Colt Moves Its AR-15 Plant To Texas Over Gun Control Laws


Magpul left Colorado over new gun control laws and Beretta followed suit when Maryland went down the same anti-2nd Amendment path.

Now Colt Competition, which makes AR-15 style rifles, is leaving Connecticut. It’s heading to Texas, which is one of America’s most business-friendly and gun-friendly states.

So far, no one knows for sure if Governor Rick Perry personally recruited Colt Competition, but he has been reaching out to other gun companies. For example, he sent this tweet to Magpul.

Last month Dennis Veilleux, president and chief executive officer of Colt’s Manufacturing Company, warned Connecticut that it might have to move if the state passed anti-gun legislation.

“This will have consequences for dozens of Connecticut companies and thousands of workers. …(Colt is)constantly approached by other states to relocate. Someday soon, I will again be asked why we fight to keep well-paying manufacturing jobs in Connecticut. I will be asked why we should continue to manufacture in a state where the governor would make ownership of our product a felony. Unlike in the past, there will be few good answers.”

The liberals in charge of that state didn’t listen and as a result, Connecticut is going to lose thousands of jobs and millions in tax revenue. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving state.
