Visa, Mastercard, AMX to Track Gun Purchases Stemming from congressional letter sent on September 13th 2022 to: Visa, Mastercard, and American Express CEO’s; US Senator Josh Hawley (MO.) brought to light national news of the Big 3 Credit Card companies‘ intentions that will track firearm and firearm related purchases. One group might think this is a great idea, while others may think it’s a terrible one. Well, let’s evaluate what’s at risk, and what potential outcomes may occur. Senator Josh Hawley, Header Letter to Visa, AMX, Mastercard. Senator Hawley confronts 2 main issues that are reasons for concern. The first being a potential abuse of power by big: Banks, Tech, and Government; and secondly being the law-abiding citizen potential for being discriminated by institutions. Additional we have our own reason of concern which hasn’t been voiced by the senator or other leading gun advocacy groups. Our concern is the following: if these institutions can track and create a registry of lawful gun and gun related purchases, they can easily have “database breaches“, which would then have private information go public. Law-abiding citizens, then could be potentially targeted for home invasions and their information distributed to target their financial wellness and civil liberties. Other target forms of harassment could be a barrier for those firearm purchasing individuals. Which translates to not being able to make any or all purchases, because they are on a blacklist so to say. These lists have potential to create RedFlags in their financial credit scores, or possibly have purchases denied, as the big 3 could ban transactions at sporting good locations. Its flat-out financial discrimination, and an attack on civil liberties, and free will. Not to mention, this “data collection” of firearm and firearm related products that are purchased, would be sold off to the highest bidder. Just like Facebook and Google’s targeted ads, they will use the data to attract and attack 2A enthusiast. A question of thought for these Big 3 financial institutions, why haven’t they done the same for pedophiles and adult store purchases? Maybe they have skeletons in their closet. You can see why if one points allegations without proof towards one thing, it can be done to everyone, in any business setting or towards any consumer purchase behavior. Oh, there’s a thought! This affects the economics of consumer behavior! Which ultimately will alienate small businesses and not big corporations. At the end of the day, it always comes down to extreme irrational behavior of one group of people, that affects the law-abiding citizen. If Visa, Mastercard, and American Express want to list credit card purchasing codes for consumer purchases and create a consumer data base; maybe conspiracy theorist or critical thinkers (as I prefer to say), their argument of a cashless society by using all digital currency, will be the downfall of American civil liberties, because they can track and limit your ability of free will. The Financial institutions will be the master, and anyone that uses an all based digital currency will be a slave, and at the will of their master. A collective group of individuals and think tank organizations, have realized they cannot go to your throat and ban the constitution; but they have the ability to create barriers, control your finances, and eventually get full control and obedience of the general population. This is a step in that direction. If you don’t like what you just read, be proactive, call your senators, and support gun advocacy groups that are proactive.
