Default Boycott SIG, GLOCK, and Smith & Wesson!

As of this Morning, we are up to 122 manufacturers and retailers of guns and gun related products who have agreed to either boycott government agencies and employees of NY State and it's sub jurisdictions OR at a minimum have made it clear that they will ONLY sell these agencies products that are still legal for the citizens on NY to purchase.

Despite all of this commitment, the IRONY is that the vast majority of Guns used by LEO's within the State of NY are produced by SIG SAUER, GLOCK, and SMITH & WESSON.

None of these BIG 3 have raised a FINGER or risked a DIME to support American Liberty. For each of these BIG 3, Government contracts make up LESS THAN 25% of thier TOTAL SALES.

It's high time ALL 3 are told that if they don't stand with us, we don't stand with them... and see how well there shareholders like the dividends they receive when sales DROP to 25% of last quarters margins.

BOYCOTT SIG, GLOCK, and SMITH & WESSON!

Tack

Uggghhhhh reading that just sank my heart...I have a lump in my throat now. Thats really frustrating and sad. The problem is they know they have people like me cornered....I am a big supporter (and owner) of all 3 of those manufacturers as well as so many on here. I'm one of the most loyal Glock folks out there

I hope this changes. I'll have to muster up the courage to stand against them if they do not support us. If they choose to side with the powers that be (the superpowers controlling this agenda) then I will have to react accordingly.

Agreed... I too own S&W and Sig but I won't be buying any more until they see the light.

I've been watching all 3 of there Facebook Pages for week... Thousands have been encouraging them to join in the effort and I've not seen a peep in response from any of them.

2 of the 3 are not American companies. Other than pure emotion, why would any of us expect them to risk a penny to protect AMERICAN freedoms?

Bingo - we are the OVERWHELMING MAJORITY of their sales. We could basically turn them bankrupt in a month. Oh, those 600k unit backorders you are in the middle of fulfilling?

Well, we dont want em. Good luck dumping 600k units without America

One way to show them our discontent, is to cut our guns up and send them back.
That would show them we are not happy campers.
Does anyone have a better idea?
