No, I’m not posting on that turbo-moron Feinstein’s anti-freedom bill she introduced. In anything close to a sane America she’d be laughed right out of DC. But this is no longer sane America, is the far-left neo-Marxist Obamerika. So anything goes, and if that utterly unconstitutional piece of crap known as Obamacare not only passed but survived examination by the Supreme Court - all due to the turncoat actions of ONE SINGLE MAN - then I would not hazard a guess as to whether DiFi’s insult to America will flourish or founder. At best it’s a crap shoot. But meanwhile, here’s another assault on guns, and an assault on legitimate business at the same time.
It is SO time to push that Reset Button, and push it HARD.
First it was Bank of America. Now this.
LEIPER’S FORK, Tenn. - A Williamson County gun dealer recently learned a credit card processing company no longer wants to do business with him.
“We go through all the hoops and all the steps and at the end of the day it’s still a struggle to get the same services anybody else would,” said Nick McMillan.
He owns Leiper’s Fork Firearms. It is a small gun dealership McMillan runs out of his home.
“We’re set up like a business, just like every other small business out there,” he said.
McMillan is a has a federal firearms license and is heavily regulated by both the state and federal governments.
But McMillan received an email from Intuit Payment solutions informing him the company was no longer interested in processing his credit card sales.
“They either reviewed several accounts, or it was a company wide policy, because I wasn’t the only federal firearms license dealer that got pushed out the other day,” McMillan said.
In the email the company wrote “Intuit does not support the services you are providing” and then the reason stated was firearms, ammunition, gun parts and accessories sales not sold in a face-to-face environment with the credit card being swiped.
McMillan does not know the exact reason behind the policy change, but speculated the nationwide gun debate may be behind the move.
“I think companies like this are so afraid of any negative publicity they’d rather not participate,” McMillan said.
The small business owner said the move by Intuit will not stop him from selling guns.
“Intuit Processing isn’t my only option, I am set up with another company that’s a lot more friendly to the industry,” said McMillan.
He does feel as if the company is discriminating against federally licensed gun dealers.
“It’s up to them who they provide the service to, at the end of the day,
Golly gee, it’s almost too bad the guy was able to find another processing center. Otherwise he would have had to become a cash-only business, which would provide an even lower level of firearms purchase traceability.
For all morons, sheep, low information voters, willfully blind persons and liberals (but I repeat myself), there is no such thing as a direct online sale of firearms in the USA, nor has there been since 1968. The Gun Control Act of 1968 made guns by mail illegal, and internet sales are no different than the old paper catalog sales. Any firearm purchased MUST be shipped to a federally licensed gun dealer, almost always at the buyer’s cost (~$40) and then a NICS check is run on the buyer before the sale is completed. Period. Full stop. No Ifs, Ands, or Buts. The whole “online sales” thing is bullshit smoke and mirrors designed to upset the stupid and unaware, and to get them to react emotionally. Which is how Leftism works: if anyone ever stopped and thought anything through, they’d never get a single vote.

How long do you think they are going to keep this up Knowing as they do that it will cost Every Single One of the red state senators and house members their jobs? Can they really be this blind? I sure as Fuck Hope So.
Yes Rich, they will. If the red state D’s get voted out, they can always come right back in as czars and other political appointees. Look up Jon “seatbelts” Corzine, the former EPA chief Lisa “superfund” Jackson, et al.
I am sure that other providers will take up the slack, and the business will save money. Intuit charges a higher rate to use a card than many other card processing companies.
I for one have no problem pulling out cash from my hidden stash to pay for my next firearm. In fact, I might decide to fork over the $14 in entrance fees to go to the next gun show and buy it from a private seller.
