In a recent meeting, Bank of America told McMillan firearms group of companies in Arizona that they want McMillan to pay off its credit line and that its account will soon be closed.
Operations Director Kelly McMillan described on Facebook his meeting with banking Senior Vice President Ray Fox as a “political smackdown.” It had nothing to do with whether or not his company fulfilled their business obligations. McMillan wrote that VP Fox,
“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.”
The McMillan Operations Director knew where that statement was headed and finished the thought for Fox, that Bank of America no longer wanted his business. Fox confirmed he was correct.
The bank executive was then informed by McMillan that organizations such as the National Rifle Association and Safari Club International would learn “that Bank of America is not firearms-industry-friendly.” In response, Fox simply told him to do what he must do, but McMillan’s business was not wanted.
Kelly McMillan informed the Daily Caller that “his company has never been late on a payment and has never bounced a check. The debt outstanding on its line of credit is at 61 percent.” Source.
Because of their political stance in making decisions, McMillan has decided to no longer accept Bank of America credit cards as payment for products they sell to customers. In the meantime, he will be doing business with a more sensible bank.
Gun owners who hear of this will likely follow suit and avoid when possible all business with Bank of America. McMillan has since commented,
“Bank of America will eventually address it officially but I do not think they have any idea how big this is going to get with the ramifications. I’m a web consultant, by trade, and I’m thinking about manipulating all local search results to push down Bank of America then send them to a local site about how Bank of America does business or send them here.”
McMillan Group Calls On Bank Of America Boycott For Bank’s “Anti Gun” Position “….since a bank can do that to a customer I believe customers can and should call on other gun owners to boycott Bank of America, plus all subsidiaries, and suggest to their customers that they leave Bank of America.”
