Default HiViz Saying goodbye to Colorado

Found this on another site, here is the link to daily caller. Not sure what state they will be moving to?

Fort Collins, Colorado, April 1, 2013 -HiViz Shooting Systems (a division of North Pass Ltd.), announces plans to relocate operations out of the state of Colorado due to recent changes in Colorado state gun control legislation. HiViz President and CEO, Phillip Howe, states that talks are currently under way with officials of a neighboring state regarding the move.

Mr. Howe comments, “I make this announcement with mixed emotions. Colorado is a beautiful state with great people, but we cannot in clear conscience support with our taxes a state that has proven through recent legislation a willingness to infringe upon the constitutional rights of our customer base.” Mr. Howe notes that prior to the changes in law in Colorado, he made several attempts to persuade state officials via emails and telephone calls to proceed slowly with gun control legislation that would impact individual shooters and the shooting industry as a whole.

Although the relocation will be expensive and time consuming, he adds, “It is in the best interest of our company and our customers.” Starting with corporate headquarters, the operations will be moved over an extended period of time ensuring no interruption of services to its customer base, and HiViz states that the majority of its employees will make the move with the corporate operations. More details regarding the location and timing of the relocation will be announced as details are finalized.

Somehow, I do not see California as a possible.

Or welcome in Tennessee! It is about time people and companies start standing up for America and our Constitutional Rights and not just complaining about what is going on! Good for HiViz. We should also support them if there is any products and services they produce! I will be E-mailing them commending their position and support for the Constitution and their customers.

Bigcountry! Thanks for the info!

The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
*Patrick Henry

Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."

-- John F. Kennedy

It will probably be Idaho although Arizona would welcome them.

I know for a fact that it won't be NY either. Counting down the days, my wife is in the final five for a school job in western PA. 3rd interview on Thursday.

Is it better to do the right thing for the wrong reason, or to do the wrong thing for the right reason? If you do the wrong thing for the right reason, is it still the wrong thing?

I've never feared death or dying. I only fear never trying. I am whatever I am. Only God can judge me now.
