And why just ArmaLite? Where’s the outcry against Colt, Glock, Smith & Wesson, Springfield, Remington, Ruger and the dozens of other companies that sell to law enforcement?

better idea would be a general boycott
against New York, and any other
states that pass anti-gun laws.

ArmaLite does not halt sales to individual officers even in problematic states. Westrom is a former police officer, and Raley is a currently serving one. ArmaLite is well familiar with the fact that most rifles serving police officers are purchased by the officers themselves, and that they shouldn’t be punished for the actions of their political elite.

This tells me they just don't get it.

A goal is to have the serving police officer go to their chain of command and tell them they cannot get the tools they need to do their jobs BECAUSE OF THE STUPID LAWS YOU HAVE ENACTED!

Besides, they can't tell me that all of these departments don't already have all the weapons they need.
Witholding ammo from them, now - that'll hurt.

I have an ArmaLite AR-180 I just cleaned it with Ballistol. It was made in Sterling England. Hope to take to the range in a couple of days and put a few rounds through it. I bought it in the late 80’s. The 5.56 ammo is hard to find and expensive so I will not be blasting away, just making sure it is still sighted in. Saving the rest of my ammo for when it is really needed.

There isn't going to be an AWB any time soon and Armalite makes an excellent .308 rifle for a very reasonable price. Glad I got mine before they went into a 2 year backorder status. I would like to see them move from Illinois but that's a business decision that they will have to make for business purposes. My bottom line is that I just want them cranking out as many AR10s as possible without any obstructions.

I figure that these boycotts of government sales are only done by companies that don’t sell modern fully automatic rifles.

My personal view is that private ownership of fully automatic/crew served weapons should not be infringed or restricted. Certainly the Constitution envisioned private ownership of crew served weapons, per the Letters of Marque and Reprisal clause, and the Second Amendment would codify that the right to such arms shall not be infringed.

The Naval Militia (mentioned in Title 10 Section 311, iirc) was a major force in the Revolution, with privateers radically increasing Britian’s cost of continuing the war against the American colonies and later the United States.
