Firearms Companies Restricting Sales to Government Agencies

Some firearm companies are now hitting back at government agencies who wish to impose restriction on firearm ownership of their citizens (h/t CNS News).

 

A growing number of firearm and firearm-related companies have stated they will no longer sell items to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.

According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban.

It looks to me like these companies have a whole lot more guts than the GOP leadership, who seems to get tongue tied trying to form a sentence defending the rights of this nation Citizens. The link has a list of those companies that have decided that if their firearms are too dangerous for the public then they must be to dangerous for the officials who seek to ban them. Here are just a couple of the statements from some of the companies:

 

Extreme Firepower Inc., located in Inwood, WV has had a longstanding policy that states:

“The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms…If a product that we manufacture is not legal for a private citizen to own in a jurisdiction, we will not sell that product to a law-enforcement agency in that jurisdiction.”

York Arms, located in Buxton, ME released a statement following new legislation in New York:

“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.”
