WhenÂ Brent DaggettÂ originally reported onÂ firearm companies refusing to sell their products to government entitiesÂ enforcing what they see as gun control laws that endanger our Second Amendment right to bear arms forÂ End the Lie, the number of companies was quite small.
That has radically changed recently with the number tripling in just two weeks. Now some 124 companies have joined the fight against restrictive gun laws accordingÂ the Police Loophole, a website established to track âcompanies that have taken the step to publicly announce that they will not sell items to states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizensâ rights to own them.â
The number continues to rise and according to Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. ofÂ CNS News, âIn just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the âFirearms Equality Movement,â has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.â
The number has now swelled to 124, although it is unclear where Gwyn-Williams, Jr. obtained the 118 number for his March 9 report since it should have been 123 on March 9, according to the Police Loopholeâs dates.
Barrett summed up the movement well inÂ writing, âBarrett opposes those who are illegally disarming the American public from their efficient arms and creating superior armed elitist government agencies.â
The most recent company to join the fray, C. and H. Arms, revealed their decision in a FacebookÂ post.
âEven though we love to support our nations law enforcement agencies,â C. and H. Arms wrote, âWe will not sell any item to any agency that restricts said item to its civilians.â
Wilson Combat announced their policy, which applies to California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C. and Chicago, Illinois on February 28.
âWilson 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,âÂ wroteÂ Ryan Wilson, Vice President of Wilson Combat.
âThis includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity orÂ EmployeeÂ of such an entity,â Wilson continued. âThis also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.â
However, Wilson made it clear that they will continue to sell firearms to any citizen not affiliated with the government, so long as they can legally do so.
âWilson 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,â Wilson concluded.
For those who are not aware, the police loophole is the practice of some states, counties, cities and municipalities in the United States that restricts their citizensâ ability to âfully exercise their right to keep and bear arms with restrictions such as magazine capacity or types of firearms,â according to the Police Loophole.
âHowever, these government entities do not place these restrictions upon their ownÂ employees, such as police officers,â thus clearly creating a loophole.
It seems that the Firearms Equality Movement, based on closing this loophole and further discouraging gun control legislation is not going to slow down any time soon. It will be interesting to see how governments respond to this increasingly numerically powerful movement.
