    Default For those of you who bank with Bank of America

    Copied from another site:

    Maybe some of y'all knew about this, but I just received the email today. After receiving it, I called McMillan to verify it. They confirmed that it happened in April of this year.

    [Quote]:
    From the Owners of McMillan Mfg. in Phoenix, AZ



    McMillan has been a customer and produces rifles for our Military Snipers.

    This is happening all around us and we are allowing this socialist government to keep growing. McMillian Mfg in Phoenix, Arizona, was contacted by Bank of America and informed that they will no longer be allowed to use their services ( Bank of America ) because they are in the firearms business and support the second amendment.

    I am fine with you re-posting it. Thank for your support.

    McMillan Group International | Facebook

    McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, 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 (Bank of America) 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 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" 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' 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,

    All I can say is let your conscience be your guide. There are a lot of businesses out there that are against our rights, but when I find out who they are, I cannot and will not do business with them.

    This came up a LONG time ago. And I still happily bank with BoA. Never going to agree with everything.

    It's been widely talked about in most gun forums since McMillan first issued their press release, that's all I'm saying.

    Just another reason why you should never do business with BoA, as if anyone would need another!

    It had been 6 but is now 5 prime offenders since Wachovia merged with with Wells Fargo, sorry for the confusion.

    JP Morgan Chase
    BoA
    Citi
    Wells Fargo
    USB


    Everyone of these giants have TRILLIONS in bad debt and derivatives on their books that will never be reconciled.

    The term "too big to fail" has never been more appropriate.

    Take a look at the % of overall deposits, and assets these mega banks hold, it will BLOW your mind.

    Pretty much your only option these days.

    Small regional banks that aren't loaded with toxic assets are worth looking at, they're still out there, but do your due diligence.

    Credit Unions will not accept commercial accounts.

    Im with Citizens Bank, mainly because they are in Ny and Ohio (in-laws) but they are "gun friendly" as far as I know


    I believe it was Thomas Jefferson who said "Be more afraid of a central banking system than a standing army" Boy was he right

    I wasn't planning on going for a run today

    BoA sucks ass and everyone working there deserves to die in a fire.

    I bank with USAA and a local credit union.
    According to Fuhrer Cuomo, I am an "extreme fringe conservative". According to Bill Maher, I'm an "ammosexual". F' them. I'm just a regular guy who chooses to arm himself - a sheepdog amongst the sheep - because I never know when the wolf will appear.
