Bank of America Refusing Businesses that Support the 2nd Amendment

Bank of America - Bank of Hoplophobia
Bank of America – Bank of Hoplophobia

Phoenix, Arizona –-(Ammoland.com)- McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, and McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years.

Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Market Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking came to my office. He scheduled the meeting as an “account analysis” meeting in order to evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them. He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and has become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories.

At this point I interrupted him and asked “Can I possibly save you some time so that you don’t waste your breath? What you are going to tell me is that because we are in the firearms manufacturing business you no longer want my business.”

“That is correct” he says.

I replied “That is okay, we will move our accounts as soon as possible. We can find a 2nd Amendment friendly bank that will be glad to have our business. You won’t mind if I tell the NRA, SCI and everyone I know that BofA is not firearms industry friendly?”

“You have to do what you must” he said.

“So you are telling me this is a politically motivated decision, is that right?”

Mr. Fox confirmed that it was. At which point I told him that the meeting was over and there was nothing left for him to say.

I think it is important for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms to know when a business does not support these rights. What you do with that knowledge is up to you. When I don’t agree with a business’s political position I can not in good conscience support them.

We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment for our products.

Question: I believe I read where other companies such as PayPal, eBay and more have the same policy. Can/will someone list all the Companies that are against the 2nd Amendment?

I stopped BOA and AARP earlier!

Thank You,

Fast & Furious- Government Anti-Gun Scheme!!! My hat is off to all you people who have rallied around this. Also, the president's claim of executive privilege, has a hidden agenda. The government wanted those guns to cross the Mexican border and kill people, so they could push the UN Small Arms Treaty to "keep small arms from crossing national borders." It our government and Obama cared do much about this, when the gun dealers called and told the ATF what was going on, they would have stopped it, instead of tell them to sell the guns to these people.

Beware of AARP ALSO!!! I banked with BOA until 1997. Even back then they started charging outrageous fees and I took my money out pronto. When you leave a bank for any reason, always tell them why. When BOA looses 100,000 customers because of being anit- gun, they will think long and hard about their gun grabbing policy. Also, I have refused to join AARP for years because of their policy of donating so much of each person's money for the anti-gun movement. Most people don't know this. I have told them I would never join until they quit this.… Read more »

Bank of America has a lot of shortcomings. And one thing we should keep in mind is that the bank is not in the best financial condition. Therefore, it is being run de facto by the federal government. Some of the decisions the bank makes may be because of its being overseen so closely and so strictly by the federal government which can, if it chooses to do so, make life complicated for the bank and its managers . . to include closing the bank. BofA is certainly acting like a pussy with your account. I, too, will close out… Read more »

Fortunately I don't have any accounts with BOA however it would be good to know if there are any other banks that support their position. If that list is available I suggest posting it so supporters of the second amendment know their options when it comes to financial decisions.

I wonder what BofA will do when they get robbed at gunpoint? Throw all of those cancelled credit cards at the robbers?

So BofA doesn't want to do business with gun fans. OK. Looks like there are plenty of folks here who are happy to oblige. Good for them.

I believe I'll pay off the balance on this BofA credit card of mine and then find some other card to replace it.

I own a small Real Estate Brokerage in AZ (45 employees) and I'm disgusted that Bank of America would profile a business in this way. I have multiple accounts, personal and business, with Bank of America for more than 15 years. I will be closing all accounts with Bank of America immediately!

BOA has proceeded downhill dramatically all while ripping off it's customers. BOA obviously no good, too many f'in fees. BTW, countered pair of thugs who prepared to rob me at a BOA ATM. Had another criminal that wanted to do something with a weapon at a BOA branch. WTF?

No boa account-will never have one. It's good to hear so many are fed up with our govt bailing out companies that failed but will not lift a finger for the people and businesses that make our country work. We have a chance to change that this fall. If we fail we will all be wearing turbans.

It's just one more reason to understand that the election this fall is so very important. This attack on law abiding citizens is only going to get worse through the current political administrations manipulation, coersion, and threats as they persue their socialist/communist/Marxist approach to government.

There are a number of comments here about Basspro credit cards being BofA cards. Why is BofA doing business with Basspro and not Mcmillan? Basspro sells guns and shooting equipment. They probably would sell you a Mcmillan stock if you wanted one.

Isn't Wells Fargo the stagecoach?

Sometimes it is really hard to tell if you have a B of A card? Once in a while I will get something from B of A about a card of mine but the card says nowhere that it is a B of A account.

I will look closely at the cards I have and at any accounts I may apply for in the future. I would hate to apply for a store card to find that it is a B of A.

Is the bank with the guys riding on the stagecoach, purportedly with guns to keep us and our assests safe also a liberal looting bank?

Just wondering!

I think I will wait and see whether any of this is true. Much like the NRA is doing, right now all we are getting is one side of the story, and yet the sheep are following the shepherd blindly.

McMillan produces stocks and specialized rifles for police SWAT units and stocks for the US military (the M25 and M40 sniper rifles use McMillian stocks), so BOA’s efforts affect more than just gun owners. In other words, not only is BOA anti-Second Amendment, but by default it is now anti-US military.

Banks have been allowed to rob and steal assets for years. Maybe the NRA, SCI and other organizations who believe in America should start their own S&L's not only would they have ready access to new customers and profits they would make would help fund American's who believe in the Constitution the way it was written and get rid of the laws that are in direct conflict with what our forefathers stood and died for. Our Patriots who serve our country today that defend our right to bear arms should have companies that stand up for AMERICA! After all those… Read more »

BoA serves illegal aliens willingly because it serves the left wing agenda of creating more people dependent on the government and consequently more dumb voters to vote for thse stupid left wing policies. BoA runs off good solid independent productive American companies with good solid American values because they will vote the other way, follow the Constitution and be less likely to give them another bail-out. With one they will be required to provide good service be courteous and have good Banking practices to make money, with the other they will only have to suck up to the left………very interesting!… Read more »

It's not that they refuse to do business with me because I do firmly support the 2nd amendment … it's that I REFUSE to do business with THEM! Plenty of fish in the sea. Usually, local smaller ones are better

Fortunately I do not use either of the companies and will no longer buy from anyone that accepts their cards or lines of credit.

Sick and tired of left wingers and those that support them. I vote only for Americans with moral values which leaves out all of the news makers of the day residing in D.C.

My mother recently passed away from a rather unpleasant fight with lung cancer. As a result, her pension stopped and her husband recieves a final one time payment from social security. They had a home mortgage with BOA, as well as a credit card and a checking account. Her mortgage was an auto debit to her checking acct., which was insufficiently funded due to the loss of her pension/social security. They had overdraft protection to cover the shortfall…BOA charged it to their credit card. These people are immoral crooks. Shame on them.

In other words they don't support the Constitution of the United States of America. I guess their "america" in their name is for South America, not the United States. I pulled my account from them after they began issueing credit cards to illegal immigrants who aren't required to show a SSN to obtain one, but require US citizens to do so. They should change their name to Bank of the Socialists.

I think that all have forgotten that BofA is actually Nations Bank, you know the company that was caught practicing debits before credits. This company only renamed itself because it was caught, they have NEVER been an upstanding company and never will. I would so love to see this company go to bankruptcy. They are crooks and their opinion should not guide our future.
