Olympic FireArms says they will no longer do business any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity
Barret Firearms did the same thing to Kalifornia.

It would sting a bit if the ammo companies followed suit, but I'm guessing they'd be sued if they tried it and most probably just won't.
What is to stop an agency from buying the products through a retailer that gets them from Olympic? Its a nice symbollic jesture and
yes I wish more companies would do this - especially to those cities who's mayors are trying to mess with their banking and all.

Probably a lot of what Olympic is selling to ny police depts. etc isn't going to be sold by your local gun shop or even close to the same price as buying direct, but I could be wrong on this.

DHS will just buy the weapons and ammo and transfer them to the state . It will not even slow down NY getting weapons . But good to see them take a stand.
DHS has lots of both on hand and acquiring more all the time.

I'm glad to see someone take a stand.

I have been taking a stand with my wallet against companies that spew anti-gun garbage. I refuse to be a customer anymore and have let them know why. I have not been confrontational but politely telling them why I am doing what I am. I want them to fully understand also that I am an average person. I'm only one person but if more take a stand like this then maybe we can make a difference.

I work in an office full of liberals. Today in the lunch room they were talking about how many people were pissed at the king about his comments last night on gun control. It was fun to hear that conversation. And yes, I did watch the whole thing myself.

I don't know about that, it might cause a problem with the guns their shipping to mexican cartel and the muslim brotherhood in the middle east! nobama may put his foot down over that.

Not to be the turd in the punchbowl, but I don't feel LE will take the time to be expert marksmen with that weapon, they will do just enough to be proficient. Which means the"Mexican Express Card"or any bolt action rifle is still the cheapest way to acquire one of those bad boys. And if you are really lucky you may just pick one up off the ground after the 1st or 2nd day of handing out gubment checks, cheese and singing "Kumbaya". Well they can sing all they want cause I'll be honing my brisket skills and I hope they can smell it. I may even grill garlic and onions in a pan just to really give them what for...

Olympic is privately owned. They do not have to answer to stockholders and a board of directors like others
What will the stock holders say when their stocks become worthless as the government regulates/taxes them out of business. Once the government gets the gun controls they want, do you think governments will continue to buy massive amounts of guns and ammo or will they just take control of said companies!

OMG don't give them any ideas. What a great way to control what's available - nationalize the gun manufacturers and we are screwed.

Nationalization is a possibility with all industry,if that's what you're asking. I don't think anyone will be happy with that

Socialism is the goal it is the path we are on. Obama taking control over weapon manufacturing would be an easy task for him. A few executive orders limiting the 2nd. A quick easy bill here and there next thing you know the only ones that can have weapons will be Military , LE and DHS So the next logical step if only the government can have them they must be in control of all manufacturing.
Of course prices will triple, quality will be a four letter word and orders will be a year late and double the budget.

MOLON LABE ......they are on the way

MagPul is going to pull out of Colorado if the Colorado legislature goes through with their gun control laws. They said they would not base their company in a state where the citizens could not legally buy and own the products they make. Big +1 to MagPul for stepping up and making a stand...

It seems to me if they take control of the companies, that might be the final straw. The gov't ceasing control of private enterprise????
