LaRue Tactical is a small company in Texas that makes excellent rifles. One of their rifles was even featured on the History Channel’s “Top Shot”.
The purpose of this post is to let you know that the owner of the company, Mark LaRue is someone who is willing to ‘risk’ what he has to take a stand. This is something we all need to be willing to do. On the LaRue Tactical Facebook page he recently posted that LaRue would be restricting sales to states and localities that put in place new laws to limit Second Amendment rights.
Here is the post from LaRue Tactical Facebook page:

Updated Policy for State and Local Agency Law Enforcement Sales:
Due to the recent and numerous new Anti-gun/Anti-2nd Amendment laws passed and/or pending across our country, LaRue Tactical has been
forced to reconsider how we provide products to state and local agencies.
Effective today, in an effort to see that no legal mistakes are made by LaRue Tactical and/or its employees, we will apply all current State and Local Laws (as applied to civilians) to state and local law enforcement / government agencies. In other words, LaRue Tactical will limit all sales to what law-abiding citizens residing in their districts can purchase or possess.
State and local laws have always been a serious focus of this firm, and we are now dovetailing that focus with the constitutional rights of the residents covered in their different areas by the old and new regulations.
We realize this effort will have an impact on this firm’s sales – and have decided the lost sales are less danger to this firm than potential lawsuits from erroneous shipments generated by something as simple as human error.
Thanks in advance for your understanding.
* * This policy does not apply to Military / Federal Agencies * *
While we wish Mr. LaRue would have left out the little disclaimer at the end about ‘not applying to Military and Federal Agencies it is still a significant stance and we applauded him for doing so. Remember to support companies who support our views and causes.
