Number of firearms manufacturers refusing to sell to governments triples



Turnabout is fair play.

CNS News – On February 22, “Right Views” reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.

In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the “Firearms Equality Movement,” has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118. The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.

Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:

“Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.”

Fellow patriots, here are the numbers-Glock (770) 432-1202, Sig Sauer (603) 418-8190 and Smith and Wesson (800) 331-0852 ext 3627 and ask for Law Enforcement Sales and tell them you will no longer purchase their firearms if they continue supplying law enforcement in those states that want to deprive you of your constitutional rights under the Second Amendment. Sixty-five percent of all purchases are made by ordinary citizens. If they realize they are going to lose money and their stock value will go down they’ll think twice. It is up to us to step forward, please join me.

“Our” executive branch will attack munitions makers in every way they can. Lawsuits and taxes are most likely first moves. Our question must be “Whether ’tis nobler to endure… or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing end them.” Will’s quote won’t end with a period, but with surrender or slaughter, or surrender and slaughter. Not yet, but tragically, too soon and too bad.

If they can force you to purchase a product (Health Insurance), they can force you to sell a product (guns).

The not-so-useful idiots on the Supreme Court have found that the Commerce Clause can encompass just about anything.

Not surprising from a bunch who thinks a “Right to Privacy” (previously unfounded in the Constitution) allows you to kill babies.

We should be so proud.

It’s a wonderful gesture on the part of the gun manufacturers, but I don’t know how effective it will be. If these local police departments can’t get what they need from the manufacturers, they will probably just get them from the Department of Homeland Security or some other Federal agency. With the way the government is buying guns and, especially, ammunition, I think the gun manufacturers will have a long wait before they see any results to this protest. But good for them for trying it.

I’d like to see Glock, S&W, Colt, Berretta and the ammuniton manufacturers get behind this. However, anybody who refuses to sell to the feds can probably count on a nice, long, dinner date with the friendly folks over at the IRS.

If you can’t get ammo, the guns won’t due much good. Ammo manufactures needs to cut supply off DHS and give to general public.

This is great but as I have posted repeatedly we need the ammo manufacturers refusing to sell not only to anti-2A states but also fulfilling the absurd ammo orders by the fed govt. They have enough ammo for a 24yr Iraqi style war when it was at its highest level of violence OR 5 rounds for every single American! PLEASE if you are engaged in contacting weapons and gun related gear manufacturers STOP and instead START contacting the ammo makers to stop sales to anti-2A and more importantly the feds! The feds and LE have enough ammo, there is nothing available for us, we need it as much as they do! Folks the ammo makers hold the keys to this entire debate, whether a gun is in your hands, LE or the govt its USELESS without the ammo! Ammo makers are not beholden to the govt they are private businesses… Read more »

The people need to stop underestimating how devious our government can be. Those saying “they’ll never get my guns” – well, they don’t need them if you have no ammo. No one has yet stopped Obama from bullying congress, the supreme court, people, or manufacturers. This nation and congress let Gibson Guitar hang out on a limb. Holder stole their money and their materials without any charges against the company.

The firearms companies should issue a recall on all the guns in the hands of government officials and the body guards that protect them.

Then send them a letter stating they are beyond repair, and can’t be sent back.

America as it should be died along time ago. We have become too lazy and negligent to stop the republic from unraveling. So we are just along for the ride. Fifty years from now we will live in a society with barely a heartbeat and just trying to scratch out a meager living to feed our families. We will tell stories to our grandchildren of what America once was but they will not believe us.

Given that there are thousands of manufacturers that make weapons, ammo and accessories this really doesn’t mean anything. Unless a major manufacture with existing guns or ammo being used by the fed steps up this is a fly fart in the wind.

The manufacturers in Europe, Africa, South America, and Asia will sell their wares to whomever pays for them. They will not honor the boycott because they do not abide by our Constitution. However, they have distributors in this country that can boycott, which would force them to try to scramble and find other distributors. That would hurt them for a brief period of time.

I hope this doesn’t come off wrong; There comes a time in every man and woman’s life when they must make a decision. “Is America worth fighting for?” I ask this after many hours of thought. The road we face to save our republic is going to be the likes of something Americans have only watched on TV or the big screen. We see how countries are torn apart because of war. People we love will be killed. Cities will be the first to explode, then, the tide will follow to towns and counties. No one, save a few, will be exempt from the destruction a civil war would produce. The reason I asked the question isn’t because I think America isn’t (worth) fighting for, it’s because I’m not sure if we the people aren’t too late. Imho, we should’ve had this debate in the 50’s and 60’s when the… Read more »

Good for the firearms manufacturers!

Now, can you imagine if the soda manufacturers stopped selling soda in New York in protest of Bloomberg’s stupid nanny rules on soda sizes? (I know the soda issue is a low priority in comparison to our 2nd Amendment Rights, but this is just one small example of how we Americans are losing our freedoms — bit by bit.)

I think this is a phenomenal idea and not just in regard to firearms manufacturers and dealers but to EVERY business and agency that deals with the federal government. This is one variable liberal terrorists never accounted for – a refusal of the people to willingly serve a government that wishes to enslave them. If the government wants to overstep the bounds of the Constitution then every financial institution, every farmer, every doctor, every business, nay every AMERICAN should cut its ties with these thieves until such time as they are willing to submit their sacred honor sincerely to the sovereignty of the US Constitution and its laws. This country was founded by the people and for the people, not for and by an elite group of thieves and scum bags. This government has forgotten who it works for, and if slaves are what liberal terrorists wish to be then… Read more »

I’d feel a lot better if more than a few companies would stop selling the government ammo of any kind. Force them to make their own.

I am heartened that many are joining up not sell their wares. This is good news. I hope the trend continues. We have a friend that sells guns at gun shows. He is having major problems with supply. He thinks eventually it will even out, but people are lining up in droves to buy guns. He’s out of many of the popular models and doesn’t know when he will be able to re-stock.

You can buy more than one over time, but may only buy one at a time. And the last time I went to west coast, either one, they were out of target. Only had FMJ hollow point. Which you can shoot as well but it’s spendy…

While I agree with you in concept, we must realize how many Americans (just like you & I) are gainfully employed by the industries that support our military & Pentagon. I think boycotts can & do work; I don’t want to see any American workers become the unintended consequences of this action, though.

If the gov’t starts making their own, the size of the fed, state and local gov’ts will balloon even larger. I say the manufacturers should drive up the raw materials supplies. For the feds to disseminate their stockpiles to state and local gov’ts

They should be, but they are not. In Bushmaster’s case, it’s owned by Cerberus, the investment firm run by a notorious left-winger. Cerberus has been trying to dump it’s arms manufacturing investments, but hasn’t done so, yet, as far as I know. As long as they can make money from government (big government-big business’ bestest buddy) they’ll keep selling to it, regardless of the ultimate effect on the 2nd Amendment and our rights when the government says no more guns for the civvies.
