LOVE IT: Six Firearms Manufacturers Tell New York to Get Stuffed

Home - by - February 16, 2013 - 13:00 America/New_York - 22 Comments

DOUG ROSS

Six companies have thus far informed New York officials that they will not sell goods to any police or government organizations in the state.

[We join in the calls] 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.

    Any arms company being run by good businessmen can see that gun prohibition would be the end of their companies.
    Surprised outfits like “Cheaper Than Dirt” haven’t figured that out.

    Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t LaRue Tactical take the position that they WOULD sell to Govt agencies but only what they were allowed to sell to the citizens of the same state?

    CTD makes guns? Didn’t know that. Would still wager they don’t.

    If Smith and Wesson join in, that would be a deciding factor in what brand of concealed carry weapon I purchase next. I am in the market. Right now, it’s between an M&P Shield and a LCP-9.

    Good to see this mindset going viral. Makes me feel proud of these guys.

    Dadof3, CTD doesn’t make guns that I am aware of. Just sales. Don’t know why they listed them with Manufacturers. Still good news.

    Mr. Gates – I would consider going to a range that rents both of them and try them out… I know people who love/hate both.

    Johnny Freedom – Thanks. That’s good advice. One of my buds loves his Shield. Don’t know anyone who has the other.

    Unruly, agreed. On every point you made.

    Mr Gates, Smith & Wesson will be good to watch. They buckled last time and put locks on their revolvers after that.

    If they do stand with us I will be very impressed because it will be an about face from the last time they were up against the wall.

    I like my pre-lock era 586-3 S&W. No lost key will be causing my death.

    @ Mr. Gates: Be sure to look at the Springfield XD’s. The Kahr CW series also looks like a good carry option. Do your research- there are lots of reviews online and video reviews on YT. If possible, shoot before you buy.

    @ Dadof3 S&W got a lot of criticism for those corporate decisions. People on our side were calling for their demise as traitors to the industry. My take is that they did what they felt they had to, to survive. They are stronger now than ever, and their product line is expanding. That is good for all of us.

    BTW, I hate those side locks. None of my Smiths have them.

    …that they WOULD sell to Govt agencies but only what they were allowed to sell to the citizens of the same state…

    That is what all firearms manufacturers and gun dealers should do. If it’s good enough for the citizens, it’s good enough for the police. Watch the ‘tard lawmakers go apeshit because THEIR security detail only gets to use 7 round automatic pistol magazines and 15 round semi-automatic rifle magazines.

    Then, when some crazed Jared Loughner type busts through the security because there aren’t enough bullets going downrange, the ‘tard lawmaker wets himself and falls into a fetal position (can I say fetal in regards to a libtard?) while sucking on his thumb and bleating for mommy. After it’s over, they’ll find out the shooter was using 30 round mags in his rifle that he obtained illegally, but the ‘tards still won’t be able to connect those two dots.

    Pretty soon Cumo, Bloomberg and Rahm will be reduced to buying Kalashnikovs and Chinese knock offs. Though I suspect they’re good with that.

    Well, Stranded, As I see it, we first have to bust up their mindset that they are better than us and they shoudn’t be held to the same rules.

    That schism is the prob as I seee it.

    Not really feeling represented lately.

    Rando, I’m hopeful that their experience of being dis-respected by their real base, the public purchasers of their products, results in a better choice this time.

    @ Rando: IIRC, S&W was owned by a Brit firm at the time, making their actions fairly predictable. Now that they’re back in American hands, I think they’ll be a bit more firm in their support of the Second Amendment.
