This doesn’t make sense to me:
Discover Financial Services, a provider of credit cards, told Reuters it will allow its network to track purchases at gun retailers come April, making it the first among its peers to move ahead with the initiative aimed at helping authorities probe gun-related crimes.
“We remain focused on continuing to protect and support lawful purchases on our network while protecting the privacy of cardholders,” Discover said in its statement to Reuters.
How can they track purchases while protecting cardholders? My primary hypothesis is they are counting on gun owners to believe a lie.
Pay cash when you can and use Virtual Cards when you can’t.
