    Is Paypal not allowing firearms purchasing because they are antigun or because the don't want any online fraud that may lead to illegal firearms sales? If you can find a company policy stating they are antigun then I am in, otherwise I am out. I like paypal

    2A aside. PayPal has a horrendous track record. One of the major complaints being that they will hold customers money for 6 months for nothing other than "it seems suspicious."

    They've been sued multiple times. I avoid them. Though of someone else trusts them enough to hold their money I don't mind paying the person through the service...
    "The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism." - George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796

    I don't give them any money to hold, just use my credit card through their service to buy things. The credit card is limited to how much can be charged too.
