Credit Card-Buy Only Gun Law Would Make Confiscation a Snap

The anti-gun left has made serious strides against our Second Amendment rights in the last couple of years. Both in terms on demonizing gun owners and in the courts.

Perhaps the worst law to be adopted is the so-called red flag laws. These laws generally make it easy for local law enforcement agencies to confiscate any individual’s guns based on an anonymous, unsupported tip. There is no due process, and the targeted individual then bears the responsibility of proving he or she is not dangerous. The gun owner also has to convince a judge he or she should have their confiscated firearms returned—which rarely happens. The process involves court filings, lawyers, hearings, and incredibly expensive legal fees.

Recently, anti-gun activists have come up with a new way to infringe on our right to bear arms. Instead of targeting gun owners with a new bill, they are going after the merchant accounts of gun retailers. They are pressuring credit card companies into terminating the accounts of gun retailers so that no one can buy a gun with a credit card.

Several gun sellers have had their merchant accounts effectively canceled for no reason other than the fact that they are in the business of selling guns.

These are serious advances against our constitutionally protected right to self-preservation, and they should stand as evidence- for anyone who is not yet convinced- that we are facing a political enemy that wants us to be unable to defend ourselves.

We should not need to explain to you that that is as evil as it is historically connected to direct, physical human rights abuses, including mass internment, arbitrary arrest, and even mass murder at the hands of the state. 

Anti-gunners do not require wide-spread federal mandates- or even actual legislation to take ground against our right to bear arms. Instead, their new dirty trick to infringe on our rights come through pressuring financial service providers to withdraw their support from businesses they don’t like, i.e. gun retailers.

Another big move against our gun rights will contain both legal and economic pressure as a means of suppressing our ability to be secure in our persons and property. Democrats have proposed a bill that would require any purchase of a firearm or firearm-related products made with a credit card to be reported to the federal government. This would create a de facto registry not only for gun owners, but for anyone who made a purchase even tangentially related to guns.

Items that would be tracked include body armor, night-vision goggles, ammunition containers, and camouflage clothing. The list goes on and on. So far, the bill does not require payments made in cash or by check to be tracked. Undoubtedly, any gun buyer who does not want to go on such a list would use these more traditional means of payment. But, of course, any gun owner knows guns and their accessories are expensive. Having the cash on hand when you need a new firearm or accessory doesn’t always happen.

At present, these laws are only being floated in California and Virginia. Virginia has also been the target of serious moves against the Second Amendment recently. There, anti-gun groups have been setting up “Second Amendment Sanctuary” zones. These are areas where citizen’s right to bear arms are not respected- and these are not restricted to a mall or a school. They encompass entire towns and counties.

  1. This country and the world would be a better place if the anti-gunners were faced with a real threat and started screaming for a gun to protect themselves.
    It is the common practice of socialist governments to disarm all citizens prior to a complete takeover.

  2. Last paragraph of the article is exactly opposite the truth. The Second Amendment Sanctuaies are locations the local population/government/law enforcement declared they will not support laws which violate the Constitution, thereby protecting the Second Amendment. One of the bills which Governor supported and was passed, allowed individual cites to pass laws restricting use/carry of firearms. These restricted areas are not the Second Amendment Sanctuaries..

  3. I might suggest that the states who support out Second Amendment right pass laws to tell the federal government to butt out

  4. Say hello to the underground and colossal smuggling followed by World War Three.

  5. They can’t pass a law like this one! It would be DISCRIMINATORY! How would criminals without credit cards buy guns. I mean, if we are going to give criminals the right to vote, you can’t tell me that some liberal idiot won’t claim that they have the right to buy guns.

  6. Sounds like castration is the answer to these scum.

  7. If anyone comes for mine & I don’t care who they are…GAME OVER!

    1. Soldier,
      I’m with you on that score. Get off my property or leave with a circular opening between your eyes, approximately 45/100 of an inch in diameter.

  8. Do you think the people in Afghanistan would like to have weapons’ ie second amendment rights?

  9. One should only buy guns with cash anyway. Credit card purchase is just one more way to trace the purchase(s). Articles like this should retailiate by posting the “banks” that cancel business accounts like this so we can retaliate against them.

    1. I try to buy as little as possible with debit/credit cards. ATMs and cash are my preferred method to buy veerything except gas.

  10. Our Commander in Cohort With the Enemy, J Biden can’t even control the guns and weaponry he has under his authority. He just dumped a massive amount into the black market of the world.

    ith the enemy

  11. Perhaps this is an opportunity for a new credit card specializing in firearms. Think of it, 54,000 dealers selling to millions of the most reliable and lawful customers in the U.S. Seems a natural shift in the entire industry.

    Any personal credit card (I have two) that denied the purchase of ANY legal item based on opinion rather than law, would be terminated. And I’d acquire a firearm credit card and use it for other products as well.

    1. My thoughts exactly. And let the card issuer/business canceller why you are dropping them.

  12. If we take the wording of the amendment (which I do)literally such action would be infringing upon the rights of those who do not have or cannot acquire a credit card.
    There was talk that Trump supporters required some re-education, well it seems the LEFT needs to be re-educated regarding the English language. Hell, Nancy wants to change the definition of “machine gun”.

  13. When it comes to any Amendment of the United States Constitution, not a singular inch must be given. The Constitution was crafted by minds far superior to the dumbed-down brainwashed clotting prats we suffer with, today. Not an inch.

  14. The recession/inflation definition changers need instructions on the “Shall Not” truly means.
