Since the Parkland School shooting, 24 companies have cut ties with the NRA. Payment processors like PayPal and Apple Pay have already banned the purchase of firearms for people using their services. "The Republican Congress is once again failing to act to limit access to these weapons, but Visa, MasterCard, and other financial services companies have the power to act where Congress won't. They have a responsibility to respond to the tens of thousands of people who are demanding concrete action to limit gun violence," said Eddie Kurtz, Executive Director of Courage Campaign.

Join the Raging Grannies, Daily Kos, Ultraviolet, and the Courage Campaign to demand that Visa block the sales of assault weapons from customers using their credit card. Chant, sing out, and deliver a petition with 150,000 signatures to the powers-that-be at Visa Headquarters in Foster City, CA. on March 8 at 11am.
900 Metro Center Blvd, Foster City.
