By my last count seven companies have joined the fight for our 2nd Amendment in light of the recent bills passed in New York. Hopefully many others will join the fight so that the entire industry can ban together similar to what happened at the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show.

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.

List by my last count

  • LaRue Tactical
  • Olympic Arms
  • Extreme Firepower
  • Templar Custom
  • York Arms
  • CMMG

Here is a statement from Olympic Firearms

“Legislation recently passed in the State of New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of the United States

Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of such an entity – will no longer be served as customers.

Olympic Arms invites all firearms manufacturers, distributors and firearms dealers to join us in this action to refuse to do business with the State of New York. We must stand together, or we shall surely fall divided.”

LaRue’s press statement read:

“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.”

Stay informed Patriots!

Hey Fellow Gun Enthusiasts,

I just wanted to write a post on the recent experience I had with Ruger Customer Service. I contacted them even in the heat of the current climate they got back to me within a day. I had sent a small letter talking about how big of a fan I am. I own several Ruger firearms and have never been displeased. I even have a dog named Ruger. I requested that if they could send me some cool swag it would be much appreciated. I was extremely surprised when a large envelope filled with at least 50 stickers of assorted sizes/shapes/styles, and large gun posters of different makes & models showed up. Talk about neat. This will make for an awesome gun room or show room someday. It even got me motivated to send letters to other manufacturers. H&K sent me a couple H&K Stickers and so did Smith & Wesson. Remington sent me a couple hats, a keychain, and some large cartridge posters. I’m all stocked up on cool swag to display whenever I get the room. Just thought I would share,

Thank you for contacting me regarding gun control policy and gun safety. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond.

As you know, the Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees Americans the fundamental right to bear arms. I strongly support legal and safe gun ownership by law-abiding citizens and have consistently voted to uphold this constitutional right. I welcomed and supported the recent Supreme Court decision in the District of Columbia v. Heller case that made clear that the constitutional right to gun ownership is an individual one.

At the same time, we have to make sure that guns do not fall into the hands of individuals who should not have them. We should have sensible, constitutional controls on gun ownership that address safety in our communities, like preventing the mentally ill and criminals from possessing guns.

Recent tragedies, such as the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, and the horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut, have made it clear that our nation’s current gun laws should be reconsidered. Efforts to close the gun show loophole, provide for universal background checks on all guns sales, and to ensure that those with court-determined, dangerous mental health diagnoses do not get access to guns are being considered. While I want to closely study any proposal before I vote on it, I welcome these initiatives, because they represent sensible steps to keep our communities safe while respecting gun ownership rights. Importantly, legal experts believe each of these steps is consistent with the Second Amendment.

Knowing that those responsible for some of the most prominent mass shootings in recent history have suffered from mental illness, it is equally clear that we must also consider mental health services available to our citizens. A more robust mental health care system may help identify and treat individuals who need help before they resort to violence. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “Obamacare,” will substantially expand important mental health coverage when it is fully implemented in 2014. I am hopeful that efforts to repeal these vital expansions in mental health care will come to an end, while new efforts will be undertaken to expand access to care.

Importantly, I firmly believe that an attempt to promote appropriate gun safety measures can be done without infringing upon law-abiding citizens’ right to own firearms or unduly burdening the hunting and sportsmanship culture of Missouri.

You may be interested to know that, in the past, my commitment to respecting the Second Amendment has led me to vote to permit residents of the District of Columbia to own and purchase firearms and to prevent funding for any international organization, including the United Nations, that places a tax on any firearm owned by a United States citizen. I have also opposed other inappropriate measures related to gun ownership rights, such as forcing Missouri to accept other states’ firearms laws.

While the debate over appropriate gun control measures is divisive, I believe there is middle ground here. This nation can come together to support sensible laws that prevent the mass murder of innocent citizens — especially innocent children — while we continue to respect our constitution and its Second Amendment rights. Please know that, as your United States Senator, I will keep your thoughts in mind as Congress considers gun-related legislation in the months ahead.

Again, thank you for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of further assistance to you on this or any other issue.

Sincerely,

Claire McCaskill
United States Senator

P.S. If you would like more information about resources that can help Missourians, or what I am doing in the Senate on your behalf, please sign up for my email newsletter at http://mccaskill.senate.gov.

Stay active and be informed patriots!

Thank you for contacting me regarding my position on gun control and violence.

As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, the right to own a gun is very important to me. I believe that our founding fathers meant for all law-abiding citizens to have the right to bear and maintain firearms. Whether it is for hunting or marksmanship, firearms are an integral part of American sportsmanship and recreation. Furthermore, individuals should always possess, as a last recourse, the right to defend themselves and their families. For the majority of Americans, these rights are exercised responsibly every day, and it is important not to punish these people who obey the laws.

I do believe, however, that a number of other issues related to recent shootings must be aired and discussed as part of a national dialogue. We all should be involved in a broader conversation to seek ways to prevent another tragedy like the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School that took the lives of twenty children and six adults. I watched things unfold that tragic day and was moved to tears several times as I thought about my own children when they were at that age.

The American people deserve to have a comprehensive dialogue on all the underlying causes of violence, especially issues regarding mental health, before major legislative actions are taken. Unfortunately, that has yet to happen. Now is not the time for circumventing Congress with Executive Orders, conducting closed-door meetings, and recommending legislation that infringes upon our Second Amendment rights. Many pieces of legislation focusing on different aspects of gun control are likely to be introduced as the discussion continues in the media and in committee hearings. I will carefully examine any legislation that comes before me, in order to make sure that the true intention of the Second Amendment is upheld. I am committed to being a part of the real solution and am looking forward to working with my colleagues to address these issues.

Again, thank you for contacting me on this important issue. Hearing the views of all Missourians gives me the opportunity to better understand how important issues could impact the people of the 2nd Congressional District and the future interests of the nation.

For additional information regarding current legislation and my representation of the 2nd Congressional District, I invite you to visit my website at http://www.wagner.house.gov .

Sincerely,

Ann Wagner
Member of Congress

Just thought you guys would like to be aware and informed.

Ruger has a quick and painless way to contact all of your state and local representatives and it is extremely streamlined. Simply put in your information and it will pull back the list of people you are going to contact. You can pick and choose but I went with the shotgun approach and contacted everyone. I have done this several times over the course of the past couple months to keep the heat turned up in opposition for anything that goes against our 2nd Amendment Rights. Remember people ANYTHING that infringes on our 2nd Amendment is BAD for US. You give them an inch and now or later they will take a mile!!

I thought I would post about my recent experience with Fr33dm Arms based out of Beaverton, Oregon. In this current climate in-stock items of tactical gear and firearms is slim and finding a website that offers top notch customer service is almost unheard of unless you are talking about a large site like Brownells that has been in the business for a while and has the resources to staff a large customer service department. For me, I’ve always been a fan of supporting small businesses especially those that are family owned. Recently, I bought a firearm from Fr33dm Arms and had nothing but the best experience. The owner kept in touch with me all the way through the transaction, shipping and the price of the firearm was reasonable even in the current climate, and the item was shipped and received in less than a weeks time.

They don’t have a lot of stock right now but more and more shows up everyday check out their site at:

You can also follow the owner on twitter his handle is @fr33dm4us

He is an avid supporter of our 2nd amendment and his twitter feed is filled with the latest information with what is going on in this political climate.
