Dealing With Kalifornia
JAC and I were bs'in' the other day... talking about Kalifornia and its deplorable ways. Particularly the way they impose ridiculous restrictions on products sold there. Both of us agreed that we'd sooner forsake then entire Kali market than go through the trouble of producing a differently configured vehicle for one state.
We don't own a business though. Its one thing for us to say this. Its another for the owner of a small business in Murfreesboro, TN to write off one of his biggest markets. When Kalifornia outlawed public ownership of the .50bmg, the owner of Barrett Rifles did just that. From barrettrifles.com:
Barrett cannot legally sell any of its products to lawbreakers. Therefore, since California’s passing of AB 50, the state is not in compliance with the US Constitution’s 2nd and 14th Amendments, and we will not sell nor service any of our products to any Government agency of the State of California.
It doesn't get much clearer than that. If the state will not allow its citizens to purchase Barrett Rifles, then Barrett Rifles will not sell its weapons to the State of Kalifornia.
We call those balls.
