Olympic Arms to New York State – Take Your Business Elsewhere

Hey New York
Olympic Arms to New York State – Take Your Business Elsewhere

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.

Olympic Arms
Olympic Arms

Olympia, WA –-(Ammoland.com)- 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.

In 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entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York – henceforth and until such legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.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 restrictions.

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.

Olympic 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 divided.

I have bought Olympic Arms products for years. I’m glad that I did and will continue to do so! Thanks.

Good for you Olympic!
I (unfortunately) live in NY and am totally opposed to this obsessive, stupid, and unconstitutional attack on the 2nd Amendment by the NY (mis)leadership.
We’re trying to get this piece of legislation nullified and to impeach Mr. Cuomo and send a message to State leaders not to infringe on our Rights.
I hope that other firearm companies join you in refusing to do business with NY State.
Keep fighting for our collective Rights and God Bless America!


You have a new customer in me as well,if we could get everyone to stand up to the government like you,maybe they would leave us alone,they need to focus all their energy and resources on catching the real criminals,not the decent law abiding ones,I will browse your website to see what I can purchase.

You say 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. I have to assume you will include all other states, cities and counties that take positions such as New York did. If this is your decision, I think it’s a stupid decision in that you are not selling to or 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… Read more »

I am glad to see that you are still allowed to exercise your First Amendment without some governor telling you how to write. Too bad the 2nd Amendment lost out in NY. I hope the founders of the next great nation on our planet remember to put enough checks and balances in their constitution to prevent the citizens from being robbed of their rights in a step by step erosion under the pretense of protection.

ardie johnson

You have another new customer! Thank you for supporting our 2nd amendment rights!

David Story

Let me know how i can support you. if i can find one of your weapons, i’ll buy it this week!
thank you for showing those who need to see it that values are more important than money.


It’s time to stand up and be counted!

Boyd Ellis

Nice to see a gun/ammo maker that has guts….where are all the other ones?

Chad E. Collins

I will do everything I can do to support companies that stand for our rights like this

val trevino

u have my support all firearm co. need to follow

Duane Wasat

Excellent! You got my support in banning New Year and their government. i hope every firearm companies follows in stopping service to states who ban AR’s.

Dale Roy

Great job I support your decision 100 percent

Donald E Boozer, USAF Retired MSgt

Congratulations on action you have taken against gun controls freaks of the Democratic party. Hopefully other arms dealers will follow in your footsteps. You have my business and I’ll forward as much business your way as I can!

Steven Confino

Good for you. Although I love NYC and always will. As ac American, I have to agree with you. Any Government that goes against the constitution of the US should be dismissed from duty. Now I will go and drink my soda and clean my AK while having a cigar in my man-cave (Located in FL) so I don’t have to worry about the NYC gov. arresting me for having too much soda in a cup!

The state of Missouri should be next if they pass the laws the Democrats are wanting passed there


Kudos to Olympic arms. Hopefully all arms manufacturers will follow suit with any government entity enacting any anti 2nd amendment laws.


own and use your products for many years quality stuff good decision on behalf of all people who believe in the 2nd amendment.


thank you Oly Arms Semper Fi my friends


I think I just decided whose AR-15 I want to buy. Way to go Olympic!

Ken G.

Too bad you can’t order from their site. Hey OlyArms you should sell a T-Shirt with all proceeds going to support the 2nd Amendment and sell it on your site. You would sell millions. I’d buy my share and then some!

Tom T.

This is the silliest thing I have ever heard of and plays right into the hands of those who believe that gun rights advocates are nuts. My gosh, the very idea of denying arms to those who protect is rediculous! Mr. Schuetz must have been smoking crack to up up with this idea…


Makes me more proud to be a satisfied Oly Arms AR customer, Way to go Oly…


Wonder how long it’s going to take Remington and Kimber to pack up and leave the state?


Olympic is setting an example for the rest of the industry to follow. I look forward to seeing the big players – Smith & Wesson, Glock, Ruger, as well as ammo makers like Speer, Winchester, Remington, and Federal – do the same. Any maker that cuts off NY will make my short list when I’m considering another firearms-related purchase.


I think this is awesome and support you 100%. I think all other firearm dealers should NOT SELL TO NEW YORK!


Courageous Stand. I’ll go to your web site and see what I can buy. I have cancelled all business trips to New York as a result of their silliness. We need more companies to stand up for our Constitution. Great Job.


As a former resident of the State of NY I salute you!


Kudo’s to Olympic Arms. Every gun manufactor in the USA and elsewhere should follow your, principled, lead.


Good job, now if more will join you.


If your company is tired of New York. The Great State of Michigan has many incentives to relocate your company in Michigan.


finally,a great amerian co. with a set of b —-.you,stand by all amerians rights,i am sure you will more than make up any lost from n.y.i,will be on your site,as soon as i say thank you , olympic arms,you and your co. makes me feel great, as we have a great chance to let the world know,you dont mess with the good people,of the usa.and our rights.


Thank you Mr. Shuetz for taking a stand against tyranny. To my knowledge, your company and that of LaRue Tactical are the only ones to take such a stand. I applaud you and your employees for not only the stand but for the risk of diminished sales. Come to Texas, we’ll take care of you.

Andy Cox


you will never miss there bussness and will gain more costmers god bless you,god bless usa

J Magrone

Bravo Olympic Arms !!!! Hats of to you for standing up to NY State and it’s law makers. Hopefully other companies will follow.


Bravo!!! Hats off to you for standing up to these criminals! I live in Kalifornia and my hands are tied but Im still applauding you… in my head!

Alan Korb

Olympic you get a double Atta’ boy from me…!


WTG! I hope more companies follow your lead!!

Tory II, Illinois

I own an Olympics Arms Rifle. It’s an excellent product.

I will never enter a Dick’s Sporting Goods store again (never, ever).

Josh Harn

Good to see a company will sacrifice sales in order to do what is clearly right and moral. Thank you Olympic.


You just earned yourself a new supporter….


Bless You Olympic Arms!
You are about to gain a whole lot of customers as a result of your stand!
I applaud you all!

LG Balespear

Sirs: I also applaud Olympic for their stand with the other precious few companies taking a stand vs the beast. Now it willbe interesting to see if S&W and Ruger, who have both collaborated with the Feds in gun control legislation in the 1990’s will be now shamed into the honorable course of action….. Let the cops throw rocks, until they develop some backbone and quit just following orders for the paycheck….hmmmm doesn’t that make them worse than those “nasty ol’ streetwalkers?”
thanks, Balespear

Diana J

Awesome! You will definitely have a new set of customers from my family.


thank you Olympic. after reading this I just called my local gun dealer and told him to order me a new ar from you.

C. F. Lastufka

Olympic Arms has always been a good company with high quality products following the traditions of the great State of Washington ( not to be confused with D.C.).


if all gun companies stud-up for there product,then the government could not run over us.thank you

V Goldstein

As a resident of NY state, I applaud you. Our Governor is way out of line and does not ask the people what they want. He just goes to the legislature and gets it passed. We have no one speaking for us in this state.


Good on Ya Oly Arms!! You can bet that with demand as it is you won’t be losing any business. We have have a long memory (just aks David Roberti) and this act of nobility will not be forgotten.
