It’s not like there is an oversupply of ammo.
I love this.
WooHoo! It’s a two-player game after all....
It is always rewarding when people of Conscience and Character take a principled stand.
Good for them!
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.
Smith and Wesson contact info here:
So... what happens if companies refused to sell weapons and ammo to the cops??
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
You disarm us? We disarm you! We The People are the sovereigns.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone.
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.
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.)
We need more of this to happen!
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.
It’s called standing up to the bullies!
We had all better get behind companies like Olympic Arms and LaRue.
Good for them, and us.
