Gun manufacturers to boycott police?

We've heard a lot about county sheriffs vowing to stand up the feds when it comes to their constituents' Second Amendment rights. Now gun manufacturers are joining the rebellion.

From the Christian Science Monitor via the Washington Times:
At least 50 U.S. gun makers, gun machinists and other gun-related business owners have banded together to fight what they perceive as a massive attack on the Second Amendment, with many even threatening to stop sales to police to the same degree as the government cracks down on civilians.

Some of the businesses are threatening to close up shop and move from any state that passes laws restricting the Second Amendment rights of civilians, the Christian Science Monitor reports. Others are threatening to close “the police loophole,” the Monitor reports, and refuse to sell to law enforcement the very same gear, ammunition and weapons that the government denied to civilians.

For example, New York Arms of Maine writes on its website, according to the Monitor: “Based on recent legislation in New York, we are prohibited from selling rifles and receivers to residents of New York [so] we have chosen to extend that prohibition to all governmental agencies associated with or located within New York.”
Perhaps some of them may take a look at their contracts with the city of Chicago.
