    Maybe those workers should have stayed at the capitol bldg longer than a photo op time period...

    Betcha none of the workers move down to TX...

    "Colt Competition" is not Colt's Manufacturing Co. It's a contractor that's moving from Oregon, not Connecticut.

    I understand they're looking at their options.

    NH has a thriving gun industry, but Ruger and SIG can't hire enough qualified machinists as it is. The same problem would exist in almost any state. If Colt's moves to NH, they'd have a better chance of having employees move with them.

    I just saw that too! One of the most valuable lessons I've learned in life is there are limits to most people's resolve. Typically if you threaten them with jail time or destitution, they usually cave. Let's hope I'm right and more firearms manufacturers tell Malloy and the state of CT to kick rocks!!!!
