Given the readership of this blog, I'm sure you all know how public pensions are being pressured by their blue state masters to divest themselves of firearm manufacturers. With the way firearms sales have been going, they are only hurting themselves.
And I mentioned a few weeks ago that the firearms industry has begun shooting back. A number of companies have joined the Firearms equality movement, where they are refusing business from states and municipalities in states that are infringing upon the rights of it's citizens. Liberals will complain about this terminology because any law they like is automatically considered a good law, but there are no liberal involved so they can go hang. These companies all agree that there is infringement going on. So they are refusing sales to states and all town in CA, NJ, MA, IL, and most of all NY.
This is mostly smaller tactical and special purpose firearm builders so far. But I think it's time for us to take it one step further. I think it's time for us, the gun purchasing community, to call on the big gun manufacturers to join the movement. The big Ones are Glock, Sig Sauer, Ruger, and Smith and Wesson. And I think we should all commit to only purchasing products from the companies on this list that have made it clear that they support the constitutional rights of their customers.
At this point I would write a whole bunch of stuff explaining why a boycott would work to get them on board, but thanks to another belligerent blogger I don't have to. Sean Sorrentino at the NCGunBlog has very fluently done it all for me, and has also fielded many of the questions planted by liberal trolls who are trying to undermine the movement. Sean makes it kind of personal against Mike Bloomberg. I've met Bloomberg, so that seems perfectly OK with me.
The liberals in government are trying to use their power as investors to pressure companies into not doing something that is legal but that the liberals don't like. I think it's only reasonable that the grass roots side of this debate use it's power as consumers to not support companies that don't support us. Let's see who packs more weight.
