    McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, McMillan Group International have been collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years. Today Mr. Ray Fox, Senior Vice President, Marlet Manager, Business Banking, Global Commercial Banking came to my office. He scheduled the meeting as an “account analysis” meeting in order to evaluate the two lines of credit we have with them.... He spent 5 minutes talking about how McMillan has changed in the last 5 years and have become more of a firearms manufacturer than a supplier of accessories.
    At this point I interrupted him and asked “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 want my business.”
    “That is correct” he says.
    I replied “That is okay, we will move our accounts as soon as possible. We can find a 2nd Amendment friendly bank that will be glad to have our business. You won’t mind if I tell the NRA, SCI and everyone one I know that BofA is not firearms industry friendly?”
    “You have to do what you must” he said.
    “So you are telling me this is a politically motivated decision, is that right?”
    Mr Fox confirmed that it was. At which point I told him that the meeting was over and there was nothing let for him to say.

    I think it is import for all Americans who believe in and support our 2nd amendment right to keep and bare 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.

    b of a is about the lowest form of banking life there is out there anyways.....at one point and time they told me that if i couldn't keep at least 10,000 in my account they didn't care if they had my business or not lmao. And the fact that they now hold an enormous amount of home loans, and are constantly involved in every government scheme that comes out in this "modern" economy....quite frankly, f'k em. If I could manage it, I personally would not use ANY bank. You can't trust em with your money or your privacy. But I will not knowingly deal with B of A again (they won't even honor their own checks without charging you, so why not take them somewhere else).

    Good job, McMillan. I probably wouldn't have even wasted that much time, and may have had the dweeb forcibly removed from the property just to make the point.

    Hello to the people of 1997.
    I only say this because you must be posting from the past.
    Nobody in the present could possibly be surprised by just how low BofA would stoop.

    BOA is one of the most liberal arrogant banks on the planet and expeciallly when they got all that tarp money of which non has been paid back at least as of a couple of months ago. There customer service just blows and the sooner I get my mortgage paid off to these dirtbags the better. Every month I pay off a large amount of principal and I have to call them everytime to stop putting it toward future payments and apply it to principal. Then they have the ball to tell me that thier computor system can't do it any other way. BS ,ITs your taxpayer money at work.

    I did my own personal protest of big banks about 20 years ago and moved my accounts to a local credit union. Best financial move I've ever made. Support your community by doing your financial stuff throuh local credit unions.

    On a semi-related note gotta love that the Citigroup shareholders said no to a $15 million pay package to the current CEO!

    I find it funny that they have a Portland Police Officer on duty all the time at the Portland branch by the Portland building downtown. Personally I wouldn't even pooh in their bathroom... let alone bank with them shysters. I only deal with credit unions now, the heck with the regular banks.

    I second the suggestion to move to credit unions. They are member owned, don't pay anything to or pander to stockholders.

    I have dealt with B of A three times in the past (slow learner) and dumped them three times. I recently did business with Wells Fargo as they bought our mortgage, but that is and shall remain history.

    As an aside related to the armed guard at the B of A, when we first got to town I was still transferring from WF to credit union only. WF is right next door to Unitus. I first walked into WF and did a double take at all the floor to ceiling bullet resistant glass, etc. I withdrew my funds, closed my account and walked over to Unitus where I found a quiet, lay back ambiance sans bullet resistant glass, etc.

    I went into a B of A branch about 5 years ago to look into opening some business accounts, they really didn't seem like they wanted my business so I went elsewhere..... glad I did.
    I'm planning on joining the credit union bandwagon too, just need to find the time to get on it.

    Bof A has always been pretty poor to its customers. I left them long ago and hope everyone else will also. We the people can send strong messages if we unite....

    As for bullet resistant plexi that has to do with a few things, I worked at WF for a few years as a banker, all the california ones except a few have barriers, and most modern branches will for teller safety. I would explain more but well due to a few pieces of paper I signed I can't really disclose that kind of item

    For me, BofA has already had its last nail pounded in to the coffin, and buried 6 feet under...

    this turn of events will keep me from leaving flowers at its tomb stone... ^_^

    WTF? No one is talking about attacking or robbing a bank. No one cares about the weaknesses of the plexiglass or other nonsense.

    Anyone notice that no major news agency in the world is covering this? Damn gun hating media. I'll bet MSNBC does a special though about how courageous BoA is for "Standing up to what's right instead of profitable" or some bullbubblegum.
