Many Gun Manufacturers and Retailers are refusing to sell guns and ammunition to Law Enforcement in New York and other antigun states.  The latest report on The Blaze claims that "now over 44 gun companies have stopped selling to law enforcement" in states that limit a private citizen’s right to own a gun.

Here is a link to the last article on The Blaze, Gaining Momentum: Now 44 Gun Companies Have Stopped Selling to Law Enforcement In Anti-2nd Amendment States by Mike Opelka.  This is followed by a partial list of manufacturers and retailers who have taken a stand.  Their statements are linked to the names or go to the article.
