The real issue is because gun laws vary from state to state, not the company, they are just covering their ass.. eBay won't allow me to sell some 15 round mags, something about California. You're WAYYYYYY over reacting and clearly didn't read the user agreement closely enough.

Seriously, I hope you get every cent that is owed to you, but be realistic, the way gun laws vary from state to state 'Square' is only doing what I'm sure they have to to stay in business. Like you, they don't make laws but they have to follow them. Be mad at the government and the system that allows laws that restrict sales of this nature.

I would go with the postal money order. You can take it to the post office and they can tell if it is fake before you deposit a fake and get the sad news

To be perfectly fair, Square does NOT discriminate against firearms purchases like PayPal does. Square is used by many merchants and gun dealers at the gun shows I attend. Square's issue was the fact that the card user was not physically present and the card swiped. Nothing stops a kid like Adam Lanza from grabbing Mommy's Visa and making a transaction over the Internet, therefore, Square simply wants the card holder present when the transaction is made. For a weapon, this policy seems to be fair to protect Square as well as it's users from liability issues later on. I would at least not include Square way down at the level of PayPal and its' communist ilk.

It also may help to explain to Square that you were sending the weapon to a federally-licensed FFL dealer and that the card holder would be filling out paperwork for a background check which would be run through crime computers and his Identification confirmed, not just simply mailing it to a P.O. Box. Every time someone hears "Internet sale" of a firearm, they assume we are sending it to a dead drop or remailing service and don't care what is on the other end. Obviously, this is another field where we need to diligently re-educate people.

To put this quite bluntly, you broke the rules. Did they arbitrarily change the rules just to get you? No, they didn't. Were the rules available for your inspection before you opened the account? Yes, they were. This is NOT their fault. Like the great majority of us you didn't read the EULA and it bit you in the butt. Show some personal responsibility and place the blame where it really lies. If it was me, I would be writing them a thank you letter for completing the transaction they were under no obligation to perform.

The way I read it is that they changed their policy and appear to be very much anti-gun, not mired in the variance of interstate commerce.
