    I do believe we have some commercial real estate a little West of Houston that would suit their needs. Right on the interstate and relatively close to the port of Houston.

    I'm sure that West Virginia would welcome any firearms makers.

    I'd be all for it myself. Come on down, to Wild & Wonderful West Virginia.

    Serves them right if that takes place! There are for sure many other States that would welcome them.

    I'd love nothing more than to see all the prime firearms/ammo related firms heading to more-friendly states. More power to 'em, with the only real "loss" being to the citizens of the ejected states. Maybe it'll help hasten the wake-up call that's so desperately needed, though likely not.

    Besides moving out refuse to sell in their states to include LEO.

    We have Les Baer and Gordy's, and just slightly southwest of me is Cylinder and Slide in Nebraska. Bring 'em.

    Best thing the manufacturers can do is just keep making guns the way they do. If they can't sell in NY or CT, well, too bad to those states.

    When the populace start getting concerned that there are no new firearms available, maybe they'll do something about the stupid laws. Nah, not enough gun owners to turn the tide, unfortunately.

    If NY passes a micro stamping law,since no gun manufacturer is going to jump on board where will they get the firearms their LEO's will need? I'm sure it won't take them long before they realize they just screwed themselves before they amend it to say any LEO guns don't need to be micro stamped

    If Loonberg had his way, NYPD would be replaced with stick wielding bobbies anyways.

    That only comes into play if they make guns compliant to NY and CT standards. They can still market non-compliant guns, just not for sale in those states. Remember it is going to cost them a lot of money to pick up and move. It isn't as easy as saying "Let's go to Florida (or where ever)." They need to either buy existing facilities or build new. They have the cost of moving machinery, tear down and build up expenses, moving personnel, training new personnel. There are a lot of things they have to factor in before a move on the scale we're talking about.

    Ok so this has been bugging me for a little while now. I know Colt has been around for a long time so I can figure that much out. That aside, why do gun manufacturers set up shop in anti gun states? If its a major manufacturer, do they not make enough money to go elsewhere?

    New York should have lost every gun maker years ago. How any firearm manufacturer can pay money to a state with such prohibitive gun laws is beyond me.
