LITTLE ROCK — Some Arkansas gunmakers are restricting sales to law enforcement agencies in states that have passed strict laws on guns.
Berryville-based Wilson Combat told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/Y3Bwob ) that it's refusing to sell weapons to law enforcement and state agencies in California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington, D.C., and Chicago. The policy also applies to officers and state employees buying as individuals — but not to nongovernment-affiliated citizens.
The movement is known as the Firearms Equality Movement.
The owner of NFA Gear LLC in Beebe says he also supports the movement and limits sales to law-enforcement to the same items citizens can purchase.
Large-scale law-enforcement suppliers including Glock, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and Sig Sauer have not joined the movement and did not respond to requests for comment.
