Saw this on facebook. Kudos to Brian Schuetz. Let’s home other manufacturers do the same!
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and defender of the Constitution of the
United States, and with special attention paid to the Bill of Rights that
succinctly enumerates the security of our Divinely given Rights. One of those
Rights is that to Keep and Bear Arms.
Legislation recently passed in the State of New York outlaws the AR15 and many
other firearms, and will make it illegal for the good and free citizens of New
York to own a large selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel
as though the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the
government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of the
United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia v. Heller -
554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago - 561 U.S. 3025 of 2010, and
specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S. 174 of 1939.
Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that
the State of New York, any Law Enforcement Departments, Law Enforcement
Officers, First Responders within the State of New York, or any New York State
government entity or employee of such an entity - will no longer be served as
In short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of New
York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within
the State of New York - henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and
an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American
If the leaders of the State of New York are willing to limit the right of the
free and law abiding citizens of New York to arm themselves as they see fit
under the Rights enumerate to all citizens of the United State through the
Second Amendment, we feel as though the legislators and government entities
within the State of New York should have to abide by the same restrictions.
This action has caused a division of the people into classes: Those the
government deems valuable enough to protect with modern firearms, and those
whose lives have been deemed as having less value, and whom the government has
decided do not deserve the right to protect themselves with the same firearms.
Olympic Arms will not support such behavior or policy against any citizen of
this great nation.
Olympic Arms invites all firearms manufacturers, distributors and firearms
dealers to join us in this action to refuse to do business with the State of
New York. We must stand together, or we shall surely fall divided.
