Facism: Bank of America arbitrarily froze the account of a firearms manufacturer because, in their words “We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.”

Quite rightly, the owner of the company told them they had “no right to make up their own rules” and that he was going to take his business elsewhere. I think every gun owner in the country should do the same.

  • I already did. Close my account at BOA. I own guns but that’s not the reason. This was back in 2009. I walked into a bank branch (without a gun) and closed it. I told them, due to their craven behavior during the financial crisis, I no longer wanted to do business. And I did take a small hit as my CD hadn’t matured. I don’t care.
