Visa urged to to sever links with National Rifle Association

Visa is facing calls to scrap an array of credit cards it is offering to members of the National Rifle Association.

The role of the NRA in resisting moves to curb gun ownership and impose stricter checks has come under greater scrutiny following a recent series of shooting sprees, in several cases on college campuses.

Earlier this month President Barack Obama repeated his calls for tighter gun laws in the wake of the 74th school shooting in the 18 months since the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in Connecticut.

Thousands of campaigners have already signed a petition calling for Visa to end its association with the lobby group.

1. Another opportunity for gun control groups to demonstrate their impotence

I am sure Visa is shaking in their shoes.

2. What makes you think Visa is going to pay anything more than passing attention

 

to a worthless online petition?
Visa will do what's best for it's bottom line and that doesn't include dropping NRA themed Visa cards.
All this will do is show the continuing impotence of gun control groups.

3. Talk about living in a fantasy world!

 

I'm sure an online petition, signed by a few thousand (and I'm being very generous with that number) malcontents, too cheap to join gun control organizations with dues, will make them immediately drop their profitable cards offered to 5 million NRA members.

Then are you going after the NRA Mastercards too?

Why would any business bother listening to you?
