In Case You Didn’t Know that Paypal is Anti-gun

Kevin sets up a raffle for a Para 1911 to benefit Project Valor IT.

Soldier’s Angels agrees to handle the processing.

And PayPal promptly shuts ALL of their fundraising efforts until they pull the gun raffle.

Absolutely ridiculous. They are free to run their business any way they want, but to shut down all of an organizations fundraising for more than 12 hours until the offending raffle is taken down is too heavy handed for my taste.

There are already plenty of reasons not to use PayPal, but this finalizes it for me.

    We’ve managed to bypass PayPal! Another sponsor of the Rendezvous, LuckyGunner.com, an ammo site, is doing the on-line ticket sales for us with all proceeds (minus the 3% credit card fee) going to Soldiers’ Angels. Soldiers’ Angels is still taking phone orders for those who don’t want to purchase on-line. Details here.

    And thanks again for linking!
