    So next our government will offer the same contract and they will just give the guns to Pakistan
    I wonder if they select what police forces they sell to? Or if they sell to DHS?
    Those will definetly be used against US

    This just reinforces the fact that the citizenry has better morals than the government. Or should I say that the citizenry has morals and the government doesn't.

    Maybe a cup of coffee ? :D
    It appears that responsibility and patriotism trumps greed with them.Also slaps the anti's. In the face over their comments that manufacturers are only interested in profit. This one puts the country and troops first.

    Its awesome that a US company has the moral integrity to not sell rifles to Pakistan. Its unfortunate that the US government lacks that same integrity.....

    Thanks Taku.....I was starting to wonder if my speech has been impaired due to all the mindless conversations with these socialists pretending to be 2A supporters on the site. They've really seem to pop up again. I need a bigger hammer.

    OK I'll slow it down a little.
    This company say no to Pakistan.
    Pakistan tells the pentagon they want this company's weapons.
    The pentagon buys them and gives them to Pakistan anyway.

    Now the question that followed was about if the company was selling weapons to US entities that would be using these weapons against the citizens.
    Not selling to states like New York and others who don't support the 2A would be good too.

    I do applaud them for not selling to Pakistan,who will get weapons from someone anyway.

    sorry to confuse your little heads

    My college roommates family firearm company was offered a 40million deal with Jordan to build guns that will break down and put in packs. That was 1996. They said the red tape was huge. They just passed after long talks.

    Now if we can just get our govt to stop giving all the weapons to our future enemies and terrorist groups we may be alright.

    Just read that the terrorists invading fallujah broke into the weapons depots filled with american weapons we left behind and stole them.

    Way to go govt.
