Kahr Firearms to make a move out of New York.
 
just saw this today on Yahoo and thought i would share it. seems as one gun manufacterer isn't going to stay in a state that is looking to infringe on LAC's rights to own firearms.

There is this little piece of property in the Florida Panhandle......

I think they would be welcomed here.

Excellent, now if we could just get Remington and all the other gun manufacturers to follow.

Customer supply and demand has a lot to do with influencing a manufacturer.

Refuse to purchase those firearms made or marketed in NY or IL.

(yep, that is Springfield Armory and Kimber included.)

They are a little late, but at least they are doing it. Once NY fully has their hands out of their profits, I might have to look at Kahrs more closely.

I don't know what the deal is with the NY facility but Kahr's main offices are in Ma.

Until they vacate that state, they'll never see a dime from me...

Too bad, they make some pretty spiffy firearms with some pretty good reviews...

The most baffling thing is how many gun manufacturers are still located in gun unfriendly states. I know a lot of those companies are old and moving manufacturing is ungodly expensive, but the writing has been on the wall for awhile.

Politically, those same states don't look to change anytime soon and I fully expect them to eventually start targetting those manufacturers in the form of extra fines or taxes. Basically make it as uncomfortable to do business in those states as possible.

I've pondered the same thing and here's what I came up with...

1-Those states weren't always so rabidly anti-rights states. You can trace the beginnings of firearm manufacturing in this country to almost exclusively the Northeastern area...

2-Material acquisition- Being originally form the Northeast, I can tell you there are TONS of quarries and foundries in that area. My thought is that they set up shop in a place where raw materials didn't need to be shipped in.

3-Simple population density-Makes good business sense to set up in an area with a metric azz ton of people for a customer base...

4-Your point about costing an arm and a leg to move a facility. It's a business and the greenbacks call the shots...:cool:
