LaRue Tactical to restrict law enforcement sales in response to gun control laws – tinyurl.com/b3wdaw6
— Guns.com (@Guns_com) February 9, 2013
Good for LaRue, for a number of reasons. First and foremost is that gun manufacturers, such as LaRue, probably have a higher profit margin selling to the general public than they to to government agencies. And second, the Chief of Police of many large Police Departments are openly advocating for gun control measures and outright bans on many of the guns sold by companies such as LaRue.
Why should a company sell it’s goods to a group that wants to outlaw your livelihood?
Via Guns.com, here’s the statement released by LaRue:
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.

Though, I’d feel much more comfortable with LaRue and other gun manufacturers restricting sales to federal agencies, such as Homeland Security, who now has a reported 1.6 billion rounds of of .40 S&W and .9mm ammunition on hand. Or enough ammo to supply a 24-year long war against Iraq.
