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.

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

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.

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

This "reply" needs to be broadcast and spread out through the shooting community, so everyone can see where Armalite stands.

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.

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.

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.

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