Olympic Arms, Inc. Announces New York State Sales Policy

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repealed, and an apology made to the good people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.

I'll be interested to see how this thing pans out. I like it.

Hope I remember this right:

Larue Tactical won't sell NY agencies anything they can't sell to NY civilians.
Magpul told CO if it passed magazine restrictions it would pull production out of the state. 1000 jobs (between them and subcontractors) and who knows how much tax gone.
Suarez International has refused to sell to LE in NY and certain other states, I think IL and CA, for at least four, five years now.
We have Barrett stopping sales to CA agencies a while back as well.

Hope it gets more interesting this way.

It's about time these manufactures get in the game.  I wonder how the following states would react if the firearms companies were to leave.
          New York    Remington
          Mass.          Kahr and S &W
          Conn.          Colt
          New Jersy    Henry

How many thousands in tax revenue and how many lost jobs if they were to leave??

I think that's mostly right CR. My understanding is that LaRue & SI limit the sales to LE and Government to the same items as are legal for regular citizens in their jurisdictions.

Magpul has invites from all over the place to bring those nice skilled jobs into their States, only Boulder/Denver liberals (and their close cousins in CA) would try to pass a bill that is:
a. Ineffective at stopping crime.
b. Harms normal citizens.
c. Would cost jobs and balance of trade on the State.

As Homer Simpson would say, "Doh!"  :o
