Just where are the LE agencies gonna buy their firearms and ammo from when no mfg will microstamp, thus cannot sell into NY?
Isn’t it about time the firearms industry bands together with gun owners and refuses to sell to any LE agency where these kind of regulations are in place? It would be painful economically at first, losing the sales to those agencies/states, but once the “unintended consequences” of these type of laws were felt, the long term benefit would vastly outweigh the short term economic losses.
I can’t believe that the firearms industry can be so shortsighted.
I can just see the antitrust case started by Attorney General Holder or Cuomo after that kind of a tactic. I totally agree with you, but I don't see it happening. The firearms companies (like most businesses) mainly try to stay under the radar.
Oh, they will make microstamp-enabled firearms. Likely 50%-100% markup from a non-microstamp firearm. Legal citizens suffer, criminals are unaffected.
