It’s not like there is an oversupply of ammo.

Olympic Arms is within their rights not to serve New Yorkers. And they’re correct in saying that the guvmint of NY State is NOT within its rights to pass such freedom-restricting laws.

Excellent, BUT — Olympic needs to extend the moratorium to the federal gubmint. In fact, the Feds should have been named first.

BTW, my antivirus (webroot) is kicking up a warning on the links at the end of the article (for contacting other gun manufacturers), claiming they are infected with a known threat.

NOAA really needed all of those hollow point rounds.. by golly, the next time they say evacuate they mean it. What did I read, DHS has enough ammo to shoot every American five times? Even if it is only enough to shoot every American twice, we should be pissed. Our Killer President seems a bit blood thirsty.

I was hoping other manufacturers would take Ronnie Barrett’s example, and apply it themselves.

For anyone who doesn’t know, Ronnie Barrett (of Barrett .50 fame) wrote a letter to the state of CA when they banned his rifle for sale to the public. It seems that more than a few had been sold to law enforcement, and Ronnie said “no more!” In addition to that, he stated flat out that he will offer no repair or other services to the state of CA, nor any law enforcement agencies, first responders, etc... Not even warranty work!

Now it’s important to make sure that OA knows how much we appreciate their act!

Gun manufacturers have backbone.

Most business are PhonyCon Liberal today ......they would never take such a stand. Heck, I bet soon we will have some bedwetter Liberal Business Socialist Free Trader Communist Globalist tell us how wrong this gun maker is

I like the stand Olympic is taking

Since Olympic Arms are specifically listed as being banned by California since about forever I hope they’ve written similar letters to Sacramento in the past.

If it were one as big as Federal/ATK or Olin, It might have an effect. But those companies are so far up the governmental butt that it’s highly unlikely.

I applaud Olympic, but would be unsurprised if they had nearly zero sales to NY law enforcement agencies in recent years.

All gun and ammo manufacturers should stop selling to state and federal government purchasers that participate in attacking gun rights until the assault on the 2nd A ceases. I would be fairly safe in saying that the guns not sold to LE and governments would be gobbled up by average law abiding people.

“DHS has enough ammo to shoot every American five times?”

Americans have enough ammo to shoot every DHS employee 530,000 times.

Since the Heller USSC decision, little has changed for the better. The cities that infringed on citizen’s rights effectively scoffed at the ruling and continued infringing on citizens’ rights. Recently, the infringements have been poured on with glee and with absolutely no concern for USSC rulings or citizens’ rights. Rights and rule-of-law mean nothing to many politicians. They now think they face little to no opposition and are free to do whatever they please.

Olympic Arms’ action may cost the company some money and that is to be respected. Buy from them if you can. Barrett deserves support, too.

I hope all firearms manufacturers stop selling their products in NY.

In my fantasy land, I'd like to see firearms and ammunition manufactures move to free states. There are number of these businesses in NY, CT, MA, IL, and CA. It would make it very interesting as a lead up to CWII. (Yeah, that is twisted, but I am fed up with government.)

Very good that they cited the Miller case. That case stands for the proposition that the RKBA extends to military arms, and that so much as a federal tax on military arms is unconstitutional; never mind banning citizens from possession.

That is, until Scalia modified the Miller case, to stand for the proposition that unconstitutional bans become constitutional, as long as SCOTUS avoids ruling on the ban. Now, the Miller case is read as allowing only what is in common use, whatever the dickens that is.

Considering who is in the White Hut I imagine the government would just buy their arms and ammo from their friends and financial supporters in China and Russia.

I disagree, and I'm gonna sue for discrimination.

Hey, if gays can sue for discrimination for not being catered to for weddings and get thousands of dollars in damages, I can sue for not being served ammo.

“If Mao Tsedong ever said that I think he was merely quoting Sun Tzu.”

You could be right, TigersEye. I never considered that ChiComm butcher Mao was a towering intellect nor a warrior.

My own view, which has nothing to do with anything, is that I could have taken that fat-ass pig Mao in a one-on-one sword fight and cut his commie head off.

I always enjoy talking with you, TigersEye. Semper fi, buddy.

No, I don’t think Mao was too bright either. Smart enough to paraphrase some historical greats is about it I think. Just a bamboozling thug IMO. Thanks for the compliment and the Semper Fi, sd. If there is one thing in life I should have done and didn’t it’s join the Marine Corps.

This is great and I applaud Olympic for taking the moral high road, but I really doubt that Olympic is losing all that much in sales in New York. Even if Olympic is a big player, the obvious concern is that am unethical supplier will fill the void.

This is where we come in: We need to send a clear and unequivical message to the firearms and ammo industry that if you do business with the State of New York (or its muncipalities or political subdivisions),then we will not do business with you. And equally important, if we live in a gun-friendly red-state or municipality, then we need to convince our elected representatives to refuse to do any business with firearm/ammo manufacturers and distributers who do business with New York.

Your best years are ahead of you, and you will do fine, defending your family and community. I have no doubt of that. Judging by what I’ve read from your posts, you’re in the right place at the right time.

Best wishes to you and yours.
