Bank of America has reportedly frozen the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, according to its owner, Joe Sirochman. In a Facebook post dated December 29, Sirochman wrote the following: “My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms...our Web site orders have jumped 500 percent causing our Web site e-commerce processing larger deposits to Bank of America. So they decided to hold the deposits for further review. “After countless hours on the phone with Bank of America, I finally got a manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold

Comments:
If true, time to cancel all Bank of America accounts.

I closed my accounts as soon as I found out BofA offered free wire transfers to Mexico from illegals.

Move the account immediately. Refinance all loans with someone, anyone else.

Another thing manufacturers can do. Insist that your vendors not send any checks/transfers drawn on BoA. Otherwise they lose your business.

I´m wondering....since the right to own a gun is in the Bill of Rights and subsequently is a "civil right" can a bank deny anyone their civil right?

A lib friend who works at HSBC says the federales are putting pressure on banks to prove there is no money laundering going on. It´s a case of guilty until proven innocent. The banks, not wanting any more fed scrutiny, take the low road and close or suspend any accounts that may displease the regime.

Declaring war on your own customers is some business plan. But B of A routinely scrapes along at the bottom of the customer satisfaction charts. They don´t care. And clearly they no longer want American Spirit Arms´ business. I´ll bet there is an independent local bank in Scottsdale that does. Processing these types of payments is childs play.

Oh, and B of A´s other corporate customers should take note of this. Today they decide they don´t like their customers selling AR-15 rifles. Perhaps tomorrow it is sugary soft drinks, meat, vehicles powered by internal combustion engines, or maybe anything whatsoever associated with coal or oil. They can´t say they weren´t warned.

Almost 3 years ago BoA noted a $200 collection account on my credit report. They immediately took over $20,000 of available credit from my credit cards. The collection account was bogus, and I easily had it removed, but BoA would not re-instate my credit, causing my credit score to go from above 700 to very close to 600. My credit was ruined through BoA´s actions. I was never late nor did I ever pay the minimum due.

I will dance an Irish jig on their grave when they go bankrupt, may they rot in hell.

#14 so you were OK with private citizens being told what they could do when it came to a person using, selling or catering to smokers?
What is the difference between that and this? Other than you agree with one and not the other. You thought it a good thing for those in power to regulate the behavior you did not like.

Years ago, wife and I closed our Bof A accounts and switched to a smaller bank- a Credit Union. B of A was doing all sorts of funny accounting and fees we often had no idea what they were and the bank could not tell us a reasonable explanation. We just got fed up with them and never went back. I always had the feeling B of A was happy to see a small timer family account go, anyway.

Folks, as much as I dislike BofA this is not a witch hunt on guns manufacturers. This is Standard Operating Procedure for acquirers regardless of business. It is a good practice to reduce fraud.

We´ve got a lot more boogeymen to deal with out there - this is not one - please move in.

Shabazz Napier, point guard for The University of Connecticut´s men´s basketball team, recently told reporters he understands why athletes at Northwestern need a union, as he sometimes has to go to bed "starving" because he cannot afford food. "We as student athletes get utilized for what we do so well. We are definitely best to get a scholarship to our universities, but at the end of the day, that doesn´t cover everything. We do have hungry nights that we don´t have enough money to get food and sometimes money is needed," the senior told reporters. "I think, you know, Northwestern has

Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon was arrested Wednesday on public corruption charges, with the FBI alleging he took tens of thousands of dollars in bribes – including $20,000 in cash delivered in a briefcase last month to the mayor’s office where he also solicited $1 million more. Cannon resigned Wednesday evening. He was arrested that morning at a SouthPark apartment used by undercover FBI agents after the mayor turned up expecting another payment, sources say.

Despite an increase of at least $400,000 in incentive payments to keep the CIAA basketball tournament, the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority said it’s confident it will still have enough money to attract other conventions and events. The CIAA and the CRVA announced Monday that Charlotte would be home to its annual basketball tournament through 2020 and that the CIAA would move its headquarters from Hampton, Va., to the Queen City. The CRVA’s current deal with the CIAA calls for Charlotte to provide the CIAA with $1 million annually along with use of the Convention Center rent-free.

(snip) General admission started at $100, but partygoers could shell out more money for bigger perks, according to a webpage describing the event. Paying the top price of $10,000 would get attendees a sofa on the stage near celebrities and 15 bottles of alcohol in the hotel’s first-floor Symphony Ballroom.

About 100,000 homes and businesses in West Virginia were being told on Thursday not to use tap water for drinking, cooking or bathing following a chemical spill along the Elk River in Charleston, the state´s capital, according to local officials. Governor Earl Ray Tomblin declared a state of emergency for five counties as a result of the spill of 4-Methylcyclohexane Methanol, a chemical used in the coal industry. Health officials were advising residents only to use the water for flushing and fire fighting.

North Carolina’s unemployment rate has fallen more than other states’ this year, and changes in the state’s unemployment system may be a contributor, Wells Fargo Securities economist Mark Vitner wrote in a report Tuesday. The state’s unemployment rate started the year as one of the highest in the country but has fallen two percentage points from a year ago to 7.4 percent in November, according to state commerce department data. The state’s unemployment rate is now .4 percentage points higher than the U.S. average, compared with 1.6 percentage points higher in November 2012. In July, North Carolina decided to end federal

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
