Action Item: Fight fire with fire. 
Please take action described below.
Also, please SHARE this widely and post on other firearms/2A related pages.

At least seven firearms manufacturers/suppliers have implemented new policies refusing to sell arms to state or government agencies and LEOs where extremist gun control legislation has been implemented. We need all of the manufacturers and suppliers to take the same stand with the objective of stopping the egregious legislation in its tracks.

MINNESOTANS FOR THE RIGHT TO KEEP & BEAR ARMS calls for American gun owners to contact the following arms and ammunition manufacturers and STRONGLY URGE them to band together and discontinue sales to government agencies in the state of Minnesota and other states where extremist gun control legislation is being proposed or enacted.

Please note: Be polite, respectful and appreciative in your requests! These are good companies that we want to convince to take a stand against the proposed Minnesota and national bans. KEEP YOUR MESSAGE SHORT AND TO THE POINT, long dissertations will likely not be read. Please contact ALL of the companies below, including the last five that have already established a policy against sales to New York government and LEO agencies.

SUGGESTED MESSAGE: If it can’t be sold to citizens, please don't sell to state and local governments that support or have enacted extremist gun control laws.

Stand with law abiding gun owners against gun control legislation

RE: Please implement a policy to cease sales to state and government agencies where extremist gun control legislation has been proposed or enacted. We're at a critical turning point in America. We need you!


You are a respected leader in the firearms industry. On behalf of the 2,000,000++ law abiding firearms owners in Minnesota (and the 80,000,000+ in America) I urge you to stand with us in opposition to the extremist legislation being proposed in Minnesota and other states (as well as federally). Your customers, the law abiding firearms owners in America, are being scapegoated as "the problem" and will be the ones to suffer if these over-reaching and unConstitutional laws are enacted.

At least six national manufacturers/suppliers have already issued new policy decisions to refuse sales to state agencies where extremist gun control legislation has been enacted. Please take this stand now. Your strong stand will have a good chance of helping to stop proposed legislation in MN and other states, and may help to reverse recent laws already enacted (NY).

In Minneapolis MN, the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis has taken a stand against the extremist legislation proposed and the bully tactics used by our local administration to try and threaten businesses like yours with sanctions: (Letter from the POFM)

We're counting on you. Please stand with us.
