This last week, a number of folks who are in the business of making and selling guns and accessories have decided to boycott sales all sales, including sales to LEOs in the states that are tightening their gun controls on their citizens. So far it’s LaRue Tactical, Olympic Arms, Extreme Firepower Inc, LLC, Templar Custom, York Arms, and USA Midway. Magpul Industries, a Colorado-based company that makes large-capacity magazines, threatened to move out of the state if they restricted citizens’ ability to purchase their products. So, Colorado legislators ignored the threat and passed a bill to limit magazines to 15-rounds – by three votes.
We talked about the gun range owner near Burlington, Vermont who forbade use of his privately-owned range by Burlington police when the city council made gun control noises.
Just this weekend, Prince George’s County’s Department of Parks and Recreation in Maryland decided that they’d ban gun shows on the county’s property;
“It is a temporary moratorium. We will revisit this,” says Anita Pesses with the agency’s Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. “We are taking everybody’s opinions and actions into account.”
Pesses is promising the department will re-evaluate its decision after lawmakers in D.C. and Annapolis are done debating possible gun control bills.
“We felt that given the potential legislation on the state and the federal level, we are putting a hold on that activity for now until we can reassess after the legislative session.”
The move includes only shows that would take place on county-owned land and has led to the cancellation of at least one event.
The Silverado Gun Show was slated for the holiday weekend, but it has been scrapped.
Yeah, well, another route might have been to increase the number of gun shows while politicans throw a collective hissy fit, but it’s just easier in Blue Maryland to stop the trafficking of legal wares and hamstringing legitimate businessmen.
And, oh, by the way…remember when I was warning y’all that the government was buying up loads of ammo as a means of gun control, and someone kept telling us “no, they’re not!” Well, try buying any ammo today – even .22 ammo, which used to be about $.09/round, if you can find it, is going for $.42/round today.
