Malloy Willing To Risk Gun Jobs For Inevitable Gun Ban
http://ctmirror.com/ ^ | March 11, 2013 | Mark Pazniokas

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, who has made the creation and retention of manufacturing jobs an administration priority, left no doubt Friday that he is willing to risk the loss of firearms jobs to win a stronger assault-weapon ban that he sees as inevitable.

"We don't want to sell these weapons in our state, but they are legally manufactured. We welcome them to stay in the state, and that's up to them," Malloy said of the manufacturers. "But I think we are going to enact an assault weapons ban."

Is there anyplace in the North East which still values freedom?

The northeast does not know its priorities.

Reminds me of Obama telling Cantor “Don’t call my bluff!”

Ct residents deserve everything they get as they keep electing a-holes like Maloy.
The Courant article this AM about gun mfgs was a set up to get the desired responce for the head AH of CT

Malloy is special, but it's called 'the midatlantic' ~ the Northeast is up the way.

Eventually the citizenry will need to create their own ton ton macoute to protect them from this guy.

You’re all yankees to me. I’m down here in Florida where the country started and where we still like freedom.

Actually, due to the Spanish getting run off a time or two by the Brits, it ended up starting in Virginia!

There is a definite upside to all the gun and ammo manufacturers moving to red states. We will need them soon, good to have them here. I hope many of them move here to Texas.

i’m very well aware of that but they movedout several times, so the occupation was broken.

nope, some moved out and some stayed. St Augistine Florida, founded 1565 and continuously inhabited.

You’re thinking of the South East where the Spanish came up through mexico and then left. Although desoto did go through the Tampa area and up into Alabama prior to that time.

Absolutely no; the NE is totally whacko. Time for Beretta (and any other companies in MD) to pull the plug on this fascist-Donkey state. Gov. Malloy can go stick it where the sun never shines.

Oops. My typo: CT vs. MD.

However, the mindset is the same. I'm hoping all the manufacturers in both these Donkey states pull the plug on them. There are lots of places where they will be welcomed among states in the free world.

remember, Maine is tea party strong. They have a town which has nullified all federal food laws. The governor rejects all this liberal crap. Plus, Vermont has some of the most freedom loving gun laws in the nation.

Connecticut is becoming the hard nut to crack. If we can break the liberals in CT, it will have huge national impact.

Actually I’m hot on the trail of two Spanish settlements in the Ohio valley that may well date from DeSoto’s 1541 trip ~ but when a settlement is disrupted and vacant for a year or so, that’s an interruption in ‘continuous’ ~

Archaeologists determined that a site in Fairfax County where the Occoquan runs into the Potomac was a high tech American indian settlement that'd been in use for thousands of years. When first discovered by the Spanish it had about 20,000 residents ~ that'd be anywhere from 1498 to 1550.

The key to understanding this site is they manufactured ceramic plates, pots, tools, etc. Before 1515 all the production fragments found in the vicinity, or elsewhere, traceable to this site were in traditional American Indian designs. After about 1550 all the production fragments are in European designs.

The people didn't change ~ the Indians began selling to a new market ~ at this time it's believed they were selling pottery to European fishermen and adventurers. However, that site continued to be occupied right up to the time the English paid the Powhatans and Iroquois for their claims.

I see additional news about the site every now and then, but the enormity of the claim ~ an Indian industrial town lasting for thousands of years that's been continually settled right down to modern times ~ is being soft peddled. That tells me these guys have got the goods and will be publishing a book about the place.

This is older than Mexico City

Well an Indian site can hardly be counted as the earliest European settlement.

Gov. Malloy: “Dear gun manufacturers, We like collecting your taxes but hate the products you make. Hopefully, we will one day be able fine you for every death your products are involved in. At the very least we intend to do everything we can to destroy your business. In the meantime, please stay and continue to give us your money. Have a nice day.”

Michigan is now a Right to Work State and it's filled with unemployed skilled tradesmen from electricians to pipefitters to millwrights to die makers.........

Michigan got that way as a NON Right To Work State which ended up in fear of losing all its industry to Indiana.

More correct to say Michigan is NOW a Right To Work State!

In the context of the thread it looked exactly like you were blaming michigan's current economic status (skilled workers unemployed) on Right to Work laws ~ hence the need for 'now' in the exciting build up.

So, which were you doing, blaming RTW, or were you after some other idea, e.g. michigan being attractive to maryland's firearms industry? Or something else?
