Is Bank of America Forbidding Gun and Ammo Purchases?

“I heard a rumor this morning that Bank of America is stopping purchases made with the cards on ammo and gun sales, is that correct?” said Freda, a 20-year customer of the Bank. “Correct ma’am,” replied the phone rep.

This is the beginning of a shocking conversation recorded to YouTube.

Bank of America recently revealed their disdain for guns when they began refusing to do business with gun manufacturers and businesses that support the 2nd amendment. Just last December, Joe Sirochman, president of American Spirit Arms, made a Facebook post claiming Bank of America illegally withheld his company’s funds because of the nature of its business.

But is this video true?

If so the bank appears to have gone even further and reportedly stopped all its customers from purchasing any firearms or ammo with their own debit cards.

“It sounds to me like my financial institution is now going to start trying to tell me, as the consumer, what I can and can not purchase,” said Freda.

Despite the call sounding authentic, which it could be, another video has surfaced reportedly showing another phone call where a Bank of America employee claims the video isn’t true.

At this time the viral video appears to be either mistaken, or outright false. Whether the employee misunderstood the question or the call was fake, the allegation at this time appears to be incorrect. Some have speculated that the caller’s PERSONAL account was suspended, not all debit card users.

Regardless of the authenticity of the video, the damage could already be done as thousands of viewers of the video are calling in to cancel their accounts with the bank.

NOTE: I personally called Bank of America to confirm the video and I was informed that Bank of America has not suspended users debit cards.
