Bank of America (BoA) has taken a uniquely un-American position on the peoples right to keep and bear arms. It appears that BoA does not believe in the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights.
In a letter to a BoA client Anne Finucane, Vice Chairman of the Bank of America, writes:
We operate in and support communities throughout the United States. Our employees have been touched directly and indirectly by mass shootings from military style firearms in many of those communities.
[ … ]
Firearms with military characteristics have been used in many of these recent tragedies, including in schools in Florida and Connecticut.
Bill Little explains how this false narrative impacts every American’s civil right to self-defense:
BoA is focused on the weapon of choice of the criminal rather than the facts. The most recent FBI data shows that knives, clubs, fists and feet account for 75.8% of all the weapons used during “aggravated assaults.” The BoA and VP Finucane don’t have their facts straight, nor are they focused on actually reducing crime in communities. Disarming law abiding citizens in “the communities throughout the United States” they serve is a disservice.
Finucane goes on to state in her letter:
We have firearms industry clients who do not manufacture this type of firearm. But we are engaging the limited number of clients who do, to learn their plans to keep this type of firearm from being used in mass shootings. In those discussions, we have indicated it is our intent that we will not finance the manufacture of this type of firearm for non-law enforcement, non-military use. We want to understand what those clients are doing to end mass shootings, and what we can do to help. [Emphasis added]
Manufacturers of firearms are not responsible for the misuse of their products in criminal activities. Just as auto manufacturers are not responsible for the use of their cars in a bank robbery, hit and run or use in a terrorist attack.
The responsibility lies with the individual who commits the crime. That is why we have laws against murdering others.
So who is really responsible for planning to keep others from murdering? Where was the real breakdown?
In a Daily Signal column titled “Same Policies That Failed to Stop Florida Shooter Exist in School Districts Nationwide” Jonathan Butcher concludes:
Broward County officials must now explain to grieving families that the school discipline strategy they called “the most comprehensive thinking available to address socially unacceptable or illegal behavior” failed to stop a school shooting.
Meanwhile, dozens of school systems around the country are following the federal guidelines. This widespread adoption and the terrifying failure of PROMISE makes the White House’s call to rescind federal guidelines that mirror PROMISE a timely and fitting response to Parkland.
So government, not manufacturers, created this culture of mass murder. But you see government never wants to take the blame. They are happy when companies like BoA shift the blame and blame the blameless.
