Skip to comments.Gun Companies to Law Enforcement in Anti-Gun States: We’re Not Doing Business With You Anymore
Posted on 02/16/2013 9:18:30 AM PST by EXCH54FE
As the gun control debate rages on, weve seen a host of gun-rights advocates standing up for the Second Amendment. In addition to citizens, the NRA, the National Sheriffs Association and countless others, a number of companiesincluding gun manufacturers, sporting good retailers and gunsmithsare now taking a stand by refusing to sell to law enforcement in New York and other states with restrictive gun laws.
The message in these companies statements is essentially about equalitylocal law enforcement and government agencies should not have rights that citizens do not. Thus, if states such as New York choose to adopt restrictive gun laws and exempt law enforcement from those laws, the companies will no longer serve them as customers. Breitbart compiled a list of the statements:
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.
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 -

I’d imagine the years leading up to and including 1775, and probably thru the war of 1812, very few, if any, American weapons were sold to King George.
Maybe if those 3 companies realized they’d lose their business in the other 56 (lol) states, they’d realize it’s very short-sighted to clamor for all the marbles in NY.
I will purchase no gun or ammo from any company that supplies the tyrant government of America.
Manufacturers need to expand this policy to refuse repair work (especially warranty repairs) on any of their products stamped with a law-enforcement "property of" marking from the offending jurisdictions.
This won't shut out the offending states completely, but it'll make it more expensive for them to out-gun the citizenry.
It’s still a free country—for now—and we Americans may not be buying Government Motors’ Volts, but we are buying American guns and ammo.
Smith and Wessons’ sales are good now and they might be even better if they had not collaborated with Clinton’s goons with the `94 AWB.
Glock, Sig Sauer, Sellier & Bellot—take a memo: Americans vote with their wallets.

Doesn’t matter. If the feds can’t get arms and ammo here, the chinese would be more than willing to supply them with what they need.
Did you actually believe the US is the only country that can manfacture weapons and ammo?
Do you think the federal government is going to let something like a boycott stop them from achieving their goals?
Tactically it might not do much, strategically it might shine a light on our nascent police state.
57 states not 56.
