U.S. Bank Dropping Gun Owners
It seems that U.S. Bank considers anyone who owns a firearm or supports the firearm industry as a liability or presents a “high risk.” This was the message relayed to me yesterday from one of my distributors (who will remain unnamed for their privacy). This distributor is being cut off completely and being forced to do business elsewhere. This is what U.S. Bank had to say: “They were ending their relationship… due to the risk associated with the firearms industry.”
This is extremely disheartening to hear when U.S. Bank continues to do business with the rest of the world, but singles out anyone who believes in our 2nd Amendment Right.
The aforementioned distributor also had this to say:
“In addition, one of our retailers informed us that U.S. Bank decided to close both their personal and commercial accounts. This retailer had done business with U.S. Bank since 1992. He was given a very brief time window to transition his business to another bank.”
I thought that 23 years of business and support actually meant something in this day and age, but I stand corrected. If anyone in a personal or business capacity has accounts with U.S. Bank I would be cautious about continuing business with them. They might show you the same treatment, and resentment towards your ideals as these businesses and individuals who have already gotten the ax.

I hope that U.S. Bank can see the error in their ways and not truly try to cut such a significant portion of the Unites States’ population because they don’t share the same disdain for firearms as maybe their chief executives do. Only time will tell…
