How long till Washington State adopts a law identical to NY’s ?
The government starts to manufacture its own ammo. Drive the current manufacturers out of business altogether.
Basically, nationalize them.
exactly! And that’s on the mind of every gun grabber out there.
Exactly! DC is the root cause of this Gun-Grabbers.
The intent is already there. This movement(Gun-Grabbing) was started there, Ever heard of Waco?
As much as I would love to believe that... The organized firepower would be overwhelming. Listen up Google... These bloodthirsty tyrants want us to fire the first shot. Every American with a cell phone is an easy target. Finally, every gun owner, well just the clingers would be annihilated.
I have no idea. Not sure why you thought I would have any special insight on that. I’m in Illinois. The “Chicamrades” north of I-80 and Quinn would love to take us down that road, but central and south is pulling the other way. That’s kind of how I understand WA, Seattle a lib nirvana, but the eastern half of the state a lot more conservative. Based on your inquiry, I did notice there are groups at work there to push the gun grabbing, like Washington Cease Fire, for example. Their legislative objectives are as follows:
“Washington CeaseFire believes there are several laws that should be passed to reduce gun violence in Washington State. Those states that have the most restrictive gun legislation have just one-sixth the level of gun violence versus those states with the least restrictive laws, according to the book, Private Gun, Public Health, by Dr. David Hemenway of the Harvard School of Public Health. Other states have: closed the gun-show loophole; banned the sale of military-style assault weapons; limited handgun sales to one per month; carefully regulated concealed weapon permits, and banned open carrying of guns. None of those policies apply in Washington state, which ranks among the most loosely regulated states in terms of guns. Washington CeaseFire believe those policies should be adopted to save lives in Washington state.”

On their home page they are touting an interfaith prayer vigil, no doubt designed to pull the typical low information parishioner into the emotional vortex they are manufacturing. They are using sentimentalism and transferred guilt to sweet talk the gullible into trusting a government that loathes them. They are being Svengalied into a suicide pact. It is so ironically evil.
What a difference it makes that we lost a generation or two by simply failing to pass on the old knowledge that might have strengthened us, as a nation, against this deceit. I recall the parable my dad used to tell about the fox and the gingerbread man. It’s the kind of thing that prepares you for subtle, incremental attacks against your interests and well-being. It teaches that self-reliance and a healthy respect for the appetites of others can be all the difference between life and death. A nice retelling of it is here:
A parable for our time...yet so few today seem able to handle any truth that has a hard edge to it.
Communist countries either don't allow or heavily restrict Free Trade. They carry out protectionism and they try to choose winners & losers in the marketplace.
Free Trade is the economic version of Freedom of Association. Why are you against that?
Olympic Arms rocks! Lifetime guarantee on their AR’s, also.
Check other manufacturers...most are 3 yrs. or less.
I have stated on a couple of threads....I believe NY will be “the first shot” we have all been anticipating.
Then all heck breaks loose from there.
That’s the one reason I could support a Ron Paul as President. He’d pare all this back and it would be nice to see Congress scrambling to rationalize a lot of the Constitutional deadwood departments littering the Executive Branch.
That said, I’d be just as delighted to watch Congress keep him in line on a lot of other issues because he’s a nut. ;-]
Yeehaw! Right on.
“...Smart enough to paraphrase some historical greats is about it I think...”
Like all commie thugs, Mao, Che, and their kind were good at terrorizing those inclined towards being terrorized, butchering and assassinating innocent civilians who couldn’t shoot back.
But hey, other than that, they were swell guys...why, just ask any college professor.
“So... what happens if companies refused to sell weapons and ammo to the cops??”
Foreign companies will.
Makes me proud to be an owner of an Oly M4...
Let’s throw the federal agencies like DHS into this cesspool.
If you’re going to do the math go ahead and finish it. We magnificently armed Americans own enough ammo to stitch every DHS employee up, down and sideways, wall-to-wall and still have enough left over to stitch any other Alphabet agents who want a piece of the action just as thoroughly. I’ve lost count but I expect the entire Federal payroll is around 3 million warm bodies. There’s enough ammo in my home county to solve any problem that might come up along those lines. It’s no contest. There’s other stuff to worry about.
“It is always rewarding when people of Conscience and Character take a principled stand.”
Especially when in doing so, it might hurt their bottom line short term. Many did that with the large Sportsmen show in Harrisburg PA, and the British firm (Reed Exhibitions) that banned sale of AR15s, etc that ran it had to cancel because of a rebellion that began initially by small vendors and customers and then spread to bigger vendors and NRA. The politicians need to learn that their efforts at catering the whims of urban elite will cost them.
It can’t be denied that Mao was very charismatic. He had a hell of a rap about the beautiful future in store for China. His speeches were loaded with Hope and Change rhetoric.
Excellent. A company most deserving of our patronage and our dollars.
“...It cant be denied that Mao was very charismatic....”
No doubt whatsoever. Most of those guys ARE. It’s how they get people to follow them.
Look at Hitler. Same thing. He knew what his people were pissed off about, and he worked it.
History is full of them. We have one now - stumblebum that he is, he still reaches the stupid, the vapid, and the moronic.
Incidentally...if you ever want to read an amazing book about what Mao and his fun crew was doing in China, find a copy of “East To Freedom”, by Arlene Fukai.
It’s an old book from the late 50’s. She lived there and managed to escape the murder and slaughter.
Eye-opening story of what happens in a Worker’s Socialist Paradise when socialists get control.
Thanks, I'll try to find it.
I heard a great line on Bill Bennett yesterday, Because of the Anti-Fracking mentality in NY, the dividing line between PA and NY is like the Berlin Wall, with Prosperity on One Side and Poverty on the other Germany w/ NY being E.G.....
Good for Olympic, but do they really sell a lot of AR’s to NY LEO’s?
Olympic is a pretty low end AR.
Every firearms manufacturer in NY should relocate to Texas.
“The organized firepower would be overwhelming. “
You watch too many cop shows on TV.
Nice, they should also sue NY in Fed Court.
Have sent emails to both S&W and Ruger, asking they follow Olympic’s lead.
Sturm Ruger has been my choice on handguns. As a former Minnesota resident (don’t call me a Minnesota, I remain a TEXAN!), these companies may end up doing the same to Minnesota. Just as well, since most Minnesota law enforcement agencies are worse than useless.
Let the cops make their own ammo...my dad did when he was a policeman in Detroit, the city didn’t supple the cops with ammo but that was circs:1940
lol, should do background checks to make sure no state agents can make purchases.
i wonder if the stockpiling is just a budget game for the upcomming sequester.
if glocke were to do this then there would be howls.
