In response to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's recent "assault weapons" and "high capacity" magazine ban for civilians, Olympic Arms is making it known they will no longer do business with the state of New York. Olympic Arms produces precision AR-15s for tactical purposes as well as hunting use. They are convinced that Cuomo's new gun control laws are both unconstitutional and antithetical to Supreme Court precedent--especially District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010).
Olympic Arms penned this message to Gov. Cuomo:
Due to the passing of this legislation, Olympic Arms would like to announce that the State of New York, and 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governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York...until this legislation is repealed, and an apology made to the good people of the State of New York and the American people.
