For the last four years the Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, NC has been doing business with what was supposed to be a “gun friendly” credit card company to handle all of their online transactions.

The credit card company is Authorize.net/CyberSource, a subsidiary of Visa, and oh– it’s a major Obama campaign donor.  Well the gun shop in Charlotte which happens to be America’s largest gun shop has just found out that the credit card company is dropping them.  And they are no longer working with the gun shop for the following reason:

Because the Hyatt Gun Shop sells guns.  Actually the official wording was, ““The sale of firearms or any similar product.”

The Washington Examiner has reported that the gun shop received an email from the credit card processor with this message:

Authorize.Net LLC (“Authorize.Net”) has determined that the nature of your business constitutes a violation of Section 2.xiv of the Authorize.Net Acceptable Use Guidelines and Sections 3.3 and 11.3 of the Authorize.Net Service Agreement (the “Agreement”). These sections include, but are not limited to, the sale of firearms or any similar product. Accordingly, pursuant to Section 4 of the Acceptable Use Guidelines, your ability to access and use the Authorize.Net Services will be terminated on September 30, 2013.

The gun shop NEVER hid the fact that it sold guns, and Authorize.net would have to be amazingly ignorant to miss the fact that the name of the shop was Hyatt GUN SHOP.  What did they think they sold?

This move by the Visa subsidiary has prompted a nationwide boycott of the company which has been organized by Grass Roots North Carolina.

“It looks like the small but noisy anti-gun crowd has gotten to what must be a jelly-spined PR department at CyberSource and Authorize.Net. Either that, or leadership at these companies have simply become anti-gun all on their own,” said the website in announcing the boycott.

The timing of this move by Authorize.net comes on the heels of President Obama calling for more change in the aftermath of the Navy Yard shooting.

The gun shop’s marketing director Justin Anderson said, “We’ve never seen anything like this.”  Adding that it took a week and thousands of dollars to setup a credit card processor for the website that could gun sales.

    Good by Visa, I have other Credit Cards that I can use, ones that will not be involved with violating the 2nd Amendment. Who gave them the right to try to strong arm it’s customers into not buying Guns. Are we seeing the results of a Power play from the Obama Group? seems he can change the Bill of Rights. to suit his own agenda. He has already tried to remove any reference to God in our Schools. He has forgotten that this country was founded on the belief in God and the Bill of Rights.

      You obviously have never actually read the constitution. It never says anything about God and many of the founding fathers of this country were openly agnostic and atheists.
      Read the Constitution… The first sentence of the first Amendment states that

      “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”

        Seriously? Perhaps one should actually read the Federalist Papers. It is to prevent creating a “national religion”…i.e.: The Church of the United States, as was common in Britain. And, to keep religion from becoming entangled in government. Christianity is not being established as a religion…it already IS a religion, just not a “national religion”. Paul Hamilton is half-right. Our country was founded to allow us freedoms that were not afforded to colonials under the thumb of King George. Including what faith you belonged to.

        James. It is perhaps you who need to do a little reading.” We hold these truths to be self evident, that All men are Created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain rights . Among these the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”. Sound like God less men to you?

    WHY do citizens have such difficulty getting ammo all of a sudden? This has never been a problem before that I can ever remember but for the last year or so it is next to impossible. Where is the law of supply and demand and why does no one seem alarmed about such a situation?
