You said
“innocent people being unable to defend themselves from criminals is another issue. let’s deal with that.”

If microstamping adds too much to the price of firearms, then more citizens will not be able to afford to buy them. This would then cause firearm manufacturers to lose sales, and if enacted nationally, many of them could go out of business.

Stopping firearm sales to government entities in New York would put pressure on them to rescind the microstamping law (if it is enacted).

It’s a very dangerous time, when ‘rat overconfidence and total political control could lead them to make a very bad miscalculation.

They can pass all the laws the want, but at some point, hell will break loose.

We’ve got to fight this with every ounce of strength we can muster. That and dollars in the right places, NRA, GOA, SAF, NYSRPA etc. NY is about to go down the tubes in more ways than one.

BLOAT like never before!

Can some one please tell me why most of the major firearms manufacturers are still located in the NorthEast? The most liberal anti-gun area in this country. Don’t tell me the 5th and 6th generation employee doesn’t want to move. Anyone with any sense would tell them the same salary in a more gun friendly area (the South) would go farther with lower taxes, lower living costs, and your product will be well liked. If they don’t want to move, leave them. Plenty of people down south can do the same job just as well.
And these manufacturers pay taxes in the NE states and sell weapons to these people. PLEASE TELL ME WHY THEY STAY UP NORTH???

Just take the firing pin and stroke it on a piece of emery cloth. Works wonders. and the breach face can be cleaned of microstamps the same way.

That's what they want you to do. They WANT as many legal gun owners to perform an illegal act.

The book "Atlas Shrugged" had a relevant passage:

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against... We’re after power and we mean it... There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

Ayn Rand, ‘Atlas Shrugged’ 1957

Once you've filed down the microstamping, all it takes is one surprise police inspection, either because of a "domestic violence" incident, or some other excuse for police to get a warrent to search your home for your guns. Then when they find that you've illegally filed off the microstamping, then they can arrest and jail you without having to prove anything further.

(Almost dead) Tradition?

The oldest(and once greatest) gun shop in the US is still located in the heart of Manhattan.

I'm not that old and I still remember all the ranges around the city that are now gone. Before my time, people would bring guns to the office and go shooting after work.

Now everyone gasps and cowers if I dare mention guns. I feel like I'm the only real man left surrounded by a sea of weenies.

How times have changed...

I always recommend that you purchase a spare for the firing pin and one of each of every spring your weapon uses. Pistol, long gun, all of them.

The company I work for is headquartered in MA. You should see the looks we get when the wife and I go through and talk somehow gets to the the CCW license we both have. You would think the end times have come. Of course one of the office workers (#3or4 in the company) has a CCW from MA. How in the world did that happened I couldnt tell you!! (POLITICS)
You are right, so many weenies and so few men (or women) today. I wonder how much longer we will last.
As for all those companies staying up North, well I guess tradition beats saving money every time. I cant see WHY they stay. But tradition can be strong I guess.

The only goal of the leftist aka progressive gun hater is to ban the right to bear arms.
The recent SC ruling has stopped gun bans right now.
So now the leftist aka progressive gun haters will be to cost the gun owner more and more money to exercise that right.

I’ve heard that gangbangers just stick their hand with a gun in it into a plastic bag like you get in a supermarket. After you shoot you just pull your hand and gun out and the casings remain in the bag. How about that. Another problem solved.

Remington is located in Mayfield, KY now. So at least they’ve moved.
