Good For Mossberg! Let the Liberal Socialist Politicians of those Eastern States squirm in their own stupidity and soon coming financial ruin! I saw a map the other day of all the new locations for weapons industry companies and the South has claimed many recently! It was amazing from Virginia and South! And more building new plants! Come on Down!

Wish we could get one or more of the Gun /Manufacturers here. Trouble is "money" interferes and gets the Gov and Development peopl to steer them to places around Nashville etc. Places where there is crony money and influence. Tried to get Remington and the interfereed and Alabama offered a great deal. They didn't like their arm being twistedt to locate where they didn't want to be and our area was never even shown to them. We got it all. people with talent and hard workers and familiar with machinery and so on. RxR, river transort. Interstate transport with three interstates within 20 miles, at the center on the eastern US. Low low taxes. They want to send us propane farms and chemical plants and we get no tax money and few local jobs.

It makes me feel warm and fuzzy to know that it is not just the citizens who are leaving the anti-gun states, but the manufactures as well. i just hope they remember that some of the northern states are still pro-gun as well as the ones south of the Mason Dixon.

75,

Yes even living in the South now days! Your State, Indiana and others in the North are very progun!

Just as a JOKE! But I was thinking! With all these manufacturers moving to the South those liberal socialist states are not only loosing their tax base! They better hope the South never decides to Rise Again! The South will have the majority of the weapon and ammuntion manufacturing plants in the South!

I'd be pleased as pop if Colt and Mossberg came to Texas. There's no reason why they shouldn't. If the politicians in those states are too stupid to want tax revenues from firearms manufacturers and their employees, then that's their fault.

Hell, I'll buy a Mossberg shotgun even though I already own a Remington just to support them.

Colt is already my AR of choice. I'll happily buy more if they move their operations to Texas.

If we can convince Colt, Mossberg, and Remington to all move their manufacturing operations to Texas, I'd consider that total victory. Colt can set up shop in Austin, Mossberg can come to Houston, and Remington can move to Dallas.

I realize Remington is already moving to the south land, but two factories is better than one, right?

I can't wait to see Texas marked receivers.
