Are you a suspicious purchaser?

New York Times Gun Owner Discrimination Harassment

New York Times Gun Owner Discrimination Harassment

Ft Collins, CO – -(Ammoland.com)- The new “Avarnas.”

The movement, propagated by amoral leftists/Marxists, to marginalize American gun owners continues to recruit the finance industry aggressively.

Their apparent goal is to stigmatize gun owners, so that we occupy the lowest possible status-rung in American society, in much the same way as do “avarnas/dalits” (untouchables) in modern-day India.

In a recent NYT editorial, the author implores the banking and credit-card industries to treat all who would legally purchase guns, ammunition, and virtually all accessories like diseased outcasts.

Accordingly, leftists want all “suspicious” firearms transactions “flagged,” not by BATF, but by banks and credit-card companies, so that names of persons thus identified will, without their knowledge, go on a “List.” They want the finance industry to start “ informing ” on gun owners.

What makes a gun-purchaser “suspicious?”

Of course, to leftists, all private gun purchasers are “suspicious,” and all would-be gun owners thus need to be “investigated,” and their names put on the “List” mentioned above.

They want to make the entire finance industry so frightened to have anything to do with us, that eventually all private gun owners will be unable to transact business, followed by retailers, and manufacturers.

In NYS, several state-level politicians (all Democrats, of course) are proposing that a person’s social-media record be “inspected” before he can purchase a gun or ammunition. When asked what in a person’s social media would represent a “red flag,” they are unable to answer.

They want to have the ability to arbitrarily prevent political opponents from buying guns, while they themselves are never required to articulate any legitimate rationale persuasively.

NY’s governor has already stated publically that non-liberals are unwelcome in his state. Presumably, that includes gun owners.

After the first of the year, we’ll see this movement accelerate, to the cheers and unconditional support of the liberal media. As always, our side will find it nearly impossible to find a microphone. Big retailers will continue to be put under enormous pressure to stop selling guns and ammunition.

Dick’s and some others have already caved. Dick’s, for one, is paying a terrible price in lost business as a result. I’m fresh out of sympathy!

“Common-sense” restrictions on our liberty, particularly when leftists dishonestly insist that they only want to ban “certain types” of guns, (from us, never themselves), will, without delay, morph into a ban on all guns, as it has in the UK.

Please don’t insult my intelligence by arguing otherwise.

When Marxists (masquerading as “liberals”) can’t “legislate” our freedom away, they will try to “regulate” it away, or as noted above, “intimidate” it away.

“In my study of Communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of Communist propaganda is not to persuade, nor convince, nor even inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponds to reality, the better.

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or worse, when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all, their sense of personal dignity and decency.

One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, eventually destroyed.

A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.

I think when you examine ‘political correctness,’ it has the same effect, and is intended to!” ~ Theodore Dalrymple

It is also necessary that these formally proud citizens of our Republic, now pitiable emasculated liars, be first forcibly disarmed!

“A society of emasculated liars is easy to control”. What a telling insight of the Bloombergians, Sandersites and so on because firearms in the hands of freemen are not to be deceived or “herded” like cattle.

This is a typical liberal tactic. They know that credit card monitoring will never stop criminal activity. They are simply exploiting a tragedy to punish the gun industry, intimidate gun owners, and restrict access to lawful commerce.


#4

I wonder how fast they’d back down if everyone that owns gun were to suddenly decide to take all their money out of the bank? All on the same day.

$$$$ is all they will understand. Government of the money -by the money-for the money. Add in corporate greed.
Like the Dicks.
We boycott everything from libsuk states to libsuk companies.
Great credit rating gives us the ability to tell any bank “GFY” and we do!

The Obama administration tried this by using regulations to intimidate banks that were used by licensed dealers, pressuring the banks to quit doing business with those companies. If a dealer loses the ability to process credit card transactions, they lose business.

Now that Obama is no longer in the White House, they are trying a different approach.
