Texas, Mississippi invite gun makers
Top elected officials in Texas and Mississippi want gun and ammunition makers in several states to flee and relocate to their respective states.Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott and Sen. Ted Cruz have also encouraged gun manufacturers in hostile states to make the move to Texas. Liberals are finding there is an economic price to pay for liberalism and it is not just limited to their high taxes.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn, both Republicans, have made overtures to Colorado-based Magpul Industries and other manufacturers, suggesting that they relocate.
Magpul, a manufacturer of ammunition magazines for firearms, has threatened to leave Colorado if the state enacts a ban on high-capacity magazines.
Perry, who reportedly sent letters to 26 firearms and ammunition manufacturers earlier this month, told Magpul that there is no other state "that fits the definition of business-friendly like Texas," according to the Denver Post.
Perry's letter to Connecticut-based gun maker Mossberg & Sons reads in part, "As you consider your options for responding to unwarranted government intrusion into your business, you may choose to consider relocating your manufacturing operations to a state that is more business-friendly," according to CTMirror.org.
