Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) visited a rifle and firearm accessory manufacturer today, where he spoke out against the gun control efforts of the president and House Democrats. “I think that effort is cynical; I think that effort is political; and I think that effort is wrong,” Cruz told employees at Leander, Texas-based LaRue Tactical.

LaRue proved to be a receptive audience for Cruz’s message. Earlier this month, LaRue issued a statement that it would limit gun sales to government agencies to mirror any restrictions placed on private citizens.

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.
