All I keep hearing from anti-gunners is that the people who run gun companies are heartless, greedy, merchants of death who would do anything to make another dollar.

I guess they’ll have a hard time explaining this story then.

According to a Facebook post made by Desert Tactical Arms, the makers of several sniper systems, the company has turned down a $15 million contract to provide sniper systems to Pakistan.

The country has concerns that the weapons could ultimately be used against US troops in future Middle Eastern conflicts.

Here is the Facebook post itself, embedded from their DTA Facebook page.

I guess the antis will have a hard time explaining how a small, growing company could turn down the chance for millions in order to support their morals.

The post quickly went semi-viral on Facebook, getting over 3,000 Likes in less than 2 days.

What do you think? Did they make the right call?
