First, Big Finance tried to shut down the firearms industry in the 1990s when Bank of America, among others, decided that they would no longer provide financial services to federally-licensed unregulated firearms dealers and manufacturers —

Then in 2013, Barack Obama decided to make this sort of thing official federal policy with Operation Choke Point.

Trump, to his credit, shut down Operation Choke Point in 2017.

Now the Silicon Valley victim disarmers are getting into the game. Recently, Salesforce head Marc Benioff decided to have his company join the act by cutting off his company’s services to firearms dealers and manufacturers.

Here’s the boilerplate legalese that comprises Salesforce’s terms of service —

The last paragraph of Section 6, Prohibited Actions (on page 3), is where Salesforce puts Benioff’s victim disarmament fetish into Salesforce’s terms of service —

Worldwide, customers may not use a Service to transact online sales of any of the following firearms and/or related accessories to private citizens. Firearms: automatic firearms; semi-automatic firearms that have the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any of the following: thumbhole stock, folding or telescoping stock, grenade launcher or flare launcher, flash or sound suppressor, forward pistol grip, pistol grip (in the case of a rifle) or second pistol grip (in the case of a pistol), barrel shroud; semi-automatic firearms with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds; ghost guns; 3D printed guns; firearms without serial numbers; .50 BMG rifles; firearms that use .50 BMG ammunition. Firearm Parts: magazines capable of accepting more than 10 rounds; flash or sound suppressors; multi-burst trigger devices; grenade or rocket launchers; 80% or unfinished lower receivers; blueprints for ghost guns; blueprints for 3D printed guns; barrel shrouds; thumbhole stocks; threaded barrels capable of accepting a flash suppressor or sound suppressor.

Still, there ARE alternatives to Salesforce (H/T the Jews Can Shoot FB page) —
