McMillan and Bank of America

I received the following in an email. McMillan has posted a short article on the public access part of it's Facebook page (you don't need a Facebook id to view it).

I have no relationship with BofA, but those that do should take action.

Subject: Fw: Bank of America tells gun manufactures to close their accounts and take their banking elsewhere!


Below is the text that McMillan Firearms Manufacturing posted on their facebook page. If you have facebook, you can see the post here: https://www.facebook.com/McMillanGroupInternational



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 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 manufacture 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 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.
