NSSF Takes First Data Corp. To Task

Back on Jan. 10, I told you of the national credit card servicing company that was refusing to process transactions regarding firearms because it did not understand federal firearm laws.

Well, the National Shooting Sports Foundation has now gotten involved.

"Furthermore, the policy of First Data and Citi Merchant Services interferes with the receiving and shipping of inventory from and to federally licensed firearms retailers, distributors and manufacturers. This inventory supplies not only law-abiding Americans, but military and law enforcement agencies as well," the foundation said in a letter to First Data Corporation, which operates Citi Merchant Services.
