    I just received this in an e-mail has anyone else heard this?

    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,

    BofA took TARP money, so sure there's some political pressure. I wouldn't use BofA for anything, ever. Not just because I work for a competitor, of course. :rolleyes: Who DID NOT take TARP funds, btw, because my employer is sound and didn't need the bailout. :D

    Pas- you don't get out much. We discussed this when it happened- in APRIL 2012. And a second similar event with Spirit Arms, of which the president has confirmed to me by email.
