Keep in mind this is pretty much exactly what Armalite said and people are trying to crucify them. I imagine almost all the big manufacturers will have the same policy.

Lets see how people react now

CMMG


CMMG, INC. ANNOUNCES NEW POLICY ON STATE REGULATION OF FIREARMS

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and all law abiding gun owners in our country are currently under assault. Since the horrible tragedy in Connecticut, politicians and media alike are actively demonizing and criminalizing citizens of these great United States who are exercising their rights under the Second Amendment. The emotional responses and decisions being made right now are extremely dangerous and short sighted.

As individual states elect to pass more restrictive gun laws, CMMG will adhere to each state’s regulations. However, CMMG has made a policy decision that it will not supply products to law enforcement agencies in states that have enacted legislation preventing individual citizens from owning similar firearms. CMMG will no longer provide these agencies with firearms, magazines or any other products that are restricted or no longer available to civilians. CMMG will not stand by on the sidelines and let America’s rights be stripped away. CMMG will not support states that have police departments and law enforcement agencies arming themselves with firearms and weapons that are not available to law abiding citizens. CMMG does not believe in separate classes of citizens and will not engage in sales to states that enact legislation promoting that belief.

CMMG will, however, make exceptions to police departments and law enforcement agencies that have taken a public stand refusing to recognize or enforce unconstitutional firearm restrictions. Agencies making this stand are putting their careers on the line to take a constitutional stand for all Americans as fellow citizens. Abraham Lincoln spoke on June 16, 1858, and stated that "a house divided against itself cannot stand;” CMMG supports those who support our freedom.

CMMG, as industry partners, and gun owners (including law enforcement agencies), need to stand up and stand together to counter this assault on our freedom and our constitutional rights. The Constitution is the supreme legal authority in our land, and we are bound by its words. It states in the Preamble that it was written to "form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.” The Founding Fathers agreed the best way to establish this was through the Bill of Rights which includes the Second Amendment. Let us take this stand together, unified, to continue allowing this country to be the beacon of freedom to the world.

BRAVO COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!

From their website...

Our stance on the 2nd Amendment.

"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

The founding fathers made the right to keep and bear arms second only to the freedom of speech in the Bill of Rights. Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, George Mason, Samuel Adams and so many others, labored tirelessly to create a new nation with laws free from the tyranny of the old country. A place where the government would represent the people, not repress them.

As Americans, we have the luxury of living in a developed society where we can develop ourselves through education and critical debate. We have a responsibility to question ideas and confront issues that we have a stake in as citizens of this nation, be that the rights of yourselves or the rights of others when threatened by the state. Firearms are, first and foremost, a tool to secure your life and the lives of others, against any aggressor.

The people at Bravo Company USA and BCM support responsible private individuals having access to the same tools of civilian Law Enforcement to affect the same ends. Securing and defending ourselves, our loved ones and innocent people if the situation arises.  As such Bravo Company's policy is that law enforcement officials and departments will be restricted to the same type of products available to responsible private individuals of that same city or state.

Add Lauer Custom Weaponry (DuraCoat Firearms Finishes) to the list.

From their Facebook page:

Lauer Custom Weaponry’s statement on the defense of liberty
February 22, 2013

As a result of unlawful legislation in the State of New York, LCW Manufacturing DBA Lauer Custom Weaponry will no longer arm any New York State government agency or employee thereof.

We will not assist, through the supplying of firearms and accessories, in what we believe to be the continued criminal and tyrannical takeover of the State of New York. We will apply the same attitude toward any other state that passes unlawful legislation that violates the rights and will of the people.

The subversion of the natural rights of the people must be stopped.

Manufacturers, dealers, and every citizen of this great nation must stand together in the fight for liberty. Our rights, as endowed by our Creator, are powerful yet fragile. They must be protected by vigilant citizens against the intentional destruction of them by sinister gangs of thugs. These criminals’ so-called “laws” and political schemes must be halted and prevented.

If we as citizens of this great nation are to continue to live free and prosperous, we must stand strong for the liberties and rights given to us at birth and protected by our Constitution.

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.

 



First time post.  Been lurking for quite a while.  I can't agree more with the bolded part above.  I sent an email to ArmaLite just yesterday explaining this very thing.  Now I'm extremely disappointed to see Magpul take a similar stance.  Hell....between me an a few other friends, two days ago we took delivery of 300 Pmags which were ordered back in December.   Looks like that will be my final order.  Like someone else posted....I don't really need Magpul products.  Officially done with them.

I'm really disappointed in Magpuls response. Its a very difficult situation with many variables, its one of those things that you can't make everyone happy BUT at a minimum stopping direct sales to LE in ban States is the right thing to do. I applaud Magpul fighting the draconian proposals in Colorado, BUT their position is riding the fence.

I hope Magpul is monitoring this thread because I will also no longer buy their products. I may also go so far as not ordering anything from any suppliers that carry their product. And they thought Colorado politicians was their worst enemy... they may regret the day they took their current position.

Midway is probably the biggest on that list. While Barrett, Spikes, and the like are well known they are not very big compared to Armalite, Colt, Bushmaster.

"Our company could not, in good conscience, continue to manufacture our products in a state where law-abiding citizens are prohibited from purchasing and owning them. ”
Have they and do they continue to sell and allow their distributors to sell to LEOs and departments in ban states? Yes or no. It's simple really.

ETA: Standard capacity Pmags are also banned for civilians in Denver and have been for years.
 

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 basically you are saying that if you don't sell to them they will just buy from another company and you don't want to lose the sale.

Wish I didn't just spend around $200 buying every Magpul product I could to put on my first AR along with a few hundred dollars on 35 Pmags. Won't be spending another penny on Magpul.

Magpul's response is disheartening.  I thought--perhaps to my ignorance--that Magpul never said whether they would still sell to individual .gov officials...needless to say they will.  Great products, but no friend of mine.

I am liking the language I see from the companies run by true patriots, not those that cop out and compromise in an attempt to land on both sides of the fence.

If we are not all in this together, feeling the same pain, then the cause is for nothing.  Sad that Magpul has drawn the lines that it has.

2A-Armament is on board....

http://www.facebook.com/pages/2A-Armament/229641320390038

We don't sell directly to LE, but have worked in the past on special projects. What we will not do is supply those manufacturers with augmented machining services of product, who choose to support those in BAN states. It's not much we can do, but I feel the statement of doing so is worth the effort. It is what we believe as a company.

With current regulations and laws being pushed in states such as New York and California that limit the rights of the people, 2A-Armament has decided to stand next to its brothers in the firearms manufacturing industry. Knowing that all men are created equal, it has become evident that some are more equal than others by way of regulations that usurp the very Constitution we took an oath to protect. Our name alone reflects what our company stands for.

Effective immediately, 2A-Armament will not sell its product, manufacturing time, or machine time to those States, Agencies, Departments, or individual officers who seek to strip the people of the United States of their Constitutional rights. We encourage other manufacturers to take the same course of action. 2A-armament will not provide the tools to those who wish to use them against the very people who make up these United States of America.

Huntertown Arms is on board and won't sell to LEO in banned states.



http://www.huntertownarms.com/





Your can.  Your way.  No compromise.




The owners and employees of Huntertown Arms join others in our
industry to denounce the unconscionable assault on the God-given right
to self defense.  Our Founders plainly and clearly expressed the
People's right to keep and bear arms in the United States Constitution.
Unfortunately, "Shall not be infringed" seems to be too many words for
so many to understand.




Effective immediately, we will no longer sell or service any
Huntertown Arms products to any law enforcement or governmental agency
in any state or locale that would deny those same products to
law-abiding citizens within their communities.




We look forward to the day when when this policy will be repealed.

Effective immediately, 2A-Armament will not sell its product, manufacturing time, or machine time to those States, Agencies, Departments, or individual officers who seek to strip the people of the United States of their Constitutional rights. We encourage other manufacturers to take the same course of action. 2A-armament will not provide the tools to those who wish to use them against the very people who make up these United States of America.

Your can.  Your way.  No compromise.

The owners and employees of Huntertown Arms join others in our industry to denounce the unconscionable assault on the God-given right to self defense.  Our Founders plainly and clearly expressed the People's right to keep and bear arms in the United States Constitution.  Unfortunately, "Shall not be infringed" seems to be too many words for so many to understand.

Effective immediately, we will no longer sell or service any Huntertown Arms products to any law enforcement or governmental agency in any state or locale that would deny those same products to law-abiding citizens within their communities.

We look forward to the day when when this policy will be repealed.


I didn't know you were in my AO,  now I know who I'm going to visit when it is time to make my rifle quiet

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.


Keep in mind this is pretty much exactly what Armalite said and people are trying to crucify them. I imagine almost all the big manufacturers will have the same policy.

Lets see how people react now


they can keep their shit. they fail to see the big picture.

I was saving up for Magpul furniture and sights for my newest rifle build. Not any more. I'm seriously thinking of selling my Pmags as soon as I can replace them.

They seem to be ok with that. Since if you won't buy their parts you are just going to buy them somewhere else. It sucks though. I liked them alot.  I also think Travis wouldn't have let this shit fly if he was in charge.
