On December 29, the owner of American Spirit Arms; Joe Sirochman relayed this chilling news via Facebook:
All, My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America .(which we have been doing business with for over 10 years) . Everyone is familiar with the latest increase in guns sales , dealers selling out of inventory , Manufacturers back logged for months , large revenue all generated in the last two weeks . American Spirit Arms is no exception to the overwhelming demand . What we have experienced is that our web site orders have jumped 500 % causing our web site E commerce processing larger Deposits to BANK OF AMERICA ..Well, this through up a huge RED Flag with Bank of America . So they decided to hold the deposits for further review , meaning that the orders/payments that were coming in through the web ,( being paid by the customer and that were shipped out by American Spirit Arms ),the BANK was keeping (UNDER REVIEW )..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
HER EXACT WORDS WERE
.. WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET

Oh, it has been much longer than that. I dumped their ass in the early ‘80s because they employed “Amish” tellers who were rude and dumb as sticks, and who gave one of our credit cards to her baby daddy, who got caught trying to buy clothing with it.
We knew something was wrong when we got our “cards,” but there was only one in the (sealed and un-tampered-with) envelope. Then I got a call at work that “someone” was trying to use the missing card, and where was my husband. I said that we worked at the same place and he was right there with me.
I closed the account and went to a different bank. Never looked back.
Must congratulate you as your ideas do seem very prudent indeed. If a majority of those of conservative bent could become that prepared it would go a long way to assuring our freedoms. Cost of those preparations is a factor as well as time to accomplish such a plan. Again, well done, as you have come very close to striking the nail on the head dead center.
Unfortunatly, as so many times occur, many of us will probably be caught flat-footed and have to be twenty-first century minute men. Can’t say I wouldn’t be proud though to carry such a moniker.
