New Jersey – -(Ammoland.com)- The newly emerged Firearms Equality Movement is gaining more steam among manufactures and gun rights supporters alike.

The firearms industry, in reaction to the Governor of New York ramming through the NY SAFE Act which banned AR15 style rifles, has seen multiple manufactures revise their firearms sales polices to restrict LEO and Police Agencies from only buying the same level of firepower as is allowed for the average citizen of their state.

Thereby helping to make the citizens equal to police and law enforcement agencies with in the same state, and, in some part, making rouge politicians accountable for their actions trying to disarm the people.

It is important to note that the Movement is not asking industry to join a “conspiracy” but only to make their own sales policies support the right of the individual to keep and bear the same arms as all other classes of people in their respective states. The Firearms Movement is just that, a movement and not collusion, as some have suggested. In the end each and every company is free to do business as they wish.

The List of Manufactures as complied by NC Gun Blog has continued to grow and at last count (2-27-2013)  included the following.

  • Wilson Tactical 2-28-13

As of yet we have not seen the big four manufactures, Glock, Sig Saur, Smith & Wesson and Ruger, that supply the majority of police contracts, make the same policy changes. We understand they are beholden to their stock holders, but I am still hopeful that they will move to support their biggest customer of all, the American people.

I want to let hem know that I will buy all I can from any company that protects my rights, to help make up for any loss of sale they may experience by limiting police sales.

It is great to see manufactures banding together to protect the rights of their customers and hold politicians accountable for their acts disarming the American public.

As this movement evolves I would like to see this become an unsaid blanket policy that applies to all states, especially New York, New Jersey, Maryland, California and anywhere else where honest law abiding citizens need the right to keep and bear arms of equal fire power as the state the live in.

Dear manufacturers,

Thank you VERY much for your support of the 2nd Amendment. I am heart felt by the article on Mr. Conservative ‘s website AND this blog. I fully back your statements and decisions.

I am saddened that my beloved Sturm, Ruger & Company along with Savage Arms and Glock have not followed suit with similar policy changes. I was about to buy a Ruger Scout rifle but will no longer be doing so.

Currently trapped in Communist California.
