Rick Perry Reaches Out to Connecticut Rifle manufacturer PTR: Come to Texas!


Colt Competition has already moved to Texas because of Connecticut’s new gun control laws and if Rick Perry has his way, Precision Target Rifles will follow suit.

Earlier this week, PTR announced that it plans to leave Connecticut.

This past week an historic and highly controversial bill was passed by the State of Connecticut which will have far reaching consequences to the state, its citizens, and businesses. The bill we refer to is Bill No. 1160, AN ACT CONCERNING GUN VIOLENCE PREVENTION AND CHILDRENS SAFETY.

…The rights of the citizens of CT have been trampled upon. The safety of its children is at best questionably improved from the day of the tragedy that triggered the events that lead us here. Finally, due to an improperly drafted bill, manufacturing of modern sporting rifles in the State of CT has been effectively outlawed. With a heavy heart but a clear mind, we have been forced to decide that our business can no longer survive in Connecticut — the former Constitution state.

After that, Rick Perry reached out to the company on Twitter and let it know that it would be welcome in the Lone Star State.
