The targeted customers included those who made purchases at “weapons-related merchants” in early January. The report suggested that the nation’s second largest bank turned the private information over voluntarily rather than in response to a subpoena. Bank of America’s willing collaboration with federal law enforcement at the expense of its customers highlights the broad threat posed by those that would commandeer ostensibly private banks and payment processors to undermine Second Amendment rights.

There were more than 2.7 million checks in January 2020 and that was a record. At that time, no one knew what the rest of 2020 would hold. At that time, breaking three million NICS checks in a single month was a rarity…though it became commonplace by the end of the year.
