The suggestion that banks and payment networks should monitor or refuse to finance consumer purchases of legal firearms is a suggestion that banks take the law into their own hands.

Such proposals amount to a form of vigilante justice. If, as a society, we have decided that we no longer want to protect the ownership of certain types of weapons, we must work with our duly elected representatives to write and amend laws and decide how to reconcile that with the Constitution.
