Patriotic Hornady Cuts Off Leftist NY State Government!


Hornady stands up to State of New York.


April 23, 2018

“The State of New York did one of the most despicable acts ever perpetrated by any state by asking New York banks, financial institutions and insurance companies to stop doing business with the gun and ammo industry. While it may not make a difference to New York, Hornady will not knowingly allow our ammunition to be sold to the Government of the State of NY or any NY agencies. Their actions are a blatant and disgusting abuse of office and we won’t be associated with a government that acts like that. They should be ashamed.”

 Steve Hornady, President of Hornady Manufacturing Company


Hornady has a long track record of supporting the shooting and hunting industry through advocacy programs, including legislative action alerts and letters, educational initiatives, and promotions. Hornady works with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the National Rifle Association (NRA) and other trade associations to promote, protect and preserve hunting and shooting sports.

    1. Just wait when all hell breaks out and their going to say,; I wish we had our guns, Were defenseless! We Need Gun’s! Guns do much more than these horrible killings. It saved many lives into the thousands. They defend our homes at night so no one will Home Invade us and hurt our women and children. Our Guns also protect us with National Security and Public Safety. Guns deter invading armies too! If they were to take away all of our guns, we would probably be invaded the next day. This is also why a Global, One World Order ordering everyone to give up our guns is even scarier. Gun’s also stop crime and save lives! More people die in auto accidents than any other way of dying except war. We do not outlaw Cars or driving. Why because we need them to LIVE FREE!

    2. Every Politician that violates his Oath of Office should be immediately stripped of their position, arrested for the violation, prosecuted, and once found guilty, should be sent to Prison for 20 years.

      1. I agree, they should be stripped of their oath of office, but it will never happen in NY. Most of that state is so mamby-pamby about everything, that even if they were attacked today, they would be on Jones Beach welcoming the attackers with open arms and free drinks and sandwiches! I am glad I moved out of that state! “New York State, The Land of Taxes!” I am surprised that Governor Andrew Cuomo has not enacted some kind of tax, to drive the cost of ammunition so incredibly high, that the law abiding citizen can’t afford to purchase it! That would be more of his line of thinking!

  1. Good for you Steve and other manufacturers should follow suit. See how NYPD survives without ammo.

  2. Good job Steve! Meanwhile the coward at Vista outdoors is caving in to pressures and dumping Savage and other shooting sports brands, perhaps you should acquire those brands Steve? I can help.

  3. Those politicians are Left wing Socialists and subversives to America !

    All the voters need to send a clear message in the coming Mid Term elections.

    God Bless American freedoms.

  4. This is extortion, plain and simple. If an individual legislator or the governor, is speaking or expressing an opinion, on their own(individual) behalf is one thing. But when they express this same opinion, “under color of authority”, that is so wrong. This would suggest that all of their constituents share the same opinion and that is very likely, not the case.

  5. Good for Hornady! Now the few remaining gun manufacturers should follow suit, as well as, move out of the state.

  6. Mr. Hornady – EXCELLENT reply to the flagrant disregard for commerce & personal protection that the government of NY (I’m assuming the governor? – no caps on purpose) is attempting to dictate.

  7. Great move !!! Next Company please. Till Communists of Red States of America will buy weapon and ammo from Soviet Russia (if Russia will sell them !)

  8. Good for Hornady!!!
    These narrow minded uninformed politicians should see their actions reflected in the next elections. V.T.O.

  9. This should be a major civil and criminal suit! If I were a firearms related company residing in NY, I would pack up and tell them adios, but be sure to include myself in the class action suit.

    1. This is what NY wants, for the firearms manufacturers to leave. Those “second amendment friendly” politicians are just putting on a face and know what to say to get the votes. Look what Hanna did to Remington, and Remington supported him 100%. Now the same with Tenney in Remington’s district. Traitors to our Constitution. NY politicians do not care anything for firearms manufacturers and people’s rights.

      1. The problem for New York in general is that everyone with major funds are leaving. I heard on Fox’s Stuart Varney this morning that a high profile investment group is moving to Tennessee.

  10. I am going to support Hornady and buy some ammo today! Getting tired of the Liberals trying to end run the 2nd amendment.

    1. This is how you show support and vote with your money:

      Order Date 5/2/2018 10:14:42 AM
      Part# Product
      Quantity Price Sub-Total
      TS83464 – 83464 Hornady Black 6.8mm SPC Ammo 110 Grain V-Max-Box of 20 5 $18.99 $94.95

      Order Notes:None

      SubTotal: $94.95
      Shipping Insurance: $1.38
      Shipping: FedEx Home Delivery $12.36
      Tax: $0.00
      Total: $108.69

    1. Not yet, Carl, but fascist NYS with it’s gun grabbing Gov. ‘King Komo” is rapidly catching up with Gov. ‘commie’, loonie Jerry (nickname for Nazi) Brown nose! Both want to increase their Democrud
      voting base by letting in hordes of illegals to balloon the states welfare roles at taxpayers’ expense and to hell with the rising crime rate. We left NY for those reasons and reside in a conservative, gun friendly state with minimal illegal immigrants (so far!)

    2. Upstate areas and Long Island are pro-Second Amendment. The only reason that greaseball, Cuomo, and rat faced Chuck Schumer, and his lap dog, Gillibrand, are still in Office is due mostly to the 8 million assholes that make up New York City, and Westchester County. Now, to be fair, not every one in that toilet of a City is a deranged Liberal anti-gun moron, but the people who actually hunt, in Queens, and Staten Island, make up a miniscule portion of the City’s population, as not to matter, anyway.

  11. Steve is on the right track. Coercive interference with the Second Amendment seems to qualify for a judicial contest.

    Title 42, section 1983 of the United States Code:
    “Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer’s judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable. For the purposes of this section, any Act of Congress applicable exclusively to the District of Columbia shall be considered to be a statute of the District of Columbia.”

  12. Legislation should be up to elected representatives of the people! We are now allowing corporations to determine our rights based on media driven political correctness! We need to start targeting the biased media and demanding the return to reporting the news instead of making it up to fit their own agenda!

  13. What would you expect from a state where the governor’s right hand man is corrupt and he “claims” he didn’t know anything about it! He is either totally incompetent or in on it and when the trial finally came around not one major news agency in the nyc metro area carried it. Talk about media propaganda, seig hiel mein furher! Just be grateful you don’t have to live surrounded by these bleeding heart kneejerk la la land liberals who just can’t seem to learn anything from history!

    1. Being a NORTHERN N.Y. resident.. You are WRONG… N.Y. is being run by COMMUNISTS, and a “governor” who thinks he is a KING. The so-called “democrat party” in N.Y. is LONG DEAD and has been replaced by rabid communists.

      1. The Northern part of New York State, beginning around the Catskill Mountains, should look to secede, and form their own State, letting the five Communist Boroughs, and Westchester County, to be ruled by bug eyed Cuomo, and the Mayor, Lurch DeBlasio. These two idiots can fight it out over who is going to run things. They don’t like each other at all, which makes for great Theater.

    2. Those of us who live in “flyover country” often sit, watch the news or wander through our emails and wonder what made you folks lose your minds! I watched it in California, when business decided that Texas, Idaho and Colorado were more hospitable to their jobs; New York is staggering down that same trail, and no amount of TV commercials will change it.

  14. I’m not at all surprised by this news. I was privileged to know Steve Hornady years ago as a fellow member of the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) Logistics and Regulatory Affairs Committee. Steve was and is a real gentleman who has the wisdom and fortitude to do the right thing. It might cost the company money to boycott New York, but I suspect that if the news receives the exposure it deserves in the firearms media, Hornady will see an increase in business from the citizen sector. I certainly hope so!

  15. With know how much business Hornady does with the NY gov, the statement is worthless. It is really easy to say you won’t do business if you have not business. Conversely, if Hornady does 10%, 20%, 30% etc with NY gov, then that says something.

  16. I personally think all the gun and ammunition manufacturer companies so should stop shipping and doing any kind of business in NY state and let’s see how they control all the crime out there. Aren’t they one of the highest crime capitals in the USA? I feel deep regret for all the law enforcement when they will have to tase bank robbers or someone holding up the NYC stock exchange or maybe Trump towers, Mr. President won’t like that too much.

  17. EVERY ammo supplier should boycot this dispictable state. Stop the flow of all ammo to NY and let’s see how the Law Enforcement establishment fairs after about 6 month. They will be on their worthless knees begging for ammo and forgivness. All states surrounding NY should require a drivers licence showing residency of said state and not to sell to anyone from ny. A line in the sand needs to be drawn with these worthless democrats.

  18. A major congratulations to Hornady!! My only question is: Where is the rest of the guns and ammo industries on this matter? Every firearm and/or ammunition manufacturer who does business with law enforcement or other NY state government agencies must take action to establish their position on this by terminating all sales of end-item units and the parts supporting them. This Leftist, Democrat BS has got to stop before it metastasizes across the country. It appears there is no shortage of stupid people who would have voted for an old socialist or crooked, progressive Democrat for POTUS, so don’t think for a moment that if actions like those of New York officials are ignored they’ll just go away.

  19. Any to go Hornady! I for one are sick of the corrupt State of New York. It’s no wonder that it’s the one choosen for terror attacks left and right.

  20. Hopefully all the other Manufacturers will pick up on this and Boycott them as well. If all the Major Firearms Mfg’s as well as Ammo and police equipment did this then they would cripple them and send a message that this is America and it will not be Tolerated there or anywhere else. It’s high time that the Industry lash out against this Tierney and put the K Bosh on these Liberal States and their Elected officials. I Highly commend Steve Hornady for taking a stand against NY. I have been using their products for years’s and will continue to do so. They have always excelled in all of their products and now have set a new bench mark by taking a stand. I can only pray that the others will follow Hornady’s lead in rejecting any sale’s to NY or any others as well. Living in CT. is no better. We have the same problem with our state if not worst. Our Governor is so Anti Gun it’s driving people and businesses to leave in record numbers. Besides being totally Anti Gun it’s become the Tax Capital of our Country. Enough is Enough!

    1. New Jersey here….no better-highest real estate taxes in the country. In South Jersey there is no where you can drive without encountering toll booths. Now, this Goldman Sachs Jackass that was voted into the Governor’s office(without my help) wants to make the whole place a sanctuary state.

  21. I use several different brands of ammunition but from now on I will make a point of buying Hornady products. I hope everyone who reads this article will do the same.

  22. Politicians just don’t get do they? It’s not the the law abiding citizens who are out there committing crimes it’s the thugs , wouldn’t make more sense to do better background checks and maybe curb some of these people who have mental illness not to be able to purchase guns.

    1. Background checks are not performed by Thugs, selling Guns, out of the trunk of there Caddy. That will just cause, You and Me more headaches and paperwork. The way to curb the Violence is to clean up the corruption and better train the Police Forces. The problem isn’t Legal People, that own Guns. The problem is the Illegal guns, in the hands of Criminals. just mt thoughts

    2. Maybe we can use the Death Penalty that Governor Pataki signed back into law, in the 1990s. That would free up some extra Cells in the State Prisons.

  23. Buying more Hornady today in support! We have a lot of power through our choices where we spend our money!

  24. I Love this! Just a few days ago I read that the FBI’s new choice for their Duty ammunition is Hornady Critical Duty!
    If this so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban goes any further, I can see Steve Hornady cutting the Feds off as well.
    God Bless you Mr. Hornady….

    1. Until the tyrants take them to court. And it will be an expensive retaliatory fight to inflict as much damage to Hornady.

    2. All City, County, State, and Federal Agencies that violate the People’s Right to Bear Arms should be shut down from all firearms, ammunition, and bullet proof vets, and ballistic plates sales from every Manufactuer, and Secondary Retailer in the Country. Let’s see how they change their tune, then.

  25. I agree, all firearms and ammunition companies should completely cut off anti gun states. Once their law enforcement agencies run out of ammunition the thugs will take over, then maybe the morons who vote will be forced to have common sense and elect politicians who are actually for the people not against.

    1. Well, the same goes for the Banks and lending institutions who have cut the-funding to the gun industry’s, these banks and their CEO’S are making an arbitrary judgment against legitimate businesses and that it not the way punish these legitimate manufacturers of legal products, Just like Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Gun Runner Holder did with telling the banks to CHOKE POINT the gun industry.

  26. Everyone in the firearms, ammunition and gun accessory business should follow Hornady’s lead. If your are in any part of the gun business leave New York and come to Texas we will welcome gladly.

  27. The lefts agenda is plain to see. Those that claim that total disarmament of the people isn’t their goal are lying. It’s easy for people that don’t practice their 2nd Amendment right to not care if laws exist that makes owning any type of firearm illegal. Those people are sheep.

    Thousands of people are killed every year by drunk drivers, yet never are there calls by the Left to ban alcohol, why do you think that is? Because it would affect them too. They I’m sure believe that they follow the law, they don’t drink and drive so why should they be punished for what someone else does? Yet the same logic doesn’t apply to law abiding gun owners, we don’t shoot and kill people either but taking our constitutional rights are fine by them.

    The gun industry should fight fire with fire, all of them. Charge way more for ammunition and weapons and equipment. I don’t want to gimp the men and women in law enforcement by manufacturers not selling N.Y. anything, but charging more would be fine by me. The liberal elites need to be taught a valuable lesson.

  28. Good for you Steve Hornady and your company, now we need to have all companies that have anything to do with firearms, ammo and shooting equipment to do the same. I live in California and we are headed in the same direction. It will get really bad for the legal firearm owners and ammo purchases if Newsom gets into the Govenors Office. I would only hope that all people, yes even the “gun haters” would wake up and realize that the liberal goverment is trying to take ALL our rights away.

  29. Gun Manufacturing and Ammo companies should refuse to sell their products to all government agencies who ask anyone not to do business with them. Then let’s see where they will get their firearms and ammo.

  30. Besides being one of the most corrupt ( & over taxed ) states in the union, NY is driven by the liberals
    in the state capitol ( Albany ) as well the city of NY. Gov. Andrew Como instituted the “safe act ” that has also affected our valid gun owners but done little to curb any gun violence. He famously said ( I n so many words ) ” We don’t want people in the state that don’t conform to the progressive way”. I believe if he and his AG could eliminate the 2 nd Amendment in the state, they would do so. It’s a beautiful state but the progressive leadership
    has resulted in an exodus of many New Yorkers. Even Remington Arms in Ilion ny went out of business so long term doesn’t Iook good for conservatives in the State. Hope this gives a little insight on the status of guns & ammo in NY.

  31. God bless Steve Hornady, an American Patriot!!
    It’s time to fund a wall around New York, California and let them drown in their self made welfare states!!
    Sounds drastic for those who are not libs, but to quote their favorite buzz phrase: It’s for the common good!!!!

  32. yeah Hornady! do the leftist morons think no guns and bullets no crime? the criminals will have guns.that’s the whole idea isn’t it!!!

  33. Be careful, Hornady! Como and his goons, along with 3/4 of the NY state legislators will put you to the test, and when refused will use the taxpayers’ limitless dollars to take you to court.

    1. Take them to court for what? There’s no law that says a company HAS to do business with the government, whether federal, state, or local. Look up the “Sherman Act”.
      The only way they could, would be to declare martial law, then take over that business, which would be a guarantee of a new War of Independence!

      1. A new War of Independence? It may be closer than one thinks, friend.
        Whether it will be at the voting booth, or, otherwise. The U.S. is nearing
        the boiling point. Take care, stay safe.

  34. Your awesome Hornady keep up the good work!!!!! Too the Tu Tu wearing coward LIBTARDS Yea keep pushing your Tu Tu wearing anti everything whiny cry baby drama god Libtard Nazi wannabe coward B.S. pretty soon you Libtards are going to find yourselves being hunted. MAKE AMERICA”FREE” and GREAT AGAIN “SHOOT A LIBTARD”

  35. Let me see. If a person comes into MY store to buy something, and I refuse to sell to them based on my personnel belief system and standards, the whole friggin leftist, libtard world falls on my shoulders and destroys my way to make a living. However, if a government supported and protected major bank decides based on their belief and standards, not to loan me money because my belief and standards don’t mirror theirs, the libtard world is fine with that. Just gotta wonder if a gun manufacturer were flying the rainbow flag and built AR’s and other legal weapons, if the commies would come down (no pun) on them and pull funding.

  36. All City, County, State, and Federal Agencies that violate the People’s Right to Bear Arms should be shut down from all firearms, ammunition, and bullet proof vets, and ballistic plates sales from every Manufactuer, and Secondary Retailer in the Country. Let’s see how they change their tune, then.

  37. Thank you, Hornady, and I hope more start cutting off these un(anti)-American liberal meccas so I can personally revel in their folding.

  38. Thank you hornady hopefully they can get together with firearm,saftey equipment,specialty vehicles for law enforcement ect.
