Discover Card to Track Gun Purchases — USA Social Credit System Emerging

Beginning in April 2023, Discover will become the first credit card issuer to track gun purchases made by their cardholders.

On September 11, 2022, Breitbart News noted that Visa caved to pressure from gun control groups and New York Democrats, agreeing to flag gun and ammo purchases via a new sales categorization. The Associated Press observed that Mastercard and other major credit cards also agreed to flag gun sales.

On March 2, 2023, the Independent Journal Review (IJR) reported that Discover will be first among credit card companies to track gun sales, inasmuch as the company will begin doing so in April.

IJR explained, “Anyone using a Discover card to make a purchase in a gun store will have that purchase tracked, beginning in April.”

There are over 55 million Discover cards in usage, so a lot of information on gun purchases can be gathered via that one company.

Reuters pointed out Discover Financial Services was ahead of Visa and Mastercard in February 2023, noting that Discover would “allow its network to track purchases at gun retailers come April, making it the first among its peers to publicly give a date for moving ahead with the initiative, which is aimed at helping authorities probe gun-related crimes.”

Discover told Reuters, “We remain focused on continuing to protect and support lawful purchases on our network while protecting the privacy of cardholders.”

The code for tracking gun purchases was approved by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in September 2022, and an ISO representative indicated, “The decision to use the new merchant category code is eventually left up to the users in the industry.”

    this should have already been stopped as a violation of the 2nd and setting up a tracking registry. Where is SCOTUS on this?… Also just use cash as much as possible in all location s even it it takes you longer in line!

    THAT’S NOT YOUR JOB TO HELP AUTHORITY PROBE GUN-RELATED CRIMES. FUC YOU DISCOVER
    GO WOKE GO BROKE.
    CANCELING MY CARD. NOT MY MONEY.
    TIME TO SUE BE THESE EVILDOERS.
    CASH WORKS
    BYE-BYE DIS COVER

    To all those canceling their cards, that will damage your credit rating for no real purpose. Better to just keep the card (no annual fee) and just don’t use it. If they notify you that non-use will result in them closing your account, make a small purchase and pay it off, then wait until the next similar letter 1-2 years later, then repeat.

    And, by the way, by the end of the year ALL cards will be reporting. Buy with cash!

  • Michael says:

    And you can be sure any gun you buy with a credit card will be reported to some government agency for their records and back door registration . Some agency like maybe the atf, fbi and others .
