Proposed Credit Card Gun Purchase Bill Could Evolve into Confiscators’ Dream

Talk about “commonsense gun safety laws” notwithstanding, the “Real Men Don’t Need Guns” sign at the NRA HQ protest says it all about ultimate intent. (Jennifer Wexton/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Wexton bill would use credit card data to track firearms purchases,” The Washington Post reported Friday. “Congressional gridlock on gun legislation led Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-Va.) to seek creative ways to prevent gun violence.”

If by “creative” they mean unhampered by concepts of limited Constitutional government and unalienable rights, they have a point. Then again, we are dealing with totalitarian wannabes, and fresh off a manipulated demographics victory for Democrats, Virginia is undergoing an eye-rolling gun-grabber feeding frenzy.

Wexton says she “wants banks and credit card companies to flag purchases that could signal a person is preparing to carry out a mass shooting.” You know, kind of like the Department of Pre-Crime, but this one will rely on the type of economic fascism the power zealots refer to by the euphemism “public/private partnership.” Those “partners” like Citigroup and Bank of America, who are banking on disarmament, will be glad to help.

And it won’t be just gun purchases that are flagged.

“An effective program,” we are told, “would have to track credit card purchases of guns and ammunition as well as equipment such as body armor and night-vision goggles across multiple retailers. Because why else would anyone NEED such items…? Right?

Naturally, Everytown, that never saw an infringement it didn’t try to ram down gun owners’ throats, is all on board with the idea. And just as naturally, interested flacks like Joseph Moreno, a former federal prosecutor and FBI consultant who is a partner at the financial services law firm Cadwalader, is out there selling this abomination as “moderate middle ground that privacy and Second Amendment advocates should be able to meet in the middle on.”

That’s grabberspeak for anyone who is against it must be an extremist, designed to appeal to the ignorant and to “moderate Republicans.” That means anyone against it can now be smeared as exactly the type of “lone wolf domestic terrorist homegrown violent extremist” Wexton’s bill, H.R. 5132, pretends it can deter.

After all, Moreno assures us, “We’re not talking about banning any kind of purchases or a federal registry.”

Not for now, but let the Democrats secure majorities and Katie bar the door. Meanwhile, here’s what they are really talking about even if they don’t admit it here, understanding that they will happily take increments on the way to getting it all: Such steps would include banning private sales. And imagine what enforcers doing the bidding of citizen disarmament enthusiasts could do with information putting not only targets in their sights, but also guidance on how to word the warrants. And once this jackboot is in the door, imagine how much wider it can be kicked open. Case in point, be careful about using credit cards on state-determined “legal product” purchases.

Meanwhile, the street gangs doing the brunt of the killings in urban Democrat strongholds will continue operating as usual, undeterred.

The good news is this is much ado about nothing—for now. GovTrack and its Skopos Lab prognosis give Wexton’s bill a “1% chance of being enacted.” But that doesn’t mean we can just shrug it off and forget about it.
Being aware and on guard for this, and for all the avenues of attack, gives us a glimpse of the nonstop gun bans, grabs, edicts, orders, rules and rulings we can expect should the violence monopolists take it all in 2020.

IMOA, People should use their credit cards and get cash whenever you buy anything gun related and these buffoons anti-gun control BS would be useless.

Joseph Moreno’s statement is just a backdoor excuse to implement more bad gun control legislation and will lead to tracking guns or components and then confiscation when the time comes. “We’re not talking about banning any kind of purchases or a federal registry.” It wouldn’t be long before additional gun control legislation would require banks to turn over their data to ensure none of those people who purchased gun related components aren’t prohibited persons.

Cash should be used as much as possible. CC companies get their income from the processing fee of the transaction. So every time cash is used it hits them right where we need to hit them.

Sometimes you have to hold your nose and dance with the devil to get what you need though. I recently bought an upper from a company that would only take a card. So I went out and bought a gift card with cash and used that.

I don’t know how every gun store marks the transaction with a debit/credit card, but from past experience I know if you buy a firearm from Walmart the receipt indicates it was a firearm and so would the credit/debit transaction, but my LGS receipt is marked “goods or services” no matter what I buy with my debit card.
Or just take a cash advance on your credit card and go buy your firearms if you’re worried about it.

And I try to only use private sales for my guns too. And all those items are therefore ‘ghosts’ – which is what the commies fear most – a weapon they don’t know about and therefore can’t confiscate.

Probably not her orignial idea, and THAT is the scary part. With outfits like BloomingIdiotBurg’s Mad Mamas and such, these pollitical organisations are putting these diabolical plans into the empty heads of elected “lawmaker” and at times even funding their “creativity”, or, as in the case of nasty gun bills floated in many states (Washington Oregon, Nevada, to name three recent I know of) writing the legislation for them, then letting them trot out their diseased ponies onto the circus midway as their own creations.

Follow the money. Every time, that leads to the gun grabby crowd.

A simple comparison of the rates these psychoactive drugs are prescribed, versus the rate of mass shootings will put the blame exactly where it belongs. At the feet of big pharma. Notice how NO gun rights outfit will say this? Know why? MONEY.

Most of these domestic mass murderers (actually nearly all) were on, or withdrawing from, behavior altering prescription drugs, often from childhood thanks to parents looking for alternatives to parenting. Here is a short list. These are from the companies with real lobbying power: Prozac, Xanax, Ambien, Trazodone, Zoloft, Paxil, Ritalin, Luvox, Effexor, Celexa.

John Noveske published a list of mass murderers and their prescription drugs. He died shortly after in a single car accident in daylight in good weather on a deserted country road. His list on Facebook disappeared almost immediately.

Had this been 1777, many of those folks would be shot already.
Communists and the uneducated cowards are a disease destroying the United States.

Freedom is a good thing. Worth fighting for.

Ironic that just as others admire and wish for our freedoms, the Democrats are in high speed pursuit of socialist communism. The Chinese people want what we have; the American Democrats want what the Chinese communist government leaders have.
