LaRue Tactical Issues New Sales Policy for State & Local Agencies.

Editors Note: This is a company of patriots, we challenge all companies in the shooting sports industry to adopt this same policy.

LEANDER, TX --(Ammoland.com)- Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.

Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies.

In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.

State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.

We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.

Mark LaRue

      We all know they have no need to fear sales losses as this is an awesome PR move if nothing else.

    2. Tim Beinecke on February 9, 2013 at 8:21 PM said:

      LaRue. You just earned a new customer. The civilians that are firearm owners of this country appreciate your company and from what my friends tell me, your outstanding, high quality products. I look forward to buying some products from your company in the future.

      Respectfully,

      Tim Beinecke

    3. LaRue, The citizen is guaranteed the same weapons as the military by the second amendment.
      Thank you for supporting us on that.

    4. Jeff Fletcher on February 9, 2013 at 8:47 PM said:

      Respectfully Mark, your disclaimer: “This policy does not apply to Military / Federal Agencies” renders your entire new sales policy post void. It is current and specific Federal Gov’t (white house) policy that is pushing the various state’s political hacks to work together in concert for banning military style arms for the public. You’re smart enough to know that.

      Jeff,
      Although you are correct stating, “It is current and specific Federal Gov’t (white house) policy that is pushing the various state’s political hacks to work together in concert for banning military style arms for the public;” there are numerous reasons why LaRue cannot apply the same policy on military and federal government agencies. One that I think of is for our soldiers abroad. Imagine what would happen if our soldiers who are fighting for our country to keep us safe, fight with semi-automatic rifles with 10 round magazines. This is just one example…and if you think hard enough I’m sure you’d find plenty.

    6. Military ok I see that, but govt. agencies?Personnaly that brings to mind HLS FBI hell Fema.

    7. Outstanding Mr. Larue! From a former Marine and firm believer in the Constitution I thank you. We the people have the right to defend ourselves from a tyrannic govt. Nobody wants that, but the govt is supposed to serve the people, and it’s not. If the police and military go back to muskets, so will I. Until then, I will take my continue to have weapons. For the joy of just shooting targets at the range, or for defending myself, my family, my country and our Constitution.

      Awesome response from an awesome company. Just made my opinion of them go even higher.

      It would be awesome if companies would refuse to fill orders for all the ammunition that DHS is submitting

    10. mike starling on February 10, 2013 at 11:32 AM said:

      Nice PR job, that last little note about still selling the feds whatever they want was skimmed over by many. The comment about ammunition manufacturers was spot on. Let the .gov wait until the market stabilizes somewhat.

    11. I wonder which “American” company(ies) have the contracts for providing ammunition to DHS and the other alphabet agencies. One wonders what they think about their potential role in providing our government with the means to subvert and supress Americans through the sale of products designed to do just that.

      If guns are illigal in NY, for example, then why do law enforcement officials need guns? After all; Piers Morgan states that guns are outlawed in England, and the Bobbies carry night sticks and tasers.

      Our government should disarm to the same level of disarmament as the citizens they supposedly represent. Under that scenario, verified with equal control, verification, and penalties, there would be greater assurances that our government could not overwhem the citizenry with unstoppable firepower and resources unavailabe to Joe Six-Pack.

      Of course, a comment made to me by an agent of DHS, was simply that in order to range practice, they need that many bullets to maintain proficiency; at least 100 rounds per officer. I get that. But then comes the question, just how many bullets can citizens keep to maintain their proficiency, without appearing to be para-military or a member of the Tea Party or other Conservative Extremeist group?

      Let us not forget that our comments are scrutinized by DHS and the other NSA like organizations for the exact comments that are being made here, therby getting us a first class ticket to the NSA watch list.

      Just saying…

    12. That is outstanding. All firearm related companies should do the same. while were at it, limit the firepower of our lawmakers armed guards also.

    13. Lest we forget, this is not simply about gun grabs. Has anyone forgotten just how Obama care got implemented? The Supreme Court decided that it was simply a health care tax, and therefore legal.

      Does anyone think that limiting guns will really amount to to stiff per gun taxes, thus making them impossible to own unless the owner has a lot of money to keep the fees, taxes, licenses, permita, etc., in place in order to keep them.

      Once they do that, guns will leave American hands so fast, that government will not be able to find a place large enough to house them all.

      People think and act with their wallets. Do not think that Uncle “O” does not know that. After all, he and his band of merry theives, all studied Lenin and Marx in HAAAVARD. That is the one of the most Liberal, leftist schools of Communism in the country. Does community organizer mean anything? Just look at the methods used to demogoge gun owners and gun ownership.

      This is playing right into their sneaky little scenario, as We The People, get Sucker Punched.

    14. Lurking in the background, quietly bidding time is the 800 pound Gorilla, AKA, IRS. When they begin to put you on their radar, for tax obligations, as regards weapons, and ammo, etc., there will be few escape methods. Citizens will be looking for every way imaginable to loose their firepower in order to escape that threat. We all know just how effective an in place active system the IRS is.

      They plan to use the IRS to implement Obama care. Let us see how guns play out. They won’t ban guns, they want you to think that. They need to pay 16 trillion bucks in debt. Have you thought about where that money will come from? Enter ScapeGoat, Gun Owner…
      They have th system, means, and certainly the desire to frisk everyone just like the Sherriff of Nothingham, in Robin Hoood.
      They will get you last Farthing, and your last Bullet.

      Remember, you heard it here. The bullet/gun rectal exam is on the way. Oh, did I mention, gun registration? The means by which Sugar knows who and where they all are…
      Just saying…

      * * This policy does not apply to Military / Federal Agencies * *

      Should the application of principle begin with that statement?

      One cannot publicly rail about government while feeding at the military trough. Often the local, state, and federal, agencies all work together. Usually not, but…

      Violating gun laws, puts one into the Federal, alphabet soup of agencies. Trust me, when the black panel truck shows up, along with the Suburbans with blacked out windows, they will not be carrying snub nosed 38′s. They will, however have really large alphabets across their backs and guns that very much resemble the one in the picture above.

      Even if you own an arsenal, the chances of having the pleasure of using it, will be somewhere close to slim, to none.

      Didn’t the courts just approve drone strikes on US citizens, or was I only imagining that?
      Just saying…

    18. I am not really sure what you are saying or trying to say. To me, the bottom line is if refuse to sell to cop, Feds, government, etc., and can do it legally, it would be payback for gun laws enacted on JOE THE PLUMBER law abiding citizen. What is good for the goose…
      Homes are broken into and guns stolen all the time. It can happen to JOE THE PLUMBER anytime. Too bad for the government. Go find the bad guy who did it. The whole problem is they don’t look for the real bad guys as hard as they look for the good guys that exercise their rights. If they did look for the bad guys like they should, their problem would be solved. But, they don’t want to solve it, just place blame to take away rights from people who are not part of the problem.

    19. Unfortunately, if Mark LaRue refused to sell to the military and government, BATFE would have the “right” to come in and shut him down faster than you could say “Jack Sprat!” Hence, his disclaimer.

      Mark LaRue and Ronnie Barrett are both to be commended for their courage, principles and forthrightness. I am waiting to see who joins them.

    20. Well done in following the path of Barrett rifles (although I think that he stopped Federal sales as well).

      If I didn’t live in the People’s Republik of MA, I would order a LaRue!

      I a dedicated Larue customer. You make the best stuff. I think you ought to include the feds and the military, too. It’s aal the feds we have to worry about. Militarey is okay, since they can outsource anything anyway, but Homeland Security is the new Big Brother…

    23. Ronnie Barrett did the same thing to California when they banned 50 Cals in that state. Then, Barrett Rifles set about to immediately design a new round, the .416 I believe. Every firearm manufacturer should follow the exact same model. No guns for citizens, no guns for government.

    24. Down here in Texas we are all telling obama and all the other libturd pantie wastes to go to hell !!! HBH

    25. Bob,you are as wrong as hell. Civilians CAN NOT have the same weapons as the military by 2nd Amend.guarantee. If so all my AR15 and AK’s would be full auto. Know what you are talking about before you run your mouth !

    26. DaveGinOly on February 10, 2013 at 9:16 PM said:

      Imagine what would happen if our soldiers who are fighting for our country to keep us safe, fight with semi-automatic rifles with 10 round magazines.
      Yes, imagine that. Imagine how this would cripple our soldiers’ ability to fight. That is the point. The feds wouldn’t be able to claim that these proposed legislative solutions to “gun violence” will work without degrading the usefulness of these weapons in self-defense situations. If the restrictions impair a soldier’s war-fighting capability, they will likewise restrict a civilian’s ability to defend himself and his family.
      LaRue, please consider suspending sales to all federal agencies and the military. All manufacturers and suppliers of weapons and ammunition, please stop supplying all government agencies. Trainers, please stop training all government agents and military. Make them aware that their threats to our rights will have meaningful consequences for them all.

      HBH, since you wanted to yell at Bob, civilians CAN own the same arms as the military according to the Constitution. It says to “bear arms”, it does not say what type and therefore means all arms. Don’t believe me, look at the Declaration of Independence at the 12th reason given for fighting the king, “He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.” Look up NFA 1933 and what douche Reagan did to us in 1986. No sir, you need to know what you are talking about before you open your mouth!!!

    28. my next firearm will be from your company this is a Fact!

    29. * * This policy does not apply to Military / Federal Agencies * *

      I gotta agree that the disclaimer pretty much takes the wind out of your sail. Personally, I’d rather you sell to the local LEO’s, and not the Feds.

    30. Mark, like many of us took an oath to defend this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic. His reorganization of the sales strategy is right on point. Every, and I mean every company involved with any manner of firearms, parts, ammo, etc. should do the same thing as LaRue. This will send a crystal clear message that at some point everyone will be on a level playing field. Way to go Mark.

      In regard to your position LaRue Tactical To Limit Law Enforcement Sales to Same Weapons as Citizens.

      If this is your decision, I think it’s a stupid decision in that you are not selling to supporting the law enforcement organizations in those states, cities or counties that support the 2nd amendment. Perhaps you should run for congress as that seems to be the same mentality our lawmakers are using. I have a son who is a police officer in Massachusetts and both he and his department are supporters of both the NRA and the 2nd amendment. If that is their position, I will not purchase from you either.

      I would like to see your response.

    42. George Smoot on March 5, 2013 at 1:43 PM said:

      I was on here looking to buy products from your company. As a Police Officer reading this, I have decided not to purchase a single penny’s worth of your products and will spread the word to all my fellow colleagues and friends. Supply the Fed Gov’t anything they want but not local law enforcement????

      When someone is breaking into your house or there is a rapist or killer on the loose in your neighborhoods…..call the Military/FBI/ATF or your local neighborhood watch. Good luck in your survival.
