Some companies discriminate against gunmakers, distributors, retailers, and firearm shoppers and owners. This is a problem that I have witnessed for decades. While I was living out west, there was a gun dealer that sold primarily black rifles - before black rifles were popular. The local branch of a national bank declined to open a checking account for the company. They settled out of court, and the gun dealer signed a nondisclosure agreement. I almost switched banks, but the bank was convenient.
But since Obama won his first election, the political environment has definitely changed. There were harbingers of a renewed politically correct move against the firearms industry within the last year. I vaguely remember that several months ago after Aurora and before Sandy Hook, Bank of America closed the
account of a stock manufacturer, because the bank manager handling the
account said that BoA did not approve of what the company sold. But now there is a wave of companies forming new internal policies or discoverying old internal policies that restrict the companies involvement in the free-trade of arms.
slowly been accumulating info about such companies. I'm doing so
because I've read that some lists, such as the NRA's, are possibly
inaccurate, outdated, and incomplete. Also, I wanted more detailed
information of the extent of the discrimination against the free market of
private arms and the proof for the accusations.
respect the right of private companies to choose who they do business
with - that is their right. But I do have a problem with government
entities and corporations discriminating against the private-arms
community. And I feel that is it my duty to direct my
business away from companies that discriminate against those who are
exercising their rights enumerated in the Second Amendment.
