    Crazy thought, but it looks like a good time to form a Second Amendment Credit Union dedicated to and for pro-gun individuals and businesses.

    That's what capitalism is all about: seeing a hole in the market and filling it.

    Saving @Certaindeaf the effort:
    Representatives from Fifth Third Bank visited Spike’s Tactical, a Florida based firearm manufacturer, last Tuesday to inform them that the bank was discreetly planning to exit the banking sector for gun-related businesses.

    There should be an FTC guideline that protects constitutionally protected activities from being discriminated against.

    imagine if the banks protected us against the housing market crash. Seems to me that we might need a little french style revolution soon.

    DARN... I hate wells fargo in so many ways.... they are SCUM.

    Looks like they are trying to glom on to some group... us? to suck up and give them some credibility.

    Not gonna work with me. I hope they crash and burn.... because that is exactly what they deserve.

    Think of the possibilities:
    1. All tellers would be armed
    2. Most of the customers would likely be armed as well
    3. Monthly specials on guns/ammo with participating businesses
    4. Deals on range memberships with participating businessess
    5. Business loans for gun-oriented businesses would lack the hassles associated with other financial institutions
    6. Member-owned, so 2A support could be written into the bylaws.

    Its a rather good idea, however credit unions take along time to take hold.
    Would need like the NRA or someone with reach or it could take decades to expand.

    Certainly it's not an immediate solution. Maybe not even a national solution for big gun manufacturers, but I'd suggest it would be a good start-up idea now while the anti-gun financial trend is starting to gain steam because eventually those anti-gun policies will reach down to us hoi polloi.

    Credit unions generally start real small and don't grow as fast as for-profit banks, but they tend to remain more stable with lower fees and strong member-oriented policies. Even if it never grew to a state-wide organization, it would definitely be of help to local members and businesses.

    I'm not a financial expert, just a marketing/design dude who sees a need for financial institutions that actively and proudly support the Second Amendment.

    Fortunately or unfortunately stripped lowers and kits are so cheap now that is virtually a possibility. It's hard to see where the profit is today in black rifles outside of accessories and training.
