    It's BS.. They would be in violation of there Merchant Agreements with Visa and Mastercard if they were to try to limit, or deny any places of business that you could use your card.

    I wish people would verify these things before posting them. No link cited, and of course anyone can make a video these days, so count me as a disbeliever.

    What pains me is that this type of stuff is circulated with no attribution, no sources cited, and no means to validate it. People see it, get irritated about it, circulate it among friends, and effectively yell "See? This is what THEY are doing to us!!!" When the information turns out be wrong, or bogus, that makes "our side" look like idiots to those who would deny us our rights.

    So here's a simple rule: if you see something posted that gets you angry or raises your blood pressure, before you send it to all your email buddies or re-post it, CHECK IT OUT. Can you verify the truth behind it? If not, drop it. Let it STOP with YOU. Don't give the "other side" ammunition to flog us with.

    Bank of America denying gun related purchases using YOUR debit card. What!?!

    Bank of America is denying gun related purchases using YOUR debit card. YOUR money. Along with WalMart not stocking ammo, something is seriously amiss. How many coincidences must occur before we see the light?

    Wow. If that's really true than just wow. I've been too lazy to open up a new account somewhere else for too long... I think this one just pushed me over the edge.

    Well I just bought some ammo from Underwood about 45 seconds ago as a 'test' with my BoA debit card and it worked. I also bought a RIA 10mm from Cheaper Than Dirt last Wednesday with the same card and that worked as well.

    So far I'm a little skeptical of the claims.

    I don't know when they supposedly started but I've used my BofA debit card to pay for more than $1600 worth of AR stuff (including a rifle) since mid December. We're searching for a better bank anyway though.

    If no one can offer verifiable proof that this is true by sunrise Wednesday, this thread will be closed. We don't need to give legs to bogus info.

    Hey guys and girls a credit card and a debit card are two different animals. I cancelled my BOA credit card a week or so ago when they refused to service a gun wholesalers account because it was gun related. If it is debit card I don't see how they can justify doing so, that is your money, but if it is a credit card they can because it is a charge using their money pending your payment. An uncollected debt or basically a short term loan. Will there be repercussions? Yes I would imagine, but remember that they are one of the largest banking facilities in the US and the loss of a few thousand credit card customers would not even be a " bump in the road" to them.

    Canceling my BOA card has caused problems for me because I used it for everything. I did get a Visa card, not a debit card, from my credit union but with less than the $20K cap I had on the BOA card.

    Have any of you ever heard of snopes?

    snopes.com: Bank of America Gun Sales

    Read to the bottom

    We do ourselves no good spreading rumors. Take off your tin foil hats and let you brain have some air. We have to be united and not fall into all the rumors out there.
    I bought a case of duck loads, a box of .270's and two boxes of .45's yesterday at a LGS. Since December I have purchased two long guns and a revolver using my BOA card.

    Just like the threads last week about the Brady Bunch and some bogus ads that they supposedly did. If it looks stupid, sounds stupid, over the top, and fits in with how you view the world the best thing to do is google the crap out of it and see if it is true.

    I am always a doubter and google everything I see and look for multiple references before I post anything.

    Also...what Gasmitty said!
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
