Reader Bob Colburn saw our post about York Firearms canceling sales to New York state agencies and LEOs and directed our attention to the efforts of John Boch at Guns Save Life to accumulate a list of contacts at some of the larger gun makers and get gun owners to contact them. The goal: persuade the bigger GunCos to follow the path taken by the Olympics and LaRue’s of the world . . .
From gunssavelife.com, reprinted with permission:
Five companies, thus far, have communicated their intention not to sell to any police or government agencies in New York State.
Guns Save Life is joining with Grass Roots North Carolina in calling for all American gun owners to pressure Sig Sauer, Smith and Wesson and Glock to shut off sales to government agencies in New York State.
If you know executives in any of these companies, email them directly. If not, we’ve got some email addresses below for you.
Keep it short and sweet. Long missives will not be read, so save your time for constructive endeavors.
Here’s a suggested message, tweaking on GRNC’s suggested message: We don’t live in a police state: If it can’t be sold to citizens, it won’t be sold to State and local government.
