants refuse to do business with those that choose to carry a personal firearm, it is less common for a major bank to drop a client because the client is part of the firearms industry.

But as reported by Kelly McMillan, Director of Operations for McMillan Group International, that’s exactly what Bank of America did last week. McMillan shared the story with media outlets and on the company’s Facebook page, and has updated followers as it progresses.

Bank of America has claimed the story was untrue, and then was a misunderstanding.

Writes McMillan on their Facebook page, “McMillan Group has been in good standing with B of A and a loyal customer for the past 12 years. We were told that we must finalize all of our accounts because we manufacture firearms.”

Hear the whole story and the latest developments this Sunday when McMillan calls Gun Talk.

It’s the last few days to enter to win the Ruger 10/22 TakeDown! Grand Prize includes the brand-new rifle, carrying bag and two BX-25 magazines. Enter at www.guntalk.com/contest.

      BOA has the Fed so heavily all over them it’s not funny. People making above a certain amount don’t get raises this year at BOA. My thought is largely because of the bad press about the banks and how the Fannie and Freddie folks were handing out big raises and bonuses.

      It’s a good company and in the end people who really research will see that they did nothing wrong in the housing down turn.

    2. This whole thing is bunk. They bank some of the largest names in firearms. BofA is about as popular as Wal-Mart. If you’re big then you have a target painted on your back. They paid $2B for Countrywide, and have paid $20B in mortgage settlement costs related to that. And they earned the ire of the Nation. You have to laugh at their sad sequence of events.

      Calling them anti-2nd amendment is like saying Wal-Mart is anti-2nd amendment; they sell guns and bank guns.

      Today, McMillan posted that one of the reasons BoA said they had problems with these accounts involved their feeling that McMillan was “untrustworthy.” That does not sound like something connected to the 2nd Amendment. In fact, BoA is still procession millions of gun purchases every day for it’s other customers.
