Their website, www.jgsales.com, just announced their new policy is to apply the same restrictions on sales to law enforcement/government agencies as might apply to law abiding citizens in any given jurisdiction. So, if I can't buy a 30 round mag. in New York, then neither can they. I love it. What's good for the goose is good for the gander! Good on JG Sales. Hopefully this will catch on and create more heat on the nimrods who create anti-gun legislation.

Brilliant! I wish every major retailer would follow suit. It makes the government put their money where their mouth is so to speak. If NY gov isn't able to get their high cap mags and complain, it would very publicly raise the question; if 7 rounds isn't enough for you to defend yourselves, why is it enough for the public?

I sent them a message saying thank you. I will help them make up for potential lost sales by purchasing more. Every single transaction I have ever done with them has been 100% positive. Seems like many businesses outside of California keep calling me to leave; I can hardly wait!

They have my respect.
If they also sell Prvi .303 at competitive prices, they have another future customer.

Great outfit. Used them for years. I sent them a note too. I will do more business with them.

Good for them. I can't help but wonder though, just like with CTD, how many law enforcement sales did they really do? It seems like this may just be an empty gesture.

Unlike CTD, I love JG anyway, and stand behind them. I just don't know if PDs are buying from outfits like JG or if they order straight from distributors.

It does not help that Armalite is still willing to sell to LE in NY. Good for JG... Shame on Armalite.

I don't know if its good or bad, after all it is not the cop on the street or local sheriff, thats trying to ban Everything, its the Politicians, and plus say a cop gets in a shootout with a banger who has a a 17 or 33 round mag and he's limited to7 or 10 rounds, and lose's the fight because of that, thats when the politicians will say say time to ban all civilian guns because even the mag restrictions did'nt work, plus I don't care for putting LEO's in a even more dangerous situation then they are already in just to score points.

But if it affects them, perhaps they will put pressure on the anti types high in the ranks who do push for gun control.

I really like what some of these companies are doing. I know someone above questioned if it was fair to the law enforcement branches in such states...they are civilians and citizens, same as most of the residents. They should recieve the same treatment from the governement as all the states citizens, or the citezenry should be given the same rights as the civilian law enforcement. No guns or mags for John Q. Public, then the same goes for LEO.
I personally think LEO should be able to use anything they feel they need to defend themselves, as should the people of a state. Self defense and civil rights are not only for LEOs and politicians.

It's an empty gesture: why would you ship an item which is illegal within a zip code, no matter who is receiving it? That would be a bad liability decision to begin with.

How'd the latest psychopath kill more than 25 people? LEOs were reloading their 7 rd M4 magazines!? Brilliant!(sarcasm)

Bravo!!More in the industry need to take on this approach.

Out of thousands.....

Really, this is just feel good PR crap. Won't put a dent in anything.

While I will agree JG is a good company (for other reasons) but still.

Just sayin.

^^^Call it what you will; I believe it is real good.
Those who enforce the law are no better than those who make the law. Citizens deserve and should expect to not be treated as second class. I think we are going to see more in our industry jump on the boat, let's help them along.

I live in Prescott AZ where JGsales is located. They've gotten a fair chunk of my change. Nice folks in person and decent prices.

I lived up the road from J&G for about 10 years, I was in there shop several times a week. Good place to buy guns and whenever I visit Prescott it's always one of my first stops.

Amazing! J&G does something positve in support on Non-Govt., Non-LE gun owners and is demeaned for it... Calling it feel good PR crap, empty gesture, won't put a dent in anything? Should a dealer, distributor, or manufacturer have to publish a balance sheet to prove a certain amount of monatary loss in LE/Govt. sales before publically taking a Pro-2A position. Would you prefer they publically supported all the new and pending anti-gun legislation???

I like JG, and I appreciate their gesture. That said, I have to agree with others here that, while commendable, I don't think any of these companies adopting such policy are actually sacrificing.

If someone can show me that any of these companies actually did a decent amount of NY LEA sales, then I really applaud them for putting principles before profit. Barring that, it really does amount to a PR move.

Let me lend an example I gave in another thread:

I run an automotive repair shop. Suppose the US government passed a law that all cars sold to the public must be governed at 79 MPH, but police and government vehicles are exempt.

I can stand up and say "I refuse to sell parts to or service the vehicles of any government agency!". Everyone cheers, I've taken a noble stand, hooray for me. But I don't work on LE and government vehicles to begin with, so this stance can only help me by increasing my customer base.

But the shop 12 miles east of me has long worked on county vehicles, sheriff's vehicles and the local police vehicles; Those accounts comprise a significant portion of their revenue. If they take the same stance, it will be a serious economic loss to their business. They may have to let people go, even close their doors.


So, if JG sales and these others are the shop East of me, then Bravo! But if they're my shop, well, it's pretty much just a stunt, and in their best interest to capitalize on the current political situation.

If we can get ALL the arms and ammo manufacturers to take this stance, then we might just accomplish something. But I will say confidently that it is not going to happen. Companies like Colt have always made Govt/LE sales a priority, pretty much consider us pee-ons. Same for HK. I find it interesting that Armalite, who has actually refused sales to LEAs, is catching so much flack, yet Colt, HK, Glock and others who have said nothing are given a pass.....
