BOYCOTT Bank Of America!!! Bank of America Refusal to Service Gun Company Accounts May Bring Blowback from 2nd Amendment Advocates…

Posted: April 26, 2012 in Money, People, Politics, Uncategorized

[Editor’s Note: The history behind the Bank of America is explained in the books of Dr. John Coleman, especially in The Committee of 300. It was the BOA who had intended recently to charge debit customers $5 a month for use of their debit card. They only withdrew after an intense national boycott campaign began to grow wildly. It was the BOA who REFUSED to accept cash from a man who was trying to pay his mortage payment at a BOA branch in Lakeport, Caifornia. And now, joining Rockefeller’s Chase bank, they are telling gun company acocunt holders that they don’t wnat their business. You’ll notice that the pattern of isolation and separation is following the same footsteps taken in Nazi Germany in the 1930’s against Jewish businesses. ..Ken]

Bank of America Refusal to Service Gun Company Accounts May Bring Blowback from 2nd Amendment Advocates (April 23, 2012)

Bank of America says it won’t service gun companies, tells McMillan International to get lost.

We all know guns are politically incorrect. But cash is king, or at least, it used to be.

For us gun people, things are always getting put down, and our sub-culture is always getting squeezed out of the mainstream just a little bit more all the time. First Craigslist banned guns and ammo, then Ebay. Then PayPal started refusing to process any transaction linked to guns. Then Chase started getting flakey about gun businesses who had accounts with them. And now, Bank Of America.

For us gun folks, this has been something we’ve been dealing with in increasing frequency for some years now. Guys who buy and sell anything related to guns themselves online, and who transfer funds via PayPal, have had to learn to make sure the word gun appears nowhere in the transaction notes or description. So when we hear about the next financial service or online marketplace refusing to have anything to do with guns, it is regrettable, but not exactly surprising.

One company just learned they are now persona non grata: McMillan International, based in Phoenix, Arizona. They are makers of some of the best rifles and related gear in all the world. Their military sniper weapons have performed some of the longest successful combat shots on record.

Kelly McMillan, their CEO, just posted an interesting account of a meeting he had the other day with Bank of America’s Senior Vice-President of Business Banking, who had set the meeting. I’ll just let Kelly tell it.

“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, Marlet 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 have 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 one I know, that Bank of America 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 rights to keep and bare arms, should 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 cannot, in good conscience support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment for our products.
