TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – -(AmmoLand.com)-Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement following recent media reports that credit card companies are going to start tracking gun and ammunition sales. The reports state that major credit card companies such as Visa, Mastercard, and American Express have decided to apply a new sales code to distinguish firearm purchases at U.S. gun stores.

Additionally, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled on a Texas bill (NetChoice V. Ken Paxton), establishing that major corporations, including banking institutions, do NOT have a right to limit Americans’ constitutional rights.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “The second amendment is foundational to our American way of life. The idea that law-abiding Americans would be put on some kind of corporate watchlist is disturbing. Our rights come from our Creator, not the government, and especially not big corporations. It is clear that the actions by these credit card companies are part of a larger effort to curtail God-given constitutional rights of Americans. It is also symptomatic of the virus known as ESG [Environmental Social Governance], which is part of a global effort to socially re-engineer the country that we love so much.”

“There is no way we are going to allow that to happen in the free state of Florida.”

“If we come to the legislative session and companies like Visa, Mastercard and American Express are generating these reports to create a chilling effect against the purchase of firearms, then I’ll work with the Legislature to pass a law penalizing businesses who are targeting the right to bear arms. We’ve seen a groundbreaking ruling come out of the Fifth Circuit limiting corporations’ ability to curtail American’s constitutional rights, so we are on solid legal footing to pursue a bill protecting Floridians 2nd Amendment Rights. We can also take it a step further by barring these companies from doing any business with the State of Florida. We will send a message out to these large corporations that if you are interested in doing business with Florida, you need to make sure that you’re protecting Floridians right to arm and defend themselves.”

Shut them down for thier violating people’s rights to privacy and the second amendment. Good bye to all the commie credid card clowns . That’s C.C.C.C. Looks kinda like the China thing . Wonder if the C.C.C.C. commie credid card clowns will understand Americans have rights protected by the constitution ?

Boom

I guess the Republican based credit card company named FREEDOM CREDIT is in order.

Sign me up. Oregonistan

Boom

I wonder if freedom credit is affiliated with freedom mortgage?

musicman44mag

Humm. Good question. Either way, if it does the right thing, that is what counts. Right!!!!

Boom

My house is with freedom mortgage…the mailing address is Boca Raton…

musicman44mag

Isn’t that interesting. Maybe with all this garbage that is going on, Florida might decide to secede from the union and become its own country? It would be easy to draw a border line and separate the two and if all the rich people keep moving there maybe it could become richer than kommiefornia. Maybe that is why Gavin Gruesome is so concerned about what De Santis is doing? Nancy his aunt pukeoski bought a home there. Maybe she sees and knows something we don’t know or maybe I just figured out? LOL

Boom

…not without taking Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, W. Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Arizona, New Mexico will have to be taken by force… Colorado will also (because I want Wyoming), we’ll probably let Iowa join us, too… That’ll be a hell of a battleground state, literally… As will W. Virginia…

This will be a great New Union.

All of them rich socialists from N.Y. or Ca. can stay in southern Fl and become part of CUBA.

I didn’t know that was the section they were moving to. I think that would put them close to Disney World wouldn’t it? They should feel right at home.

I don’t know if it’s a coincidence or what, but yesterday, 9/21/2022, when I tried to purchase ammunition, I was declined by VISA, MC, and AmEx. Today, the purchase was approved.

Boom

I don’t know Jay… Maybe you hadn’t paid your bill(s)?

…or maybe it’s an eagle eye / watch net / Axiom conspiracy…

What were you buying? Some linked 40mm HEDP ? I was buying some TOW/Javelin missiles the other day (RF type/wireless), and the same thing happened…but then I just whipped out my wad and plunked it down on the hood of ole BFV, and I walked aways with my warheads… … too easy ..

could have been overload on their system…or their lawyers finally spoke up , Im waiting for biden to sign student loan forgiveness bs and banks to tell clients pay or wee will sue ..and take all your credit forever

Boom

Well that’s the whole thing, the students are absolved of it, the federal government will be paying it.. so at that point, the federal government is the client not the student.. so, you’re the one paying for it… I guess.

swmft

no congress would have to absolve them, president does not have any rights to purse so it would just create clusterfuck

swmft

wow 2 on hold
lets play beat the system

KICK THEIR ASSES, JIMMY!!!!!

To all my fellow Floridians that reside in the 17th Congressional District. There is an absolute Liberal Loon named Andrea Doria Kale in North Port who is running against Greg Stuebe. She is a transplant from New York!
Please visit her website so you can read her insane policies!

Ope

Maybe Governor Desantis will send her back to NYC with a busload of illegal Mexicans.

boredonsight

cc companies just like 99.9% of all of us

will follow the law

even when we dont like that law

thats why the term sheep is used

its only the few brave who will only be known AT THAT TIME

who are really willing to defend against tyranny

Boom

…or the desperate. Sometimes bravery hasn’t anything to do with it. Sometimes.
