Read the Freedom outpost website has a list and slowly growing:

The list of companies that have decided to stop selling firearms and ammunition to law enforcement agencies, in states that are hostile to the Second Amendment and putting forth gun control legislation, is growing and has grown more than seven times the number that I informed you about one week ago today.

Use the following two pages to contact a lot of gun manufacturers at once.
■ GRNC- Contacts SIG, S&W, and Glock. Simple cut and paste email

■ Firearms Policy Coalition- Contacts LOTS of companies. Type in your info, emails get sent.

I got that same email today
Practice doesn't make perfect, it make permanent.

When I hear a Liberal say "I can speak for gun owners because I own a shotgun" I just want to scream "Well I can speak for vegetarians because I like lettuce on my cheeseburger!"

Major company "Beretta" threatening Maryland. Let's see if this wakes up the other big names.

More at the link.

Berettas Don’t Bluff’: Major Gun Company Threatens to Leave Maryland Over New Gun Control Proposals

Beretta USA is threatening to leave Maryland over new gun control proposals, the Washington Post reports, and they would take hundreds of jobs along with them.

“Why expand in a place where the people who built the gun couldn’t buy it?” Jeffrey Reh, general counsel for Beretta, asked.

My hat is off to all of the manufacturers and retailers (like Midway) who are stepping up to the plate in order to protect the Second Amendment. I have heard that Texas and other pro-2A states are making serious offers trying to lure these manufacturers like Beretta to their state. I would not be a bit surprised if Texas does not offer some generous incentives to encourage them to make the move. More power to them.
