Barrett Firearms Will Not Sell or Service Firearms for Law Enforcement in New York

Barrett Firearms is joining the growing list of gun companies who are refusing to do any business with New York, including law enforcement agencies in the state.
Barrett has had a similar policy in place for California since they banned Barrett’s .50 caliber rifles.
Here is Ronnie Barrett’s open letter to New York State.
Barrett opposes those who are illegally disarming the American public from their efficient arms and creating superior armed elitist government agencies.
Elected state officials of New York, having been sworn to protect our Constitution, have instead committed an offense against it and their citizens by stripping inalienable rights duly protected and guaranteed under the Second Amendment. By their deliberate and sinister actions, these officials now cause their state and local policing agencies to enforce these unconstitutional and illegal so called “laws.”
By current law, Barrett cannot be an accomplice with any lawbreaker, therefore, cannot and will not service or sell to New York government agencies. Barrett also applies this stance to the individual elected official who, as a matter of public record, has voted for or created regulation that violates the constitutional rights of their citizens. This is an expansion of our 2002 ban against the California government due to their Second Amendment infringements, and shall apply to any future violators.
In the course of world history there have been officials that strip inalienable rights from the people that were given to all by our Creator. Most of these officials inevitably come to trial, some do not.
Intentionally violating constitutional rights by officials that have sworn to uphold them should have severe prison sentences.
With the clear vision of horrible events in history repeating itself, all manufacturers of firearms or related equipment remaining in partnership with such violators should have a respectable fear of being found with the guilty on their day of trial.
During this era of assault on liberty, Barrett will remain steadfast in our efforts to serve law-abiding citizens of all fifty states, and stands together with you in the struggles we will fight and win.

It's a shame none of the Big Guys (Smith, Sig, Glock) are supporting this movement.

Agreed, David. CMMG just came on board.

I guess the "Big Guys" think they can sell more to the cops than us peons? Perhaps they don't want to be politically active and piss off their Liberal market?

If they don't step up they're not going to have anyone to sell to. I would think that law enforcement is a small part of their business.

I liked it a week or so ago when Cheaper than Dirt tried to get back on the good side of their customers, after ripping them off, by getting on board.

Midway came out right away and let everyone know that it has always been their policy not to sell to LE in areas where us regular people can't buy the same products. :)

We'll see...

David P. ... obama knows that federal gun control legislation is going nowhere.

His administration has been pressuring states to put their own restrictive laws in place. Even here, there are proposals for registration and restriction attached to an education bill going through the house right now.

These asswipes are only making targets of themselves for what's coming down the road...
