This is ridiculous.

No bank has the right to tell me how to spend my money.

I will accept that credit cards have limits; that makes good sense, and I accept that the bank can tell me how much money I can spend on their bank=issued credit card.  But what I do with the credit up to that limit is not the bank’s business.

And yet: Banks, Credit-Card Companies Explore Ways to Monitor Gun Purchases

Banks and credit-card companies are discussing ways to identify purchases of guns in their payment systems, a move that could be a prelude to restricting such transactions, according to people familiar with the talks.

Sorry for those of you who don’t subscribe to the WSJ, but that’s where the article is.

I was not aware that banks and credit card companies were branches of BATFE.  To do what they propose looks like a violation of the First, Second, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, to me.

The more this kind of thing keeps popping up, the sooner the revolution is going to start.  Like I said a few posts down, I sure as hell hope it starts before I’m too old to take an active part.
