Wilson Combat Joins Over 100 Companies Boycotting Law Enforcement Sales

This article, which is from guns.com , is a sign of the growing anger over attempts to infringe on the Second Amendment Rights of Americans. It is good to see the manufacturers of guns, ammunition and supplies standing up to the gun grabbers. If the State or municipality approves of restricting gun ownership, these companies are saying they won’t sell their products to them, even to law enforcement. My hat goes off to them. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

Wilson Combat, famous manufacturer of premium 1911 pistols and AR-15 rifles, had put themselves on the ever-growing list of manufacturers who are making it a matter of policy to not supply law enforcement in states with prohibitive gun control.

Simply put, if your people don’t have access to the guns they want, neither can your police.

“Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the Second Amendment rights of its law-abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.

“States currently included in our No-Sale Policy are: California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago, Illinois.

“Wilson Combat will in no way support the government of these states or their anti-gun agenda that only limits the rights of law-abiding citizens. Wilson Combat will continue to supply any product and/or service they can legally sell in these states to all non-government affiliated citizens.”

These types of policies are getting to be as popular with manufacturers as they are with the buying public, with the New York Boycott Tracker now listing 110 companies that refuse to sell to law enforcement (at the time of writing this).

While many of the companies are smaller, Wilson Combat is up there with LaRue Tactical, Spike’s Tactical, Barrett, Bravo Company USA, Primary Weapon Systems, Midway USA, CMMG, Volquartsen Custom and several more other big names in the industry that have halted sales to police departments and other agencies in New York and in most cases, other states as well.

This is a direct response to gun control measures enacted recently as well as in the past, as all of these places have had long histories of strong gun control laws.

Still, we have yet to see any of the major manufacturers enact similar policies, such as Glock, FNH USA, Smith & Wesson, Springfield or any other primary service rifle or pistol manufacturers.

ArmaLite is up there and does quite a bit of law enforcement sales, and while it is their policy not to sell to departments in geographies that have severe anti-gun legislation, their announcement that they do sell to individual officers — cops buying service rifles with their own money — caused a recent stir.

Gun owners will no doubt reward Wilson Combat for enacting this policy, in particular because of how wide-reaching and comprehensive it is. We’re pretty sure Wilson Combat isn’t losing a lot of money to the Honolulu P.D. with it, and they’ll more than make up for it with sales to the public.

    They will ow have to include Colorado on their list. The Dems have passed every UNCONSTITUTIONAL BILLS that have been put in front of them and as always the pro gun side was pretty much left out of the discussions especially our SHERIFFS. We need more help, you help our state then we will help yours when they start there.

    I wish we could reach the ammo manufactures to do the same, in fact I would hope that they would sell to we the people first and let the govt. stand in the back of the line for once. Lots of rifles coming back, but still desperately shot of ammo.At least to those that woke up late. I will share mine if the need arises.

    Remember that Keeping the Oath of Office is a requirement of that office. Going to list the Federal laws that apply to Oaths of Office – mostly federal. Look them up, they should also apply to three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees are required to take an Oath to support and defend the Constitution and NOT an individual leader, ruler, office, or entity. Once given, the Oath is binding for life, unless renounced, refused, and abjured. It does not cease upon the occasions of leaving office or of discharge:

    Federal law regulating oath of office by government officials is divided into four parts along with an executive order that further defines the law for purposes of enforcement.

    5 U.S.C. 3331, provides the text of the actual oath of office members of Congress are required to take before assuming office.

    5 U.S.C. 3333 requires members of Congress sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office as defined by the third part of the law,

    5 U.S.C. 7311 which explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense for anyone employed in the United States Government to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”.

    18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath of office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

    The definition of “advocate” is further specified in Executive Order 10450 which for the purposes of enforcement supplements 5 U.S.C. 7311.

    Executive Order 10450 provision specifies it is a violation of 5 U.S.C. 7311 for any person taking the oath of office to advocate “the alteration … of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.”

    Our form of government is defined by the Constitution of the United States; and according to Executive Order 10450 plus 5 U.S. 7311 any act taken by government officials who have taken the oath of office prescribed by 5 U.S.C. 3331 which alters the form of government other then by amendment, is a criminal violation of the 5 U.S.C. 7311.

    In order to assert our rights, acknowledge our duties, and proclaim the principles upon which our government is founded, we declare:
