Palmetto State Armory Refuses To Cave In

Palmetto State Armory issued a statement after Dick’s Sporting Goods announced Thursday that it would no longer sell assault rifles or high capacity magazines at its 35 Field and Stream stores.  Dick’s also announced that it would no longer sell firearms or ammunition to anyone under the age of 21.  Walmart made a similar announcement Thursday.

PALMETTO STATE ARMORY STATEMENT BELOW

Palmetto State Armory would like to go on record stating that we support the Second Amendment. While this may seem like an obvious statement, we as a company felt it necessary to make our opinion known to the general public. Palmetto State Armory also strongly supports the First Amendment which enables individuals to voice their opinions, even those in contrast with our own. We believe that a primary purpose of the Second Amendment is actually to protect the First Amendment.

In regards to the actions taken today by the CEO of Dick’s Sporting Goods to no longer sell the AR-15 platform, while we do not agree with this decision, we recognize the fact that capitalism gives him the right to make this call. PSA however, does have an issue when misinformation is spread in the very next sentence by referring to the platform as an “assault rifle.” AR stands for Armalite Rifle which pays homage to the company that originally created the platform. To blame the rifle or a high capacity magazine for the actions of an evil man is illogical and is only applied when referring to firearms. Senseless acts of violence are a terrible plague on society that we all recognize we need to try and prevent as a community, but to blame a tool such as a firearm is at very best missing the point of the problem. When a vehicle is used to commit an act of violence we as a society do not blame the car, we do not blame the speed, or the steering wheel, but rather the driver. It is our hopes that we can approach this negativity with humanity and both sides of the argument can come together and have a civil and intellectual conversation that continues to make this amazing county better. We are all in this together, and we all want the same thing. Safety, happiness, and the “American Dream.”

 

Well said!

One has to wonder why Colt's lawyers are not on the offensive.  AR-15 is a trademark of Colt. Why are they NOT defending their brand???  Where are the patent trolls when you actually need them?

Palmetto State Armory is one of the best vendors for rifles, kits and parts, as well as ammunition. They clearly are supportive of the rights of the law abiding . Hopefully, the law shall remain Constitutional, and worth observing
