    Again I ranted about companies taking it to the government....maybe they read my post:D I REALLY like the last sentence.:rofl:

    Following in LaRue Tactical’s footsteps, Olympic Arms has announced that police and other government entities in New York are now customers non grata in their store following the passage of new York’s firearms ban. It’s unknown exactly how much business OA does with NYS entities, but I get the feeling that it’s the sentiment that matters the most. Presser after the jump . . .

    Press Release: Olympic Arms, Inc. Announces New York State Sales Policy

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and defender of the Constitution of the United States, and with special attention paid to the Bill of Rights that succinctly enumerates the security of our Divinely given Rights. One of those Rights is that to Keep and Bear Arms.

    Legislation recently passed in the State of New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of the United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia v. Heller – 554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago – 561 U.S. 3025 of 2010, and specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S. 174 of 1939.

    Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce 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 of such an entity – will no longer be served as customers.

    In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York – henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.

    If the leaders of the State of New York are willing to limit the right of the free and law abiding citizens of New York to arm themselves as they see fit under the Rights enumerate to all citizens of the United State through the Second Amendment, we feel as though the legislators and government entities within the State of New York should have to abide by the same restrictions.

    This action has caused a division of the people into classes: Those the government deems valuable enough to protect with modern firearms, and those whose lives have been deemed as having less value, and whom the government has decided do not deserve the right to protect themselves with the same firearms. Olympic Arms will not support such behavior or policy against any citizen of this great nation.

    Olympic Arms invites all firearms manufacturers, distributors and firearms dealers to join us in this action to refuse to do business with the State of New York. We must stand together, or we shall surely fall divided.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Schuetz President Olympic Arms, Inc.

  2. Now if we can get ammo manufacturers to do the same thing. :rofl:

    I love the fact they are basically saying "F" you.
     
  3. I hope that the action of OA catches on and the rest follow in their brave foot steps. No matter what amount of business they do with NYS putting their company reputation out their like this takes guts. They have in so much as hung a sign on their own backs that reads KICK ME.
    When there are too many following in their foot steps, legal action will be taken by local/state/federal governments that will simply tie everyone up in court wasting millions of dollars of our borrowed money that the little guys can't match. After all they are making the rules up as they go in this administration.
