    The list of manufacturers of guns who are refusing to sell to government agencies in states that are restricting gun sales to citizens is growing. … s-equality

        Agreed.  Even though govt gets its money from the people, the people still have some small amount of control over the purse strings and this is one way to tighten that control just a little.

        When the power of govt is used for unnecessary control, to moderate people for no more reason than some people like to control others, it's far past time to so "No". 

        It may do no more good than the occupy movement, but it is a start.  Take government back.

      All the gov't have to do is yank their business licenses. I'm sure they'll come up with an excuse to do so.

        States license businesses.  Yanking a business license could only affect the businesses in that state - which would encourage a business to relocate to a firearms manufacturing friendly state such as Oklahoma.  Yanking a federal firearms manufacturing license would require some legal cause to do so and, until Democrat regain control of the House, it is not illegal to refuse to sell to individual state or city  agencies, eg, the NYC Police Department.

      Will pop-tart and toaster pastries soon refuse to sell to schools that ban "pop-tart guns?"  What will the one and only finger manufacturer do with schools that ban finger guns?   The old Chinese curse is, "May you live in interesting times."  It is not, "May you live in absurd times with crazy people running every conceivable government agency"

    Mind you, looking at the list of companies refusing to supply, I see a lot of empty gestures, none appear to be the type of company that would be the first (or even second) port of call for any government dept wanting to buy arms.

    I wonder how many companies would have signed up to the list if a substantial part of their business was in supplying arms to government departments?

      ...even gestures standing on principle make a difference...gotta start somewhere to wake up the people to a greater reality of correct thinking and feeling about who they are and how they fit into society as a whole...
      it amazes me to look at those, such as the big ammunition companies, and the like, that aren't even looking down the road at what is going to happen if they just keep focused on their bottom line instead of their stand in society...the people will win, over big companies and government, because ultimately it is the people that fuel them. When the people say "thus far and no farther" big companies and government will come to a stand still

    They can sell to whoever the want, and the government can buy from whoever they want. They have plenty of options with equivalent products,

      Apparently the list of options is shrinking - the ultimate grand irony will be when governments in the United States have to purchase their firearms from China.
