Bank of America does not support 2nd Amendment

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, Marlet 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 import 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 can not in good conscience
support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit
cards as payment for our products.

Re: Bank of America does not support 2nd Amendment

Sealesniper, Two days after hearing of this I was able to verify the accuracy. Two days after that...the B of A no longer had use of the monies in either of my accounts or an active credit card account for me. B of A is welcome to do as they want, think as they want, and run their business as they desire....but they'll forever do it without me.

somebody here should have the data on the Bank Of America's holdings and what other banks they own. If so please post it.
