OP-ED | New Gun Law: Good Intentions Meet With Reality

by Terry D. Cowgill | May 24, 2013 5:30am

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, it’s 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.

It’s 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.

This guy is seriously screwed-up. Employees can be found just about anywhere, and I imagine there would be more than a few of their existing employees that would be willing to relocate if these companies do decide to leave the state.

I’m no experts, but I believe that fire-arm making requires a highly-skilled, highly-experienced workforce. So these companies would want to take their employees with them, helping them re-locate. I don’t think they’d ditch their employees...

I love the Headline, “good intentions”.

The road to Communism, (or is it Fascism), is paved with Good Intentions.
