    BAD: Credit Card Company Says No

    I suggest that if you can find in your inner self the will to inflict violence on someone who is trying to victimize you, and can back up that iron will with all the force that you can muster, you will most likely be successful.

    And yet another reason to add to the list of reasons I don't have a credit card.

    Credit Cards are Evil!
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I quit using credit cards. Paypal or other alternative methods work very well for me. Maybe more vendors will get on the boat for Paypal and the other methods. I think it's better all around. Credit card transactions actually cost us all in the long run no matter who we are or how we pay.

    Shredded my Citi-Bank cards years ago when I found out that they contribute to every anti-gun cause that comes to town.

    +1 I don't even like my debit card. I would rather pay with cash.

    Credit Card Processing Company Rejects Firearms Industry

    Refuses to Process Transactions

    Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp. are refusing to process any credit card transactions between federally licensed firearms retailers, distributors and manufacturers -- a move which will severely limit available inventory of firearms and ammunition to military, law enforcement and law-abiding Americans.

    First Data Confirms Anti-Gun Policy (1/9)

    NSSF Responds to First Data Letter (1/10)

    The first company to be affected by this decision appears to be firearms distributor CDNN Sports Inc.

    "We were contacted recently by First Data/Citi Merchant Services by a June Rivera-Mantilla stating that we were terminated and funds were being seized for selling firearms in a non-face-to-face transaction," said Charlie Crawford, president of CDNN Sports Inc. "Although perfectly legal, we were also informed that no transactions would be processed in the future, even for non-firearms. I find this very frightening."

    To voice your concern to Citi Merchant Services and First Data Corp., please call 303-488-8000 or toll-free 800-735-3362.

    To change to an NSSF-affiliated credit card processing program, contact Payment Alliance International at 1-866-371-2273 (ext. 1131).



    This should be illegal...
    Their cards should have a for a picture...
    I use a CC all the time, but never pay any interest...

    Stay armed...put it on my tab...stay safe!

    This is about the same as a store with a 'No Firearms' sign - do business elsewhere. These bozos aren't the only credit card company we have to choose from.

    I may be in the minority, but I actually earn money using my credit cards! By keeping funds in an interest bearing account, and paying all my credit cards in full every month, I make some money each month, not to mention all the free airline tickets/miles. If used wisely, they can be a benefit. It's also almost impossible to rent a car without one.

    As for the policy to deny FFL's access, that really stinks, but, as mentioned above, there are other credit card issuers to choose from.

    I was about to cancel a Citi card I wasn't using anymore... now I can tell them I'm canceling because of this policy. Sweet.

    This is going to backfire on them, as they've picked a political side.

    I doupt if Cabela's will deny FFL's access and the points for Cabela's products may not be free airline tickets/miles, but it sure is stuff I buy.

    Same here. Cabela's credit card points buy all my muzzleloading ammo and shot gun slugs.
