Good idea

Stop selling guns and accessories to police in states with bad gun laws. Good idea but it won’t happen. Glock sells a lot of guns to the NYPD. And Cali has a huge police force as well.

    No reason not to try. 🙂 And might be enough to sting.

    Well, my Modest Proposal is for any Gun Manufacturer who can do so should leave the States that are taking their Business taxes, yet are preventing them from selling their Products in those States. I.E., Remington, JR, Kimber, should move out as soon as they can to a Free State.

    Hey, Barrett moved to your State, Unc when Kalifornia gave them Crap.

    After all, what’s to prevent New York from going into the Plant and Arresting the Owners and Management for “engaing in the Illegal Arms Trade.”

    So I say take the Business elsewhere, and let New York pay for the Unemployment out of all the Lost Revenue.

    Where there is a market, there will be someone who will provide to that market.

    So while I agree that not selling to them would feel good and generate a lot of fist-pumping, someone would step in and fill the void in the market, and become quite rich.

    Someone German, perhaps.

    I’ve seen it said elsewhere: one of the things gun owners do best is knife traitors.

    If Glock wants to play the role of 1990’s Smith and Wesson, then I think they can suffer the same fate. S&W’s M&P does all the things a Glock pistol does, and it has a better grip angle, so it’s not like there isn’t an alternative already available.

    S&W took a long time to recover from the debacle of playing along with the administration. The historical pattern is now well set, and I’m sure that can be pointed out to stockholders as well.

    wizardpc, if there is someone that wants to step into the government-only market, good for them. I’m sure one of the first things that’ll happen is that the government will demand a new caliber so a lost gov-gun is useless without the gov-ammo. The second thing that will happen is that those gov-guns will cost $5000 apiece due to the limited runs and smaller market and finite demand. The third thing that will happen is that the gov-ammo supply will be salted with rounds where the propellant has been replaced with an equal mass of iron oxide and powdered aluminum.

    Thermite by whom and for what purpose?

    Texas has the welcome mat out for any firearms manufacturer who wants to leave NY, NJ, or even CT.

    Point of history: back when Glock USA started up in the early 80’s, the big order which got them started was 30,000 Glock 17s for NYPD. I remember this because my Sheriff wanted to switch from revos, but had to wait for all those New Yawk guns to be produced and delivered first.

    I believe that every gun-related business RIGHT NOW should stop all sales to any government entity in the State of New York. You want parts? Fuck you. You want repair work? Fuck you. You want anything at all? Fuck you. MidwayUSA, Brownell’s, S&W, Glock, ALL OF THEM. We should impose an industry-wide ban on the entire State government apparatus.

    Workinifdakids, there’s the power of those State’s dollars to overcome. That $$$ would have to be PERMANENTLY made up. That would call for us to step up our purchasing.
