    This is in a number of posts last year, but I didn't see a thread.


    As a reminder - this is one of the ways our rights are being attacked.

    "Go to a gun show, and you won’t find many merchants using PayPal.
    You’ll also find few vendors using popular payment processors such as Square, Stripe and Spark Pay.
    That’s because some payment processors explicitly prohibit the use of their systems for online — and some in-store — sales of firearms, ammunition and certain accessories."


    We just need someone to open up a private bank to support the Local Gun Shops and Private Sales.

    There are a number of links here to point to further information:

    Im disappointed bitcoin got completely ignored by the gun community. Much cheaper than credit cards (1% fees of which the purchaser pays), can be instantly turned into USD to avoid the price fluctuations by several companies now. No central bank or government that controls it.

    This is exactly what bitcoin is designed for.

    I am not opposed to electronic bits to represent money. And that can be the solution.


    But Bit Coin being the early adapter may have been a bit too early.

    It would be nice if the nra or one one those high profile money grabbers open their own bank and allow these Americans to prosper.

    I hope these shops sue the crap out of the DOJ and the gubment and win enough money to fund their own businesses for the next 10 life times.
    How does this not infringe on an American's right to prosperity, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

    Try a choke point reversal, always buy with cash and you cut the banks out of 8% on every purchase. Vote with your money.o_O

    "OPERATION CHOKE POINT STRIKES AGAIN: Small Business Owner Says Bank Denied Service Because She Sells Guns. “Some Republican lawmakers allege that banks like SunTrust are actually following guidance handed down to them by federal regulators.”

    Operation Choke Point is a conspiracy to deprive people of their civil rights, and should be treated as such.

    "On May 7, Craig called TD Bank seeking a new line of credit to buy inventory and produce advertisements for her small, 23-year-old storefront, Michael’s Pawn and Gun.

    When a TD Bank representative pulled up the shop’s Facebook page and discovered that it sells guns, Craig says the representative told her, “We can’t lend to anyone who sells firearms.”"
