Eventually, they will squeeze us out, may not in our lifetime, but they will get there.

What we need is are DIY techniques for brass, powder, and primer.

Meaningless restrictions on firearms are impossible. Home-made guns are too easy.

But home-made ammo? Reloading depends upon supplies that can be made unavailable.

This is an instructable for how to make gunpowder from its basic chemcials. The cost is initially expensive for the scale and ballmill (a little over 100$) but once you have those parts all you need is the chemcials which are relatively cheap.

I agree that it is troublesome this type of stuff is happening. However, I think one of two things will happen if it spreads more: Either lawsuits will happen that stops the discrimination or the market will see the higher demand and someone will rise to meet the demand.

Political correctness really wrecks the world though, doesn't it?

So will they process transactions if I buy ammo and such or is this a blanket no business with them? Like midway and such is what I am talking about.

I keep waiting for the "market" to deliver solutions with businesses filling in the voids, but it doesn't seem to be happening yet.

Do we know for certain these publicity stunts are actually creating problems?

Typical virtue signaling

Since cutting off the few gun makers they had as customers cost them virtually nothing, the bank saw much greater value in the free media attention and PR benefits of announcing they won’t finance AR makers.


What about the bank’s customers that sell America’s favorite rifles?

Asked whether the bank also would stop doing business with retailers that sell assault weapons, Finucane said it would involve complicated issues related to civil liberties and the Second Amendment. “That’s a good public dialogue that’s a ways off,” she said.


If the bank has significant retail customers (Bass Pro, Academy, Cabela’s, etc.) whose business they don’t want to lose, then that “public dialogue” will never happen.

To your comment:

1. Lawsuits won't work, because the courts are full of liberal judges who legistrate on the bench. Trump is not putting conservative judges in there fast enough, and he's about to be taken out by a porn star.

2. After the banks take out the major gun maker, the liberals will move in to impose high tax on ammo, and the remaining guns, and gun parts. By then, guns, and gun parts will be so scarce, and too expensive to own.

I disagree. If the Trump Presidency has taught us anything is that we should pay no mind to those who say it can't be done. "They" said a trade war with China would be devastating for us, and now China is talking compromise. "They" said there'd be a nuclear war with North Korea and now DPRK is trying to decide how to disarm - not WHETHER to disarm, but HOW. "They" said Trump can't possibly build a wall, but the temporary budget deal leaves a lot of wiggle room to pay for prototypes and get the project started. The list goes on and on. Every time "they" think he can't do something, he does it.

While there have been some recent setbacks from the courts, the game has only started. We need to put up a fight, but we have an advantage - we're fighting for rights, and they're trying to take them away.

In addition, where there's money to be made, someone will be there. The only for-profit businesses stupid enough to walk away from profits are those who don't see anything to gain by staying. If they do leave profit on the table, someone will step in to take it. That's what capitalism does.

Don't even get me started on Bank of America. I rarely swear but them effers are certainly just that. I told them off years ago when they effed me over big time. To much trama to go over here but suffice it to say I keep their card open only to not hurt my credit rating and make one transaction a month of less than $5 in order to maintain it. My purchasing goes almost exclusively to another card that knows how to treat customers right.
