A growing number of firearms makers, as well as companies and firms that manufacture gun parts are opting out of doing business with the police departments of “states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizen’s rights” to own guns.
The companies – including such notable weapons makers like Barrett, Olympic Arms and American Spirit Arms, as well as major suppliers like Cheaper Than Dirt – are taking a stand against municipalities that are imposing anti-Second Amendment policies on their general populations while exempting police and law enforcement from the same restrictions. What’s more, the companies are making their positions public by signing up at a website called The Police Loophole.
“There are some states, counties, cities, and municipalities in our great nation that fail to allow their citizens to fully exercise their right to keep and bear arms with restrictions such as magazine capacity or types of firearms. However, these government entities do not place these restrictions upon their own employees, such as police officers,” says the site, in describing the “police loophole.”
The loophole consists of a “list of companies that have taken the step to publicly announce that they will not sell items to states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizens rights to own them; therefore closing the ‘police loophole’ themselves,” says the site. “It is important to note that we are against gun control; we are not against any particular government agency or individuals.”
The message is clear: Abide by the Constitution
