We just received got the message that LaRue put out regarding sales. They essentially are not wanting to get involved in any suits or issues with arms being sold to people who they don’t belong to. The key point here is that this applies to citizens. While many people try to make a distinction about “Civilians” and other categories, at the end of the day, most Law Enforcement officers are still a civilian. The rules still apply to them – and they should have the same weapons as other civilians (at least in my opinion). The lives of officers are of no less or greater value than your family, and we should be equally capable of defending ourselves. Anyways, enough of my soap box – here is there press release.

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.
