    Doublestar takes a stand.

    Effective Immediately!!
    Due to the recent changes in 2nd Amendment laws that are pending or currently enforced by states across the country, the J&T Family of Companies which includes J&T Distributing, DoubleStar Corp., Ace Limited, and the DoubleStar Training Academy has been forced to reassess our policies regarding government and law enforcement sales. Effective immediately, the J&T Family of Companies will be joining other manufacturers and distributors by ceasing sales of regulated items in states that have altered the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms.

    The JTFOC will no longer sell prohibited items to law enforcement agencies or any government agencies in states, counties, cities, and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their law abiding citizens. We hope other companies will join us with their support. We applaud those already involved with this effort to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

    n.
    1. Protection of oneself from harm or destruction.
    2. The instinct for individual preservation; the innate desire to stay alive.

    These are all good starts, but it won't have real impact until Glock, Smith and Wesson, Colt, Beretta, etc. also take a stand. I am afraid that even if one or two major gun companies take that stand, another major company will see a marketing opportunity and fill the void.

    I absolutely agree. That thought has crossed my mind since the first company made a similar announcement. It may just be a feel good measure. We all know that feel good measures do nothing more than feel good. But at least these companies are taking a stand. Regardless of what minor, if any impact it will have.

    These are good indicators to us as to who we should do business with.

    Letters, emails, telephone calls, will all help motivate them to support us the way we have supported them. It is time for them to take a stand. You do it with legislative reps now do it with your factory reps.

They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands.

    Maybe post contact info for the major firearm producers here?

    Just noticed that Armilite states they will continue to sell their products to individual police officers in anti-gun states even if they will not sell to agencies. Not sure there is much distinction there.

    "we won't sell to police departments but we will sell to police officers." 6 one way, half a dozen the other. Piss on Armalite.
