    Smith Enterprise, Inc.: Smith Enterprise Letter to Governor Cuomo Regarding Gun Control


    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
    NYS State Capitol Building
    Albany, NY 12224

    Ron Smith
    Smith Enterprise, Inc.
    1701 West 10th Street, Suite 14
    Tempe, Arizona 85281

    Dear Governor Cuomo,

    Over the last several decades, Smith Enterprise has sold various firearm related products to state agencies and police departments in New York. However, due to the changing political climate and anti-gun politices coming from your state, we are forced to make some changes in how we do business with your government agencies.

    It is improper for us to sell items to state agencies and law enforcement that law-abiding citizens are not allowed to purchase. Effective immediatly Smith Enterprise will no longer sell items to your state government that you have outlawed your citizens to buy.

    Until your state changes your gun control laws and ensures these laws are back in line with the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution, Smith Enterprise will be forced to keep this policy.

    At a time when crime is rampant and people are becoming more and more desperate due to the struggling economy, it is imperative that state and local governments support the people’s right to defend themselves from would-be attackers. The police have nothing to fear from law-abiding citizens with guns.

    When you change your gun laws back to something more along the lines of what our country was founded on, please let me know and we will reopen our sales in your state to government agencies.

    Sincerely,
    Ron Smith
    President
    Smith Enterprise, Inc.

    "At a time when crime is rampant and people are becoming more and more desperate...."

    Bravo to Mr. Smith, but this is a factually incorrect statement. Just take a look at FBI crime stats. Crime is not "rampant" in the vast majority of the USA. This is a statement made by libs to justify gun control measures.

    I will buy from this manufacturer in the future, not only due to their products; but due to their stand on this issue.

    Love or hate the "military industrial complex", there is little doubt Smith Enterprises benefits big time from .gov and LE sales. Ron's products sell themselves. They are top notch. A good number of my AR's sport his flash suppressors for that reason. Now apparently I have another reason to use them.

    When he could have taken the easy path and quietly dissented and continued sell to the State of NY - he didn't. He chose to do more. Ron stood up and said “Bubblegum no!” and then attached dollar signs to it. He got up on the soap box and chose us (and the principle of Freedom) at a voluntary cost to himself. I respect the hell out of that. Thank you Mr. Smith.

    I'll be placing another order from Smith Enterprises very soon. This time you can bet I'll be also including an e-mail thanking him for taking "our" side and that it won't be forgotten.

    Um sure...
    Thats quite debatable. I think I can think of a couple. Guess if you want to stick to the truest meaning of the word, then no.
    Im going to stand by my statement however, as there are a couple that are reallllllyyyyy infringing upon freedom.

    But some still think obama is full of rainbows, peace and unicorn crap..

    Mr. Smith needs to get elected to Washington DC. If only we had more people in government like him.

    Yeah right, and the democrats would never push any new anti-2A laws because it would be political suicide.

    True. Most just see it as an opportunity to make money.
