    Up to 7 manufacturers and distributors refusing to sell banned product to NY State LEO's.

    The old addage of "Good for the Goose, Good for the Gander" is taking off in the Empire State in response to the recently passed NY "anthing but" Safe Act.

    FTF'rs should write all these companies and thank them for their support...or better yet... place an ORDER! ;)

    Tack

    Great news! But quick question for clarity...You said NY in your title and Garden state in the post...Do you mean NY or NJ? NY is the Empire State (Kinda fitting... lol)

    It is hard for us PNW guys to keep all those East Coast Gun Grabing Ass Hats straight...:eek:

    It's quite alright. I don't know all the nicknames myself, I just happen to live in NY lol.

    My biggest beef is when people say "New York" when they are really referring to New York CITY, or when people from NYC call me "upstater"....it really gets me miffed...

    They are so egotistical and self-absored that they think they are the only thing of any worth in NY when they are only 15% of the landmass :mad:

    Does anyone know of the original 7 have been joined by others?

    I'm watching SIG, S&W, and GLOCK Facebook Pagers and tons of people are encouraging all 3 companies to sign to the NY Boycott but no response from the companies.

    I think we all need to put any purchases from these three on hold until they weigh in on the issue.

    Armalite seem to have a convoluted response on this.

    "they don't sell to anti gun jurisdiction but they do sell directly to LEO's within those jurisdiction"??? :confused:

    Sound to me like like our buddies at Armalite are tying to have it both ways and can do without our business!

    Excellent... BUT to make an impact we must get SIG, GLOCK, and S&W on board as they are the primary sellers to NY Law Enforcement.

    This link provided by Opaw has email and phone numbers for all 3.

    I encourage all FTF members to contact these companies and politely request they join the NY boycot and do NOT sell anything to NY LEO's that law abiding citizens can no longer buy.

    Tack

    Boycott SIG, S&W, and GLOCK!

    I keep checking the Facebook pages of Sig, S&W, and GLOCK... the comments sections are at least 70% of people publicaly asking them to get onboard so I'm sure they are hearing them message.

    At this point I would encourage anyone with a product from any of these 3 on backorder to CANCEL it.

    Those old enough to remember the Clinton HUD agreement that only "then British owned" S&W was foolish enough to sign led to all distributors immediately dropping S&W orders. The company was on the skids within 6 months and was ultimately sold to Saf T Lock out of Texas.

    Bush's AG, John Ashcroft's first act was to "null and void" the HUD agreement saving this company.

    I would think current S&W management would understand how thier firm came back into American hands and be leading the charge on this?

    Guess some folks are slow learners.
