I love men and women of strong courage and solid backbone who boldly stand and do the right thing!
Disappointed with New York State lawmakers and other jurisdictions around the country who have passed strict gun control legislation, the companies—composed of firearm manufacturers, gunsmiths, and sporting goods retailers—have announced these policies in the past week.
Their various statements emphasize that such laws create a class of government employees with rights and and a class of citizens without rights. Thus, they refuse to aid the enforcement of such inequality.
The announcements read:
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entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York - henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.
The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms. Law-enforcement agencies are typically exempt from these restrictions. EFI, LLC does not recognize law-enforcement exemptions to local, state, and federal gun control laws. 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.
We will not sell arms to agents of the state of New York that hold themselves to be "more equal" than their citizens.
As long as the legislators of New York think they have the power to limit the rights of their citizens, in defiance of the Constitution, we at Templar will not sell them firearms to enforce their edicts.
Templar Custom is announcing 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 will no longer be served as customers.
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. As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.
Recently, companies such as LaRue Tactical and Olympic Arms have announced that they will no longer sell prohibited items to government agencies and personnel in states that deny the right to own those items to civilians. It has been and will continue to be Cheaper Than Dirt’s policy to not to sell prohibited items to government agencies and/or agents in states, counties, cities, and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their citizens. We support and encourage other companies that share in this policy.
Second Amendment activist groups Guns Save Life and Grass Roots North Carolina are currently urging big gun manufacturers Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson, and Glock to halt their sales to government agencies within states that have clamped down on their residents' right to bear arms.
Now, if we could get some ammunition companies to do the same thing, that would really make a statement.
If they indeed will refuse to sell to the Federales as well it could be progress.If they merely refuse to sell in States with strict gun laws-but sell to the standing Army where is the gain?
the smart thing to do would be to refuse to sell ammo or firearms to any and all Federal agencies until such time as they decide to comply with the Constitutional rights of American Citizens. This should also be extended to New York, California, Illinois, washington DC, and any other governmental agency that would deny any law abiding citizen their Constitutional rights.
I would also extend that ban on firearms and ammo, to the private sale to anyone that is a known employee of any of the above mentioned political districts
Gun confiscation is stealing....plain and simple. Gun registration is helping the Government identify gun owners, so they can steal our guns. Social Security ID's, so too, were pushed as it would never be used as identification.....
If you think, the Federal Government will stop at stealing your guns.....and then, NOT, come after your property rights, IRA's, Savings, and all other assets......AND, at the same time, come after your inalienable rights, liberties, and freedoms....
People, who advocate gun control, are an ostrich, with his head in the sand......A special kind of STUDID.....OR, extremely intelligent radicals, with an agenda of evil….Destruction of America, union with the United Nations.
My ancestors came here in 1637 on the ship Anne. I am vetted many times over. I was at a hearing where Obama and/or his attorney were to answer litigation over his being vetted. He never showed and never answered the petition….because he couldn’t, and more importantly, didn’t have to!
He is a Dictator now………so, what are we?
THANK YOU FOR BEING AN AMERICAN CO. MADE IN AMERICA MEANS JUST THAT . ( IT GIVES ME HOPE ) .
Great I just ordered or may I say backordered 1000 rds 5.56 from Cheaper than Dirt. GO Texas
Stand, hold firm the line, be strong and vigilant
I believe the Feds are supplying local police depts with new, state of the art arms and other stuff. I do not have the article, but I recently read this. So it could be the Feds who are passing arms along to local/state agencies. Look how they are arming the Middle East.
