    Bank of America to McMillan - Drop Dead

    So B of A will be regretting this move I suspect. They told McMillian they didn't want their business because they are involved in the gun industry. Mcmillian has made a point of spreading this info far and wide.

    Zimmerman has made it cool to hate guns. Again.

    And no, I'm not sure if I mean "Zimmerman," the person, or "Zimmerman," the spectacle.

    The manager who did that will get fired, I imagine.
    Americans like guns in general, this is a really bad PR move.

    B of A is ripping comments off their Facebook page as fast as they are posted. I image that will be a full time job for someone for a while.

    With firerams sales booming (sorry, couldn't help it), BoA is cutting loose at least one, probably more, customers who actually make money and pay their bills.

    What do they teach in MBA schools these days? Does BoA know something about the future of firearms the rest of the world doesn't?

    BofA was a recipient of a "bailout" weren't they? Are they simply representing the viewpoint of their largest stockholder, Dear Leader, Inc.?
    If total government control equals safety, why are prisons so dangerous?

    It's time for the NRA to form a wall of shame for businesses that are not gun friendly. Fifty million gun owners could collapse this rotten bank overnight.

    Obviously the NRA's list needs some updating. But it's a good starting point.

    There's one firearm manufacturer and two ammo makers in my area. I might call them and see if they've had any similar issues with financial institutions.

    I suspect this was a purely economic decision. Bank of America and other banks are not being pressured by the government to divest specific industries or sectors, but the Federal Reserve is putting huge pressure on the largest banks to increase capital and reduce their risk of losses. The only way the largest banks can meet the Federal Reserve's requirements is to carefully assess the risk and profitability of all of the bank's business relationships and cull those clients at the bottom of the list.

    It's possible then that they picked the wrong sector of industry to cull. With the looming election-related ammo and firearm buying frenzy being a good possibility, the gun industry would be the wrong sector to move away from. All through this last economic depression, one of the bright spots in industry has been the gun/ammo industry. Look at the results posted by companies like Ruger, etc.

    One of the folks at Townhall.com stated that BoA is the processor of Obama reelection campaign contributions. I'll make a guess that BoA makes more money from this political business than from MacMillan's commercial account.

    Our family is very careful NOT to do any business with BoA.

    When you sell your soul to the devil, you dance the devil's tune.

    I wonder if it was a Bank of America branch that demanded to see my uncle's collateral before they would consider a loan even though he had letters of credit? Then had the nerve to complain when he run all 11 head of his collateral into their bank.

    A true story and very well documented:

    My wife and I decided to buy a second home as a rental/investment property. We were interested in bank repos or "short sales" in particular.

    After an extended search, we found an acceptable short sale property and offered 17.5K more than the asking price. The financial institution holding the paper came back and said the ACV of the property was actually 3.5k less than the asking price and were we ok with that instead of our offered price. "Yes, we were." One day later the financial institution came back and said the property was worth more than their appraised value, would we be willing to stand by our offered price? Again, "Yes, we would." Two days later the financial institution foreclosed on the property and sold it at auction for $24.5k LESS than our offered price.

    The financial institution was Bank of America.
    It's no wonder they required a bailout from the US taxpayers to survive.

    My wife and I would not, and do not, use BofA - except for a quandry! We do very occasionally use our BofA credit card - but only because it is sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation!!! I have emailed them (SAF) to ask why this connection, but no answer so far. Anyone heard of this before?

    Well, B of A has flat out denied the event took place on their facebook page. Looks like they learned a few tricks from Slick Willy.

    I thought they didn't like customers who paid on time.

    So they could rake in extra interest with both paws, like Homer Simpson at dinner.
