On April 20, 2012 we posted an article about McMillian Firearms claiming Bank of America didn’t want their business anymore due to them being a firearms manufacturer. There have been a lot of different opinions on this of whether the claim was true or not.
On April 22, 2012, Bank of America posted the following on their Facebook page in response to the claim.
We want to let you know that we hear your comments and questions regarding one of our customers. While we cannot discuss the details of any individual client we work with, we can assure you the allegations being made here are completely false. Bank of America does not have a policy that prohibits us from banking clients in this industry. In fact, we have numerous, longstanding customers in the industry.
We are also extremely proud of our support of the US military and reject any assertion to the contrary. We count as clients many companies that provide for our nation’s defense. We employ thousands of veterans, Guardsmen, and Reservists, and plan to increase our hiring this year.
