So here’s an example of the “Police Loophole” reverse boycott that I mentioned in an older post. For whatever reason, Serbu Firearms was not originally listed in the table, but I’ve since added them since they obviously are taking part.
Check out the article over at The Real Revo -
Serbu Firearms makes guns, including .50 BMG rifles. Someone from the News York Police Department contacted them:

Yes, I got the message and tried to return the call but got no answer. I appreciate your interest in our BFG-50A; I’m sure it would be an excellent addition to your department’s arsenal. 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.
