This is the second time a gun manufacturer has boycotted the sale of their firearms to law enforcement in protest of gun control legislation. Larue Tactical also announced restrictions in firearm sales to any state or local law enforcement in areas where the government is attempting to curb the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.
This one however, is specific to the state of New York. Olympic Arms is not only halting sales of their weapons to law enforcement, but they’re demanding repeal of the law and an apology to the American people.
I’m presenting it without commentary, because I’m not quite sure what to make of what the company is trying to accomplish.
Any thoughts readers?
Firearm manufacturer Olympic Arms announced that they will no longer sell to New York law enforcement in protest of the gun control laws recently passed there.
“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 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.”
“In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York — henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.”
