By way of Larry Correia we discover that STI International has decided that it will no longer sell guns in California.
Previous to this, Ronnie Barrett, of Barrett Firearms Company announced that he would no longer sell any of his rifles to California government agencies, nor would he service the rifles currently held by California agencies.
Now, I realize that STI and Barrett are both niche firearm companies. There simply aren't all that many L.E. agencies in California who are going to be buying one of the big .50's from Barrett, and I seriously doubt if many agencies in California Nerf-land will authorize the carry of a cocked-and-locked STI m1911 clone.
No, I imagine that any reaction from the California gummint is along the lines of: "Goody-goody gum drops! That means fewer guns in our Bubble-Wrap Utopia!"
However, this development gives me a faint hope that one or more of the big suppliers for law enforcement agencies -- Glock, SIG-Sauer, Smith & Wesson -- will follow along and refuse to sell or service California government agencies.
A long shot, I admit. But the State of California has been dancing with the gun-control devil for too long unscorched. It's time for them to start feeling the burn.
