Bank of America shuts down McMillan Mfg

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 let for him to say.

I think it is import for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd amendment right to keep and bare 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.

I also heard from a local firearms retailer in my area that they were turned down by Wells Fargo due to their business!

Now that's creepy. :o I don't own a gun myself, but I secretly feel safer knowing my neighbor does....

So banks don't want citizens to bear arms....

I wonder if they would invest in a company that manufactures guillotines! :lol:

--------------------
I'm not sure that knowing my neighbour had a gun
would make me feel safer or not. (What if decides
to go off his meds???!!! :o :o) But in answer to your
question as to whether a bankster would invest in
a company manufacturing guillotines - back around
1907 or so - and speaking speaking hypothetically
of course :D - Vladimir Lenin, the late, great Russian revolutionist once said -"The last capitalist will
gleefully sell us the rope that we use to hang him
with
" - so to my mind, the answer would be a
most definite "yes"!!! :D :D
