York Arms Cancels All Its New York Police Orders

York Arms
York Arms

Buxton, ME --(Ammoland.com)- Based on the recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York.

We have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.

As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

For “civilian” customers residing in New York: At your choice, we will:

  • Complete your order and ship to a dealer of your choice outside of NY.
  • Refund your payment in full.
  • Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

For LE/Govt customers in New York: Your orders have been cancelled.

AmmoLand supports and recommends York Arms please visit these patriots and support their brand. www.yorkarms.com  . If you think SIG, Smith & Wesson, and Glock should do the same you can email them at with the tool found here: http://tiny.cc/k9resw .

    1. You have just earned my business. Thank you so much for supporting our Second Amendment rights. Rest assured you have done a noble thing here. Can one say Patriots?

    2. Has anyone started aggregating the manufacturers that now refuse to sell to LE/Gov because of these laws? I’d be interested to see how many orders are affected as well as whether or not the big players (Sig, Glock, et al.) intend to follow suit.

    4. I salute York Arms and LeRue Tactical for their stance. The link suggests writing to SIG, S&W and Glock. The email addresses provided go to the LE sales managers. This is the wrong person to write to as we are talking about their sales quota so they are probably the single least sympathetic person at the whole company. Write instead to the CEO of each company. Whatever you do, write someone at each company.

    5. Wonderful. The only way to stop this growing idiocy is action like this by all gun manufacturers, not just in NY but in any state where their product has been banned or restricted to anyone other than law enforcement. After all, why would a responsible manufacturer want to ship a product that the state has deemed unsafe to the police; one would -never- want to give “unsafe products” to law enforcement.

    6. KUDOS – I hope all other fire arm manufactures/retailers will follow. I’m not a resident of NY, but this is on the horizon for many other states. A loud and clear message and I appreciate it!

    7. Thank you York Arms.

      I wish I was in the market for a new firearm, but will you accept an order for about 1,000 rounds of .308 Winchester FMJ as a consolation prize?

    8. Before today, I’d never even heard of York Arms… Now I’m a customer. Voting with my pocketbook and off to find something I need to order!

    10. As a resident of NY I commend you and Olympic arms for doing so. I am appalled by the laws passed behind our backs and hopefully your companies taking millions of dollars in business out of this state will help our government get it’s head out of the dark hole they stuffed it in. Good job guys, as a company try convincing the other big Leo suppliers to back out too and eventually this state will be forced to change.

    12. I’ll go one further and say if Glock, Smith & Wesson, Ruger and the others don’t follow suit, they’ve gotten the last dollar from me they ever will. If enough people will say the same we would have some clout.

    13. We are a buying and selling local only fb group mass and ct based good for you for standing up for our rights we are law abiding and deserve to fully keep our right to bear arms and not have them infringed upon I will also buy from only manufacturers and and support 2a politicians only in elections :)

    14. As a Viet Nam boonie rat Marine, Army National Guardsman, Iraq IPLO “private contractor”, retired LE Officer and Hotel/casino security Officer I support this company completely. I will patronize them at every opportunity, over all others. GO FOR IT GUYS!!!!

    15. I hope your business triples because of your stand for Americans rights. I will remember York in future firearm orders.

    16. I’ve never heard of you and have no idea of your quality or customer service. That being said, you are now my main supplier.

    17. How many orders did York Arms actually cancel due to their new policy? Anyone have a dollar value on this, or is it just a publicity stunt? It’s easy to cancel or refuse to take certain orders if you get practically no business from them.

    18. I thank you for your stance on the second ammendment rights. I’m now a new customer and I have no idea what you sell!
      It’s business owners with your ideals and patriotism that make this country.
      I wish I could say a great country also, but with this president we have and what he’s done I can’t at this time say that.

    19. You have earned my business and I will promote you to all my friends
      NY needs to buy there stuff from China or N Korea since that’s the policies they follow

    20. I also salute this action. When petty tyrants howl, let them howl at the wind with empty arms. Why is any patriot still in NY, or California? Get out, move – but LEAVE YOUR LIB IDEAS in NY and Ca! This is the meaning of integrity.

    21. Dear Law Enforcement Sales Manager,

      Recently New York rushed an ill-advised and unconstitutional law infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. Other states are poised to write similar laws. I urge you to follow the lead of LaRue Tactical which has adopted this policy: If it can’t be sold to law-abiding citizens, it won’t be sold to state and local police agencies either.

      There are 800,000 sworn police officers in the entire United States. The FBI reports a total of 2,495,440 NICS checks, and thus firearms sales, in January alone. Police sales are not your major business. It’s time for firearm manufacturers to send a clear message that you will not participate in the slow erosion of our Second Amendment rights.

      (NICS numbers Source http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/nics/reports/20130205_1998_2013_monthly_yearly_totals.pdf)

      Signed,

      A Concerned Gun Owner
      Ps
      Any state that is unconstitutional should lose all gun business and all gun business and manufactures should move out to gun friendly states let that be a lesson to the Democrats! Move to gun friendly state who will not infringe the constitution in any way. Boycott any state that is not Gun Friendly, boycott the government sales of any kind of arms to the Government. Let them swallow the hook. Its there fault.
      Thanks for Reading!

    22. This company and others should do the same thing to the city of *hitCago and the entire State of Illinoy. Ppelling errors on purpose.

    23. York arms ty for the courage to stand up to the tyrants who want to take away our rights.I hope others will follow suit. Great job! And much resoect.

    24. Thank you for doing the right thing and supporting the 2nd Amendment. If I didn’t have medical issues that prohibited me from being able to safely ‘hold’ a weapon (let alone fire it); I’d do my business with you.

    26. Bravo! I’m a S&W, Glock and Ruger customer as well and have been for years. I’m going to give this another week to hear from these folks specifically Glock, where my Husband will be picking up his 37 and I’m picking up my 17. If we hear nothing from Glock we’ll be canceling our order. Same goes for Ruger who we’ve been a customer of for 2 generations. Also, to the ammunition MFG’s, you’re supplying overkill rounds to this government going along with their forced ammunition monopoly. You can’t arm lawful citizens then sell ammunition that seems to be aimed directly at us gun owners’, your customers. Take a side NOW!

    27. I’ll be buying from York Arms! Thank you! To many big companies are trying to destroy our constitutional rights by influenceing government officials. It’s nice to have one that’s on the side of the U.S. Citizens!!

    28. I spent the last month or so shopping for a small to midsize concealable 9mm (for permitted concealed carry), and found a RUGER that I was planning to purchase next week . . . that was before I read this article.

    30. Very Patriotic!…Nice to see companies standing up for what’s right and sending a powerful message to the people who will NOT get re-elected!…Hopefully more heavy hitters will do the same!…Congratulations for your courage, Well done!

    31. God bless em… Sometimes doing the right thing cost you business, but the right thing has a way of paying off in the long run! I know I will remember their heroic stand!

    32. Well done. I do believe this will become a trend. [I am not sure what you sell, but] I will be finding something to buy from you in the future… Non illegitum carborundum!

    33. Thank you York Arms! You have a new customer from Michigan. For the companies that don’t following the lead of these brave companies that are standing for our Second Amendment rights, I say don’t buy their product.

    34. i just want to say thank you for not selling to ny law enforcement i just hope remington and other gun manufacturers would not sell to them

    35. I applaud your actions and only hope more retailers do the same. Like they say, Whats good for the goose, is good for the gander.

    36. I’m retired law enforcement and support your company, it’s time to stand up for WE THE PEOPLE and all our rights.

      Thank You

    38. Thanks for representing the people over an oppressive government. I’ll be purchasing from you in the immediate future.

    39. DO YOU HEAR THAT SOUND?

      THAT LOUD “SUCKING” SOUND!

      THAT’S THE SOUND OF GUNS AND AMMO BEING SUCKED OUT OF THE STORAGE UNITS AT ALL NY POLICE STATIONS!

      THAT’S THE SOUND OF LIBERTY AND FREEDOM MY FELLOW AMERICANS!

      THAT’S THE SOUND OF A MIGHTY WIND STARTING TO GATHER SPEED AND POWER AND THAT WIND IS CALLED TORNADO OF FREEDOM!

      FREEDOM CAN’T BE STOPPED OR SLOWED DOWN BY SOME IDIOT’S THAT WRITE SOMETHING ON PAPER! IDEAS CAN NEVER BE STOPPED!

      SPREAD THE WORD FELLOW AMERICANS! TELL THE WORLD THAT AMERICA STANDS FOR SOMETHING PRECIOUS, SOMETHING SPECIAL, SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR!
      MAKE OUR FOREFATHERS AND FOREMOTHERS PROUD!
      THEY SACRIFICED FOR US!
      WE NEED TO SACRIFICE FOR KIDS AND THEIR KIDS AND THEIR KIDS!

      LOYAL PATRIOT

    40. We should take back our government. The other manufactures need to follow suit or I will have a reason to boycot them. Viva The Revolution.
