Shotgun Maker Mossberg Moving Operations Out Of Connecticut
Considering Connecticut’s gun laws, this isn’t a surprise. The shock is it took so long:
Yet another storied firearms manufacturer is snubbing the Northeast. Frank Miniter explains over at Forbes:
America’s largest shotgun manufacturer, O.F. Mossberg & Sons, Inc., decided not to expand in Connecticut. Sure it was founded there 1919 and still has its corporate headquarters in North Haven. But in 2013 Connecticut rushed through legislation to ban some of Mossberg’s popular products. As a result, Mossberg CEO, Iver Mossberg, says, “Investing in Texas was an easy decision. It’s a state that is not only committed to economic growth but also honors and respects the Second Amendment and the firearm freedoms it guarantees for our customers.”
Mossberg follows Remington Arms, Kahr Arms, Les Baer Custom, Lewis Machine & Tool, American Tactical Imports, Ruger, Colt, Stag Arms, PTR Industries, Magpul, and Beretta in moving operations out of anti-gun states.
And of course they choose Texas. Where else would they go?
Meanwhile, the people of Connecticut lose jobs and their liberty.
Texas gets both.
Nice work, Texas.
