    Where did I say that? The fiream issue goes deeper then what's in the patrol officers holster. I want LEOs to have the best equipment available to perform their duties. I want citizens to have the best equipment to protect themselves from criminals too.

    Are you saying the citizens do not need to have the same weapons as criminals to protect themselves?

    Its a circular arguement. Its unfortunate LEOs get caught in the middle.

  3. Yep, Larue even said that they are going to exempt the .Feds, can't let all those contracts that he doesn't have go to waste :supergrin:
  4. Why punish the citizens who are not breaking said laws?

    The police aren't being "punished", they are being held to the same standard as everyone else.

    Why are you attacking the MANUFACTURER, when your real enemies are the legislators.

    In my state all can have what they want, I would not live or work in a liberal state.

    To punish law enforcement officers because of what elected Officials propose is hypocritical and counter productive..

    The armed forces work directly for the US government will these companies stop selling to uncle sugar...shall not be infringed seems to be fuzzy when dollars signs are at stake....

    Why attack the cops on the street instead of the legislators, who are the real enemies? The firearms companies are trying to use cops as pawns, even the scumbag legislators aren't doing that..

    Knute "Nothin"

    I don't have a CCW. I don't need one. I carry under my sworn authority. My agency even restricts what plain clothes handguns I can carry. I carry off duty all of the time. I do that so I can intervene whenever the need arises. If I act, I will be doing so and acting with the authority of my job. If I do intercede off duty, there is a good chance it will be with my personally owned handgun that my department has authorized.

    I suppose that if the general public where I live wants to restrict my off duty movements and what I can and can't use, then I will probably ONLY worry about me and mine. But then again, maybe I won't. Because that is why I volunteered to be one of the guys to hold this position...

    As for the companies refusing to sell to agencies or cops, it's all fun and games until someone (cops) suffer from not having adequate equipment. Sorry, but two can play this game. They don't want to sell to cops, no matter what state they may reside, then I can do business somewhere else. I support my brothers and sisters no matter what state they work. Capitalism and consumerism works both ways.
  10. Maybe all those Police Chiefs shouldn't have stood next to the POTUS as he signed all those executive orders in front of the media. By standing behind the anti gun President, they made a political statement.

    I hope more companies follow there lead. Magpul has already announced they are moving there plant to another state as 2 more Dems signed on to the mag limit bill. It's a done deal.

    The everyday person (non LEO) deal with those same idiots. The only difference is, in the kommie states they are expected to do it unarmed.

  13. Because they are agents of the government, enforcing the laws enacted by the legislators? Legislators ALWAYS use cops/FF as know that! Anytime they want a tax increase they say if it doesn't happen, LEO/FF/EMS are first in line for cuts!

    ETA: I know the cops don't pick the rules...but ist seems to be all state .gov agencies being punished...and it's not really punishment since they can contract elsewhere. Also, some of the companies doing this are doing it to avoid's happened before. Agents order something from a website in violation of the law...if said item ships there, they go on the offensive...Remember Tommy? lol

  14. Really? In just as confronational manner? Daily? With the threat of taking away their freedom and/or livelihood?

    What makes a cop any different then a civilian??? Not trying to start anything just asking a simple question.
  16. The expectation to go into harms way every day, and sometimes have it follow you home. Where a civilian may have to deal with some of these idiots from time to time, cops are the ones expected to deal with them all of the time, mostly in a confrontational manner due to the situation.
  17. Olympic Arms?

    I'd be proud never having to carry or try to use one of their muskets.

    Because when **** is going bad, you don't call ordinary civilians to come as fast as they can to clean it up, you call the cops. Any business that would make an intentional effort to make it more difficult for these officers to equip themselves appropriately just to make a political statement is particularly deplorable, and those cheering them on are essentially happy about the idea of our cops getting ****ed.

    I get that many CCWers have made a commitment to act in the face of peril, but police officers have a legal duty to act in the face of peril. They openly put a target on their chest and stand in the fold, the least we can do is ensure they have access to the tools necessary to do so.
