    start writing you gun and ammo and accessories suppliers asking them if they support the police loophole or the 2nd admemment.
    use your $ to influence them.

    It's a good thing and I do see a few significant names on the list, but unless one or more of Glock, Sig Sauer, HK, Beretta, or S&W join in, it's probably not going to effect any changes. The day that one of those companies joins the list will be a good day!

    Uhhh, it's not a "loophole", the law was specifically written to exclude law enforcement.

    So the Loophole website says 124 companies have done this. Anyone have a ballpark on a percentage of "total" companies that is now?

    How about using the initiative process to get measures on the ballot that would eliminate exceptions and force all gun laws in the state to be applied equally to government and law enforcement.

    There's no companies on that list that would supply actual duty pistols. Not surprising. But bit by bit there are bigger names from the accessory companies that are coming in. Names like LaRue, Smith Enterprises, and Midwest Industries stick out. I'd like to see a few more companies like Novak, Trijicon, Leupold, and Aimpoint jump in. A few of those are more likely that others, but short of taking away their duty guns (which I don't support), that's where it can hurt them...

    So, if you take advantage of the tax laws to write off the interest on your house that's a "loophole" or is it just the way the law was written to allow it?

    I don't think it's going to happen with the major manufacturers. The smaller companies can afford it because they will probably gain more business by taking a stand than they will lose. May not be the same for Glock or Sig, etc.

    Magpul has joined in. That hurts the SWATs and other LEOs.

    Anaheim PD has nice ACU combat uniforms and tanks. But they'll need to scrounge on ebay for pmags with the rest of us. :)

    It's called; "Equal Protection," And some how our legislative body democalisted that up too. New word. Meaning : verb, bureaucratic socialized molestation.

    I don't say that. I say the folks on wall street write their own laws and then break their own laws.

    All the while owning their own media machine, spinning their corruption as minimal and trivial.

    But back to the topic.
    It's a good start, but it won't have any real teeth in it until a major manufacturer of guns says they won't sell to
    LE and military. And I would be awfully surprised if that happened.

    Least of all because they have a contract, and while I admit ignorance to the details, I assume that means they have to produce or face economic and possibly legal consequences

    +1 on that...also taking a contract with the gov is probably akin to signing one with the devil.

    The companies stances are admirable but I just don't think it would work. Even if all American companies refused (which wont happen)there are still foreign arms and ammo manufactures that will meet their armed needs.

    But if the UN resolution on small arms comes to be then that will stop imports of long and handguns too.
