    I received a facebook message from my favorite gun store today. American Express is having a "Small Business Saturday" event after black friday. Gives Am Ex users a $25 credit on their card to shop at registered stores that are truly small business's. Great! Except... firearms dealers are excluded as being "controversial".

    Well... needless to say, I won't be using my American Express card this year. Or in the future.

    *For the purpose of this Program, qualifying small businesses include small, locally-owned storefront and online businesses with $10 million in annual revenue or less. Businesses in the following industries are excluded: government agencies, charities, non-profits, trade associations, shopping property management firms, political, religious and educational organizations. Small businesses that are part of a franchise brand with more than 100 stores are excluded. Additionally, if a franchise brand has more than 20 corporate-owned units, then the entire brand is excluded. Small businesses that promote any of the following are not eligible for the Program: pharmaceuticals, drugs, politics, pornography or sexual aids, diet aids, gambling, liquor, tobacco, firearms/weapons, or any sensitive topic with respect to current events.

    Oh but you don't get upset over no Diet Aids business's?

    Are we really this picky and petty?

    If they had singled out only Firearms/weapons then maybe but it appears to me they also aren't extending it to your local Christain book store. So its the fact that some people like guns and some people don't they chose not to be involved.

    They also aren't extending it to Taco Bell or Midus mufflers NAPA.
