J&G Sales


ANNOUNCING A NEW J&G POLICY ON SHIPPING RESTRICTED ITEMS

For immediate release:

As state and local jurisdictions are increasingly passing laws which infringe upon the Second Amendment of the US Constitution, J&G Sales is implementing a new policy on shipping restricted items to these states and localities.

Effective immediately, laws that restrict firearms, ammunition, or magazine possession by law abiding citizens will also be applied to state and local law enforcement and government agencies in that jurisdiction. All residents will be treated equally. Honorable citizens, law enforcement personnel, and government agents, should all be allowed to utilize the most effective defensive equipment available.

J&G believes that there should not be a difference between the rights of citizens and those of government employees. This new policy will also help us to be sure we avoid the consequences of not conforming with the anti-firearm regulations in these various jurisdictions.

We expect to lose some revenue from government purchases, however we feel it is essential to defend the US Constitution by making a statement about the importance of the Second Amendment in maintaining our freedoms.

We await 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.

Thank you

Add Barrett to the list.

I added J&G Sales and Head Down Products.

Magpul was removed so we can keep this to a specific set of requirements. IE taking a stand against selling restrictions within certain states by apply those same rules to all within the state.

Yes but not all follow the rules...

Winchester ranger SXT for one.. Some places sell it openly, some say Winchester will stop there supply for civilian sales. Load of shit yes.

Since most of their products are sold by retailers there really isn't any way for them to do this.


I'd say their full page ad in the Denver Post qualifies them as "stepping up".

They were offered an exemption from the magazine law and Magpul told the legislature to fuck off, responding with their ad.

Someone needs to contact all the ammunition manufacturers and get them in the boycott as that would hurt them more than anything because ammunition is a consumable good.

They said they wont be in a state where the citizens cannot own their product. There is no way magpul can stop their products from being sold to certain areas/people in the US


They can enforce contract restrictions if they so desired. It is similar to MAP requirements for distributors. Sell to someone we don't want you to and we take your distribution rights.

Rock River Arms. I've got a good feeling they will join the fight. The website states that they've already suspended all shipments to NY and Steve has said that they are in talks with their lawyers about the best possible actions to take. Hopefully we'll hear something good by the end of the week.

I don't know about Ruger. I could see them doing it, considering how gun ho they've been in the last three months on gun rights.

A agree most of the big boys (who, except for colt, are not big players in the AR industry anyway), won't care.

The list is for people that won't sell to LEOs and LEO agencies in ban states. Not being on the list doesn't mean a company is not pro 2ndA, it just means they don't meet the requirements for the list.

Added Bullwater Enterprises, Quality Arms, and Westfork Armory.


Apparently Alexander Arms has joined in but I cannot find anything.



BullWater:
Our small company, Bullwater Enterprises LLC dba A & T Firearms out of Sylvania, Georgia is also joining these companies in refusing to do business with any state that is trampling the constitution and Bill of Rights of their citizens. We will not sell anything to any governmental agency, their contractors or employees. We will sell all lawful items to all other citizens of those states. Andrew & Tracy Orphanoudakis.




Quality Arms:

SNIP
We at Quality Arms are against any Politician, Law enforcement official, and any other organization who feels it is there right and purpose to destroy the freedoms and liberties of the citizens of this Country.



As such we consider such acts as TREASONABLE.



Therefore

Quality Arms Idaho



Will not supply any firearm or product, manufactured by us, or any other company nor will we warranty, repair, alter, or modify any firearm owned by any State, County or Municipality who infringes on the right of its citizens to bear arms under the 2nd amendment.



WestFork Armory
All New York Government and official purchases from New York Law Enforcement agencies within that state are cancelled. All future sales will be suspended and firearm servicing is halted until your current bans further restricting law abiding citizens is lifted. This includes all sales of West Fork Armory WF-15 rifles, all magazines, optics, night vision, thermal optics, ammunition, or anything else we sale or manufacture for that matter. California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Hawaii and Maryland you’re already on the list, and Colorado will be soon on the list. We suggest all other manufacturers and dealers do the same. Let this be heard and spread the word.

Magpul cutting off sales to states with poor laws would make an even bigger dent than a rifle boycott. Rifles are but mere clubs unless they have ammo and mags. And the magpul pmags are definitely becoming the "industry standard" for reliability.
Link Posted: 2/21/2013 11:44:51 AM EST
I refuse to buy from any company not on this list.. I'm about ready to start contacting manufacturers that I like and telling them straight up that they need to take our side and stop doing business with any state government that is trying to take away 2A rights. Otherwise I am done with them and will tell everyone I know they are against us. They need to realize they can't suck off the gov. tit forever. WE are their largest customer base. Support us or you WILL eventually go bankrupt.

You might want to church it up a bit instead of just copypasta that post. If you approach them with grace and tact then we have a much greater chance of winning them over than if we sound abrasive.

The answer is yes, our Distributors are allowed to sell to LEOs in ban states. Our founder has also said regarding LEO restrictions, "We have not considered such a move as we are not convinced that this tactic will have any effect on those in power (they will just buy Israeli or some other generic parts). It also adversely punishes street cops, local sheriffs and individual military members for the actions of those in power. The last thing we want to do is hurt those who support our cause."

So, we see that we can support Law Enforcement and Military members while standing up for our convictions and will continue to do everything in our power to protect our inherent rights.


Just read the quote and am a little confused does this mean you will be selling LEO and Mil. in ban states the same capacity magazines as it's non-LEO and non-Mil or will they be able to purchase different capacity mags than non-LEO and non-Mil?

It's not about punishing anybody. It's about making them follow the same rules we have to. Also keep in mind this would only apply to ban states. We have no problem with unrestricted sales to free states, the federal government and the military (assuming no more restrictions are enacted). Also let's face it, these officers will be the same ones arresting the common man for having an item that they themselves are allowed to have.

Those that enforce unconstitutional laws do not need your support. If you give them yours I am afraid you no longer have mine. The fact that you would sell your product to those that would arrest otherwise law abiding people for possessing your product is disappointing in the extreme. Please reconsider.
