    Default 2a friendly bank?

    Started an LLC last week and I'm having some trouble securing a checking account in the company name. Turned away by 3 banks because I have Firearms in the name. I finally got TD to open an account by convincing the manager that I would not be buying and selling guns but only acting as a middle man for online transactions, receiving shipments and doing background checks. Any recommendations where to move the account?

    Could you name the LLC "Generic legal business LLC" and then do business as a company with Firearms in the title?

    So they’re cool with arms trafficking, just not the actual buying & selling?

    Makes sense

    There aren't any.

    The credit card companies are now sending info on gun purchases to the Feds.

    Trick is go local/small.
    I use Wayne Bank. When I asked about their position and how some banks are hostile toward gun shops the manager was confused why and was appalled a bank would do that to a legit business.

    If they are going to go that rout, then the ronnie barretts of the gun industry need to stand up.
