Perhaps it’s not fair to deny law enforcement the means to purchase a gun, but, many states are doing all they can to deny their citizens their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms
(The Blaze) Last Friday TheBlaze reported on a growing list of gun manufacturers and retailers who had stopped selling to law enforcement in states that were enacting stringent new gun laws.
Since that report, the initial list (seen below) has changed. However, none of the “big three” (Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson) providers to law enforcement have stepped up and joined the companies who have chosen to take a public stand on the issue. In less than two weeks, at least 18 companies have made the decision to stop selling to law enforcement in states that limit a private citizen’s right to own a gun.
- Olympic Arms, Inc
- La Rue Tactical
- EFI, LLC — Extreme Firepower
- York Arms
- Templar Custom
- Cheaper Than Dirt
- Bullwater Enterprises
- Westfork Armory
- Smith Enterprise
- Alex Arms
- Spike’s Tactical
- Quality Arms
- Liberty Suppressors
- Doublestar Corp
- American Spirit Arms
- Trident Armory
- Head Down Products
- J&G Sales
In some cases, like Armalite, the companies will, in fact, sell to individual police officers who are purchasing the weapons themselves, but not the actual police department. I really like the stance of Trident Armory
Sunday night, 9pm. As of this moment, all contract bids and offers, as well as any current production contracts for any and all US government agencies and affiliates by Trident Armory are null and void.
“We will no longer participate with, or work for a government where the “rights” of the people are able to be adjusted by the whim of the government”.” I will not build guns which can be used to disarm my fellow Americans
And here’s the NRA’s ad, which will surely annoy liberals and gun-grabbers with the notion that government doesn’t grant us rights and doesn’t make us free
