For the past twelve years, the McMillan companies have been banking with Bank of America. Kelly McMillan, operations director told The Daily Caller that the company has never bounced a check or been late on a payment. Their record with the bank has been exemplary.
Last week, Bank of America business banking senior vice president Ray Fox met with McMillan in what was supposed to be a routing account review, however the meeting quickly changed as McMillan wrote on Facebook saying,
“At this point I interrupted him. 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 what my business.’”
“[Fox] That is correct.”
McMillan’s company is comprised of McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing and McMillan Group International. Bank of America knew they manufactured guns when they first accepted the corporate account and extended a line of credit to them. Evidently, they have changed their philosophy and have decided not to do business with anyone that supports the Second Amendment.
McMillan said that they plan to take their banking business to one that supports the Second Amendment and is friendly with the firearms industry and is even considering to stop accepting any and all Bank of America credit cards at any of the company’s businesses. He also plans to tell the National Rifle Association and every other gun organization along with all of his friends about Bank of America’s anti-gun stand.
What I want to know is where is the ACLU and other organizations that go after other businesses that refuse to do business with people they don’t agree with such as the Christian owned t-shirt company in Kentucky that is facing a lawsuit for refusing to take an order for shirts from a gay activist group. If it is not okay for a Christian owned company to refuse to do business with an organization that goes against their religious beliefs, then how is it okay for Bank of America to refuse to do business with a company just because they are now anti-gun? It shouldn’t work that way, but evidently it does in today’s warped, twisted and perverted society.
I strongly urge every one of you that support firearms and the Second Amendment to stop doing business with Bank of America. If you have accounts with them, move them to a firearm friendly bank. Ask the new bank how they and their management feel about the Second Amendment and gun ownership. If they don’t know, insist that if they want your business they find out. Perhaps a national organization like the NRA should do a survey of major banks and post which ones are gun friendly and which ones aren’t.
Secondly, I hope that you will pass this article or the link to this article on to everyone you know. Hopefully the word will get out to every gun owner in America and they will take their business away from Bank of America. Considering there are more legal guns than people in the country, we could have a huge impact on Bank of America’s business and make them regret their anti-gun actions.
