Gun grabbers are costing their state’s jobs and tax revenue. Political Outcast has the story…
Shortly after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed their anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment laws into effect, Texas State Attorney General Greg Abbott ran a series of ads in New York inviting people and businesses to move to gun friendly Texas. I never heard if any New Yorkers took him up on his invite, but thought it was a pretty good idea.
Whether prompted by Abbott’s invite or the examples from Colorado, at least one New York based firearms company has announced that they are leaving the state because of the new laws. Kahr Firearms, currently located in Rockland County, New York (home of the infamous interactive map of legal gun permit holders), has announced that they have purchased land in Blooming Grove Township, Pennsylvania and will be moving their corporate offices there as soon as possible.
Frank Harris, Vice President of Sales and Marketing stated:
“We are grateful for the warm welcome and the business opportunity extended by the Pike County Industrial Park Development Group/Business Development Corporation to expand our company and relocate its headquarters office. The Pennsylvania group has demonstrated tremendous support of our operations and Kahr looks to move forward with the project without delay. It’s good for our business and also for other businesses in the area as we build a long-term mutually beneficial relationship with the community. We anticipate generating significant numbers of revenue and jobs for the local Northeastern Pennsylvania economy with the construction of facilities, expansion of manufacturing, and need for local vendors.”
Of course, people will lose their jobs, both the state and local municipalities will lose revenue, but those are minor inconveniences to the gun grabbers. They don’t care that gun control causes more crime and death, people losing their jobs and such are of no importance, the slippery slope to gun confiscation is the goal.
