#GunControl: Another firearms manufacturer stops sales in New York

Bit by bit, the reverse boycott of anti-Second Amendment states grows. This time, York Arms of Maine has said “You don’t like us? Well, the feeling is mutual.”

Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York.

We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.

As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

For “civilian” customers residing in New York: At your choice, we will:

  • Complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY.
  • Refund your payment in full.
  • Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

For LE/Govt customers in New York: Your orders have been cancelled

Again, I don’t know how much business York does in New York, but it’s clear the the progressive gun-grabbers are crossing a line beyond which legitimate businesses and citizens concerned about their rights say “enough is enough.”

    Good for them, but I would not be shocked to learn that York’s pre-ban NYS civilian sales well exceeded their NYS L.E. sales and that the regulatory hurdles to service those L.E. sales may well have exceeded the C/B of going forward with them.

  2. This is what happens when an egomaniacal governor like “Gloomberg” finds a group of legislators he can lead around by the nose. It will never dawn on him the error of his ways since he is a victim of his own personality. However, elections also have consequences.

    I’d be a lot more impressed if York (and every other weapons or weapons parts manufacturer) refused to sell to ANY jurisdiction that violates the Second Amendment.

    If that were to happen, the only places the cops would be able to procure weapons would be from the military or, to put it politely, from the scumbags they keep shooting because the scumbags don’t give a rusty rip about whether their stolen or ill-gotten weapons are legal or not.

    But try explaining that to anyone left of the TEA party.
