Major firearms manufacturers to relocate their operations from gun-hating Connecticut

(NaturalNews) At three major firearms manufacturers have announced plans to relocate their operations from Connecticut to another more gun-friendly state following the recent passage of what Connecticut legislators say is "the most far-reaching gun-legislation package in the country." According to reports, one firearms company has already chosen Texas as its new home, and several others are currently in the selection process.

On April 5, CBS DFW reported that Connecticut-based Colt Manufacturing, which manufactures AR-15 style rifles and various other firearms, will soon relocate its manufacturing plant from West Hartford, Conn., to Breckenridge, Texas, a small town located a few hours east of the Dallas metroplex. And just a few days later, Bristol-based PTR made a similar announcement, though the company is not yet sure which state it will choose.

"We feel that our industry as a whole will continue to be threatened so long as it remains in a state where its elected leaders have no regard for the rights of those who produce and manufacture its wealth," reads a recent statement issued by PTR. The Connecticut Valley, after all, has long been a hub for the gun industry, and the area's rich firearms history dates back as far as the Revolutionary War.

"We are making a call to all involved in our industry to leave this state, close your doors and show our politicians the true consequences of their hasty and uninformed actions," the statement adds. "We encourage those in our industry to abandon this state as its leaders have abandoned the proud heritage that forged our freedom."

Connecticut's assault on the Second Amendment has the entire firearms industry packing its bags

Signed into law by Connecticut Governor Dannel P. Malloy on April 4, Connecticut's sweeping new gun-control restrictions include universal background checks on all firearms purchases, and the establishment of a gun registration database that restricts who can purchase rifles, shotguns, or ammunition. According to The New York Times (NYT), the new restrictions also ban the future sale of so-called "high-capacity" magazines that hold more than 10 bullets, as well as add 100 more firearms to the state's "assault weapons" ban list.

But just like what happened with Colorado-based Magpul Industries, a magazine and firearms accessory manufacturer that is also in the process of relocating to a more gun-friendly state, the changes in Connecticut threaten to destroy the firearms industry there, which has left the industry with little choice other than to flee the state for its own survival. As difficult as it will be for the workers involved, the future of the firearms industry is at stake, thanks to the short-sighted, reactionary efforts of brainwashed Connecticut politicians.

According to reports, Stag Arms, another Connecticut-based firearms manufacturer that specializes in AR-15s, and Ammunition Storage Components, which is based in New Britain, Conn., have both received offers from Texas and a number of other gun-friendly states to relocate following the legislation's passage. However, no formal announcements have been made by either company concerning their official relocation plans.
