Senators demand credit card companies to stop tracking gun store sales

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Senate Republicans are urging major credit card companies to reverse the decision to categorize gun shop purchases separately.

Sen. Roger Marshall, Kansas, is leading a group of 12 GOP senators in demanding that the CEOs of Visa, Mastercard and American Express scrap plans to track gun store sales. The companies recently announced they would apply the International Organization for Standardization’s new merchant category code to gun shop sales. Transactions at firearm stores were previously labeled as “general merchandise.”

In a letter obtained exclusively by FOX Business, the Republican lawmakers argue that compliance with the merchant code could open a backdoor gun control registry impacting law-abiding firearm owners.
