Do you really expect a company, who's product is used by ~65% of law enforcement, to open it's mouth about it either way? No matter what they say, someone is going to get pissed and start a campaign to cost them sales. Chick-Fil-A's CEO answered a simple question about his religious beliefs involving marriage, which should have been obvious, and look at the crap that brought on the restaurants.

Glock is a foreign company and rightly, they don't have a say in our internal affairs.

It's up to We the People to stand up and contact our congressional representatives and raise hell. All it takes is an email. One from you - and you get 10 others (spouse, your family members, your friends. Then ask them to get 5-10 people to send an email, and spread the word. As you see, the numbers grow very, very quickly.

Exactly. This is also why I wish Piers Morgan would stfu and get out of our country.

This is OUR issue, not the world at large.

I see the chatter about law enforcement not wanting to be "punished" with regard to being held to these laws as well. LEO's ARE just civilians. Armed civilians but civilians just like the rest of us. It's one thing when everyday citizens can't defend themselves, its' quite another putting guys on patrol with 7 round mags or hunting rifles. Exempting LEO's removes a huge lobbying base. I'd love to see S&W refuse to sell in any State that bars citizens from owning their products...but as long as one company didn't go along, it would be moot. Glock would be happy to take all the business. Nothing against Glock. They're not an American company and have no dog in this hunt.

Lol. Glock should be involved in this. They may not be American, but they do employ Americans, and a large number of sales/profits come from America. I wish Glock would get involved.

The NRA, whose pockets are only as deep a we make them.

Btw, had an interesting conversation with my mom this weekend. She was one of the organizers for National Day of Resistance in Salt Lake City, where Montana's Senator Zincke spoke. He started S.O.F.A. Her main responsibility on Saturday was to drive the Senator everywhere since he also had an interview with the local Fox News station. He mentioned to my mom that when he started S.O.F.A. Obama sent thugs to harass him Chicago-style. Welcome to dictatorship everybody. It is imperative that we continue to stand up and stand strong.
