According to this blog post (hat tip, the indespensable GunWire), several other manufacturers are also cutting New York state and municipal lawmen off, making them eat the dog food they serve up for the citizen of their state:
- EFI, LLC [Extreme Firepower] does not recognize law-enforcement exemptions to local, state, and federal gun control laws. If a product that we manufacture is not legal for a private citizen to own in a jurisdiction, we will not sell that product to a law-enforcement agency in that jurisdiction.
- We [Templar Custom] cannot legally sell rifles to New Yorkers as private citizens. We will not sell arms to agents of the state of New York that hold themselves to be “more equal” than their citizens.(This is reportedly from Templar’s Facebook, which requires a Facebook login to read, so no link).
- Based on the recent legislation in New York, we [York Arms] 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.
Again, the first firm to do something like this was Barrett, when California went full
retard moonbat on .50 rifles. Ironically, Barrett now makes a smaller-caliber gun that CA hasn’t banned… yet.
Many of the firms go farther in their full statements (linked above). York, for instance, informs NY law enforcement agencies that their orders are cancelled and offers NY civilians the option of shipment to a third-state FFL, a refund, or holding their order for six months — while they move out of Cuomostan into a free state. Templar Custom says flatly that they will not sell weapons to enforcers of tyranny.
