Gun Control Group Calls on Credit Card Companies
A notorious gun control group has called on credit card companies to track purchases of guns and ammunition to prevent mass shootings.
From Breitbart. Gabby Giffords’ gun control group, Giffords, is calling on major credit card companies to flag gun and ammunition purchases.
Giffords posted a tweet Sunday, which said, “The shooters in at least 5 mass shootings have stockpiled guns & ammo using credit cards and killed 145 people. Visa, Mastercard, and American Express have the power to flag suspicious purchases and save lives. Call on them to act.”
The tweet linked to a campaign by another gun control group called GunsDownAmerica.
In some of the examples cited by GunsDownAmerica, the attackers purchased their guns and ammunition over a 12-month timeframe.
GunsDownAmerica wants major credit card companies to stop categorizing firearm and firearm-related purchases as “sporting goods,” creating a new category into which gun and ammo purchases can be scrutinized.
