Credit card purchases of guns are now trackable

UPSC Practice recommends Credit card purchases of guns are now trackable.

So, guns bought through credit cards will now be trackable and ‘suspicious purchases’ be brought to the notice of law authorities. Many favouring ‘gun control’ (sic) in the US, a country along with others like Afghanistan, where many states allow over-the-counter purchases of guns without much hassle, have welcomed this ‘check and balance’. Our reaction: people can buy guns using their credit cards there?! Cultural relativism, it seems, flows from the barrel of a gun.
