The Democrats demanded that credit card companies track sales of specific types of weapons and ammunition because they despise the Constitution, particularly the right to defend yourself found in the Second Amendment. The Democrats want to do this to create a gun registry, and we saw how well that turned out for the people of the Weimar Republic once the Nazis were elected to power and immediately used the registry to disarm them.
When the credit card corporations refused to bend to the pressure, Democrats in the Senate started pleading with the Department of Justice to take action, and why wouldn’t they? For years, authoritarian Democrats have used government authority to force their will against perceived political threats.CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR NEWSLETTER
So, the Democrats want the DOJ to attack your constitutional right to protect yourself.
According to Breitbart News:
Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) urged the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of the Treasury (Treasury) to take quick action to implement financial tracking of gun and ammunition purchases in the wake of announcements from Visa, Mastercard, and Discover that they would not be tracking purchases of guns and ammunition.
On September 11, 2022, Breitbart News pointed out that Visa caved to pressure from gun control groups and New York Democrats, agreeing to flag gun and ammo purchases via a new merchant category (MCC) code. The Associated Press observed that Mastercard and other major credit card companies also agreed to flag gun sales.
On March 2, 2023, Breitbart News noted that Discover was slated to begin tracking gun and ammunition purchases with the new MCC code in April 2023. This news created a feeling of momentum for the left countered by a wave of pushback among conservatives.
On March 9, 2023, Breitbart News reported that Visa and Mastercard pivoted amidst the pushback and that the two credit card giants announced they would not begin tracking gun and ammunition purchases anytime soon.
On March 10, 2023, Money.com indicated Discover was hitting the brakes as well, and would not begin tracking gun purchases in April as planned.
The Democrats are constantly trying to disarm American citizens, leaving them vulnerable to criminals who want to harm them and a tyrannical government that wants to enslave them.
The worse crime gets thanks to idiotic Democrat policies, the more they want to take away the people’s right to keep and bear arms so that they can defend themselves and their loved ones.
The Democrats exclusively defunded the police and lowered or completely reduced bail laws that enable violent criminals to get back on the streets instead of keeping them locked up and society safe.
