Default Bank of America stops business with McMillan

http://dailycaller.com/2012/04/20/an...-another-bank/

Apparently BOA just flatly told McMillan that they don't want to do business with them solely on the fact that the company is becoming a manufacturer of actual firearms than accessories

I'm sure there is no shortage of banks willing to take their money.

Like we needed more reasons to not deal with BoA.

And I think McMillan should've stuck with allowing his customers to use BoA. If the best revenge is living well, then they can see what kind of money passes through there.

They did it. I don't bank with them. Strictly bank with a local credit union.

Private or not, they'd get in deep for refusing business based on race or religion. I don't see this as any different.

Yes, but you can't change your race or religion.

And BoA has kinda/sorta denied it.

First off, you can change your religion. Whoever told you otherwise lied.

Secondly, Wal-Mart can't throw me out of the store based on my political stances. Les Schwab can't refuse to fix my tire based on my political stances. I fail to see how BoA is some kind of an exception here.
