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)

Probably part of the 3 billion dollar settlement they just did with the government on home foreclosures........ we'll only whack you 3 billion if you don't loan money to any gun manufacturer...

Time for the Chinese to move in....

Tonight on Piers Morgan, smarmy Morgan will interview the person who started the White House petition calling for Morgan's deportment. I hope Morgan can keep a civil tongue in his fat head.

Morgan said on a pre-show interview that England's ban on assault weapons was the reaction to a Newtown-like massacre in (I think he said) Wales. After the Brits banned assault weapons, England's death toll due to guns declined to 35. That's right...3-5.

Why not try a ban on new assault weapon sales and see what happens?

Ah, but this isn't about loans.

It's about bank deposits.

The gun seller wants to be able to actually use money it has deposited in its bank account. The bank is denying it access to that money, because the bank does not approve of the company's lawful business.

Simple answer: fire the bank.

Unfortunately, that can take some effort and expense when you're a big company.

It's going to take effort no matter who you are. Obviously, the bank has to be fired. Transferring the funds, however, is going to require access to them, and that's what the bank is denying.

Funny aside. I went to the firing range yesterday just to keep my skills up. Walked up to the check in counter to get a lane and they guy said "You have a valuable commodity right there". Ok, I have two pistols, neither of them that special. I guess from the quizzical look on my face he answered "Your ammo".

I guess its getting harder to find. I just thought it was the Christmas rush/hunting season last time I was in Bass Pro.

and liberals keep claiming that no one needs to store "large" amounts of ammo.

They are wrong of course, we need to store "large" amounts of ammo because liberals keep trying to eliminate the sources of ammo. If ammo was cheap and plentiful, no one would need (or want) to hoard it.

I'm thinking the next time I'm in Bass Pro I'll get an ammo storage box and a few thousand rounds. Just because.

I was in Wal-mart a few days ago and I bought three boxes of CCI 22 CB Shorts (100 shells/box), 300 shells. The Wal-marts here in town have been out of those particular kinds of shells for about a month and I almost ran out. Tragedy! <grin> The total cost was like ~ $28.00+ ?

The 22 CB short is a sub-sonic little shell that doesn't make a lot of noise since it is sub-sonic, ~ 750 feet/second. It's pretty nice! You should try it.
