    All I can say is thank you to the idiots up north that passed the laws. I'm in the Huntsville area and I can tell you everyone here is happy about it. Hopefully we'll even be able to pull in more companies/business from it.

    Bravo. The sooner that States, and politicians, realize there IS A PENALTY for their actions the better.

    For the gun manufacturers, it takes a very big decision to move.
    The logistics, labor and huge expense to move is a great credit to those that have undertaken this effort.

    We have several manufacturers of weapons and ammo down here in Carolina as well. Word on the street is that more are on the way.

    We'll take those jobs thank you very much.

    Yes, a big thank you to ALL the idiots up north that don't want guns in their state... maybe when the thugs take over your states you'll regret some of your so called "commom sence" laws...

    And Virginia lost a chance at getting Beretta after McAwful was elected governor.
    They even issued a statement explaining it.

    Awesome. Its great that these states will be losing tax revenue!! This is what the politicians wanted in these states, right? Hope a manufacturer moves to Florida so I can visit the factory.

    Laws rushed through in the middle of the night are not attractive to any thinking person.

    It's good to see those companies taking action and not just talking about moving. The liberal states losing companies were complaining about citizens with "job lock" anyway........

    Economically, we're talking about a statistically insignificant loss in tax revenue for these states. However, the politicians in them who cater to mostly liberals will use this issue big time in their next election as a POSITIVE. They got rid of the evil gun company. It will play well to their constituents. The notion that the gun companies "taught them a lesson" is nonsense; they did exactly what the libs wanted. Nonetheless, I'm glad they did. It's win-win for everyone.
