On another note we should also look at remington, mossberg, savage, colt, winchester, and quite a few others. The have not signed on either, and not all these are under contract with state governments to supply them with their product.

No, remington did not sign on to support the rights of gun owners, their issue is if NY. passes the micro-stamping they will leave NY. This is due to cost of micro-stamping and not about gun rights issues.
Once again Opaww you have proven to be smart and practical. There are many other companies that supply LEO and other government agencies, and they haven't even been talked about.

We need to tread lightly here, steam rolling in an environment as delicate as this can hurt us as much as help us.

LEO's... on the other hand are not being asked to storm a beach head or attack Faluja. The threats they face on the streets are no worse than what the Citizen encounters... so... forcing Law Enforcement... through "selective boycotts" of the firms contracting with them... to live by the same rules being forced upon us... IS FAIR GAME.

...and I've not worn Levi's since 1987...

Just remember those self same troops your wanting to arm with stuff you cant have are going to be the arms that will be pointed at you when your digging out the trenches needed to dump your body in when the national socialists get their ban...

Bingo...

Applying pressure to get a result is sort of like bringing an opponent to there knees by use of "pressure points". Sure... there are many areas of the body that will hurt if struck but the "pressure point" is more effective due to the amount of pain caused by "concentration of FORCE" to a SPECIFIC area.

It also comes with the benefit of doing NO long term damage. None of us wish to cripple, or destroy a gun company, HELL, we love these guys... but we must FORCE the holders of NY State contracts to either side with us... or try to please there shareholders on 25% of last quarters sales figures.

If only there were a way to get thousands or tens of thousands together, and going at this strategically. You know, one company at a time.

There is... and were doing it.

Most of us here belong to SEVERAL blogs... I believe FTF alone is north of 50k members.

It's great to agree or "like" this thread but it's even better to copy it into every other blog discussion you participate in, share it on your Facebook page, and e-mail it to all of the like minded people in your contracts list.

Anyone on Planet Earth who Googles the word "boycott +" any of these three gets a link to this thread.

No, the national firearms act was to keep black people from owning firearms.

Remember the civil war ended less than 60 years previously and by the twenties more and more blacks were becoming a factor in politics. Democrats didnt like the idea of blacks being armed and the original intent was to disarm everyone.

The compromise was only full autos short longarms etc. The gangsters being the reason is a modern fiction put out there by the left to cover up their long history of racism and racism being the root of gun control.

The 200$ tax was to prevent poor black people from buying guns

Bingo...

And the even UGLIER truth is that the "welfare check" in exchange for the "vote" has replaced the "3 hots and a cot" in exchange for "picking cotton" as the new form of Black Slavery in America.

I suppose it's more humane... but it really does not look all that different to me.

In my mind from here in the communist republic of new York I ask myself why the Leo's here in new York need those so called nasty ar style rifles to protect themselves from criminals but I can't have the same to protect me and my family...doesn't make sence to me. The criminals use the same tools against people as they do Leo's. I don't need grenade launcher but see no reason why I can't have an ar or ak. I don't own any of these three manufactures weapons and never will unless they change my mind in a big way.

Jon, there aren't going to be any government arms pointed at me or you. Our troops are not going to try to disarm you., Neither are our police. The national socialists are not going to take over.

Whether or not some of you are willing to admit it, we are still a nation of laws, and we are going to continue to have free elections.

This "revolutionary" nonsense serves no purpose but to make all of us look foolish in the eyes or the public.

Radical nonsense does a severe disservice to our cause.
