Five gun companies tell New York to pound sand
Guns Save Lives ^ | 14FEB13 | GSL

Posted on 02/15/2013 4:34:34 PM PST by OzarkSailor

Five companies, thus far, have communicated their intention not to sell to any police or government agencies in New York State.

LaRue Tactical Olympic Arms Extreme Firepower Inc, LLC Templar Custom York Arms Guns Save Life is joining with Grass Roots North Carolina in calling for all American gun owners to pressure Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson and Glock to shut off sales to government agencies in New York State.

If you know executives in any of these companies, email them directly. If not, we’ve got some email addresses below for you.

Keep it short and sweet. Long missives will not be read, so save your time for constructive endeavors.

Here’s a suggested message, tweaking on GRNC’s suggested message: We don’t live in a police state: If it can’t be sold to citizens, it won’t be sold to State and local government.

And what will be the biggest irony is if New York has to purchase their guns and ammo from the Chinese. Then they will have an excuse as to why the weapons misfire.

Right on!

Manufacturers must do the responsible thing and stop selling to those governments which proclaim guns as “evil.”

The irony is delicious!

I am honestly choked up.

Let the Red Coats man the line. We shall snipe them from the trees.

Come and take it, aholes! We outnumber you at least 5 to 1...

lol.

I find this funny. Let NY governments figure out what a real “gun free zone” is.

I have no idea why Remington is still in the state of New York. Does that company have a death wish?

The companies are just being cautious. After all, they'd be in a lot of trouble if they accidentally shipped "police only" weapons to a private citizen disarmed subject living in New York.

They need to put together a website listing these companies doing this so that the rest of America will know where to buy.

Let Noo Yawk and Bloomie buy their guns from the Chinese. It'll show what their true colors are.

Excellent! This is what we should have been doing all along. Now to do the same with other companies regarding other issues.

‘ey! They got Holder and Janney the Fanny Napolitano. They don’t need ammunition distribution companies. They just need to go south of the border and drive-through.

It will be even more "interesting" how many don't.

Chinese imports were made illegal, AFAIK. But that's a good idea. Maybe it will keep other imports unobstructed (e.g., Russian, Serb), if municipals need them. Here's a suggestion for a sharp, new police uniform for NY, to go with their new weapons.

Five gun companies tell New York to pound sand. Updated: Now six.

Five companies, thus far, have communicated their intention not to sell to any police or government agencies in New York State.

•LaRue Tactical,
•Olympic Arms,
•Extreme Firepower Inc, LLC,
•Templar Custom,
•York Arms,
•NEW: Cheaper than Dirt.

Guns Save Life is joining with Grass Roots North Carolina in calling for all American gun owners to pressure Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson and Glock to shut off sales to government agencies in New York State.

If you know executives in any of these companies, email them directly. If not, we’ve got some email addresses below for you.

None. It’s the urbanites who force that crap thru. Across America rural folks are conservative but in states like NY, they are simply outnumbered. Kind of like America and the national vote.

Good. Sig and Glock getting on the NY ban is sweet. Just charge them triple if they cave.

Imagine the NYPD with Chinese Type 59 Makarov pistols and Chicom Type 56 AKMs (with 7 round magazines to be legal). Please suppress your laughter at the idiot Donkey Governor Cuomo, Donkey state assembly, and Mayor Bloombeg.

And tell them not to forget cutting off the spare and replacement parts as well. Take a lesson from the demmodummies book and cut them off including ammunition.

It doesn’t. Nothing better than a pre-emptive nudge.
