Yes.
Bank of America Corp is preparing to provide critical financing to Remington Outdoor Co, which makes assault-type rifles, just weeks after the U.S. bank said it would stop financing “military-style” firearms for civilians.

Why do you think that might be?

Because of a late found sense of fair play?

No.

They were contacted by many folks, like you and I who told them they were planning on changing their banking company.

Keep it up!

Actually, their reason for recommitting the financing for Remmington has to do with commitments. The worse message a bank can send out when is that they are willing to back out of a previous commitment, that they can't be trusted and taken for their word.

Remmington previously promised support for Remmington financing, to back out now would send out a very clear message that their promises and their word mean nothing. BoA is just as commited as ever to not support the firearms industry or 2nd amendment supporters. They have been a willing and eager participent of Obama's Operation Choke Point.

And BofA doubling down and will probably sell the Remington loan to someone else as soon as Remington exits bankruptcy.

Bank of America said on Thursday it was standing by its pledge to stop financing civilian assault weapons and suggested it may be preparing to exit a loan for gun maker Remington Outdoor Corp that sparked criticism of the lender.

Bank of America could have faced potential legal action and damages if it had backed out of its commitment to provide the Remington financing, particularly if the company failed to emerge bankruptcy.

In addition, the bank was concerned about its reputation for standing by lending commitments if it reneged on its Remington financing, according to a source familiar with the bank’s thinking.

Yep. I knew this was going to be the case. If they do give up on this idiotic stand it will be really quietly.
