geico cancels insuranceAn SD reader has sent us his notification of cancellation of auto insurance from GEICO effective 1/22/13 due to the fact that ”the vehicle does not meet our underwriting guidelines because it is used in conjunction with a company that deals in the weapons industry”.

First Bank of America began confiscating the funds of firearms dealers, now GEICO believes it can cancel service for anyone working in the firearms industry. Who needs gun bans when the the banksters are more than willing to do the dirty work and pull strong armed corruption Chicago style stunts?

Submitted GEICO (Government Employees Insurance Company) notice of cancellation of insurance letter is below:

  1. Connecting the Dots
    Question Who has a signficant interest in B of A and Geico?
    Hint. Obama has a serious man crush on this fossil

    Here’s is what you can do. Cancel your Geico coverage!
    Look up all the companies owned by Dorkshire Halfawit and stop using them
    Start with Well Fargo and B of A. Then move down the list.
    Find companies that support Americans rights, not the preferences of the NWO, Agenda 21 and other elitist groups. It may be a bit incovenient but you can fight these bastards through your checkbook, wallet and patroage. Then send a letter to the president or CEO of that specific firm and tell them in no uncertain terms why you no long buy their products or services. Smash the gekko.
    This form of protest works better than voting the bums out.
    Can anyone find the list of BH companies and post it on Silver Doctors.

    • I once used GEICO’s on-line insurance quote system and was given a figure that was about $50 less than my current insurer.  At the very bottom of the page in small print was the fact that this was not an annual quote but a semi-annual quote.  Applying for this auto insurance would have nearly doubled my premiums.  Gee, thanks!  Whatta deal!!
      Maybe I should make up some shooting targets that have that silly gecko’s smiling face right in the cross-hairs?  lol

    • To give all of you some perspective on just how pervasive this company is, BH owns the Marmon Group, which includes in it’s portfolio an innocuous sounding company called Cerro Fabricated Products, which manufactures and assembles, none other than the Very Bushmasters that were sensationalized to start this whole thing. I wonder how they’re insured?

  3. What I find interesting is that this policy cancellation was mailed Dec 6, 2012…. before Sandy Hook.  Just another strange coincidence of events happening related to guns immediately before Sandy Hook…. akin to Biden promising private deals with mayors to have new gun restrictions in place in early 2013…….

  4. There’s a tremendous arrogance to this in that these people apparently feel like they can shit on anything to do with the gun industry without it coming back to bite them in the ass, hard.
    Folks, please pass this around to everyone you know who owns a gun and doesn’t want to see this kind of corporate discrimination against the industry and gun owners go unchecked.  Maybe if they suddenly lose a half a million customers they’ll have a glimmer of recognition of what a mistake they’re making by being good little handmaidens to Big Brother.

  5. Not that it matters, but the company in question is: Short Lane LLC506 Ponderosa DrMiles CityMT 59301
    Need to blank it out better! Policy number and I guess car is blanked out enough at this picture resolution.

    Can anyone independently verify this story? I’ve tried off and on all day with no luck. Even snopes listed it as undetermined 4 days ago. I’m callin’ BS on this one. Some dingleberry probably let his policy lapse, totaled his car the next day, was denied on his claim and dreamed up a way to “punish” Geico.
    Don’t get me wrong here, I boycott plenty of places with my wallet everyday but that list of companies to boycott includes Burlington Northern Santa Fe which probably transports 3/4 of everything you purchase including food. This link will show you who owns what in the consumer level health, beauty & food industry:×641.jpg This probably deserves it’s own post if the Doc is so inclined.

    • “Can anyone independently verify this story? I’ve tried off and on all day with no luck.” 

      Well if the person that found the llc name is correct on who owned that policy, then it would be pretty easy to call and ask….   assuming this is the same LLC Short Lane, they own this website

    • Indenturedservant:  When I read the Geico letter, posted above, it says that the policy is being cancelled because the customer was involved in the weapons industry . Geico admits it.
      I understand that this is a commercial policy, not a personal policy (from other reading), but that doesn’t matter.
      Geico has steeped out of bounds big time, and customers are mad as hell, and aren’t going to take it anymore.
      Geico is nobodies nanny. Warren Buffet is Obamas corporate fascist partner in this. Recall what B of A did recently to a firearms retailer.
      Geico is about to get bitten.

    Thank you for your replies. I have contacted the owner of Short Lane via email to ascertain the veracity of the letter of cancellation.
    My wife and I have a motorcycle policy through Geico since our car insurance servicer does not offer motorcycle coverage. If the letter above turns out to be true, we will be cancelling that policy immediately.
    I realize that Geico has every right to offer or revoke their services as they see fit and I wholeheartedly support that right but I have a right to spend my money where I see fit.

  8. Hey folks, I came across this thread from reddit. I am a long-time GEICO customer (not commerical, personal auto) and as a pro-2A person was all set to cancel my policy… but I figured I’d call them first to check it out. The manager I spoke with said that she had heard about this rumor but that she categorically rejected the assertion that they had cancelled a policy based on association with the firearms industry.
    She mentioned that the scanned document was a forgery, and that GEICO would not cancel a policy based on criteria like this.
    Given that I’ve had good service for many years with GEICO and that nobody else has been able to substantiate the claims above, I’m going to call BS until such time as the original poster comes forward with more detail.
