Operation Choke Point: Wells Fargo Won’t Do Business With Online KNIFE Sellers. Denying access to on line payments!
Just another example.

A major knives manufacturer from central California says his company was denied access to an internet payment processing service because they sell weapons online, raising questions about whether an anti-fraud program called Operation Choke Point is continuing to block legal businesses in the firearms and weapons industries from accessing basic banking services.

“It was pretty simple and straightforward,” Aaron Hogue, co-owner of Hogue Inc., said of the situation he faced with Wells Fargo bank. “They called my controller, and said, ‘Sorry, but we’re not going to be able to process any credit card transactions for the sale of weapons online.’”

“And they specifically said because you guys sell knives,” he added.

Hogue Inc. is a family-run business that sells knives, tactical gear, and firearms accessories online. The company was founded in 1968 by Hogue’s father, and has since grown to 275 employees. Although Hogue Inc. is involved in the firearms industry, it doesn’t sell any guns.

 Quoting: 914


It starts with one or two companys, in this case Hogue Inc. If you read the article it states they were told because they sell weapons (knifes). My guess is if that's ALL they sold they might be OK for a time. But, they also sell grips, stocks etc. Hogue has been around since 1968.
