Firearms Company Relocating To North Texas
http://dfw.cbslocal.com ^ | April 5, 2013 10:10 PM | by Jason Allen & Brian New

BRECKENRIDGE (CBS 11 NEWS) – A firearms company that makes AR-15 style rifles for the iconic brand Colt, will open a plant in Breckenridge in Stephens County. Oregon company Bold Ideas confirmed the development Friday.

Bold Ideas goes by the name Colt Competition, making high accuracy rifles for competition shooting.

The company has not officially announced the opening, but employment applications are already available at the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce. A non-specific, help wanted ad appeared in the local newspaper classifieds earlier in the week.

I am from Stephens County Texas. The family ranch is about 15 miles northeast of Breckenridge.

This is damn fine news for the folks back home. Damn fine.

The other thing that needs to happen is that ammo manufacturers must stop siding with OBama and Janet Napalatano

STOP SELLING THE DHS AMMO.

I’m not in Stephens County, but I agree it is great news. It should do a lot for the local economy.

Wish I knew how to court another fire arms manufacturer to my county!

Barry Soetoro, aka B. Hussein Obama, first Inaugural quote: “I want to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE AMERICA!”

It wasn't his inaugural address. It was in a speech after he won the first election. I know it's kind of nitpicky but when he said it there was still time to stop the bastard from taking office but no one had the guts.

Here's a link to someone's blog commenting on it.

Hehehehe, my leased land is about 40 miles north of Breckenridge just outside of Newcastle, Tx! I hope they have a factory store. It will be easy to swing by to see what I “need”.

It has to be compete exodus, not just divisions but lock stock and barel leaving of CT, NY and Colorado.

Eventually it will leak over to ALL forms of corporations.

It already has. Texas has been the number one destination of choice for CEOs looking to relocate their businesses for some years now.

Believe it or not, many of us born and bred Californians are conservative through and through. I moved to Texas seven years ago, and have yet to drop a single crumb of liberal pollution on this fine state.

“I’m not originally from California, so I won’t contaminate Texas.”

A lot of us who are “native born” Californians have had to watch while Northeastern Gaigin ( Japanese translation Barbarian Bastards) have infiltrated our state from New England. So I guess you need to be careful whom you call “contaminators.” A lot of folks have short memories when discounting California today. After all, we gave the country Ronald Reagan and more recently, Jim and John Robinson. So watch what you say! Still lots of good, decent conservatives in California.

Wow, this appears to be some sort of subsidiary of Colt's Manufacturing - they're using the same logo.

Here's hoping the rest of the corporation follows.

said this before but how on earth can anyone still live in these socialist states is beyond me.

My misses is from MA but I got her out of there and down here and she said it was the best move she has done and then other day another freeper said they’re getting out of the north east too and moving to GA.

Imagine millions of conservatives moving out of those socialist states and taking their votes and tax money out of the socialist places, thus the red states gain more votes, more tax money and more electoral count

Well said, vette. I'm another native Californian (since the 40's) who is becoming increasingly disgusted with the California hate. Oh, I, too, hate what California's become, but to blame it on the natives is at best naive. We've been inundated by wave after wave of newcomers in the last few decades -- everyone from hippies looking for the fabled Haight-Ashbury to those disgruntled by the politics of their own states to illegal border-crossers.

Look at an election map of California. Aside from the San Francisco Bay, Los Angeles and San Diego areas, California is almost entirely a red state. Those are the areas where the newcomers congregate. (Heck, when I moved down to Los Angeles in the 60's, I didn't meet one single native older than elementary school age.)

Now take a look at a recent Texas election map to see the same pattern emerging. Big city areas (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Austin) all went for Obama. Those same people (and now their sons and daughters) came to California, trashed it, and are moving on. So stay vigilant, pay close attention to your local and district elections, and please stop trashing those of us who have chosen to stay in our native state to fight as best we can.

From the TEXAS Declaration of Independence from Mexico..

http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/texdec.asp

“It has demanded us to deliver up our arms, which are essential to our defence, the rightful property of freemen, and formidable only to tyrannical governments.”

THE RIGHTFUL PROPERTY OF FREEMEN! Even Texas understood it!

Not surprised. They are in Canby, Oregon and with the liberal fascists here in Oregon going down the road of more gun laws, I am glad they are moving to my home state of Texas. We are leaving Oregon next year for Idaho, so the fascists will get only one more year oy my tax dollars. I hope more gun companies leave Oregon.

The 'Gaigin' of whom you speak, changed the state of my birth so much, that I barely recognized the place by 2005. Despite the fact that I still knew lots of decent conservatives there, we were hopelessly outnumbered by that time.

Had it just been my wife and I, we might have stayed, but we have four kids. I looked towards what sort of California they'd inherit when they were grown, and felt that I couldn't make that choice for them.

Your #35 posting is a very good description of what has happened to CA and some other States!

I’m a Natural Born Texan, with ancestors going back to the 1820s when it was Mexico. The BLUE colors appearing on the Texas map along the Rio Grande, Houston, Austin, Dallas and San Antonio are reflective of the influx of illegal aliens’ influence on the politicians in those areas who suck anything for votes. The effect of the influence of the illegals and liberals in CA should gather more attention of Conservatives in Texas and other States, so that deliberate opposition can be put forth.

Man... Sorry for that off topic rant. .....Bring the gun and ammo mfrs. to Texas! We welcome the jobs and we’ll buy the products.

Y’all come! You can’t have too many guns in Texas.

Apparently some in the US Gov't do not agree with that assertion.

This is what happens when the FedGov thinks you have too many guns. Then again, this might not be permitted to happen if it were tried again in Texas.

Is everyone aware of the Texas Nationalist Movement and its goal of a free and independent Texas. They are working in the state legislature, meeting with representatives, and have formed a PAC. There is a website and facebook page if you are interested. Freepmail me with any questions.
