Our friends at GunUp — who now sell firearms, btw — have joined the growing list of companies who won’t do business with LEOs or other gummint agencies in states that restrict their citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. That makes number 72 on our hit parade, but it looks like we’re way behind the folks at who seem to have the authoritative list. GunUp’s email blast on the subject after the jump . . .

Due to the large number of anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment initiatives that have been passed or proposed in states like New York and Colorado, GunUp will apply all state and federal laws (as applied to civilians) to all state and local government agencies and officers. To put it simply, we will limit all sales of firearms and magazines to only what law abiding citizens may possess in their state, county, or city.

“GunUp believes that all citizens should have the same rights under the Second Amendment,” said Vice President Caleb Giddings. “Unfortunately, some politicians don’t agree, and as such we will not sell firearms, magazines, or accessories to any LE agency or officer in states where those items are prohibited to law abiding citizens.”

GunUp will continue to support law abiding citizens in ban states to the best of our ability, and will continue to offer fair prices on guns and gear to those citizens.

  1. I have posed the question to Taurus and Ruger this week. No response, and I didn’t expect one, but if enough ask they might feel compelled to respond.

  2. There has been a lot of talk about trying to get the big boys like Glock, Sig, and S&W on this list. I’ve been wondering though, would it even be possible for a publicly owned company like S&W to refuse a major contract? Even if management wanted to, the shareholders would never allow it.

    • Sure they would, if S&W would make more money in total. If a general public boycott (as they have experienced before) would cost them more money than suspending LE sales, then both shareholders and management should want the company to ban the LE sales.

      • Unfortunately, institutional shareholders tend be very short sighted. LE contract = guaranteed money now.

        • Well, in a market where everyhing you produce is flying off the shelves regardless, is there a material difference?
