The popular mobile payment company, Square, Inc., has recently changed their terms of use and will no longer allow the use of their product for firearm sales, ammunition, firearm parts, and any other associated materials which they say are “designed to cause physical injury”.

Sportsmen and other gun owners are being urged to contact Square to voice their disapproval and to urge them to change their anti-gun policy.

Square, a small credit card swiping device that plugs into IPhones, Android and IPad’s for easy credit or debit card transactions, changed their terms of use in late spring, adding the amendment as #23 to their Prohibited Goods and Service list. A Square spokesman denied the accusation that the change was related to the gun debate sparked by the Sandy Hook shooting.

As a non-profit organization that fights for the rights of hunting, fishing and trapping across the U.S., the USSA fully supports the use and sales of firearms.  USSA has in the past used the Square device for company events but has since halted its use in the wake of the change to their “Prohibited Goods and Service list”.

Take Action!  All sportsmen and other gun owners are urged to contact Square CEO Jack Dorsey and explain how his company’s anti-gun stance is misguided.  Tell him that over 90 million gun owners – many of which are either his customers or potential customers – support the right to keep and bear arms.
