FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Olympic Arms is a staunch believer in and
defender of the Constitution of the United States, and with special
attention paid to the Bill of Rights that succinctly enumerates the
security of our Divinely given Rights. One of those Rights is that to
Keep and Bear Arms.
Legislation recently passed in the State of
New York outlaws the AR15 and many other firearms, and will make it
illegal for the good and free citizens of New York to own a large
selection of legal and safe firearms and magazines. We feel as though
the passage of this legislation exceeds the authority granted to the
government of New York by its citizens, and violates the Constitution of
the United States, ignoring such SCOTUS rulings as District of Columbia
v. Heller - 554, U.S. 570 of 2008, McDonald v. Chicago - 561 U.S. 3025
of 2010, and specifically the case of United States v. Miller – 307 U.S.
174 of 1939.
Due the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms
would like to announce that the State of New York, any Law Enforcement
Departments, Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders within the State
of New York, or any New York State government entity or employee of
such an entity - will no longer be served as customers.
short, Olympic Arms will no longer be doing business with the State of
New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental
entity within the State of New York - henceforth and until such
legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the
State of New York and the American people.
If the leaders of the
State of New York are willing to limit the right of the free and law
abiding citizens of New York to arm themselves as they see fit under the
Rights enumerate to all citizens of the United State through the Second
Amendment, we feel as though the legislators and government entities
within the State of New York should have to abide by the same
This action has caused a division of the people
into classes: Those the government deems valuable enough to protect with
modern firearms, and those whose lives have been deemed as having less
value, and whom the government has decided do not deserve the right to
protect themselves with the same firearms. Olympic Arms will not support
such behavior or policy against any citizen of this great nation.
Arms invites all firearms manufacturers, distributors and firearms
dealers to join us in this action to refuse to do business with the
State of New York. We must stand together, or we shall surely fall
