    Bank of America hates the 2nd Amendment

    Tells McMillan to take their business elsewhere because they make guns (after 12 years with BofA)

    Fine. It's our right to close our accounts and take our business elsewhere.

    Who knows maybe next they will call you (and other gun owners) into the bank and tell you (and other gun owners) they can't finance you (and other gun owners) anymore because you (and other gun owners) have firearms

    The 2nd Amendment angle is important.

    But, its not the most important.

    According to media reports, Bank of America is up to its ears in involvement in the financial crisis--Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone Magazine did an expose on them last month. If I recall, BOA was deep in the robo-signing mortgage foreclosures, too.

    BOA's anti-2A angle is just the tip of the iceberg. They helped destroy the economy, and helped drive into foreclosure lots of people. There is a good chance you may know someone they screwed. Raise a fuss about the 2A if you must. But, if we only object to their anti-2a angle, they win. They and the government knows they can keep on sucking the lifeblood out of us as long as they let us keep our guns.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I wonder if they could; since they bought our contract from a different company, and then sent us notification about it. I was not happy.

    Yup, plenty of other reasons to dislike BoA. However, if this one spreads (and people actually follow through by closing accounts, dumping stock, and refusing BofA cards/checks), it could cost them enough money to push them (BoA) over the edge. Sorry for the employees that get laid off, but Bank of America disappearing would be a great thing.

    Dear Fellow American,

    Welcome to your Bank of America.

    Today, it's time to acknowledge that our Bank isn't working anymore—not just for the market, but for people, our real customers.

    I closed mine 5 years ago.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    USAA is okay and has a lot of benefits. But I know someone who works for their customer service and let me tell you. If you ever have a problem with CS, call back and get a different operator.

    USAA does not do their own CS and they use a company called "Teletech" in Uniontown, PA. About 80% of the CS employee's are complete goofs.

    USAA is anti. Big signs all over the property and etched into the glass doors of the entryway. No possession of firearms on their property. At least here in Colorado Springs. Even called the corporate HQ and they don't allow it. My wife and I both switched our accounts. And we had insurance, checking, savings and she did some stock stuff through them.

    I was only interested in USAA because I'm considered Veteran status and I get loans and such other items at a lower interest rate. Also easier for other crap, may not be much but it helps.

    Just one more reason to not like BOA.

    Their local branches have been friendly so far but I only use them to convert paper to metal.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

    Here's a graph supposedly of BOA stock from April 16-20.
    http://transsylvaniaphoenix.blogspot...ice-after.html
    While there may be some other explanation, there's no denying that on the 19th & 20th their stocks dropped markedly. (The 19th being when McMillan made the announcement/release.)

    Down 2.45% Friday.
    http://www.stockpricetoday.com/
    Closed the 18th @ 9.92, opened the 19th @ $9.16, closed the 20th @ $8.35.
    Stock prices (open, high, low, close) for the last several weeks:

    For those of you who need a Second Amendment friendly bank to switch too, try Chappell Hill Bank in Texas. They have online banking (so it doesn't matter where you are located).

    I've never seen the allure of the large mega-banks. I've always used local credit unions, have always received good service, and they don't have a problem with my gun rights.

    I have zero dealings with big banks. Have, and always will be, a customer of my local credit unions.

    Chase is antigun to.

    I went in to have a CMP order notarized, and even offered to open an account to have it done, they made me wait over an hour then finally refused to do it because it was for a gun, then had the gall to ask me if I still wanted to open an account.

    stick with your local credit union, the big corporate banks do not deserve our business imo. keep your money in your community.
