Serbu Firearms, a manufacturer of bolt-action and semi-automatic .50 caliber sniper rifles, is refusing to sell their wares to the NYPD. Their reason, of course, is that owing to unfair gun laws, they will not support law enforcement in New York.
Serbu is one of almost 150 companies that has officially refused to sell to law enforcement in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act, the controversial gun control package that has been met with scorn by gun owners across the nation.
The company posted the NYPDs inquiry as well as their refusal to their Facebook page, with names omitted.
Company founder Mark Serbu said, Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.
He also said he felt bad about not being able to outfit the officers, because although he would like to get his guns into as many police departments as possible, his decision is a matter of principle.
Because of a stupid law the venerable NYPD wont have the best tools for the job.
Whats interesting about this is that while Serbu makes a fine firearm and impressive .50 BMG rifles, theyre not a first-tier company in the sniper rifle world and are perhaps best known for their compact Super-Shorty shotguns.

Maybe...just maybe.... The NYPD can take advantage of THE GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE!!!!!!!

Who ever those JTB guys are, they need the semiauto 50 cal. Initial accuracy does not matter then; they can just keep pulling the trigger until they hit the right target ...
