Yeah, this needs to become (my) preferred vendor list -- get first look before ordering anything.

I can see their thought processes for doing business with departments which support the RTKBA - we don't nec. want to drive them onto the opponents side.

I don't agree with selling LEOs private weapons, which aren't legal for civilian ownership - frankly, I'd be a bit suspect of the legality of such a policy, even if a law might state that it was OK. (A soldier, acting in a war, under orders, has special protections, etc under the law - hence why "friendly fire" deaths happen, rather than being manslaughter cases. TMK, there is no basis for a LEO having any kind of special power, other than the ability to arrest for misdemeanors/issue fines.)
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our Fortunes, & our sacred Honor

Just got an email from J&G stating that they are now on the bandwagon.

"Effective immediately, laws that restrict firearms, ammunition, or magazine possession by law abiding citizens will also be applied to state and local law enforcement and government agencies in that jurisdiction. All residents will be treated equally. Honorable citizens, law enforcement personnel, and government agents, should all be allowed to utilize the most effective defensive equipment available."

Sticky applied. Just remember it'll only show up at the top when this category is selected, not on the "View active topics" list.

STATEMENT FROM RONNIE BARRETT:

Barrett’s Position Regarding the Assault on Liberty

February 20, 2013

Barrett opposes those who are illegally disarming the American public from their efficient arms and creating superior armed elitist government agencies.

Elected state officials of New York, having been sworn to protect our Constitution, have instead committed an offense against it and their citizens by stripping inalienable rights duly protected and guaranteed under the Second Amendment. By their deliberate and sinister actions, these officials now cause their state and local policing agencies to enforce these unconstitutional and illegal so called “laws”.

By current law, Barrett cannot be an accomplice with any lawbreaker, therefore, cannot and will not service or sell to New York government agencies. Barrett also applies this stance to the individual elected official who, as a matter of public record, has voted for or created regulation that violates the constitutional rights of their citizens. This is an expansion of our 2002 ban against the California government due to their Second Amendment infringements, and shall apply to any future violators.

In the course of world history there have been officials that strip inalienable rights from the people that were given to all by our Creator. Most of these officials inevitably come to trial, some do not.

Intentionally violating constitutional rights by officials that have sworn to uphold them should have severe prison sentences.

With the clear vision of horrible events in history repeating itself, all manufacturers of firearms or related equipment remaining in partnership with such violators should have a respectable fear of being found with the guilty on their day of trial.

During this era of assault on liberty, Barrett will remain steadfast in our efforts to serve law-abiding citizens of all fifty states, and stands together with you in the struggles we will fight and win.

Ronnie Barrett
