I’m sure a number of States will be lobbying them to re-locate to their theirs.
There's some serious BS walkin'.
Looks like CT is #1 to me.
Perhaps Maine will ban lobster harvesting next.
At one time, Connecticut was a major manufacturing state, as well as a major manufacturer of firearms and ammunition.
In fact, much of New England is full of old brick factories that went out of business over the years—mostly because they were driven out by taxes and unionization.
We banned your products but we want you to stay here.
I don’t know if it’s stupidity, irrationality or a complete disconnect from reality.
Connecticut-—Nothing like crapping in your own mess kit.
OP-ED | New Gun Law: Good Intentions Meet With Reality

PTR Industries announced last month the company would relocate, most likely to Texas. Others, including Colt & Sturm, Ruger and Stag Arms, are likely to follow suit, taking with them about 3,000 jobs and an estimated $1.75 billion in taxable revenues.
If they leave, its because they want to leave. They have a decision to make are they loyal to their employees who helped them build that company in this place? Gov. Dannel Malloy surmised last week at a community forum in Bristol, home of PTR.
Its unfortunate that, when confronted with the prospect of yet more bad economic news, not only did the governor do his best impression of Alfred E. Newman, but he insulted the entrepreneurs who built those companies by accusing them of being disloyal to their workers.
Bring it on, Texas would love to have them all.
That legislation was one giant gift to San Antonio.
States cannot afford to lose such economic successes.
All of the alleged "green" industries combined, one suspects, do not amount to the economic gain of 200 employed plus 6 mil in monthly sales, with no government support. (The ripple effects are huge, btw, and severely compound the financial losses to the once-great CT).
Guy is a total hypocrite saying he doesn’t see a contradiction.
Oh, how bout if you have WalMarts but nobody is allowed to shop in them? How bout “I really wish McDonalds would stay here even though we aren’t permitted to eat there due to CT health laws.”
I own a Stag AR-15 and some Stag accessories. I will not buy another item from them unless they relocate to a Free State.
I have no interest in empowering the Fascist Government in CT or any other “Blue” State with my hard earned money.
Time for Stag to grow a set and stand by the convictions of their Customer Base.
Which state is no. 1?
Let the utopian liberal fascists have Connecticut. Stag Arms should move to Texas.IMHO they will not likely ever have to worry about moving again.
Have courage, CT gun manufacturers & workers. I moved from CT to TX over a year ago and business is booming, it’s warmer, and there’s no state income tax.
When you leave (not IF) please paint GTT (Gone to Texas) on your front doors and leave those urban slums, I-95, the Merritt, and teeny colonials behind for the good life!
