I read here in another post that Pay Pal was antigun. I checked it out for myself and discovered it is true. I immediately closed my account letting them know the reasons why.

I've heard that same story.  However, there is a Dealer that sells Cocobolo grips and he uses Paypal for his transactions.  I'm sure Paypal knows what grips are used on.  I can relate to what you are saying, but just stop and think about it for a second..... If you (or all of us) decided to stop using a service provided by someone who is anti gun imagine how many things we would do without. And even more interesting, imagine all the products that you use who's CEO's are anti gun but you just don't know it.  See what I mean?  Reminds me of a story that went around years ago about Proctor and Gamble.  Rumors had it that they were devil worshippors or something like that.  But, if you feel better about shit canning Paypal then more power to you!

How are they anti gun?  If its not wanting to deal with the possible legaliteis of firearms transfers I understand their position but if they are donating money to anti gun groups I will dump them too.

I've used PayPal in my dealings with CMMG and several other gun parts companies. Never had a problem. How are they anti gun?

If they're anti-gun it's for legal reasons; not political correctness. From reading the rest of the prohibited items list, it sounds more like they're concerned about the Feds and law suits.
If you want to blame anyone, blame the lawyers.

Frankie is correct. If I had a nickle for everytime I've seen a gunner decide to boycott a company or product because it's owners or producers are anti-gun:

a) I'd be rich.
b) There would be a lot of people stuck watching only Steven Baldwin movies.

I've used PayPal to pay for gun related items and parts from auctions, individuals and manufacturers. What's the big deal. I never heard they had any political clout?
