I'm posting this reply from ArmaLite regarding joining LaRue, Olympic and other makers to tell NY State that oppressive legislation like SAFE will come with a cost.

I hope posting this publicly will force ArmaLite to seriously reconsider their lack of enthusiasm for standing up for gun owners rights everywhere, and not just NY State.

Their response speaks volumes, decide for yourself how committed to 2nd Amendment protections ArmaLite appears to be.





Dear concerned gun owner,


First of all I would like to say thank you for filling my email with all this spam email.

Second, I am not sure where you got this blanket email from to send out as spam, but please stop it.

Third, The manufacture is not the one you need to convince.

You need to convince the law enforcement agencies and the common people about their mistake in electing these officials and have them removed. Again NOT the manufacture.


AR Stands for ArmaLite…

Respectfully,


Pat Raley

I'm glad I don't own any ArmaLite parts or weapons.

And now I never will.

Any further evidence of this being a genuine response before we all pile on? There are typos in that and the question of join date and post count comes into play.

Not calling you a liar OP, but more evidence would make your case more compelling.

A perfect example why companies should never let people respond that are not PR trained. That bonehead lacked the foresight to understand the negative repercussions of his stupid reply. armalite will lose many customers over that email.
