130+ Manufacturers Limit LE Sales in Anti-Gun States

By Woody published on in General, News

In a protest against new gun laws, more than 130 firearms dealers say they will stop selling guns to government and law enforcement officials in New York and other states unless those same firearms are also available to average citizens.

Originally, LaRue Tactical was one of a few companies that announced a new sales policy for state and local law-enforcement agencies. Cheaper Than Dirt! was also one of the early announcers. (Our sales statement is here.)

Companies have joined the protest mostly through word of mouth and in response to their customers asking about the issue. One of the toughest statements came from Olympic Arms, which is posted in the Shooter’s Log here.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation has decided not to get involved. Chris Dolnack, senior vice president & chief marketing officer for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, said, “Some have suggested that NSSF should bring attention to this protest movement. Individual companies are free to independently decide which customers and markets they wish to serve. However, agreeing with others to boycott certain customers or markets raises very serious legal questions concerning antitrust laws and may be illegal. Due to these antitrust concerns, NSSF is unable to promote this protest.”

    We as a people need to support the companies fighting these attacks on our rights, and when you have a choice in what your are buying … buy it from one of these manufacturers! Don’t support companies that don’t support US!

    Regarding my suspicions that Customs is barring imported ammo from clearing in:
    I called the D. C. offices of Cruz and Cornyn/TX, Lee/UT, Paul/KY and Enzi/WY and spoke to legislative aides about Customs and ammo. All of them, especially Enzi’s, were very interested and assured me that they would convey my concerns directly to those Senators. All I can do now is watch and listen to media that are NOT servile propaganda and disinformation tools to find out if my expressed concerns will have any effect.
    It’s impossible to get anybody at Customs, anywhere in the country at any level, on the phone. It’s always voice mail prompts, which I won’t waste time and breath on.
    I don’t think they want to talk to anybody, while they scurry and hide like pests when the lights are turned on.
    I encourage any concerned CITIZENS that may be now tuned into the very real possibility that Customs, following orders from further up the trough, is actually keeping ammo off the market…to BOTHER AND ANNOY UNRELENTINGLY their Congress people,State officials, Chamber of Commerce, Trade officials, Longshoreman’s Union officials, Wholesale and Retail executives…ANYBODY—even management of ammo companies in the countries where they operate. I’m sure that they’re not too happy about their stuff sitting and them not getting paid for it. Our Feds are unlikely to buy off everybody, maybe.
    Tula and Ishevsk in Russia, Norinco in China, Eley in England, Sellier & Bellot, Fiocchi, Aguila, Lapua, Rio etc. ALL make shiploads of ammo and really like getting those Yankee Dollars in exchange.
    Just think, if my suspicions are proved, righteous popular outrage and demands for redress may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back and GETS THAT VILE NWO FRONTMAN NOW SMEARED ON THIS NATION…OUT OF OFFICE and sent back to the “urban” hellhole he helped to perpetuate…if he doesn’t get locked up first.

    I heard something today that’s really upsetting.
    A longshoreman said that there’s plenty of foreign made ammo SITTING ON THE DOCKS and customs will not clear it in.
    If this is true. what else is needed as far as Fed served shyte sandwiches that AGAIN support calls for not only IMPEACHMENT of the installed pretender, but PROSECUTION of Oblahblah,his doggy Holder at DoJ and ALL the rest of the Fed ratboys and their co-conspirators that violate AGAIN The Second Amendment, in that ammo is clearly under any description of “arms”.
    I’m calling Senator Cruz of Texas office tomorrow on this, since he seems to be one of the few in Congress that IS NOT a craven bought off stooge or an outright servant of foreign/NWO (you know who I mean) interests.
    Houston is a big freight port and I can hardly wait to find out if Federal criminal skeeveyness has containers of ammo sitting on the wrong side of Customs.
    I’ll keep you posted on what I find out.

    Up. Until the last year or so I would have thought Ray’s comments to be based on conspiracy theories. Today with the DHS buying up billions of rounds of ammo and a few thousand armored vehicles, a reasonable person has to ask “WHY?”…

    I’m getting some hints and indications that Da Fedz are restricting IMPORTED ammo, as in KEEPING IT OUT OF THE COUNTRY—on top of the grossly obvious, intentional market manipulations that are keeping mostly anything with a brass case OFF THE SHELVES.
    Tula, Ishevsk, Eley, Fiocchi, Sellier & Bellot, Aguila, Rio, Norinco, Lapua etc.—there are BOATLOADS of it made all over the world.
    WHERE IS IT?
    If anybody has any details re: import restrictions on ammo, PLEASE provide such…so that there may be yet ANOTHER legal rationale and grounds to IMPEACH THE INSTALLED PRETENDER and start Clean Up Time, a lot.

    Also, remember well the price gougers and the big corporate gubbamint servants that are complicit in this national embarrassment.
    BOYCOTT THE PIGS AND DOGGIES now and forever.

    AWAKE—-TIME TO RISE!

    Consumers should also add Dick’s Sporting Goods to their list of companies not to do business with. Since their self imposed policy of banning AR type weapons, I have not and will not buy anything from Dick’s. BTW: That is an appropriate name for their company:)

    I want to applaud the Sheriffs’ in Colorado for their statement;

    “Weld County Sheriff John Cooke won’t enforce new state gun measures expected to be signed into law by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper, arguing the proposed firearms restrictions give a “false sense of security.”

    Cooke is joined in his opposition to the proposals by El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, who told an angry packed crowd at a meeting on Thursday in Colorado Springs he would stand firm against the bills.

    These are real American people!! Stand behind or in front of them, but support them!!!

    I also, want to support MAGPUL, for their stand against the Magazine Ban, and are pulling out of Colorado.

    When companies pull out of States that DO NOT SUPPORT our RIGHTS, I realize that some people there will loose their jobs, some will go with the company and when the company gets to the State they choose, people there will have jobs.

    Colt is also considering leaving Connecticut, hope they do!!!!
