More Firearms Manufacturers Tell New York to Suck It

The other day I thanked Olympic Arms for taking a principled stand for our Second Amendment rights and telling New York to get bent – that it no longer wanted its business.

It looks like more firearms manufacturers are following suit.

La Rue Tactical

Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.

State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.

We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.

EFI

The Federal Government and several states have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms. Law-enforcement agencies are typically exempt from these restrictions. EFI, LLC does not recognize law-enforcement exemptions to local, state, and federal gun control laws. 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.

Templar Custom

We cannot legally sell rifles to New Yorkers as private citizens.

We will not sell arms to agents of the state of New York that hold themselves to be “more equal” than their citizens.

As long as the legislators of New York think they have the power to limit the rights of their citizens, in defiance of the Constitution, we at Templar will not sell them firearms to enforce their edicts.

Templar Custom is announcing 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 will no longer be served as customers.

York Arms

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.

I would like to extend my gratitude to all these companies and any others that refuse to do business with tyrants, and I would encourage all firearms manufacturers to adopt similar policies wherever they might be – especially if a federal ban is enacted.

  1. Thank you for posting this information. It is a nice counterbalance to the onslaught of maudlin hand-wringing lately from the anti-gun apparatchiks in the media and their hapless ninnies. Just today the New York Teacher’s Pension Fund announced their divestiture from publicly traded gun and ammo makers. Not that such a move will do anything to the companies that are about to announce unprecedented profits.

    1. +1 Based on what I’ve read regarding the financial status of a number of public sector retirement funds that are divesting themselves (ie. CA, IL) of firearms and related industry stocks, I really don’t think they have they the luxury of making an investment decision based on emotion rather than facts. Worse, making an emotional investment decision to make a political statement is compounding the incompetence.

  2. Those firearms manufacturers who have yet to join this campaign should be boycotted by civilian purchasers.

  3. These firms have publicly stated they refuse to sell to certain government agencies. It is a start.
