Visa CEO: Unlike PayPal and Square, we won’t block gun purchases unless it becomes illegal

Visa will continue to facilitate gun purchases as long as it is legal for people to buy guns, the chief executive of the credit card giant told CNBC on Wednesday.

“We are guided by the federal laws in a country, and our job is to create and to facilitate fair and secure commerce,” said Visa Chairman and CEO Alfred Kelly, the latest corporate leader to address the issue of gun control after the deadly weekend mass shootings in Texas and Ohio.

“We shouldn’t tell people they can’t purchase a 32-ounce soda. We shouldn’t tell people they can’t buy reproductive drugs,” Kelly said.
