eBay/PayPal can bite me.
Let's see what convenient rationales are invented.Originally Posted by PayPal
"Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties."
"Some time ago, a bunch of lefties defied the law by dancing at the Jefferson Memorial, resulting in their arrests. Last week, a bunch of them pulled the same stunt and - using patented Lefist techniques - provoked the Park Police into having to use force to arrest them."
That is why I will not use PayPal.
Their policy may be due to some goofy liability issue.

They are lying.
eBay, their owner, is also anti gun.
I bought a Beretta with a credit card. I buy ammo, magazines, and a holster with one. How come a credit card company has no liability issues? Some of them are MUCH bigger than PayPal and would have deeper pockets.
It really doesn't matter if the liability excuse is true or not. The fact remains, they'll cancel your account or otherwise screw with you if you buy gun stuff. That's anti-gun, regardless if the reasons they and their defenders claim are true actually are (they are not).
There are a lot of reasons not to use PayPal. Being anti-gun is just one of them.

I do find it ironic and more than a little satisfying though that we are donating (presumably fee-free) using Paypal for pro-2A causes.

how would paypal even know if you are buying gun stuff??? i use my paypal debit card to purchase ammo, targets, magazines, etc.. and have never had an issue. i can't quote right now when or where i may have purchased something, but whether it's at walmart, or cabelas, they don't actually know what you are buying.
i guess i also never cared, because until i read this, i didn't even know they had such a policy.
