Trading with the enemy is illegal in all wars. But, apparently, not in the "War on Guns." Just ask PayPal. Look at any firearms sale board and you'll find vendor after vendor who does business with the enemy and who makes you do business with the enemy too. When Citibank and Bank of America tried this, a GUN OWNER BOYCOTT stopped their discrimination against the LEGAL sale of firearms and accessories. PayPal needs to suffer the same backlash from gun vendors and gun owners. PayPal can be contacted at: No phone number listed on their web site. No address given on their web site. PayPal SEEMS DETERMINED TO LIMIT ACCESS But you can contact them through their web site as follows: To contact our Customer Service Department, login to your PayPal account, return to the Help Center, and select the "Contact Us" link. Or use : service@paypal.com Why do so many in the Firearms Trade insist that their customers deal with this company that HATES firearms but loves liquor and fireworks. The PayPal policy cannot be based on the existence of complex federal, state or local regulations because liquor sales have those nor can it be based on mailing restrictions or possibility of injury because fireworks have those, so it must just be HATRED OF GUNS AND, THEREFORE, OF GUN OWNERS. Why pay money to people who hate you? * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * PayPal Shops > Help & Resource Center > Allowable Goods and Services Guidebook Allowable Goods and Services Guidebook for PayPal Shops * * * Shopkeepers who sell firearms or explosives will be DISQUALIFIED from listing in PayPal Shops. Any item that is designed to propel a metal (or similar) projectile is covered by this policy. Exceptions to this rule include collectible, curio & relic, and antique firearms, as well as archery supplies. http://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=p/shop/guide-outside

Thank you for the information. I just sent an email to them. I hope more folks will do the same, if for no other reason than to feel a bit of pride at getting your message out.

Are there other companies that offer a similar service without any anti-gun policies?
