Gun companies that will not sell to govt

original assault rifleH/t FOTM reader Joan W.

This is a follow-up to Steve’s post of Feb. 22, 2013, on gun manufacturers refusing to sell to government agencies.

There is a neat website called The Police Loophole that has a list of companies that have taken the step to publicly announce that they will not sell items to states, counties, cities, and municipalities that restrict their citizens rights to own them. In so doing, these companies are closing the “police loophole”.

What is the police loophole?

As explained on the website:

“There are some states, counties, cities, and municipalities in our great nation that fail to allow their citizens to fully exercise their right to keep and bear arms with restrictions such as magazine capacity or types of firearms that are widely available to citizens of other states, counties, cities, and municipalities. However, these government entities do not place these restrictions upon their own employees, such as police officers. It is important to note that we are against gun control; we are not against any particular government agency or individuals.”

Here’s Police Loophole’s list of the “nice” companies:
