Loving it!!http://cnsnews.com/node/642462"According to The Police Loophole, 34 companies have joined in publicly stating that governments who seek to restrict 2nd Amendment rights will themselves be restricted from purchasing the items they seek to limit or ban."
These are distributors. I read about this a week agohttp://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/constitution/item/14505...but most of this noise is coming from distributors, not manufacturers.
It's just noise anyway. They are standing on principle when it doesn't really cost them anything.I looked up the police Depts of LA, San Fran, New York City, and Chicago. None of them get their service weapons from these companies. Just for grins, I also looked up some law enforcement agencies in places that these companies would approve of selling their products. The Highway Patrol of these states: Texas, Alaska, Utah, Idaho, and Louisiana don't use weapons from these companies.
And if/when China or India decides to manufacture quality guns acceptable to the law forces in certain U.S.states, you can bet these same American gun manufacturers are going to howl "unfair!"I happen to know an immensely wealthy Chinese businessman ( just one of his huge factories manufactures air plane parts in China and sells all over the world) and he mentioned that Chinese entrepreneurs watch carefully when American companies "complain" because that gives the Chinese an indication of where competition might prosper...I very much hope that gun dealers and distributors go the way of buggy whip sales people.
So I guess there's more to that free market crap than profits? There really are other concerns? But we knew that all alongBut of course as someone else has said, right now it's cheap. When using their business AS A WEAPON against people they don't like cuts into the real money... then morals become malleable
"When using their business AS A WEAPON against people they don't like "ROTFLOL What ridiculous assertion.
