In a perfect world, G&A suppliers would tripple their prices or cut the city off.
Pleeeese stop buying. Maybe that will help inventory get back to normal.
F him! Every gun manufacturer in America should immediately stop selling firearms and ammunition to any city employee from Minneapolis. Starve the police!
Hey Mayor Dumbass...where you been all these years? Did it take cues from your masters to start speaking out against crime and violence?
Or is this just a political stunt? If you really cared you wouldn’t have waited this long. Just follow your Leaders as a good lemming should.
Is this idiot going to buy guns and ammunition from anti-gun people? Just how would this work?
It’s time to go Ronnie Barrett on his ass.
Somebody here on FR said in the first thread of Rahm Emanuel going thug on the gun manufacturers that it was certainly coordinated with Obama. Now we see another big-city mayor jumping on the bandwagon. The only question is whether he’s a copycat or if he was in on it from the start, but I say it doesn’t matter.
I’m looking for this to go coast to coast within a few days as the roll is called for all big-city liberal mayors to similarly weigh in.
I guess we'll know how serious the manufacturers and wholesalers are about the 2nd Amendment when they stop doing business with retailers like this.
In all seriousness, isn't this almost word for word the classic backroom "protection" pitch we've seen in mobster movies and RICO trial testimony for decades?
Bringing out the ole Clinton trick. He tried to get the Governor’s of all the States to just buy from certain companies also. There is a letter from Mike Hucklebee Governor of Arkansas on the web that was a good smack down. They are up to their old tricks. Ruger at the time supported the old Assualt Weapon ban and they payed dearly with decreased sales.
Why not just use the Constitution instead, and require all Payments from Government to be made in Gold and Silver Coin?? Article 1 section 10 “ No State Shall make anything but Gold and Silver Coin a Tender in payment of Debts”
OK, Mayor R.T. Rybak, if you want to intimidate the suppliers to your police force, how about this? All the manufacturers refuse to sell the city of Minneapolis employees any guns, ammunition, spare parts, or training. We shall see how things work out for you dumbo, because it will certainly reduce police gun violence.
Another thought comes to mind: all the gun manufacturers and ammunition manufacturers are currently buried by customer demand for anything that goes “bang!”. Now is the time to tell these Donkey mayors to pound sand and put them at the end of the waiting line for anything in the way of orders. Tell them, it is a first come, first served market and you’ll have to take your turn like everyone else. This is especially true for gun grabbers. If you don’t like the way we do business, order your guns, ammo, spare parts, and training from the Violence Policy Center.
Oh please, what a load of “you are little people” bs!
Here is the “We do restrict our sales to only approved personnel, such as law enforcement, military or public safety personnel, said a Striechers employee” website.
It is not “restricted” to a damn thing.
IF there was an actual “Striechers employee” that said they restrict their sales to “approved personnel” they are either butt kissing the Mayor’s overinflated ego or they are asking for ID on VERY specific individual items.
Judging from the “the companies that we are buying from are going to Washington and are working with us” remark, I am sure this guy is a full blown communist agenda donk.
So they’re going to buy their guns and ammo from suppliers that don’t make or supply guns or ammo? Lemme know how that works out.
I just tweeted his sorry ass.
We buy a lot of guns and ammunition, we should really question whether the companies that we are buying from are going to Washington and are working with us or fighting against us, he said
This Mayor is living proof that you can’t fix stupid!
None of them are going to Washington and backing Obama’s gun grab you moron............
My idea????? They stop selling to fascist gobmints and refuse repairs to the same, in an effort to reduce them to their appropriate position of begging or being subsummed to the citizenry.
Notice that they don’t buy anything from businesses inside of Minneapolis. The Dems ran every gun & ammo shop out years ago. How’s that workin’ for ya, Rybutt?
