Firearm manufacturers fire back. With passive resistance. (Updated)

18 22 25 31 BUNCHES of industry leaders have refused to deal with governments that disarm citizens. This continues the trend of division in the greater law enforcement community: those who protect the state and those who protect the people.

Originally from ThereIsNoSpoon, Athan and The Blaze, THE LIST APPEARS TO BE BEST KEPT BY SOME DUDE HERE AT NCGUNBLOG and the initiative appears to have taken on the name "New York Gun Boycott" although now it's clearly a growing multi-state thing. All are encourage to tweet hashtag #newyorkgunboycott and get this trending higher.

The NCGunBlog also has links to all these brave outfits so you can check their sites, declarations, facebook pages & etc. Awesome job.

These guys, FirearmsPolicy.org had one of the first pages up to allow you to email practically everybody in the industry.

Another initiative RefuseToSell.org trying to keep track of things and get national action happening.

So this list keeps growing...

The statements by All of these firms are encouraging to say the least. They truly deserve our patronage. Here's a few of the more direct.

Quality Arms Idaho:

Will not supply any firearm or product, manufactured by us, or any other company nor will we warranty, repair, alter, or modify any firearm owned by any State, County or Municipality who infringes on the right of its citizens to bear arms under the 2ndamendment.

J&G Sales:

Effective immediately, laws that restrict firearms, ammunition, or magazine possession by law abiding citizens will also be applied to state and local law enforcement and government agencies in that jurisdiction. All residents will be treated equally.

Barrett:

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.

Trident Armory:

Sunday night, 9pm. As of this moment, all contract bids and offers, as well as any current production contracts for any and all US government agencies and affiliates by Trident Armory are null and void.

“We will no longer participate with, or work for a government where the “rights” of the people are able to be adjusted by the whim of the government”.” I will not build guns which can be used to disarm my fellow Americans”

Take a moment to email your favourite manufacturer or dealer and encourage them to join the ranks of liberty! This isn't doing anything radical, it's NOT DOING anything to support oppression. Passive resistance=non support.

Armalite, as mentioned below has a somewhat unique position, saying they won't sell to AGENCIES in these states but they will continue to sell to INDIVIDUALS be they LEO or whomever.

Bushmaster, abandoned in hostile territory, has been vocal but so far has taken no similar position. Glock, Sig Saur, Rueger and S&W are silent.

I believe in the freedom to be what we choose to be.

It would be nice to see some

It would be nice to see some larger company names on that list. Names like Smith & Wesson, Glock, Beretta, Ruger, Remington, Sig-Sauer, Heckler & Koch, Walther, Colt, etc. Until we do it won't likely effect these cities or states.

The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men and women to not support Ron Paul!

People should all write to the NRA, GOA ect

To get them to ask their members to boycott those that don't follow suit... especially the big companies.

I would but I not a U.S citizen or anything...

Of course you won't find

Of course you won't find Glock on there. That would be half their business.

If obummer's

gun control policy includes registration, he should be impeached in short order.

I can't imagine too many votes in congress for registration and American's are not going to stand for it. Millions of gunowners would revolt via their congressman in his next election...or worse.

These gun makers have the majority support and they know it.

Only one remedy for fucks like Obama and all the rest who are

silent and complicit in taking away our rights.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

i wonder...

this really makes me wonder what larger companies have to say on this matter... Ruger, Beretta, Colt, Winchester, Remington, etc... they NEED to say something.
it's great to see these smaller companies taking a stand against tyranny, but these major companies need to be active in this. The larger companies will get the attention, and because of that, make an even bigger impact on what is going on in our country, and hopefully, wake some people up to the oppression that we are fighting against.

Why didn't the list of the four . . .

"Glock, Sig Saur, Rueger and S&W that are silent also include; Bushmaster, Colt, Winchester or Remington?
If I missed them, then my apology but, if not then, "WHY" aren't these names listed on "ThereIsNoSpoon", "Athan" and The Blaze?
I find that rather suspicious.
Also, we should all voice our opposition up to and including Boycott of the firearms/ammo Manufacturers (not on this list of 26) that are apparently to greedy or scared to stop supplying firearms and ammo to these 2nd Amendment infringing Government Agencies until they include their name to the list.

yes, but

the big companies get Military contracts...so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting on them. In fact, I bet they stay very, very quiet.

The fear of this

explains perfectly why there has been a recent purchase of a Billion Plus rounds. They don't want people cutting off their supply any time soon, do they?

bada bing!

yep!

What would the Founders do?

Just out of curiosity. I

Just out of curiosity.
I wonder how many have actually cancelled orders.

This is great

The PTB need us. We do not need them, and we have them outnumbered. If people stop cooperating, the Man loses.

GREAT idea!

I wish I had the means to set up a website where you could just fill in your information and it would get sent to all of them. That would be amazing!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

If that

was always in the main post i feel like a dope for not seeing it.

Certainly deserves front pageness, thanks for the link!

How did you get them?

Did you PM them on YouTube or did you use some other means? Cory & Erika and James Yeager have websites cuz they actually provide training services but the others don't that I know of. There is ton of other firearm channels that need to be hit and I am trying NOT to start a YouTube channel if I can get away with it (apparently you need open a channel to PM). Let me know what you did. I would like to see Hickok45, iraqveteran8888, Cory & Erika (cory07ink), Colion Noir,BigDaddyHoffman1911, BigShooterist and FPSRussia get this info and try to get it out to the firearm community. That is all I can think of at the moment. Let me know.

Yeah

Youtube PM's.

I'll go ahead and send it to them as well on youtube.
It wouldn't hurt if you would contact C&E and Yeager on their websites though!

Sounds good

I'll make it happen. Don't forget to see if you can get them to plug the Daily Paul in their video;)

It's working!

Even if this is the only one, it's worth it!

Hickok is a big one!

Probably the biggest one on the list with the exception of FPSRussia. Honestly I don't expect FPSRussia to respond so Hickok45 is good. I do expect Sturmgewehre and Nut'n Fancy have a high probability of latching on as well. And they have plenty of viewers as well.

i'm digg'in this idea

If we can get something thrown together I can try to get it out to Sturmgewehre, Hickok45, Cory and Erika and other You Tube personalities to get it broadcast. We would need comprehensive lists of what companies are already on board with the boycott and what companies need to be targeted. This could even expose DP to a little different market and potentially get us a little more traffic.

We need Freedom Group on board

Maybe we should have an "e-mail petition bomb" to get Freedom Group to join the boycott.

market share

How big is their share in the weapon market? I don't see most famous and perhaps biggest gun makers.
