Major Credit Cards: Stop doing business with assault weapons retailers

Tiny coffins in Newtown. Innocent young lives violently ended at Stoneman Douglas, Virginia Tech, Columbine and dozens of other American schools, churches, concerts and nightclubs over the last 19 years. When will we collectively decide that enough is enough?
The Second Amendment is as obsolete in the age of nuclear weapons technology as the Three-Fifths Compromise after the Emancipation Proclamation, but it, combined with the Mafia-style tactics of the National Rifle Association, ensures that cowardly, self-interested Washington politicians will not make meaningful change to existing gun laws. The only hope for change lies with the corporations that enable firearms and ammunition manufacturers to sell weapons of war to unscreened, untrained and, all too often, unhinged people.
We call on the finance industry, including credit card companies Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover, to take a stand and establish new rules for the sale of guns in America.
We ask these companies to change their terms of service to state that they will no longer do business with retailers that sell assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, which make semiautomatic rifles fire faster. This would effectively ban the sale of weapons of war at sporting goods stores across the United States, as these retailers would be cut off from the credit card system.
Please sign this petition today to encourage Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover to take corporate responsibility for their role in assault weapon sales and wield their collective power against the powerful gun lobby today.
