I'll probably have to keep our BoA credit cards though, much as I hate to. Looking at buying a house when we find out where we're going to be long-term and we need the credit score bump from the active account.

Well that explains it...

This was the sign across from our hotel in Boston a couple years ago

Pass the word - I think that it's important that we support constitutionalists and unsupport the statists. There are plenty of banks that do want our business.

Details / Story:
Bank of America drops customer McMillan Group

McMillan Mfg in Phoenix, Arizona, which produces rifles for our Military
Snipers, was contacted by Bank of America and informed that they will no longer be allowed to use their services because they are in the firearms business and support the second amendment.


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

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 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 said.

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,

"We the People, are the Rightful Masters of both Congress and the courts, not to

Anyone know if there are any banking regulations regarding this?

Its very silly since they are all linked under the federal reserve system.. Could a person refuse a check drawn on BOA?

I am not sure a merchant can boycott a bank. But it appears that a bank can boycott a businesses. BOA is DOA anyway.. To big to fail to big to run.


BOA IS DOA...... BOA IS DOA .... BOA IS DOA

Ironically they are the ones that issue the Bass Pro Credit Card. I had one for a short while when I bought my M&P from Bass Pro a few years ago. They offered another $50 of the gun purchase as well as the 2 free mags coming from S&W at the time, plus the pistol was on sale.

Opened the card, bought the gun paid off the card at first statement and closed the account! I look at it as I got one over on them!

I can add this to the many other reasons I dropped them a little while back. No more BOA

Oh the hypocrisy. The Bank of America branch around the corner from my house has been robbed a few times over the years. The last time it got robbed (maybe 3 or 4 years ago?), they stationed an armed guard out front for a few weeks. He wasn't just some mall security kind of guy with a uniform and pepper spray, this was a tactical-uniformed officer holding what looked like an MP5.

Yeah, guns are bad, right BoA?

BOA caters to the illegals in the Laurel area and a few years ago an armored car crew was involved in a shootout outside BOA in Laurel Mall. And Capital One is just as bad, and I dropped them a few years ago over their hiring practices...they had no white employees at their outlets in and around Laurel. Unfortunately, I live in PG county and that says it all. We bank with PNC.

More and more banks are national nowadays...Wells Fargo, US Bank Corps, TD, Citi....plenty of choices
