Mark LaRue has released the following statement in regard to state legislation limiting gun rights expressed in the 2nd Amendment. We agree with the conclusion they come to and think all businesses should follow suit. Some may consider this a blow to law enforcement officers, but we hope that they will agree with the premise put forth. Barrett has a similar provision in respect to their products being utilized by California law enforcement. We are sure LaRue Tactical thought long and hard about this decision based on potential repercussions to business, but we appreciate their decision.

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.
