but this is what it says:

"A credit card categorization code that could improve the tracking of gun sales was approved by an international panel that sets standards for the payments industry, according to New York City Comptroller Brad Lander and Amalgamated Bank."


and who voted for these International Tyrants to come along and 'improve' their lives on our backs???

I don't find this as concerning as some people apparently do. It's not like the credit card companies didn't already know which merchants are selling guns. Heck, my favorite gun store has "Gun Range" as part of their name -- the name which shows up on the receipt and on my credit card statement already.

Besides, I'm sure the ATF has already provided their buddies in the credit card companies the list of all FFL holders, and the address(es) of their places of business, so that any charges on a card can be identified faster than you can put the card back in your wallet after swiping it.

This "categorization code" might do something in countries outside the US that I'm unaware of, but in the US this isn't giving the credit card companies any new information that they didn't already have, nor is it making it significantly easier for them to identify gun store related charges.

We're all in this together and this is for the greater good. You don't want Grandma getting gunned down while at church, do you?

It makes it easier to sift through data for Big Gov.'s ATF instead of paperwork records. IMO

no, i don't want any more hurt, to go out, to any more of our wonderful Grandmothers, Bless Their Souls!

but what surprises me is how interested in our Grandmothers Safety 'they' now are...after killing so many, across the last several years, why would they want to save any of 'em now?
Right… now they are tracking because they weren’t b4.
but they had access to all of the information we were forced to provide over the last decade or two...

it would appear, those records are no longer available to them, what do you think?

and i'm not interested in building my own cage...cash and carry if you really got to have some and didn't store enough nuts across the last few years...cash and carry, no id transactions because your legal business is your own

:summer:

Makes it easier than what they did before.
we are their 'data input', unpaid labor because they say so...or no ID for you...my local DMV had me punch in all my information, the last go around, i, along with everyone else, built their data system for them, we input our own information, i saw guys older than me, locals, data input their own info

had to save the state millions of dollars yet, i never heard a peep from anyone else

if you give a monkey something to do, they're probably not gonna sling any poo

yeah?

we've devolved backwards...

:monkey piss:

Yet another use for bitcoin.

If this takes off credit card companies might fade into oblivion,

I believe that credit card tracking isn't something new. They've had the ability to do so since the first time anyone swiped their card and created an electronic file of what they were purchasing. There are a lot of windowless building across this county that keep track of what we are doing with our money that is of no real concern to anyone. Once a electronic file is made the only restriction on data mining is not really a problem at all.

Even our debit cards are probably being tracked. We are tracked so much that we shouldn't stop short or our butt will be hurting.

They will know who buys Hi-Point pistols. There will be no place to hide from the shame.

Some of you may be on to something with the idea they already have that data stream. The reason for this may be to let you know they know, intimidation.
The counter is to pay via credit and buy even more weaponry to let THEM know.
Biden was right about one thing, the citizens don't have F-15's. It's quite astounding a sitting president posturing a threat against the country's own people. But I think of what a friend of mine says. I may not win a gunfight against our overlords but I can make it pretty messy. That and knowing Joe Bloe has the ability to make it difficult may be enough to keep these jackboots away.
