- The Gun Industry Starts Shooting Back

York Arms has joined Olympic Arms in refusing to sell any further equipment to government and law enforcement (LE) in the state of NY:

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.

The policies implemented recently by NY are unconstitutional, and I'm confident they'll be overturned... eventually. In the meantime however, I think we should all do what we can to support these companies in their effort to protect their own interests, and interests of gun owning law abiding Americans.

Here is their website:

In NJ the assembly has begun debating it's own set of blatantly unconstitutional gun bans, including one law which will allow them to suspend your constitutional rights without due process of any kind. So if you're going to buy something from the companies above, better get get to it before you have that 'fishing accident' and all your guns are lost.

I doubt that NY State's new gun laws will be overturned as unconstitutional. They will try.

I go the other way. The magazine restriction bans virtually every full sized semi-auto pistol and they have already been defined as 'common use'.
Of course - this is before Obama gets 2 SCOTUS picks.

It never stopped NJ from issuing a restriction, and NY State can argue same.

as Far as SCOTUS, MUST READ:
