Hooray for this gun manuf. They have the guts and now the glory! That is correct, Olympia, IF those entities you mentioned on Facebook forbid John Q. Public from being able to arm themselves and protect themselves then THEY dont' have that right as well! Now, we need to get Glock,Colt, Winchester, Baretta, Sig Sauer, etc. to get in line and do the same thing! It won't take long and they will back off,not only New York but the other states, like in Illinois that is the most corrupt and ridiculous state of them ALL, bar none. If WE cannot defend outselves then YOU dont' have that right either! So, your security guards with their guns that protect your political butt can go find another job! YOU find a save zone, get out your ball points

Glock is Austrian, Beretta is Italian, and Sig is German. While they all have a dog in this fight, I think it is imperative that American manufacturers join Olympic Arms in this all-important battle.

Colt, Winchester, Remington, Armscor, H&K, and Smith and Wesson are the major U.S. manufacturers that definitely should step up to the plate.

Guess what 71 911E - I KNOW what I'm talking about because I happen to have those weapons and FYI - Baretta is also made in the USA, DUH! (typical Texan). Now you can add that to your list of whatever's! It matters NOT where the handgun is manufactured IF they sell in the USA to American customers and they DO. So, I meant what I said, bar none, and that includes any and all weapons mfg. and or retailers! Don't sell to them if you can't sell to us! That makes it ALL fair!

SIG - Schweizerische Industriegesellschaft, German for "Swiss Industrial Company".

US Repeating Arms (Winchester) is owned by FN (Belgian).

HK (Heckler & Koch) is German.

AMRSCOR is Philippine company.

Freedom Group (which is American) owns Remington, Bushmaster, DMPS among others.

Colt Manufacturing is American. As is Smith & Wesson.

get ready to poop and pee on demand IF someone threatens YOU because YOU won't be able to carry either! What is good enuf for the general public should certainly be good enuf for YOU! Political idiots! What a hoot - we will carry no matter what they say - it is our right and we will use that right. I've had guns for over 60 years and haven't shot anyone yet - not that they didn't deserve it! It's called 'being responsible"! Are politicians, like Salazar, born ignorant and stupid or are they just made that way?

Firearms manufacturers usually find themselves playing defense. Following virtually every highly publicized incident involving a multiple shooting, manufactures often are among the first round of scapegoats flogged by the mainstream media and gun-control politicians. Indeed, were it not for the 2005 law that protects gun manufactures from frivolous lawsuits by victims of gun crimes, many would be out of business.

Thankfully, at least some firearms manufacturers now are going on the offensive; returning fire in New York’s escalating war against Second Amendment rights in the Empire State.

In a post on its Facebook page, for example, Olympic Arms, Inc., a...
