Liberals insist that they are more moral than gun manufacturers.

But while liberals provide weapons to terrorists in Syria and billions in military aid to Pakistan, Turkey and other state sponsors of terror; Desert Tech put patriotism ahead of money.

A Utah-based gun manufacturer has turned down a $15 million deal to supply Pakistan with precision rifles, citing concerns they could eventually be used against U.S. troops.

Mike Davis, sales manager at Desert Tech, said the company was on a short list for a contract with Pakistan, but spurned the opportunity because of unrest in Pakistan and ethical concerns.

It was a difficult decision because of the amount of money involved, he said, and the sale of rifles to Pakistan would have been legal.

“We don’t know that those guns would’ve went somewhere bad, but with the unrest we just ended up not feeling right about it,” Davis told KTVX-TV.

The company, based in the Salt Lake City suburb of West Valley City, was founded in 2007 on the principle of keeping America and its allies safe, he added.

“I’ve got to admire Desert Tech for potentially turning down what could have been a very lucrative contract in the interest of protecting American service members,” said Col. Steven R. Watt of the Utah National Guard.

If only Obama had been as concerned with protecting American soldiers as Desert Tech was. Instead Obama has freed terrorists and tied the hands of American soldiers with Rules of Engagement that prevent them from fighting back leading to horrifying casualty rates under his rule.

    God Bless them, and I suspect he will with an immense amount of business from patriotic Americans. Needless to say, that won’t include Obama.
