Firearms Companies Restricting Sales To GOVERNMENT Agencies In Areas That Restrict Gun Rights
CNS News ^ | 2/22/2013 | Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr.

Posted on 02/22/2013 4:08:03 PM PST by sheikdetailfeather

A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them.

According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban.

Extreme Firepower Inc., located in Inwood, WV has had a longstanding policy that states:

"The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms...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."

York Arms, located in Buxton, ME released a statement following new legislation in New York:

"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."

I would like to see ammo makers, starting with Remington, refuse to sell the government any more ammo.

It’s movement in the right direction if nothing else. It would be nice to see the major manufacturers join in though.

Nice idea but I have not heard of any city or state having trouble buying firearms.

Where there is a profit to be made some one will rise to the occasion and take advantage of the opportunity.

(EXCERPT)

While the President and the rabid left continue to pursue a ban on semi-automatic firearms, manufacturers are fighting back by refusing to sell to government agencies that support the President’s plan.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emannuel tried to pressure Bank of America to stop doing business with firearms companies. Viewed as perfectly acceptable behavior by a large portion of America, firearms manufacturers copied the tactic and returned the favor.

Larue Tactical, Olympic Arms, Templar Custom, Extreme Firepower, Barrett Arms and now RAM Arms have vocalized that they will not sell their products to government agencies that support the President’s position on gun rights.

I am thinking this is going to have to take public pressure on the bigger companies to do the same thing or we will not purchase from them anymore. You are right about the profit being the driving force here for them.

That is exactly the spirit of the Second Amendment. Ammo manufacturers could do the same and probably increase their profits, since the police often get a bulk discount, and the manufacturers will well all they want for the next couple years even without police sales.

I’m seeing a downside here. What’s to stop the State or Obastard from issuing an Executive Order forcing the sale to the gubmint - or denying them tax permits - or lookie there! an IRS audit? - or a million other “persuasive” chicago thug style tactics.

Another downside.

What’s to stop Obastid, Holder and the other crooks in the White Hut from doing a REVERSE Fast and Furious?

Just buy back the guns they sold to Mexico.

And as for ammo? Hell, the DHS already has stockpiled 200 million rounds of ammo already.

(Gee I wonder what they will do with all that firepower?)

Given the sales levels and increased prices...the fire arm manufacturer’s should all move out of the RAT states for right to work states..”refuge states” where freedom still lives.

Roger that.
Re-think their priorities, send everything to Walmarts, Academy, gun stores, etc. first and if there's anything left over, send that to DHS.

Or not.

Well maybe they can come up with a new 7 round box. And sell them one at a time.

True but if Glock and S&W stopped selling repair parts that might begin to hurt.

I can’t say for sure but in most cases parts are purchased through a dealer/distributer. So stopping sales of parts to these government agencies could be difficult to accomplish.

When the manufacturer sells parts to a distributer they do not know who the final consumer will be.

In some cases the manufacturer tells the distributor that if we catch you selling to (fill in the blank), you are no longer a distributor.

Citizens are standing in line to buy guns and ammo, no store I go into has either. AT least nothing other than bolt action single shot stuff, and no ammo of any kind, except bird shot 12 gauge shotgun.

Manufacture A sells to Distributer B who sells to Dealer C who sells to Municipality D.

End result is that everybody makes a profit and Chicago does an end run around the embargo.

With the government buying up billions of rounds I am not surprised that ammo is hard to find.

Fear has also prompted hundreds of thousands of previously gunless people to go out and buy firearms. The consequences of this are record sales and profits for firearms manufactures and empty shelves for gun stores.

Get back to me when Glock, S&W, Colt and Beretta have joined in.

Exactly! And while I appreciate the effort of the six firearms manufacturers who have joined the "boycott," I'm willing to bet that none of them do much business in New York, and therefore, they have nothing to lose.

Good.

Be great when they stop selling them ammo too.

In previous generations the answer would be- the people.

But with the now weakest generation America has yet seen- the answer is - not one thing.

Obama could Nuke Kansas and the worst he’d face is stern vanity posts on FR.

We are exactly where we deserve to be.

You’re so right, even if only to make an example — Pick one. My vote would be to shut New York out!

“It’s movement in the right direction if nothing else.”

I like the concept, but we’ll just end up with police forces armed as ChiCom troops (though all the uniforms will be size “small”.

Any bets on whether it would result in government takeovers of the firearms/ammo industries and seal the deal of all out war until we were either subjugated or managed to replace the corrupt politicians?

Exactly. We don't quit supporting the govt with our money, and money talks; we don't make appearances at govt offices and protest; we don't even write letters. We release what little pressure we have, posting on the internet.
