Square point of sale

saw something interesting last night , the credit card possessing co. Square will no longer handle credit transaction for anything gun related. new sales, parts ammo what ever. some other card co also is doing the same in an effort to prevent merchants from selling guns and related things. their web sight also however shows now that they also wont handle several other types of transactions like drugs and other things... trying to strong arm retailers i guess.

Good way to go out of business. Other transaction processing companies will be happy to step in. If not, I'll start one.

What if the finance industry ó credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express; credit card processors like First Data; and banks like JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo ó were to effectively set new rules for the sales of guns in America?

Then gun owners would step in a finance their own. Then they would also have voice in who gets guns and who doesn't. Remember what Barret said when he left California. He wouldn't even sell them repair parts for the guns they had already bought.

what happens to companies like dicks, cabelas even walmart that sell guns, and lots of other stuff?

also, guessing some of the credit card processors, banks and the like have captains of industry that hunt, fish, shoot, and 2a.

I thought this was brought out some time ago, possibly as a result of the Obama/Holder 'Operation Chokepoint'?

Or, was that another processor?

i feel like most people that buy gun related things would be more inclined to use cash anyways.

Square has always been libtard. I made a point of signing up for a free one years ago to simply throw it in the trash. May need to do that a few more times now..........
