What follows in my opinion and a letter to gun and ammo makers who supply anti-gun governments:
Many gun and ammo manufacturers are so in love with government money they would never think about not supplying anti-gun governments with the guns and ammo police officers need.
Well, not all of them are shills in the pocket of the anti gun community, some, like Hornady, are willing to flip the proverbial bird to anti gun governments like New York with a show of force the rest of our beloved ammo and gun manufacturers should jump to follow.
Those of you who follow suit will reap benefits for years to come, after all, us gun loving, 2A fanatics are usually willing to show support for those who have freedom in mind with their decisions. And, the gun forums I follow still strongly remember each and every time a “pro-gun” company supported the anti gunners, perceived or otherwise.
We need to do something that will hurt the anti-gun community so badly that they have no choice but to give in to us. If Hornady is willing to stand up and fight, shouldn't everyone follow? If we made it nearly impossible for them to buy the ammunition certain governments want to tax, wouldn't that help?
If Colt was unwilling to sell and service AR-15s from places like California, surely California would start paying attention. After all, they have a duty to their citizens and it cannot be done right without the proper tools. No, I don't want to put police officers in harms way, but something has to be done.
But, I digress …
Then again, Colt has a habit of only servicing government contracts, which is one of the reasons they are in the financial position they're in these days.
They need government money. And, so does Remington, Winchester, and the rest.
So while we have a potential solution on our hands, it won't go anywhere because not enough companies will stand up to refuse them product. Furthermore, there will almost definitely be those laying in the wait, like a starving cougar ready to pounce and throw it's malnourished body on whatever meat walks by … skunk, possum, or badly diseased cow, a cougar, or failing gun company, will do whatever is needed to survive.
So, those money-hungry companies will pick up any slack because they need the money or risk going out of business. Those companies in financial turmoil will assuredly bail out those unserviced governments. And, the better companies, like Hornady and Barrett, with their stellar levels of testicular fortitude will have to settle knowing they did the right thing for our Constitution and freedom.
I urge you to stand and fight, to not give in for money, and maybe even back your competition. Aren't we all one big, happy Second Amendment-loving family willing to fight for our freedoms?
For those of you who will give in, how does it make you feel to know that you will put your company and making money over We the People and the freedoms that provide you with the opportunity to make that money? If you give in and continue to sell anti-gun governments gun supplies, I hope you sleep well at night.
Sleep well knowing that I purposely went to the local gun store after my dental appointment yesterday to buy a few boxes of Hornady Critical Defense FTX .38 Special self-defense ammo, and that I'll never buy your stuff, again.
Don't stand for money, stand for freedom. Help us make it hurt these anti gun governments where it will hurt the most … stop selling them what they need in an effort to force them to come to the table. I can all but guarantee that any company who gives in or continues to service these anti-gunners will not only not get any of my money, but will have a rough go at it because I'll do my best to make your life as difficult as I can going forward.
And, if you haven't noticed, our audience is growing. I, personally, have taken a stand. Won't you join me?
