LaRue Tactical Announces They Will No Longer Sell To Government & Law Enforcement
(Hat tip Don B. for the forward. Thank You Don!)
LaRue Tactical has made an announcement (via Facebook) that they will no longer sell standard rifles to law enforcement and government agencies in states that limit the features of civilian rifles. That means if a state prohibits pistol grips and flash hiders, LaRue will no longer sell rifles with those features to the government in that state.
Too bad the lawmakers in those states have deprived their law enforcement officers from using one of the best production AR rifles on the planet.
Bravo LaRue, Bravo.
Here’s the announcement LaRue made through Facebook: “NEWS RELEASE:
02/08/2012 LEANDER, TX.
Updated Policy for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:
Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.
Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.
State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.
We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
