    Bank of America refuses to do business with McMillan Gun Stocks after 12 years. If you believe in the 2nd amendment,and have an account with BOA,please do the right thing. Don't forget to tell them why you are pulling your money out.

    I only am concerned if it was why they refused.

    Let's hear the rest of the story ...

    The snopes link you supplied mentions at the bottom that BofA is selling a bond deal for Freedom Group which makes guns and ammo. Slow down a little.

    30 years as a business owner I had a hard time believing one of the largest commercial banks in U.S. will actively terminate any good standing existing business relationship solely based on a non-financial related reason.

    One of my business names with BoA is firearm related, and it shows in our business checking account title. Never had any issue with said bank.

    I would had loved to the be the fly on the wall when McMillan met with this BoA official. I think McMillan is distorting the truth a bit for a beef with BoA over something else, unrelated to the fact that his business is firearms related.

    See link above: BoA has been contributing both to Dems and Repubs, even pro-gun Repubs. So BoA being anti-gun is not mashing up with their political contributions.
