It's not like you drop dead if you lose your job.
This is true..you don't drop dead...but in an already struggling economy..when high paying jobs are lost and being replaced with minimum wage our just over positions....your chances of finding an equivalent opportunity become more difficult. If an American company is losing profit Bc of a cheaper to produce import. one of the easiest ways to recoup the Loss is to reduce workforce...or move operations entirely. so if said company is supported by all of us..they make money, employees get paid..workforces expand..everyone wins. this has strayed from guns but the same principles apply.

Only thing about that..is this is a short term panic. The costs associatEd with expanding operations, workforce, tooling, etc. would east them alive when we slow down on buying ammo...lead to loss of jobs and higher ammo cost later...this will blow over.

I think you are forgetting the main reasons US Companies offshore their manufacturing operations. TAXES. When the US Government handicaps them with outrageous taxes and expensive regulations it's time to move to a friendlier place. A place that embraces them not one that punishes them.

Another Big reason for leaving is to get away from the Corruption and outrageous demands demanded by the Unions and Organized Crime.

Three reasons companies leave: Taxation, Litigation and Regulation.

Thank you....but no...I have not forgotten that. I live in a state that was hurt by these exact things in the steel industry...and I agree that unions have hampered industry..as well as government regulation....I am saying, why give them another reason? Now, the great thing about this country its that we have the freedom of choice. You are all free to make your own choices with what you buy....but for me...I will stand by American based companies when it is possible!

Since the op has decided not to participate in a topic designed to elicit outrage this thread is locked for trolling.
