The attacks on the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms by democrats are forcing firearm manufactures to rethink their policies and business plans to the point of pulling back orders from local and state law enforcement agencies. Yesterday, in a release to gun rights organizations, York Arms, based in Buxton, ME, stated that they have cancelled further orders from the New York police department.
In the release, York Arms said:
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:
- Complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY.
- Refund your payment in full.
- Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.
- For LE/Govt customers in New York: Your orders have been cancelled.
Last Friday, LaRue Tactical, based out of Leander, Tx, filed nearly an identical statement aimed at local and state law enforcement agencies that they have been forced to reconsider how they provide products to state and local agencies.
The actions by firearm manufacturers are due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across the nation.
