    Pro gun, pro business state

    I was reading another post on Magpul considering a move out of CO over pending anti-gun legislation. I just wanted to throw out a plug for my home state. If you are considering moving a business from a high tax, anti-gun state, you might consider SD. It is very business and gun friendly. No state income tax, no corporate tax not a lot of hoops to jump through and a motivated, hard working (for the most part) population.

    If you are looking to move a busniess you can check out The South Dakota Governor?s Office of Economic Development Ready to Work

    Just please do not bring your home state issues here and expect to change SD into what you just left. As a young man I lived in CO and it was a great state. But even then it was starting to be taken over by CA transplants.

    So what are the other good pro business, pro gun states?

    Georgia. And, unlike South Dakota, we have a city!

    It's a fair point! It also usually means you have an airport, housing for potential employees, and places to eat... all things that tend to attract businesses to an area.

    Just saw yesterday night that Remington is SERIOUSLY considering moving out of NY State because of the recent ban Cuomo passed.
    They are looking at several states including Michigan.
    Gonna get interesting.
    NY probably won't care too terribly, as they have a great wealth of other companies, so this may prove to them to be a drop in the bucket.

    Utah is very gun and business friendly. We have the open space, the cities, and the quality work force most employers are looking for. We also have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country according to Unemployment Rates for States

    We also offer some of the most beautiful scenery and family friendly places to live in the U.S. Combine that with a relatively low crime rate and what's not to love?

    I've been to Atlanta before and I was very thankful to have a handgun. Georgia might have better winters but the nice thing about -30 degree days in the winter is that it really cuts down on the homeless population. I drove across UT last year and it is certainly has some of the best scenery God has ever created.

    Oooooooooooooklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain.

    I'd set up shop in the Oklahoma City area:
    - Lots of land to build a new facility
    - A big manufacturing area, so facilities are already available
    - Low cost of living
    - Two colleges with big football programs a short drive from OKC, and the Oklahoma City Thunder
    - A pro-gun and pro-Second Amendment state

    Michigan is home to me, and is a real paradise when you consider the surrounding water, the vast upland woods/forest and the breathtaking beauty of the coasts and the UP, which is a world unto itself.

    Utah would be heaven to live in though, as it offers a vast wilderness, and many hunting opportunities.

    I moved out of Taxachusetts to escape life in liberalville; moved to Colorado and thought it was paradise!

    Then, as you stated, too many liberals from California and other locales discovered Colorado and they have really messed up this formerly great state. At my age, I cannot justify another move. I am staying put and fighting for all I am worth to bring back the decent state of affairs that once was the State of Colorado.

    Now, as to the possible Magpul move out of Colorado, I cannot justify ANY company rewarding the current slate of extremely obtuse political perspective that we have (very progressive) in Colorado. Magpul is a company that deserves to have a state infrastructure that fully supports that company's perspective. I can only see negative burdens imposed upon Magpul if they choose to stay here in Colorado. As a vigorous 2nd Amendment supporter, I believe that Magpul should exercise its rights and move. As a citizen of Colorado, I will miss having Magpul in our state but the statement does need to be made.
