I don't think so. These companies benefit from America's free-market system. Its respect for private property and the rule of law.
But they hate America's founding document, the Declaration of Independence. And they despise America's highest law, the Constitution.
How else to explain their animosity for the Bill of Rights and, most of all, the Second Amendment? Are they simply currying favor with the current administration? Are they fans of authoritarianism? Or are they just dimwits?
The usual suspects in this melee are two auto insurers, Geico and Progressive.
You can now add to the list -- at least based upon this news report -- Intuit, makers of Quicken and related offerings.
A Williamson County gun dealer recently learned a credit card processing company no longer wants to do business with him... McMillan is a has a federal firearms license and is heavily regulated by both the state and federal governments.
"They either reviewed several accounts, or it was a company wide policy, because I wasn't the only federal firearms license dealer that got pushed out the other day," McMillan said.
In the email the company wrote "Intuit does not support the services you are providing" and then the reason stated was firearms, ammunition, gun parts and accessories sales not sold in a face-to-face environment with the credit card being swiped.
McMillan does not know the exact reason behind the policy change, but speculated the nationwide gun debate may be behind the move.
...NewsChannel 5 tried contacted Intuit to get a comment about the company's email to McMillan. No one from Intuit returned messages.
Of course not. It will take each of us, expressing our disgust with their actions, to reform these kinds of companies.
