More companies leaving states with hostile gun laws.

Interesting, to say the least. According to an article on FOX news' website, Stag arms is looking to relocate, PTR is considering it and are supported by most of their employees to do so.

I hope other companies step up and move to states that actually would appreciate (and likely need) their business.

Clearly the voices of the people are falling on deaf ears, but I think something even louder will come knocking if more companies were to do this and leave states with hostile gun legislators. The dollar has a great amount of influence in politics these days. Let us hope this sends a sharp message if/when the reprecussions become more apparent.

According to the report that I saw, PTR's departure sounds like a done deal. It also sounds like most of their employees might be going with them.

Good on them, I've been eyeing one of their rifles for a long while. Sometime in the future I hope to purchase one.

I hope Stag follows their example if they are indeed moving.

Simply exercising their right to do business where they choose. If the guys at Magpul read this, please relocate to South Carolina. Pro gun rights, pro business , and we will appreciate you.
