Bank of America Freezes Gun Manufacturer's Account

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 for further review — her exact words were — ‘We believe you should not be selling guns and parts on the Internet.’”(emphasis added)

          What “left wing thoughts”? Mine? If you think mine are left wing, A) you don’t know me, B) can’t read and/or C) don’t know left from right politically ( and probably directionally as well).

    • oat21 says:

      Absolutely, if they don’t change their attitude towards our freedoms, we should dump them. Hopefully someone will keep us advised. I have a number of DD i have to switch to a new bank but I’ll definitely will if they maintain their position.

      So many banks in America like boa are catering to ILLEGAL ALIENS with credit cards, bank loans for housing, car loans and businesses… google “bank of America boycott” SEE if YOUR bank is practicing these same CRIMES against American citizens…Took my money OUT of boa 2 years ago just for these same reasons… I’m now with an American credit union…

    • themtnman says:

      I have already pulled both our personal and 2 business accounts from BOA a few months ago over pretty similar conditions and have been for a while trying to get several other business people to do the same.

      So far most of these people are telling me that after checking on what I have told them that they are also closing their accounts at BOA and one is a rancher with over 80,000 acres. .

      ALL of us need to decide on who we want to do business by looking at how they do business not only with us but also with others specially the ones that we wish to do business with but also ALL others.

    Bank of American of all companies….scumbags!

    These are the scumbags that destroyed countless homeowner’s lives with their shady mortgage practices.

    May their business slowly die!

    • nancy miller says:

      You have that wrong! May their business quickly die.

    • cliffvettej says:

      Shady mortgage practices? When mortgages were being handed out like breath mints all of the uncreditworthy people ran out and bought a house. A great majority of these people should have never been given financing for a cup of coffee because their credit history proved one thing. That they never paid anyone back as agreed in their entire lives. However, with “no qualifying” mortgages and “stated income” where the income did not have to be proven everyone was given a mortgage. Then came the mortgage crisis and their houses were all of a sudden not worth what they paid for them and the people that should have never been given a loan in the first place started whining about predatory lenders. PLEASE STOP IT! Everything was fine when you got the loan for the house but when things took an unexpected turn then you have to find someone to blame. To make matters worse all of the good people that got a mortgage and paid on time now have to bail out the leeches. This is terrible precedent. I guess the next time they buy a car and take it to trade it in three years later and find out how much it is worth will start blaming the car dealer and bank that made their loan as being “predators”. Then they will expect the Federal government to step in and pay off their negative equity. This is what you can expect from a Country that has more “takers” than “payers”. This is what you can expect from a government led by demonrats. Insane!

        Bad loan criteria = Barney “Fife” Frank (Democrat)
        Wasn’t BOA the bank that was given huge stimulus money to loan to Americans, but was buying up small banks?

        • They got huge bailout funds and help from the politicians and stimulus money to help Americans. They instead used those funds to pay huge bonuses to their officers and gave the shaft to Americans who needed help!

        • chamuiel says:

          Jackie, banks are not in business to “help” people. Banks are in business to make money. Where did you study financing at? Russia?

      • z328 says:

        Besides buying homes they couldn’t afford in the first place, majority of these scam artist home owners took out a second just before the collapse of the mortgage industry and made out like bandits.

        • cliffvettej says:

          Here is another thing these credit bandits did. When the mortgage holder finally had had enough and got foreclosure and eviction on these scumbags they stripped the house of everything of value before the Sheriff came to evict them. They sold all of the appliances that came with the house. They sold all of the cabinets in the kitchen and stripped the house of all of the copper wiring they could before being forcibly removed. They literally destroyed the mortgage holders collateral. This is the mindset of these low lifes. This is what the demonrat ideology teaches. That is is okay to screw anybody that the demonrats see as wealthy. They should have been criminally prosecuted.

    • chamuiel says:

      simon jester,

      There were two types of home mortgages being handed out by very liberal practice by the banks back then. Unqualified people could qualify for home mortgage loans through these type of loans even though they were not qualified. Congress forced the banks to do this. One was the N.I.N.J.A. loan, No income ,no job, no assets loan. Another was the liars loan, you could say anything and get a home mortgage loan. Yet, you want to blame the banks for shady mortgage practices? Yes, I suppose they did use shady mortgage practices forced upon them by the Democrats to give mortgage loans to thousands of unqualified people. How else would those people have qualified for a home loan?

    • adainv says:

      Not really. It you read up on what happened, you will find that the government forced them to make loans that were toxic. Remember Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd? Both or these morons belong in jail. Check out how these people also got screwed by FannieMae and FreddieMac. This was all engineered by the Democrats!

  3. Obama and his goons will do everything in their power to disarm Americans and set the stage for his taking dictatoral power.

  4. Sensible says:

    What right do they have? Check history, google The Battle of Athens (1946). Pretty clear BofA is not customer driven.

  5. same one that hires guards to protect their children/themselves after they piss everybody off………..truly a two class system.

  6. Greg says:

    Time to freeze libtard BofA and let them go down the drain.

  7. rjrsinc says:

    I just closed my one of my two accounts with Bank of America. This will now make me close the other and find a true American friendly and honest bank.

  8. nancy miller says:

    Everyone that reads this article, if they have a BOA account, should close it immediately.

    This bank is unAmerican and a handmaiden to the liberals. We have to protect ourselves from dictators. That includes everyone in Washington.

    • MSGT JOHN CORREA says:

      Nancy Miller, I pray that all true American patriots will honor your advice. I closed my account when BOA gave out credit cards to illegal aliens. I wondered just how many honorable credit card holders realized their interest rate go up because of the illegal aliens failure to pay?

        Good to see that you are still around, Top. Keep in mind that Merrill Lynch is also owned by BOA. USAA bank and savings isthe best I have found for those who qualify. Semper Fi.

    So get another bank screw BA

    • Dtbd483 says:

      Chuck be careful what you say here. I would bet money that the Obama administration goon squad is watching for these kind of posts. You don’t want a visit from the secret service.

      • tonyscott317 says:

        We’ll eventually get one anyway, so you might as well prepare a welcoming reception. Invite your neighbors to join your reception and volunteer to join theirs.

        • MalikTous says:

          Look up the following:
          Big Brother
          National Socialists
          October Revolution
          Boxer Rebellion

          History repeats.

        • tonyscott317 says:

          Thanks. I’ve viewed most of those, but encourage others to do so as well, I am hopeful that there are more than enough Americans that will not go quietly into that dark night that we will emerge with an America that is once again in harmony with our founders’ vision. The days for blogging are at an end. We now know the ballot box is Obama’s digital pacifier for the dullards AND we know Congress will do nothing about it. I firmly believe the US military understands the oath they took and stand ready to honor it. After inauguration, Obama’s ego, coupled with his past experiences with weak-minded, impotent, gutless fools and cowards will have convinced him he can do anything he wants. If patriots are pushed to this point, ALL in DC that have failed their oath must be removed. Now it is up to We The People.

      • MSGT JOHN CORREA says:

        Personally, I couldn’t care less what the foreign-born Muslim communist agent dictator Mr. Barack Hussein Obama II is watching or reading. When he stole that $250 dollars from the American taxpayers, I sent it back to him with a stern letter and told him what I thought of him. I know duels are not allowed in America any longer, but I’m willing to challenge him to a hand to hand combat to the death in defense of our 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    Obama must die some how

    • Rick Olson says:

      What good will that do? We’ll be stuck with Joe Biden, then.

      • Riverdweller says:

        And if Biden dies we’ll be stuck with Boner.

        • Rick Olson says:

          The only time that John Boehner would ascend to the presidency is if both the President and Vice President were to die simultaneously. In the event that Obama were to die, resign, be impeached and removed from office, etc. then as Vice President, Joe Biden automatically becomes President. He would then nominate his own replacement as Vice President. In the event of a vice presidential vacancy, then the Vice President-designee must be confirmed by both Houses of Congress and not just the Senate.

    Mabe they should get rid of there armed gaurds so they can lose some more money.
