Gunmaker appears on Fox, bank releases funds

A lot of publicity helped a Scottsdale, Ariz. arms manufacturer out of a predicament with his bank.

As reported yesterday, Joe Sirochman, owner of American Spirit Arms, was having problems getting funds released from his company’s account with Bank of America.

He posted his frustrations on the company’s Facebook page and appeared Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “America Live” with Megyn Kelly.

According to the following Facebook page entry, Bank of America has now released American Spirit Arms’s funds and the company has taken its financial services business elsewhere.

I first want to thank all of you that have called, emailed and posted your support. I also wanted to post an update and to clear up some questions.

Bank of America started holding American Spirit Arms deposits for review on 12-18-12. Since that time we had to fight tooth and nail to get them released.

We have now gotten most of the deposits and have set up new accounts with a local bank.

Again I want to thank everyone for the outpour of support on this matter and believe because of you we were able to get our deposits.

    Bank of America paid out 3.1 billion this week in fines for misleading their customers on home loans, They froze this mans money, which is illegal. Who runs that bank? Obama? It took me 3 trips to close my account after a bunch of bull. One more thing? The idiot above my comment (Bobby Hogan) thinks it was Joe's fault that BOA froze his funds, bet he voted for Obama/

    Anyone heard ANYTHING from the Repuub "leadership" on this attempt to nullify our Second amendment Right? Where are these mice when the rubber meets the road? Well, I think Boehner's silence, and his lapdog personality tells us the fix is in. McConnell, well this mouse makes appearances only after the deal is settled.
