McMillan Group International wrote on their Facebook page yesterday that Bank of America no longer wants their business? Why? Because of the nature of the business: guns.

According to the company’s Facebook post. McMillan, one of the most well-known and respected brands in the firearms industry, had been “collectively banking with Bank of America for 12 years. Yesterday, however, after a meeting originally scheduled as an “account analysis” with Ray Fox, a Senior Vice President with Bank of America, McMillan was informed the bank no longer wanted their business.

The gun manufacturing company Remington is standing strong against NBC, which has been going after the manufacturer for what it deems a flaw that allows the gun to be fired without the trigger being pulled. Despite the fact that Remington and the plaintiff came to an agreement, NBC kept on pressing and indicated Remington has been hiding the truth for years.

Remington's statement is a strong response to what it indicates is much more than a concern about gun safety:

"NBC continues to attack Remington and the firearms industry through sensational and factually inaccurate reporting. On April 11, 2012, Brian Williams again demonstrated NBC’s anti-gun agenda with the claim that the Model 870, Model 1100 and other Remington firearms have a design flaw. That claim is demonstrably false and Remington stands fully behind the safety and reliability of the most popular shotguns in the world. It wasn’t enough for NBC to attack over 20 million Remington firearms; they also called the Second Amendment into question by suggesting that there is a need for increased government regulation of firearms. Model 870 and 1100 owners know the truth – these shotguns are used extensively under the most demanding conditions. Tens of billions of rounds have been fired through these firearms, which are valued for their performance and durability by millions of hunters, shooters, law enforcement and military personnel who have relied on Remington. As the basis for its attacks, NBC continues to rely upon paid “experts” who have been repeatedly hired by plaintiff’s attorneys to testify against Remington and at least 16 other firearms manufacturers. The facts show that the Model 870 and 1100 are two of the most reliable shotguns ever produced – only one lawsuit has been filed in the last seven years and no litigation is pending against the trigger mechanisms of these firearms. Deceptively editing and ignoring readily available documents and video evidence to drive NBC’s agenda is an all too familiar tactic. Remington stands by the reliability and safety of its firearms and will fully respond to NBC’s attempt to disparage these iconic American products."

NBC's integrity in this matter, according to the NRA-ILA, isn't spotless, either. They document why viewers should think twice about trusting NBC on this here.

Breaking information sent to this reporter moments ago via email from a contact in Anchorage, Alaska indicates that a local gun store has refused to comply with an order from the ATF to turn over to the agency the official 'Bound Book' that firearms retailers are required to keep on site on customers and their purchases, photo I.D.s, and background checks.

The store's refusal has provoked a confrontation with the ATF, which claims that the Bound Book is 'their property.'

An initial report was published here yesterday concerning this new illegal activity on the part of the ATF. 

According to a memo from the Anchorage Second Amendment Task Force, the Great Northern Guns store in Anchorage was asked to give their Bound Book to the ATF so it could be copied in its totality. The store refused, citing their legal rights and the fact that to do so would be a violation of the Firearms Owners Protection Act of 1986.
