Due to extremely high order volume, orders will take at least 10 business days to process.
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.”
