    Just got this alert last night. I will SO be sending the letter and calling today...

    Grass Roots North Carolina - GRNC Alert 9-24-13 AUTHORIZE .NET "DE-AUTHORIZES" GUN SELLERS

    Here are the logos to look for:

    secure90x72. authorizenet. cybersource_logo.

    I hope that Amazon doesn't use them but if they do...oh well.

    AMAZON is big enough to do their own CC Processing, In-House, and keep the fees for themselves....

    Guess I will have to jack up their price for electrical services we perform in their office. Wonder what the weanies would think of their vendors carrying weapons on premise, as I have done many a time....biglaff

    Nice YD, thanks for the additional link. I'm glad to see it making news outside of NC.

    I wonder if Visa will stop folks from using their card to purchase ammo and firearms?...

    1000 rounds of .223 - $600
    1000 rounds of .45 - $400
    1000 rounds of 9mm - $300
    ...
    Being able to pay for it with CASH (screw credit cards)...PRICELESS!

    ...

    *Editorial note*
    Yes, I know that many debit cards are still either VISA or MasterCard and that when buying online they want something other than paper FRNS...

    "...for everything else there's VISA MasterCard."

    False advertising? I smell class action! Open to every prospective gun buyer that planned on buying a gun with their VISA card. I know I was planning on it...someday. ;) We could settle out of court for say 1000 rounds of .308 or 5.56 each? [js]

    Scratch that...that's MasterCards slogan! Will just have to wait 'till they jump on the bandwagon I guess. Oops! DarkLight had the VISA slogan right.

    Sent off an eMail to VISA, stating that I would be CANCELING, or Transferring ALL my VISA Accounts to MasterCard Accounts, and EXACTLY WHY, I have taken this action. I got a Reply from them, AFTER they checked the Included Account Numbers and amount of Business done, with them, that they were "Sorry to lose my business" but that this was NOT a VISA Policy, but one of their FrontEnd Processors, and they list a bunch of their other FrontEnd Processors that still do business with the Firearms Industry. I Replied, that after 5 Decades with them, I had "No Interest in ANY further Business Dealings with an Outfit, such as they have demonstrated themselves to be." We will see what they come back with, after that Reply. ..... YMMV....

    Not only that, but they flat LIED to you.
    From Wikipedia (verifying other sources now):
    VISA owns Authorize.net via CyberSource.
