When I started my small business, I opened an account with Regions because I liked their online banking system and the fact that I could feed cash into the ATM with no deposit slip or envelope and it would be deposited to my account.
Today I was making the rounds and I drove past a Regions bank branch. From the street, I noticed the gun buster sign on the door. I turned around and went back to the bank and read the sign, which properly posts the place per the law. I hid my Glock in my truck and walked into the bank. I told the teller that I'd like to close my account and she asked me to have a seat and someone would be with me shortly.
A few minutes later a man identified himself as Eric and asked how he could help me. We went to his cubical and I told him that I wanted to close my account. He asked if there was a problem. I told him that my company policy prohibits me from keeping company funds in a bank that is posted with "no guns" signs. He asked "you do realize why a bank would prohibit guns, right?" I gave him a blank stare.
My account wasn't very large, so I don't imagine that the bank cares, but it is the principle. I got my business money out and now I'm shopping for a new bank.
