Credit Card Company Blocks Gun Purchases

A prominent credit card processing service quietly undermined our Second Amendment rights by unilaterally deciding to shut down payments on all gun purchases.

Firearm-related businesses were suddenly – and without warning – thrown into disarray when Intuit stopped processing credit card payments on all sales that were even tangentially gun-related. (New York Post)
