The Georgia United Credit Union in Atlanta, Georgia, has modified its account holder user agreement and decided that its members can no longer purchase firearms with their money! That’s right, the user agreement has been updated to exclude the purchase of a legal product.

But wait, there’s more! Not only are firearms and accessories listed, but the user agreement also includes:

“(1) tobacco products; (2) prescription drugs and devices; (3) narcotics, steroids, controlled substances, or other products that present a risk to consumer safety; (4) drug paraphernalia;… (7) goods or services that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity; (8) goods or services that are sexually oriented; (9) goods or services that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime; (10) goods or services that defame, abuse, harass or threaten others; (11) goods or services that include any language or images that are bigoted, hateful, racially offensive, vulgar, obscene, indecent or discourteous; (12) goods or services that advertise or sell to, or solicit others; or (13) goods or services that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction.”

A check of the Georgia United website lists CEO Debbie Smith and the credit union’s view on DEI.

“Through the leadership of CEO Debbie Smith, Georgia United is committed to cultivating a people-first culture dedicated to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.”

The folks at Georgia United CU are keen on controlling people by denying them access to their money. I’ll bet they are big fans of Central Bank Digital Currencies, designed to punish people exhibiting “wrong think” by denying them all types of services.

While Georgia United Credit Union may have the right to deny purchases, they might want to review the policy as Georgia is a pro-2A, red state. Georgians may resent the policy and start a boycott of the credit union, and they would go the way of Bud Light, woke and broke.

You may want to take a look at the user agreement at your financial institution and see what they “allow” you to purchase with your money.

That’s all for now, folks! Please keep sending in your questions, tips, and article ideas. And as always – “Let’s Be Careful Out There.”
