PayPal Is Anti?

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.

  2. I wonder what would happen if a corportation like Cabela’s or MidwayUSA decided to start using PayPal for their online transactions…

  3. We’ve managed to bypass PayPal! Another sponsor of the Rendezvous, LuckyGunner.com, an ammo site, is doing the on-line ticket sales for us with all proceeds (minus the 3% credit card fee) going to Soldiers’ Angels. Soldiers’ Angels is still taking phone orders for those who don’t want to purchase on-line. Details here.

    And thanks again for linking!
