Why would the New York Police Department want .50 Cal. sniper rifles anyway? Serbu Firearms make a stand.

serbu firearms Serbu Firearms, a manufacturer of bolt-action and semi-automatic .50 caliber sniper rifles, is refusing to sell their wares to the NYPD. Their reason, of course, is that owing to unfair gun laws, they will not support law enforcement in New York.
Serbu is one of almost 150 companies that has officially refused to sell to law enforcement in New York following the passage of the SAFE Act, the controversial gun control package that has been met with scorn by gun owners across the nation.
The company posted the NYPD’s inquiry as well as their refusal to their Facebook page, with names omitted.
Company founder Mark Serbu said, “Unfortunately, we have a policy of selling to state law enforcement agencies only what is allowed to be sold to private citizens in that state. Since the passage of the NY SAFE act, the BFG-50A is considered an assault weapon and as such is no longer available to private citizens in the state of New York. Therefore we have to respectfully decline to supply your department with BFG-50A rifles.”
He also said he felt bad about not being able to outfit the officers, because although he would like to get his guns into “as many police departments as possible,” his decision is a matter of principle.
“Because of a stupid law the venerable NYPD won’t have the best tools for the job.”
What’s interesting about this is that while Serbu makes a fine firearm and impressive .50 BMG rifles, they’re not a first-tier company in the sniper rifle world and are perhaps best known for their compact Super-Shorty shotguns.
Two of the biggest names in sniper rifles, Barrett and ArmaLite, have already stated that they will not sell to the police departments of New York. If the NYPD is calling Serbu, we have to wonder how many other companies have told them to keep walking.
Serbu is the 137th company to halt sales to New York law enforcement according to the unofficial official New York Boycott list, which is now up to 142 companies (at the time of writing) and likely to keep growing.
The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, an NRA affiliate, along with the Westchester County Firearms Owners Association, Sportsmen’s Association for Firearms Education, Blueline Tactical Police Supply and several other plaintiffs have filed suit against the state of New York and the SAFE Act.
If you want to let them know what you think yea or nay, of just “like” them, head over to the Serbu Firearms Facebook page.

    From a police point of view, it is a slightly unusual (sinister) weapon to want. I cannot think of a situation where it could ever be used in a "Non-Lethal" capacity – Building demolition perhaps?

    The British government now only needs the Queen’s assent to formally unveil the secret courts as a new law."~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~While the old bag Lizzie sees and nods her approval, she NEVER signs Parliament Bills into becoming Acts/Statutes of Parliament because when the treacherous old bat was crowned Queen of England she betrayed the indigenous English people she swore a solemn oath to protect, by doing a deal with her fellow jew colleague, the rapacious parasitical Rothschild banking family, for the promise of international bankers advising and assisting her into becoming fabulously rich by her stepping aide from signing Parliament Bills and allowing a Rothchild-controlled Parliament to pass Parliament Bills favourable to the international banking cartels (read: ruthless corporate-raiding international pirates) – so now, when the old bag wants to create Acts/Statutes designed for covertly further increasing her and the Rothchilds' fabulous wealth and boosting stock share values of their multi-billion-pounds investment portfolios, with the guiding hands of the Rothchilds and the main jew banking families she cobbles-up their self-enriching Bill WHICH SHE NEVER SIGNS, gives the unsigned Bill to the little-known, little-publicised Ecclesiastical Privy Council (not the Parliament (temporal) Privy Council), the Ecclesiastical Privy Council then lays the unsigned Lizzie/Rothchild Bill on the table in the House (of Commons) a day or two before the summer recess because all the MP arseholes are solely focused on and daydreaming of their coming long summer-to-early-winter break with their English-worker tax-funded rent boys, dikes, bi-sexos, trannies. mistresses and swopped wives (under-paid, over-worked English tax-paying slaves funding the Westminster parasites, can go fuck ‘emselves with piss-poor short holidays in Costa del Mucho Cheapo or Merde Suite-Le-Mer), so the lazy bastards can’t be bothered picking-up and studying Bills left on the table – and Abracadabra – Hey Presto – any Bill left on the table of the House that’s not challenged within forty days AUTOMATICALLY BECOMES A PARLIAMENT ACT/STATUTE – that the parasitical Westminster arseholes’ summer recess is about 90 days long, Lizzie/Rothchild-proposed Bills go sailing onto the Statute books with nary a second of parliamentary scrutiny nor a faint fart of protest – and the indigenous English people are surreptitiously fucked further into poverty and jew slavery. Unless it’s a private member’s Bill, All other Bills are laid before parliament by the Lord Chancellor – however HE NEVER NOR ANY ONE ELSE SIGNS ANY BILLS HE LAYS ON THE TABLE, MEANING NO ONE TAKESRESPONSIBILITY FOR THE BILL BECAUSE THE LORD CHANCELLOR AND THE PARLIAMENT VERMIN KNOW THEY’RE COMMITTING HIGH TREASON.Finshed writing this comment at 01:00 hrs. 29/3/2013, but my ISP disconnected me from the net before I could fire it off to Gri££in Watch) Fly On the Wall – Political Commentator (8
