Since this company was created, it has never sold products to anti-gun states. There are two main reasons we have chosen this stance. First, we sincerely hope that those states will change their views on guns, or that 2nd amendment supports would move from those States. Secondly the depth and breadth of laws that we would need to keep track of make it very difficult to deal with those States, and we run the risk of inadvertently breaking some law in regards to what people can and cannot purchase.
Recently there has been a lot of companies officially stepping forward and clarifying their position in regards to sales to states that have taken a very anti-gun stance, along with states that make a differentiation between what State and Local employees can purchase and own, and what citizens of those States can own.
We are joining with the many other manufacturers and retailers in supporting the true meaning of the 2nd amendment of the USA constitution, which is that citizens keep and bear arms in defense of the lived of themselves and those they love, along with their property. This defense of life and property is a defense against individuals and against government. With this stance in mind, the keeping and bearing of arms is a deterrent against a government that infringes natural rights. To be a sufficient deterrent against government citizens must have equality in the arms they bear.
The Federal Government and several states governments have enacted gun control laws that restrict the public from owning and possessing certain types of firearms or accessories. Law-enforcement agencies are typically exempt from these restrictions. RRC Firearms 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.
Thanks, both of you. You’ve been added to the New York Boycott list.
