It's really troubling that a massive bank who took a shit load of taxpayer money in a bailout would try to make a unilateral move like this to undermine our rights. Un fucking believable. Glad I don't have any business with them.

I mean, can banks force companies to not provide pens, paper, computers, bibles, korans, or any other constitutionally protected product to consumers. It is the same as Citigroup preventing booksellers from selling religious books to those under 21 or if the book has over 100 pages. I don't understand these companies motivations. They have a responsibility to provide as much value to the share holders as possible yet they're alienating large segments of the population over stupid political moralizing! There are 5 million NRA members alone! What if Citigroup decided to remove their payment processing services from abortion clinics? FUCK. I hope they lay down and die but we all know that they're "To big to fail". FUCK

Companies that took taxpayer money should have a moral obligation to remain politically neutral. If they can take money from all of us, they should also serve all of us.

The Constitution prevents the government from infringing on your rights, it does nothing about private entities. Where things get hazy is places with government contracts or who take government money in some way, they may be directly limited by the Constitution as representatives of the government depending on the situation.

That's why the government legislated "protected classes", in order to prevent companies from discriminating against people and violating some of their civil rights.
This sort of interference in things has been going on for years, it's why all of this shit is restricted or banned on ebay:

So, and I mean this unironically, the Jews are now actually behind gun control?

I wouldn't say the Jews are behind gun control. I will say that a Jew is behind gun control: Michael Bloomberg. He has been bankrolling most of the movement out of his own pocket for a decade or so.

So are they limiting what you buy with your own money? How is that legal?

[–] ShittlaryClinton 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

They are limiting the merchants on what they can sell you. Technically it is since businesses aren't protected by the same rights people are. Fuck them.

I would argue that it's closer to bullying their vendors. But yeah, it's legal. Luckily the free market can fix the problem by denying business to Citigroup, cancelling cards ETC. We can find a bank that's willing to do business with us.

Because they're private companies, and the United States has already determined the regulating companies is bad. Therefor, they're mostly not regulated.

YEP, its fucking true. I just transferred my balance to another credit card company since I didn't plan on paying off my balance this month. I called and spoke with a supervisor who answered my question and she even admitted to me that shes a 6th generation hunter and seemed a bit saddened about her company's decision, even though she probably couldn't openly discuss it with me. I told her that I transferred the balance while I was on the phone with her and planned on keeping the card open with a $0 - $10 balance and that was it ( from my understanding this actually hurts the company as opposed to just closing the account). She actually noted why I intend to not use the card and said it will come in handy for them tracking cancellations as well as people who intend to transfer their balances and not use the cards anymore.

Fuck Citi. Also, please be respectful when calling. Keep in mind some of their employees are people just like us, and may be just as frustrated. Try not to bait them into agreeing with you, they could lose their jobs over it.

I just cancelled my card. It appears they are getting a number of cancellations from this. The retention specialist tried to say it wouldn't affect me, only corporate partners who sell to under 21 year olds and "high capacity" magazines. They don't seem to view this as an infringement on rights. Fuck em, I spent $2k a month on that card and I would be glad to take it elsewhere. I did just get back $70 on a Rugged Surge price rewind though.

Yup. They don't get to claim lack of knowledge like most gun-grabbers do.

They always preface their comment with "as someone who owns guns and has been hunting since I was an embryo, no one needs one of them 'aye ares'".

This sort of thing needs as much exposure as possible. I agree that the subverse should be primarily gun deals, but we need as many pro 2A individuals informed about shenanigans that are aloft trying to undermine the constitution and the citizens of America.
