Bank of America Tells Gun Manufacturer McMillan Firearms “We no Longer Want Your Business”
(Mark Schumacher) The 2nd Amendment is becoming more and more under attack as not only Bank of America, but also Craigslist, EBay and PayPal as they give thumbs down to any transactions concerning guns or Ammo. Gun owners are more and more becoming isolated from being able to purchase or manufacture guns. It’s damn close if not full blown tyranny. For people who love guns, it’s another long line of BS that they have had to put up with. It’s good to see that Mr. McMillan no longer accepts Bank of America credit cards as payment for any of his products. We all in the gun community should disassociate ourselves from this corrupt bank ASAP.
Kelly McMillan, CEO of McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Group International, and McMillan Firearms Manufacturing had a meeting recently with Bank of America’s Senior Vice President, Mr. Ray fox. Here is how it went in Kelly McMillan’s’ own words:
“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 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’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.
