Give us an all-American boycott

34
Serbu Firearms, a manufacturer of .50-caliber sniper magazine and semi-automatic rifles, refused to sell its products to New York City police. The reason why this is done, disagreement with the unjust, in their opinion, weapons laws in New York.


Give us an all-American boycott


Serbu is one of almost 150 companies that have officially refused to sell weapons to New York law enforcement after the adoption of the controversial SAFE arms control act, which was met with contempt by the progressive rifle community.

The company posted on its Facebook page a request made by the New York police and its official denial to this request.

The company's founder, Mark Serbou, stated the following: “Unfortunately, we now adhere to the policy of selling only those weapons that can be sold to individuals (civilians) to law enforcement agencies. After the adoption of the SAFE Act, our BFG-50A product was considered an assault weapon and can no longer be sold to individuals in the state of New York. Therefore, with all due respect to the police of New York, but we are forced to refuse to sell the BFG-50A to the police. ”

Mark Serbu also regretted that he could not equip the New York police with his weapon, unlike other police departments, but this is a matter of principle.
"Because of the stupid law, the respected New York police will not have the best tool for their work."

Interestingly, being a manufacturer of fine large-caliber rifles, the company Serbu Firearms, however, is not a leader in this area and even more, it is largely known for another product, the Super-Shorty shotgun.

The two most famous names among the manufacturers of sniper weapons Barrett and ArmaLite, have already stated that they will not sell weapons to the police in New York. Therefore, it is reasonable to ask the question, how many failures did the police get before the turn came to Serbu Firearms?

Serbu Firearms is 137 on the unofficial list of companies that officially announced a boycott of New York City police. Total on this list at the time of writing the article 142 company.

In addition to arms manufacturers, a number of community rifle organizations filed lawsuits against the state of New York and the SAFE Act.

      With a similar situation in Russia, the States would have armed gangsters with us and not our police. The result does not need to be explained. And you want all the money, sorry, but what looks beneficial at first glance is not always the best solution. We better observe the conflict of power and the arms business in the States. Izhmash is no doubt an excellent weapon if it is better to arm the Russian army, and Syria would not hurt to help.

        This is true, but judging by who serves in the police and how they serve, I’m not talking about everyone, but 10-20 percent are natural criminals, and it’s not clear what the Chechen police in Moscow do.

      Yeah, if Izhmash were still able to produce a world-class large-caliber sniper rifle, then our snipers would not be bought by imported ones.

        In the sense of a terrorist country? So then arm them not, public opinion ay-ay-ay will say. It's a pity that our defense industry is breaking off
        Or forever the correct answer nah-kh?

        So in states like the law passed on the admissibility of the use of shock drones against their own citizens suspected of terrorism. Moreover, without any trial of these.
        They suspected a comrade of terrorism-rocket on it, that would not have been common. If suddenly a comrade turned out to be a simple layman, and not Ben Ladon, well, they will apologize to the relatives of the deceased. Wrong, with whom does not happen. But sniper rifles are not needed.

      Yes, they spit on the voter ..........
      New York will follow everyone

      "The process cannot be stopped. Get used to it!" Said Michael Bloomberg, mayor of New York, commenting on the city’s total implementation of video surveillance systems and rumors about the possible use of unmanned aerial vehicles to monitor the situation on the streets.


      It seems that the US government is not very concerned about the issue of violation of the rights of its citizens. The main thing for them is to control everyone and everything

        Spit can and spat, but on the sly, since fatten them on the chairs soft further or break off, it depends on this electorate. Here they will spin like a louse on a scallop.

          Yes, not in the quiet, they have been spitting in the open for a long time. As regards resignations and departure from occupied seats, so the spiders themselves eat each other. Regardless of the voter.

        Guys! Pitchfork! Why New York Police Elephant 50 caliber?
        Did they survive out of mind? These are weapons for the army and special forces and the army, for the defeat of armored targets, and targets at long distances. Such a trunk is logical in the units of the SWAT and the national guard! but not for the police!

      Yes, I think no one will fine anyone. American arms manufacturers are well aware - (start a mass unrest in the country - and this shows that it’s already possible) against whom the long-range sniper weapons will be used, against the people - that is, against them themselves ... it’s not for nothing that the State Department bought a huge amount cartridges (including sniper) for the needs of the police ....

    ! It turns out that the police should not surpass the armament of bandits and gangsters, that is, that would "fight" on equal terms! no words ... But it’s time for the population to ban them at all from “arming themselves, otherwise they will shoot each other even without bandits.”

    Upstate New York State SWAT has been the victim of bullying and abusive comments.

    This happened after an officer of this team was spotted with an M4 carbine, on which the EOTech holographic sight was mounted backwards.

    As users of the Reddit military forum noted, such an installation of the sight makes it useless.

    Users mocked the training of special forces officers, and some went so far as to even doubt the mental abilities of the local special forces.

    In the photo above, the officer holds a carbine with a melee sight, which costs about $ 500.

    “It is amazing that: 1) none of his friends corrected him, and 2) he was in real combat situation with the scope backwards. This means that he never shot from this carbine, the carbine and scope were not shot, and he thought it was okay to bump into a gunfight with unshooted weapons, "wrote one Reddit forum user.

    Private business in the USA has found how to shorten the police. We don’t have this, the police would have long interrupted or transplanted everyone.
    We must be able to defend the rights of citizens and firms.

    The Americans, in this sense, are great, they buy more or less good things around the world and experience them, and I think they will inappropriately be surprised that some interesting toys appear from time to time ... it’s time for us to start the practice of purchasing small lots and military trials ... fresh blood is always good.
