    Oh my! This rocks! New York and California can go fly a kite!


    NEWS RELEASE:
    02/08/2012 LEANDER, TX.

    Updated Policy for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:

    Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.

    Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.

    State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.

    We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm's sales - and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.

    Thanks in advance for your understanding.

    It'd be nice if ALL the arms and accessories manufacturers did this.. dry up the government's supply too.

    When .50 calibers became illegal for Californian civilians to own, Ronnie Barrett suspended sales of .50 caliber rifles to all California law enforcement. I think more manufacturers should follow suit.

    I wasn't planning on buying anything in the near future...

    After reading this letter though, I seem to remember a few fine LaRue Products that need ordering... by me... tonight.


    Money talks. Support the companies that support your rights.

    Too bad they aren't doing this to federal agencies too. Well, at least it's a step in the right direction.

    Went ahead and ordered up that mount just like I said I would. Put a little typed note in the special instructions field about why I ordered it. I never have used any of their products.
