6 US Gun Makers Now Refusing to Sell Arms to Law Enforcement in New York

6 US Gun Makers Now Refusing to Sell Arms to Law Enforcement in New York

This story has been updated to add
two additional gun makers and sellers to the list of those no longer
patronizing law enforcement in states that do not support the Second
Amendment.
Since www.theblaze.com/blog/2013/01/15/cue-eye-roll-ny-senate-pass,
many manufacturers have sent that state (and others) a message: If
local governments are going to severely restrict the ability of citizens
to own guns, then these companies will not be selling to law
enforcement in those areas.
Among the gun manufacturers sending that message:

www.olyarms.com posted a press release on the https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=5730762460;amp;id=114264921930723 earlier this week. Their intentions were quite clear.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and defender of the Constitution
of the United States, and with special attention paid to the Bill of
Rights that succinctly enumerates the security of our Divinely given
Rights. One of those Rights is that to Keep and Bear Arms.
Legislation recently passed in the State
of New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it
illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large
selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though
the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the
government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of
the United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia
v. Heller – 554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago – 561 U.S. 3025
of 2010, and specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S.
174 of 1939.Due (to) 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.
www.extremefirepower.com/index.html
has a long-standing policy of not selling to law enforcement in states
that restrict private gun ownership. TheBlaze interviewed EFI’s
President Melinda Meador on the subject. Her statement was quite
succinct:
“We refuse to recognize
law enforcement exemptions on gun control. 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.”
The company’s policy supports a broad www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/15/group-of-second-amendmen;amp;utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=Share+Buttons# for sales. Meador reminded us that “law enforcement sales don’t make up a significant portion of the market.”


www.yorkarms.com www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/15/group-of-second-amendmen;amp;utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=Share+Buttons# is one that did not mince words on the company’s policy as it relates to gun sales for 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. As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short
barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to
New York governmental agencies.
For “civilian” customers residing in New York: 
At your choice, we will:
[*]www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/15/group-of-second-amendmen;amp;utm_medium=story&utm_campaign=Share+Buttons# your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY[/*]refund your payment in fullhold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are
in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.
For LE/Govt customers in New York:


Your orders have been cancelled.


www.laruetactical.com also posted their https://www.facebook.com/LaRueAccuracy/posts/529849683721877 on February 8th:


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.
Templar Custom of North Carolina is a
North Carolina-based maker of precision rifles. CEO Bob Reynolds spoke
with TheBlaze on Friday and reinforced the https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=5968167136;amp;id=325183637495280.
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.
