Anyone who knows McMillan, knows they make some of the best rifle stocks out there. Most of our military arms have a McMillan on it. This is what BofA said to them recently. I'm in the process of closing out my accounts.

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 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 possible 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 what 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 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 can not in good conscience support them. We will soon no longer be accepting Bank of America credit cards as payment for our products.

Why am I not surprised at this.... They also are not supportive of our vets either and tried to screw over the Armed Forces YMCA at Balboa Hospital.
You guys forgot to mention that they are just a horrible bank.
Science flies people to the moon...Religion flies people into buildings
I've made the mistake of doing business with them twice in my life, never again. I will bad talk BofA to anyone who has ears. Bof A stands for Bunch of @$$holes!
It seems like McMillan could have some legal recourse here, if that is what caused BofA to decline their business?
Go figure... A bank doing stupid things. Especially BofA.
The downward spiral of things is all too evident, even more so when people my age are involved in politics.
