Number of gun companies refusing to sell to gov’t entities restricting gun rights triples in just two weeks

When Brent Daggett originally reported on firearm companies refusing to sell their products to government entities enforcing what they see as gun control laws that endanger our Second Amendment right to bear arms for End the Lie, the number of companies was quite small.

That has radically changed recently with the number tripling in just two weeks. Now some 124 companies have joined the fight against restrictive gun laws according the Police Loophole, a website established to track “companies that have taken the step to publicly announce that they will not sell items to states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.”

The number continues to rise and according to Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. of CNS News, “In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the ‘Firearms Equality Movement,’ has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.”

The number has now swelled to 124, although it is unclear where Gwyn-Williams, Jr. obtained the 118 number for his March 9 report since it should have been 123 on March 9, according to the Police Loophole’s dates.

Barrett summed up the movement well in writing, “Barrett opposes those who are illegally disarming the American public from their efficient arms and creating superior armed elitist government agencies.”

The most recent company to join the fray, C. and H. Arms, revealed their decision in a Facebook post.

“Even though we love to support our nations law enforcement agencies,” C. and H. Arms wrote, “We will not sell any item to any agency that restricts said item to its civilians.”

Wilson Combat announced their policy, which applies to California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago, Illinois on February 28.

“Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens,” wrote Ryan Wilson, Vice President of Wilson Combat.

“This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity,” Wilson continued. “This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.”

However, Wilson made it clear that they will continue to sell firearms to any citizen not affiliated with the government, so long as they can legally do so.

“Wilson Combat will in NO way support the government of these states or their anti-gun agenda that only limits the rights of law-abiding citizens. Wilson Combat will continue to supply any product and/or service they can legally sell in these states to all non-government affiliated citizens,” Wilson concluded.

For those who are not aware, the police loophole is the practice of some states, counties, cities and municipalities in the United States that restricts their citizens’ ability to “fully exercise their right to keep and bear arms with restrictions such as magazine capacity or types of firearms,” according to the Police Loophole.

“However, these government entities do not place these restrictions upon their own employees, such as police officers,” thus clearly creating a loophole.

It seems that the Firearms Equality Movement, based on closing this loophole and further discouraging gun control legislation is not going to slow down any time soon. It will be interesting to see how governments respond to this increasingly numerically powerful movement.

      Agreed. Both ammo and firearm manufacturers should also extend these practices to police state cities like NYC, LA, Seatle and many more who have cameras and other tech and are now buying “pre-crime prediction” software. This country is falling apart and we are the target of a growing communist-like government. It’s going to get worse. Also, take a look at all the questions being raised about the Sandy Hook incident. There are some very strange things that don’t add-up about it and even some police are speaking up about the anomalies. There are also some idiots that think they have found anomalies but there are some real concerns too. The next step in finalizing a tyrannical regime is to disarm the public. That step is now in full swing. Think about what Obama has already done in plain view. Disarming us is a priority and the best way is to sway public opinion using a false flag event and actors to play the part.

      I am hoping the firearm and ammo companies will support the public in the coming times. They could be instrumental in saving us from this government. Aside from militias, which are now under full alert and are performing battle excercises, there is an organization called Oath Keepers ( http://oathkeepers.org/oath/ ) that consists of active and retired duty cops, active duty and retired military, firemen, veterans of all services and anyone who has sworn an oath to protect the constitution. They have opened their membership to anyone who will support them. They may be our first line of defense against full blown tyranny. DON’T LET THEM HAVE YOUR GUNS OR WE WILL BE SCREWED!

    Yes…the government has the capabilities to purchase way to much ammo….leaving little to none for the average citizen to purchase…that is an issue that really needs to be remedied somehow. at least make the playing field even…..though hough I dont see much happening there as its much to late.

    Since our tyrannical government is purchasing that ammo with our tax dollars, we need to introduce legislation that puts a stop to it. We also need to pass legislation ordering the government’s stockpile of assault weapons and ammunition to be confiscated since it’s legally OURS.
    Kudos to these manufacturers who clearly know the right path in dealing with the overgrown bureaucracy. Civilian purchasing of firearms is their largest customer base, granted… but it’s still the right thing to do and they need to be praised for standing up for what’s right. Thank you, fellow patriots for stepping up to put this illegitimate, communist government in its place–disarmed!
