In an effort to assure that Independent Sports Supply provides continuing service to our customer base throughout the country, it is imperative that our actions preserve the integrity of our company, both ethically and legally.
Therefore, with the addition of laws in New York State, New Jersey and Connecticut, ISS under the advisement of legal counsel will not sell “Assault Rifles” or “Large Capacity Magazines” as defined by New York and Connecticut State Law to these aforementioned states.
It is very unfortunate that this has occurred and we do value our customers in these states. We, as your distributor, can not change these laws nor will we work in gray areas. Not until we are advised by our legal counsel and the NRA and NSSF have declared victory for your 2nd Amendment Rights will we begin sales of “Assault Rifles” and/or “Large Capacity Magazines” to these states. We do STRONGLY encourage you to contact your local and state representatives and continually express your frustrations with the enacted state laws.
