In this day and age battles are waged… on Facebook. If you didn’t already know, McMillan Group International, the firearms manufacturer, is looking for a new bank that supports 2nd amendment rights. It is all over their Facebook page. The first post regarding the big change was about Bank of America dropping them as a client:
McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years… _
Mr. Ray Fox, the Senior Vice President of the bank, according to McMillan, claimed that they no longer wanted their business because they manufacture arms, and that it was a politically motivated decision. Seems like a poor decision to me, especially considering how vocal McMillan has decided to be.
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.
Bank of America cryptically responded with, “_While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false.” If McMillan’s accusations are true, Bank of America has successfully backpedalled by claiming that they have numerous accounts with firearms manufacturers and–did you know–that they are also big supporters of the military and will be increasing the number of veteran employees… Thou protesteth too much? McMillan fired back with a statement on their page, sticking to their original position.
Do you think Bank of America is really opposed to firearms and their manufacturers? To those of you using Bank of America and who own firearms, do you feel a change coming on, or are you impartial?
