Smith Enterprise Letter to Governor Cuomo Regarding Gun Control

Smith Enterprise joins the movement of several other manufactures in limiting sales to agencies in support of the Second Amendment. In this letter, Smith Enterprise states that they will no longer sell items to state agencies and law enforcement that law-abiding citizens are not allowed to purchase - effective immediately.

This is the letter posted by Smith Enterprise:

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo
NYS State Capitol Building
Albany, NY 12224

Tempe, Arizona 85281

Dear Governor Cuomo,

Over the last several decades, Smith Enterprise has sold various firearm related products to state agencies and police departments in New York. However, due to the changing political climate and anti-gun politics coming from your state, we are forced to make some changes in how we do business with your government agencies.

It is improper for us to sell items to state agencies and law enforcement that law-abiding citizens are not allowed to purchase. Effective immediately Smith Enterprise will no longer sell items to your state government that you have outlawed your citizens to buy.

Until your state loosens your gun control laws and ensures these laws are back in line with the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution, Smith Enterprise will be forced to keep this policy.

At a time when crime is rampant and people are becoming more and more desperate due to the struggling economy, it is imperative that state and local governments support the people’s right to defend themselves from would-be attackers. The police have nothing to fear from law-abiding citizens with guns.

When you change your gun laws back to something more along the lines of what our country was founded on, please let me know and we will reopen our sales in your state to government agencies.

Ron Smith

    Dear Ron,

    I would hope that you would also extend that policy to include the Federal Agencies who are actively buying up all the ammunition of all calibers to make our civilian guns useless. Even the lowly .22 LR, as well as the .22 Long and .22 Short is essentially non existent on any web site which sells ammo. Thank you for taking a stand against Tyranny.

    I know you mean well, but Cuomo doesn’t care. I wonder if he has syphilis, and that it must have went to his brain over the last few months for him to push this this whole piece of anti-American, Marxist nonsense. The man has “crazy in his eyes. Either that, or Obama must be holding old Andy hostage. He must have the original “Vote for Mario Cuomo, not the Homo” signs he made for his father’s last election (true story) when he was running against Ed Koch ( an actual noble Democrat, and one with honor).
    Time will tell. I guess old Andy wasn’t expecting such a backlash….

    All I can say is AMEN! for your stand against socialist, communist politicians such as Coomo or whatever his name is??? #GladIliveintheSouth.

    Thank you for making a stand. Your actions, combined with other gun manufacturers help to demonstrate the resolve that our citizenry is committed to in protecting our second amendment.

    The second amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American the right to bear arms. Has any law ever been so ambiguous? What are arms? What does it mean to bear them? At least with the first amendment we know exactly where we stand: Freedom of speech. It couldn’t be any clearer. But, the right to bear arms leaves the second amendment open to different interpretations. We need gun permits to carry a concealed weapon. Do we need knife permits? No. Yet both can, and often do, cause death. We can own a gun, or a rifle, or a sub-machine gun, or a machete, and dozens of other tools to kill, even our own bare hands. So, gun control is a debate in our country that makes no sense unless you broaden the ban or acceptance to include all instruments of death.:”
