Miyares Criticizes New Credit Card Code For Gun Purchases

Virginia Attorney General Jason Miyares joined a group of attorneys general in criticizing a handful of financial institutions for a new policy that would track and monitor firearm purchases. According to the Virginia Mercury the institutions plan to create a merchant category code for gun stores to use when processing credit and debit card transactions. Miyares says when Virginians lawfully purchase firearms with credit cards, it should be no one’s business but their own.
