Democrats want to track gun purchases with credit card records

There is legislation in the House. This is basically an official version of "Operation Chokepoint", with authorizing legislation to impose new reporting requirements on credit card companies to detect (and presumably try to prevent) buying guns with credit cards. The theory is that mass shooters spend a lot of money on guns with their credit cards right before the event. This is certainly false in the general sense; all you need is one gun, or a few gallons of gasoline and some wits. This proposal will be absolutely ineffective unless it can stop people from buying just one gun on a credit card -- so inevitably that's how it will eventually be applied.
