Bank of America allegedly froze the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms!

"Bank of America allegedly froze the account of gun manufacturer American Spirit Arms, saying the company “should not be selling guns on the Internet,” the company’s owner, Joe Sirochman, alleges.

“My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms…our Web site orders have jumped 500% causing our Web site e-commerce processing larger deposits to Bank of America. So they decided to hold the deposits for further review,” Sirochman wrote on American Spirit Arms’ official Facebook page on Dec. 29, 2012.

“…as you could imagine this made me furious…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 for further review,” the post read. “Her exact words were…”We Believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the internet.”

After initially flipping the “f**k out,” Sirochman said he told Bank of America they have no"

Its happened before.

First Americans are denied Wikileaks and BOA freezes their banking and now its guns you can`t have.. just add these to that endless ever growing list.
Where will this end?

There are ALOT of them that appreciate the 2A. That is where my merchant CC account is. :) F BofA

Bump, this is who is pulling the strings of our government.

The banks make the laws and when that doesn't work they freeze your accounts and payment processing.

Now you know why Dillinger preferred to rob them.

I hope he recorded the call.

I hope he recorded the call. This sounds more like a routine red flag for a large increase in volume causing the bank to investigate to be sure the transactions are legit. This is not uncommon with processors. If BofA is doing their own processing of American Spirits accounts this would be legit. Until and only until they reach the company to confirm the sharp increase in volume is correct.
As much as I hate the mega banks, we must realize we have had a hand in creating them through the actions of our corrupt government. I would like to see the proof that this was a political move by the bank because if it was, it would be very stupid.

Let's see the statement from BofA on paper or confirmed audio before jumping on board here.

Do they freeze the accounts of internet porn clients, too?

I mean why stop with guns if you think it's actually ok to withhold someone's money simply because of your personal biases about someone's business?

Do they disclose to their customers in advance lists of business types they don't approve of for which they feel entitled to withhold someone's money?

Where do they draw the line?

Would they freeze accounts of politicians who don't vote how they would prefer?

...or do they only target gun businesses?

We are under attack, folks.

I am very disturbed by this, and if those two deaths were just coincidence, that is a very creepy coincidence.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.
