Several Major Gun Manufacturers Refusing Business With Law Enforcement in New York
February 18, 2013  //  By:   //  Gun Control, New York  //  10 Comments

The general feeling amongst several gun manufacturers in the Empire State is that, if lawmakers are going to disarm law abiding citizens then they are going to limit the ability of law enforcement and government officials to obtain their products as well.

Last week we covered Olympic Arms:

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.

The latest update has six major weapons manufacturers joining the boycott.

Breitbart has a portion of each companies statements in regards to anti-gun legislation, including Larue Tactical, Olympic Arms, York Arms, EFI, Templar Custom, and Cheaper Than Dirt.

The most compelling statement in my view comes from York Arms, which simply ends with a statement to government customers – “Your orders have been cancelled”.

Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York. We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York. As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

For “civilian” customers residing in New York:

At your choice, we will:

  • complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY
  • refund your payment in full
  • hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

For LE/Govt customers in New York:

  • Your orders have been cancelled.

      How do we “dry up” their ammo, when recent government purchases have already “dried up” ours???

          All my life I followed the tenets of the US Constitution. I”m a retired Serviceman, and also a retired Police Officer. I do not begrudge police officers protecting themselves, being armed , and able to go up against armed predators, with grater fire power!!! . But it appears the powers that be, ( allow themselves , numerous ways to protect themselves, being armed or with body guards ) are preventing the citizens to defend themselves . 2 nd Amendment was added to the Constitution, just for this reason. ” Tyrrany from an over reaching government ” I took my oath of office seriously, and so should all other municipal, state, and Fed , Government, rerpresentatives. Crippling the 2 nd Amendment just guarrantees the rest of the Constutuions’ mandates null & void. Stand up, and ” Preserve and Protect “, like you swore on your oath !!!!

    Hey John…I just sent Remington Arms’ corporate headquarters in Madison, NC a personal invitation to relocate their Ilion plant to Raleigh, NC. They should give it some serious consideration…
