They believe in Diversity as long as the result is a bunch of different looking people who all think the same as themselves.
They believe in the 1st Amendment unless you say something they don't like.
They believe in charity but not if it's their own money.
The believe is praising homosexuality unless they don't like you, in which case you are probably just little f****t.*

If they had a contract they should sue their pants off, if not, sever all ties and find another vendor that is like minded. I’d rather NOT spend my money on any liberal products or supporters.
America’s Largest Gun Shop?
Sounds like a vacation destination to me!
nobody really should be purchasing such items or similiar with a check of credit card anyway....save your money...
If they are your processor, FIRE THEM FIRST!!
Why would a gun owner want a card from Authorize.net/CyberSource? Get a VISA card from another bank. The NRA offers credit cards.
The article doesn’t tell the whole story. I googled the authorize.net agreement because I thought it was odd that the gun shop owners didn’t say “but the policy never said we couldn’t sell guns!”
Unless authorize.net just changed their policy (which is possible) it says you can’t use their services for many lawful purchases that the owners of the company presumably don’t like, including pornography, gambling and guns. If this was the same agreement two years ago, the gun shop owners should have found someone else to process their payments.
“You agree that You will not at any time conduct Your business in any manner that directly or indirectly offers, sells, leases, licenses or displays, delivers, advertises, recommends, or promotes any product(s), service(s), data, information, image(s), text and/or any content which”
xiv.is associated with the sale of firearms.”
No one’s right are being violated. It’s their company and they don’t like guns.
Of course, WE can exercise our rights to give them a piece of our minds and to shop elsewhere, and if you follow the link it will show you how to do both:
So, what about the companies that sell bathtubs, buckets, and knives??? Or, even CARS? Whoever made this decision is an idiot.
Visa wasn’t clued in by the name of the shop?
I have an L.L. Bean VISA card, and L.L. Bean sells guns. Obviously not all Banks and retailers using VISA doing so under this one company discussed in the article.
Any boycott should target the bad company, and not all the others.
It is not just authorize.net ... it is Bank of America, Wells Fargo as well. They keep buying up smaller banks and then purging the gun related businesses from their credit card processing services. This is orchestrated and intentional. If you bank at either of those two places... you are supporting this effort. We need to stop doing business with these companies.
