I saw this on my wife’s blog today. I knew that eBay was restrictive about what gun-related stuff can be bought and sold, but I just figured that was for the purpose of international compliance and simplicity. But, no! Via Snowflakes, I wandered to PayPal’s own “Acceptable Use” policy which states:
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:… …(2h) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories
This is of course balled in with drug usage and sexually explicit materials. As though gun and ammunition purchasing is on par with hiring a hooker or doing meth. Nice. I’m going to make it a point to avoid PayPal from here on out. There are alternatives, afterall. I’ve successfully boycotted Wal-Mart for years now. Principals are worth something, even if some of the giants don’t believe it.
