Quote:
Six gun companies have announced plans to stop selling any of their products to any government agency in states that severely limit the rights of private gun ownership.

Disappointed with New York State lawmakers and other jurisdictions around the country who have passed strict gun control legislation, the companies—composed of firearm manufacturers, gunsmiths, and sporting goods retailers—have announced these policies in the past week.

Their various statements emphasize that such laws create a class of government employees with rights and and a class of citizens without rights. Thus, they refuse to aid the enforcement of such inequality.

The announcements read:


Quote:
LaRue Tactical

Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.


Quote:
Olympic Arms

Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity - will no longer be served as customers.

In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York - henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.


Quote:
Extreme Firepower Inc, LLC

The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms. Law-enforcement agencies are typically exempt from these restrictions. EFI, LLC does not recognize law-enforcement exemptions to local, state, and federal gun control laws. If a product that we manufacture is not legal for a private citizen to own in a jurisdiction, we will not sell that product to a law-enforcement agency in that jurisdiction.


Quote:
Templar Custom

We will not sell arms to agents of the state of New York that hold themselves to be "more equal" than their citizens.

As long as the legislators of New York think they have the power to limit the rights of their citizens, in defiance of the Constitution, we at Templar will not sell them firearms to enforce their edicts.

Templar Custom is announcing that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee will no longer be served as customers.


Quote:
York Arms

Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York. We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York. As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.


Quote:
Cheaper than Dirt

Recently, companies such as LaRue Tactical and Olympic Arms have announced that they will no longer sell prohibited items to government agencies and personnel in states that deny the right to own those items to civilians. It has been and will continue to be Cheaper Than Dirt’s policy to not to sell prohibited items to government agencies and/or agents in states, counties, cities, and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their citizens. We support and encourage other companies that share in this policy.


Quote:
Second Amendment activist groups Guns Save Life and Grass Roots North Carolina are currently urging big gun manufacturers Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson, and Glock to halt their sales to government agencies within states that have clamped down on their residents' right to bear arms.

@gungasnake,
so these companies are against constituted police forces and are in favor of anarchy? Sounds like a really dumb business plan but I suppose only time will tell.

@gungasnake,
Cheaper Than Dirt... aren't they the company that posted this on their facebook page Dec 12?

Quote:
“Cheaper Than Dirt! is suspending online sales of firearms effective immediately. We are reviewing our policy internally, and will continue to be the leader in the outdoor industry with our full line of gear and accessories.”


So after suspending all firearm sales they are going to suspend firearm sales to NY police? I wonder how that will work.

@gungasnake,
That's six companies out of --- how many? Representing --- what percentage of guns that state governments purchase each year? Somehow I don't think state governments will run out of suppliers any time soon.

@gungasnake,


I think this is a good start, but more must be done to shed the bright light of
truth on what's driving the disarmament of law abiding American citizens.

@H2O MAN,
I dont think "market forces" will prevail. What the hell, if NY state needs em they can buy through the military which sets the contracts for so many of these "Arms manufacturers".

It SHOULD in fact make you feel safer. Cops invariably arrive on the scene a half hour to two or three hours AFTER a crime has been committed i.e. afer you've been raped, robbed, or killed. A friend, relative, or even a neighbor with a pistol would be substantially more protection than that.

I don't think that's legal, buying weapons from the military.

@farmerman,
Why would you want the police in a non-free state to buy military weapons?

@H2O MAN,
I was trained by the best and am quite proficient. Thats just you attempting to be insulting again.
Still, why do you guys wish to disarm the police?

I think the point that the firearms dudes wish to make will backfire on them by the large number of gun-owners who are NOT idiot zealots like you , Dave, gunga and oralboy.

Another smart move:
