    Visa/Gun Control? Obama Style

    It is time to cut up your VISA and start paying with cash. They only hear the sound of money and will only respond to the lose of that sound.

    Credit card firm cuts off nation's No. 1 gun store --- for selling guns | WashingtonExaminer.com
    ~
    A subsidiary of Visa, a key Obama campaign donor, that specializes in credit card transactions has abruptly stopped servicing the nation’s largest gun store after four years because the store sells guns, a fact the owners never hid.
    ~
    Hyatt Gun Shop of Charlotte, N.C., told Secrets that the subsidiary, Authorize.net/CyberSource, simply sent an email to owner Larry Hyatt to announce that it was suddenly breaking off the business relationship. The reason: “The sale of firearms or any similar product.”
    ~
    The company email said that gun sales violated a section of the service agreement the two signed over four years ago and after Hyatt went into detail about its sales and products -- and name.
    ~
    “We’ve never seen anything like this,” said Justin Anderson, Hyatt’s marketing director. He said it took a week and thousands of dollars to line up a “gun friendly” credit card processor for online sales.
    ~
    The brushoff of Hyatt's business has sparked a national boycott effort against Authorize.net and parent company CyberSource organized by the website Grass Roots North Carolina. “It looks like the small but noisy anti-gun crowd has gotten to what must be a jelly-spined PR department at CyberSource and Authorize.Net. Either that, or leadership at these companies have simply become anti-gun all on their own,” said the website in announcing the boycott.

    FUNNY HOW PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT THE TRUTH AS LONG AS IT'S WHAT THEY WANT TO HEAR

  5. I don't use credit cards. However, I wonder if they are the ones that issue the visa debit cards. If so, I consider an anti gun slant to be a violation of moral contract.

    It is all about Visa.

    The fact that Visa wants to make money off what I purchase and then is going to tell me what I am allowed to buy through Authorize.net. It isn't going to happen.

    Visa is the problem, they are the ones making the decisions (that hasn't trickled down to everyone yet) to support anti-gun tactics giving the administration an avenue other than Congressional action. When they loose money because of decisions made their stock holders will dictate otherwise. With publicly owned corporate entities it is always about the bottom line and only about the bottom line. NO ONE is going to offset that lose for them, for any political statement they are trying to make about gun control.

    I have a Cabela's Club Visa, also a Scheel's Visa. I wonder if they know what these large chains sell?
