Square bans Gun Sale Transactions

BanSquareIt is being reported by Breitbart that:

…vendors using the Square Account mobile phone application, which processes credit and debit card transactions, received an updated user agreement dated May 9th, 2013. In this agreement, Part One, Section 6, states “By creating a Square Account, you also confirm that you will not accept payments in connection with the following businesses or business activities: [this section has been modified to add item number] “(23) sales of (i) firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition; or (ii) weapons and other devices designed to cause physical injury.”

Square is a privately owned business and it is our hope that if you support the Second Amendment you will vote with your wallet.  We as conservatives believe that the free market should settle issues like this.  Contrast that with this story out of Washington state where a florist is being sued for refusing to provide flowers for a same-sex marriage ceremony.

It seems odd that a company that is refusing to handle transactions for a Constitutionally protected right to bear arms gets a pass from Federal and State authorities, while a Christian business owner, who has a moral objection same-sex marriage is being sued.  I guess it’s all just part of that upside down world we’ve been living in…
