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.

Not like it is the CEO...signed sales rep...but fuck him anyhow.

Kind of a lackluster response :/

I must say I have doubts on how legit this is.

Well, if they're selling guns to ban state governments then I ain't buying from them.

Fill his mailbox.

Other posters are right. We need to be sure before we act.

And fuck them anyway for the part in red.

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.

Damn, talk about missing the fucking point.
Link Posted: 2/18/2013 8:43:56 AM EDT
So how many times did you send the same email?
Link Posted: 2/18/2013 8:44:20 AM EDT
Seems clear that spam email is more important to "Pat" than the 2nd Amendment.

Sounds like a liberal duche to boot...

Wow. If true, no more Armalite for me. I have one of their lowers
and they WERE my lower of choice.

What an asshole.

This "reply" needs to be broadcast and spread out through the shooting community, so everyone can see where Armalite stands.
Link Posted: 2/18/2013 8:44:57 AM EDT

Kind of a bullshit response.

While I'm not going to sell my AR-10, when this is all over, I'll remember who stood up for us.


I definitely will.

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.

What does our resident Armalite lover have to say about this bullshit?
Link Posted: 2/18/2013 8:46:38 AM EDT
OP can we see what was sent in your email to him? I'm willing to join the dog pile if need be, but I want to make sure it's for a good reason before I send angry emails and boycott a company.

Curious as to what the actual leadership of Armalite says as opposed to a sales rep.

I have a hard time believing a site sponsor would take this stance, or at least officially respond to it in this way.

Let's all freak out about something with no hard evidence of anything supposedly from "some guy" working at Armalite.

DURR.

How many of you start drinking in the morning, then start posting here the rest of the day, railing on this or that at the slightest provocation?

If legit not replying to the email would have been a MUCH smarter move.
Dick head reply from a manufacturer is shitty.



ETA send him a link to this and let him watch how it unfolds.
Link Posted: 2/18/2013 8:49:11 AM EDT
I would like to see the letter that was sent, to which the reply was given.

Sweet. Time to mosey on over to the ArmaLite section and watch the fun begin.

Reply from a pissed off sales rep will most likely not be the final word here.

If this is real, then they have some explaining to do. Not going to jump on the hate train until I'm sure though.
