Sugar Hill business limits rifle sales, sheriff plans boycott

SUGAR HILL — A north Georgia sheriff has planned a boycott in response to a business limiting the sale of semi-automatic rifles to the general public.

Dana Safety — which sells police and law enforcement equipment in Sugar Hill — calls the ban a safety measure and Oconee County Sheriff Scott Berry says he sent them a letter saying he'll no longer do business with them.

Company representatives say the policy limits rifle sales to law enforcement officials and Dana Safety remains dedicated to selling firearms responsibly.

Berry says he has received about 200 emails in support of his boycott, and those in opposition to the store's decision have taken to its Facebook page to voice their displeasure with the policy.

It sounds like Dana does not trust its sales staff to verify buyers. So now I just find a law enforcement officer that gets his discount to buy the rifle for me and he make a profit and the gun is now into other peoples hands and no trace on the second or third sale.

I should not use the law enforcement officer in the wrong context, Dana sells to anyone that works in the armed guard business. Dunbar, Loomis, Alied , and all those other companies that are known to have bad hires.

Good for you Scott Berry. It is unfortunate that this imbecile, along with those running Dick's Sporting Goods have resorted to preventing law abiding citizens from purchase firearms. Good luck with that Dana!

Dana Safety made a wise choice, considering recent events in our country.

Way to go, Dana! There are many folks who agree with you. They just don't blog with us crazies! Your business will not suffer. May actually pick up from others who support the thought that certain guns don't need to be in the hands of the general public.

What most do not realize is that there are criminal elements that will sell you anything you need for a price of course. Also there are other stores that will sell you what you want as well. Who needs Dicks and Dana safety to provide weapons when other stores will porvide you with what you need. Remember if you take the weapons away from the legal citizen the criminals will be the only ones who will have them.

All Sheriff Scott Berry is doing is making political waves and getting his name in the newspaper. Yeah, it looks like he's being all valiant and making a stand for the citizens, but, all he's doing is stirring the *#@! pot. Dana Police Supply can sell or NOT sell what it wants to, to anybody it wants to. It's a private business and if Scott Berry doesn't like it, he can go elsewhere without acting like he's butthurt.

You have absolutely no concept of principles, do you ?

@notblind: both are standing on principles, I guess. Don't know why you question HeWhoKnowsAll's viewpoint. But I think Dana Police Supply may be standing on one principle and Scott Berry on another. Both exercising their right to do so.

Way to go Sheriff. I am thankful to know that there are people in public office out there that are not shy to say how they feel, even if the demo stooges dont like it. Way to go!
