Serbu Firearms Refuses to Sell .50 Cal Sniper Rifles to NYPD
#1
Quote:Serbu Firearms, a manufacturer of bolt-action and semi-automatic .50 caliber sniper rifles, is refusing to sell their wares to the NYPD. Their reason, of course, is that owing to unfair gun laws, they will not support law enforcement in New York.

Serbu is one of almost 150 companies that has officially refused to sell to law enforcement in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act, the controversial gun control package that has been met with scorn by gun owners across the nation.

The company posted the NYPD’s inquiry as well as their refusal to their Facebook page, with names omitted.

Company founder Mark Serbu said, “Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.”

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

Great! Now I would love to hear the arguments NYPD will make about why they need the rifle and why they are the only ones unprofessional enough to safely use it. Wait, what?Rolleyes

I'm glad to see this company is sticking with it and I hope enough join together to get the politicians to wake up.

I'm happy to see this, but at the same time none of this will play a major role until Glock, Sig, and Smith and Wesson get on board too. Even if Federal ammunition and Winchester ammo would play major roles too. Most LEOs I know are issued either Federal or Winchester.
