These are few American principles that the Left hates more than the right to bear arms.
Disarming the American public is the primary objective of many left-wing radicals for a number of reasons.
But law-abiding gun owners are beside themselves after this bank announced the unthinkable.
Gun ownership is under attack in America
There is nothing that Democrats hate more than the Second Amendment and those who exercise those rights.
That is why disarming law-abiding Americans is one of their top public policy priorities.
As of now, an all-out repeal of the Second Amendment seems untenable, but that is not stopping Democrats from restricting gun rights one step at a time.
Unfortunately, many large corporations have an unholy alliance with the radical Left, and will do whatever they demand.
This was evidenced last fall when both Visa and Mastercard made decisions to flag gun purchases made with their credit cards.
But according to the Independent Journal Review, Discover Card is upping the ante after the corporation announced it will begin tracking gun purchases in April.
“Anyone using a Discover card to make a purchase in a gun store will have that purchase tracked, beginning in April,” IJ Review reported.
In response to this bombshell report, Reuters ran an article on the matter that claimed “Discover will allow its network to track purchases at gun retailers come April, making it the first among its peers to publicly give a date for moving ahead with the initiative, which is aimed at helping authorities probe gun-related crimes”
Discover responded to the report by claiming that they “remain focused on continuing to protect and support lawful purchases on our network while protecting the privacy of cardholders.”
This shocking move by Discover Card demonstrates how radical corporate America has become.
Although the company claims that this will somehow not affect law-abiding gun owners, many Second Amendment supporters are rightfully concerned by the implications of this power grab.
As of now, it is not clear if any other major credit card companies will follow suit, but given the proliferation of radical leftist ideals in corporate America, this would be less than surprising.
Gun owners must be weary of any attack on gun rights
At the end of the day, gun owners ought to be extra cautious before using a Discover Card, Visa, or Mastercard for their next gun purchase.
Although Discover claims to use this data for “good,” it is impossible to trust major corporations in 2023.
Likewise, the federal government almost certainly has some level of involvement with this process.
This policy is just one step in the Left’s plan to disarm the law-abiding Americans.
Many left-wing radicals know that an all-out repeal of the Second Amendment is not practical anytime soon, so chipping away at gun rights one step at a time is their mission.
Instead of targeting law-abiding citizens, the Left should focus their energy on supporting law and order if they hope to reduce gun-related crimes.
Once again, punishing law-abiding Americans is not the answer.
