You want to hurt a politician you have to go after their voters. A leap in unemployment will make a lot of voters see things in a new light. Even those unaffected will see the mass exodus of jobs as a bad thing. Your hard core lib will see it as a good thing the evil gun makers are leaving but they will have to justify their stance by showing how these leaving jobs can be replaces in short order. I have not heard of any companies willing to relocate to less gun friendly states to replace these closed factories.

What really needs to happen is a national boycott by the firearms and ammo industries,and deny the local/state/federal governments any access to their product's or services.
Only sell their goods to us law abiding citizens that are not in political/law enforcement areas of employment.
As long as they think they are in power,nothing will change.Take that power away,and they will run like scared little girl's.

I heard not too long ago that Colt was opening a handgun plant and a firearms museum somewhere near Orlando, Fl. I don't know what stage they are at or if it is still in the works. This was before Sandy Hook that I heard this.

I herd alittle about it but nothing recently. They have a big expence to move. Im guessing some where around 5 tp 10 million. Id hate to see them leave but its somthing that need to happen. I dont see the dictator being ousted so other things need to happen.

It was my understanding at the time that it was going to be a new plant for bringing back some old products such as DA revolvers. I remember thinking I hope they bring back the Python

Doc, I've been hearing about that plant since 2011. IIRC it was supposed to employ around 100 people.

Stag Arms is apparantly talking with 41 states to check on the opportunities to move. Sounds like an auction to me. When I worked for Westinghouse Power Generation in the early 11980s they auctioned less then a thousand jobs and Orlando won. Westinghouse got a sweet tax deal for some period or time. I am guessing Stag Arms is doing the same.

Most likely they will all move to Japan. Japan is the most anti-gun government in the world. Americans buy Brownings and Winchesters and others stamped "Made in Japan". Japan uses this money to support world gun control movements. Gun buyers need to look at all these gun companies.
