In light of the recent and numerous anti-gun and anti-2nd Amendment laws pending across the Nation, Alpine Guns will be joining other firearms manufacturers and distributors and limiting the business conducted in states that have passed laws limiting the right to keep and bear arms for their citizens.
Alpine Guns believes that there should not be any difference between the rights of citizens and the rights of government employees. Our policy will also help us to be sure we avoid the consequences of not conforming with the anti-firearm regulations in these various jurisdictions and exposing the company to litigation or criminal prosecution.
Alpine Guns does expect to lose some revenue by making this decision, however, it is essential to defend the US Constitution by making a statement about the importance of the Second Amendment in maintaining all our freedoms, not just the ones that many of these politicians do not agree with.
Alpine Guns will welcome the day when all law abiding citizens will be able to possess the most effective means and tools available for self-defense, regardless of where they live or for whom they work.
Umbrella Corporation Weapons Research Group – Join? Is there a club? Just kidding Lawrence! We absolutely agree with this philosophy. We haven’t made some grand statement simply because it feels a bit arrogant on our part but only because we are still a relatively small player in the overall scheme of things. We will probably add some verbiage to our website but we may possibly address it on FB too at some point.
Bison Armory is giving official notice that we will not sell items to states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizens rights to own them. This is the right thing to do and joining the list of esteemed companies already doing likewise is the only way we can go ourselves. Go Freedom!
Triplett Firearms Company
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. 3R1 Technologies, LLC does not recognize law-enforcement exemptions to local, state, and federal gun control laws. If a product that we sell 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.
The Tactical Toolbox
LE / MIL Sales Policy: 2/25/13During this time where there is much talk of banning firearms and foisting tyranny upon the people via a multitude of regulations ultimately designed to wrest arms and liberty from the hands of the citizen, it is time for the industry of freedom to make a stand.
Firstly, we need to recognize that depriving the individual of the liberty of arms, or the limiting thereof, is not a mere regulation, it is a direct attack on life without due process of law. If one is limited to only certain means of defense, is it not death he must choose should the circumstances require something outside the limit of his options? So, a regulation on the means of defense is certainly a death sentence. In this country it is held to be self evident that a man has a right to life. And his life should only be forfeit after due process has run its course. No law is due process in and of itself; it requires a court.
Secondly, registration is the road to death due to due to lack of defense against an oppressive government which can decide to exterminate unwanted factions of its now unarmed and defenseless people. Governments are not to be trusted with registration information. The historical evidence is clear enough from the abuses governments have perpetrated upon their own citizens in the last century alone. How many million Jews, Russians, Chinese, Pols, etc. have to die to make this point any clearer?
Thirdly, we must realize that restrictions upon the civilian population are not to rid a society of arms. The purpose is to concentrate arms possession to one class of individuals. This creates a real imbalance of power and always ends in violence of some sort. In the case of governments, they should derive their power, even firepower, from the people. Arms restrictions dissociate this power derivative.
In light of these things, it is both in the best interest of the citizen and this business to not sell to or provide service for firearms in possession of law enforcement in localities where the same firearms are banned or restricted from widespread civilian possession. More clearly, this means any law enforcement or governmental agency located where civilians are banned or restricted from possession (or regulated into de-facto restriction) will be restricted in like kind: no sales or service to that agency of any arms or parts restricted to the general public. This business will not contribute in any way to a deadly imbalance of power and all the inevitable results.
JCW Industries supports Law Enforcement. We have family and friends that have, and are serving in various agencies throughout this country. However, JCW Industries has cancelled all future, and pending sales to Law Enforcement Agencies in States with ANY laws that infringe on the 2nd Amendment Rights of the people of the United States of America. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for your cooperation.
Due to the complexity and amount of the laws involved, it is not practical for us to fully understand the exemptions. Thus it is in our best interest to not make any sales that involve special exemptions to the law.
As the owner of Paige Firearms, I firmly believe in the Second Amendment. Going forward Paige Firearms will not honor any sales to law enforcement or government agencies in states that infringe on the Second Amendment. If such items are “off limits” to the general public, law enforcement and government officials have no business having them as well. California and New York we are staring right at you! I find it easier to treat all persons in these states the same. Police, Government or citizen, if its not legal for one its not legal for all in my book. Thank you for your time. Please contact your representatives and let them know you wont stand for them caving on the Second Amendment. Remember, without the Second Amendment, there is no First!
There has been a lot of discussion about manufacturers not shipping to agencies within certain jurisdictions. For example, several companies will not ship any firearm to the entire state of New York. We understand and respect their opinion on this matter, however, we believe that they may be throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Similarly, there are many pro Second Amendment agencies within California. They do not deserve to be cut off simply because our state legislature is delusional.
After much deliberation, Franklin Armory has decided to base shipping decisions upon the specific policies that a given agency may have vis-a-vis civilian firearm ownership. If the agency is pro Second Amendment, then we will ship to them even if they are located within a state that is promoting unconstitutional restrictions. However, if the agency is on record espousing anti-2A ideology, we will not do business with that agency. …period.
The pro 2A agencies should be fairly easy to spot since most jurisdictions have known protocols outlining the availability of CCW permits. Any agency that is unwilling to provide CCWs to their honest, hardworking, civilians can look elsewhere for their procurement.
We have a long journey ahead of us this year. There are many unpatriotic elements of our government that seek to undermine our constitution. While we do not advocate open rebellion, I will close by quoting John Locke, a man that had significant influence on America’s Founding Fathers…
“But if a long train of abuses, prevarications and artifices, all tending the same way, make the design visible to the people, and they cannot but feel, what they lie under, and whither they are going, ’tis not to be wondered, that they should then rouse themselves, and endeavour to put the rule into such hands, which may secure to them the ends for which government was at first enacted.” (Second Treatise, Chapter 19).
West Michigan Tactical
West Michigan Tactical currently sells to Law Enforcement Departments throughout the country. We don’t have a lot of sales yet, but things are picking up as we are also a Federally Licensed SOT Dealer. I will be typing up West Michigan Tactical’s Company Policy tonight: We will not sell to a Law Enforcement Department any weapon that cannot be purchased by a regular citizen in the State the Police Department resides in. End of story. If a police officer or law abiding citizen with the proper paperwork cannot purchase an item personally, we will not sell it to a Police Department. This includes magazines. If a New York Department orders 30 round mags from us, they will be informed that they cannot purchase a magazine larger than a 7 round mag. Too bad those 7 round mags don’t exist…but I think the legislators knew that. This is not anti law enforcement, it is pro 2nd Amendment. Many of the law abiding citizens purchasing and owning these items are police officers themselves for their personal use. These states are making their own police officers criminals in their personal life and someone has to stop them. I am sure it won’t be just West Michigan Tactical stopping them but I hope EVERY DEALER and EVERY MANUFACTURER refuses to sell like we are going to do!
Thanks all! You’ve been added to the New York Boycott list.
Thanks also go to Jennifer, who sent me every one of these.
