York Arms
Buxton, ME --(Ammoland.com)- Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York.
We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.
As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.
For “civilian” customers residing in New York: At your choice, we will:

That wouldbe a few... Sig Sauer, Glock, Smith&Wesson. But I agree, that would be huge.

There are five companies as of yesterday…. two of which you've actually heard of.


If I had a little obscure company (well… one that I actually wanted to draw attention to) I'd do the same thing. Free advertisement.

AND ANOTHER ONE!

LaRue Tactical Issues New Sales Policy for State and Local Agencies
Earlier today, LaRue Tactical issued this press release.

NEWS RELEASE:
02/08/2013 LEANDER, TX.

Updated Policy for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:

Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.

Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.

State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.

We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Mark LaRue

Glock, Sig and S&W do not have the ball to do this...

In other news, does sig actually make a decent handgun?

HK!!!!!!!!!>Sig

I have a Sig 226 going on twenty five years. Back then they were made in West Germany and were the best handguns being produced.
I do not know about their newer productions but I have seen their 1911 and it seemed like very good quality.

I suggest we all write our favorite manufacturers and encourage them to join the new fight for freedom from these fascists . I have already begun . I start by thanking them
for bringing a good product to market , and then go on about how none of us will have a yard to play in if the libs get their way .

Glock has stated that they WILL NOT retool to make 7 rd magazines, thereby forcing the issue of a de facto ban on their products which are absolutely the most popular "common use" defensive arms in the country.

This is good . We just need them to shut down the LEO supply in N.Y. Something to be remembered . . . I don't think Glocks parent company is an american entity . ( although
they profit largely from our being a " free " market . ) They should be reminded that as this changes , so goes their market .
