    Mossberg and Stag Arms were getting grill by the anti-gun liberal / hippie hag in CT yesterday. Read the article somewhere else and now cannot find it!

    I don't think logic will win vs the emotion these gun grabbers seem to feed on. Sadly

    It will start to matter when they have to arm their security details with Mosin Nagants.

    Colt needs to move from that state period. I almost don't even want a colt because that state is stamped on their lowers! Lol

    Try living here!!!!

    I have talked with a few of the state legislators about some of their proposed bills. When I throw logic at them I always get the same response...... A blank stare.

    Message to the folks at Colt- Virginia has plenty of available workers, production facilities, good transportation, favorable taxes- AND WE LIKE GUNS!

    Colt already has a small facility in Central FL, they should just move the whole dang thing down here. FL would love to have them. Glad the see one of my favs standing up to the mental midgets.

    I have shot Colts and really like them, just wish I could afford one. I think I will by a T shirt from them though.
