I'd much prefer to see these companies refuse to do business with GOVERNMENTAL entities in those states which enact such laws, rather than punish all those gun owners. OTOH, what better way to chastise those folks who put those idiot politicians in office in the first place!

So, I have mixed feelings on them no longer doing business with residents of those numbnut states.

Mike,
If I'm understanding this, they aren't boycotting state just refusing to sell anything in the state that 'Average Joe on the street' isn't allowed to buy.

I was reading Gabe Suarez' forum a while back (well before Newtown), and some LEO inquired on the open forum, about purchasing a weapon that was banned in his state, through the auspices of his department. Gabe told the guy in no uncertain terms, that he would not be selling him or any other LEO anything, that an ordinary gun owner wasn't allowed to buy in his jurisdiction. I don't always agree with how he runs his business, but he's been on the right side of this issue for some time.

I was just blogging this, and went to MidwayUSA to look for a statement. I didn't find anything on their website or facebook page, so I wrote a note to Larry. Maybe someone will see it and consider it.

Whoa. Really? Cite?
And may I say, from a moral point of view, I think there can be no justification for shoving snack cakes up your action.
