AdeQ Firearms Drops LE Customers In Five States, Two Cities

April 12, 2013  | 

AdeQ Firearms Company will no longer sell prohibited firearms, magazines or other prohibited items to law enforcement customers in five states and two cities.

The Tampa, Fla.,-based firearms manufacturer has dropped law enforcement customers from California, Colorado, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, the city of Chicago, and the District of Columbia.

"AdeQ Firearms Company and concerned citizens everywhere have been tracking the disturbing trend by government officials from various states in dismantling individual's Second Amendment rights," the company said in a statement. "We feel that these laws are unconstitutional and take away the basic freedoms guaranteed to every law abiding citizen of the United States."

In February, Olympic Arms announced it would no longer sell its rifles to law enforcement officers in New York, after that state passed an assault weapons ban.

AdeQ Firearms, which primarily produced AR-type rifles, introduced its Vigilum full-sized, 1911-style pistol in September of 2011.

I can only say it's about time more firearm's manufacturers follow suit. Ronnie Barrett has done this for sometime. The right of the people, in this case are 2nd right, must not be infringed.
