Default PayPal Does Not Support Our Hobby. Why Do We Use Them?

I don't know if the Parker Association Membership Board is aware of the fact that PayPal does not support our primary hobby and specifically prohibits the use of PayPal for transactions involving firearms, and related items. If we are aware of this policy by PayPal, I am curious as to why we would provide them their fees on each membership renewal? That cannot be an inconsequential payment to Paypal for something that they are opposed to as stated in their policy statement. It also seems counter intuitive to a great organization that's primary mission is to promote ownership and knowledge about Parker Guns. Below is the policy information directly from PayPal's site.

Prohibited Activities
You may not use the PayPal service for activities that:

violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.
relate to transactions involving
(j) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories,
As a result I will only pay my membership dues via a check so that I am not giving money to an organization that specifically states that they do not support gun ownership.
