    They are a military contractor and due large sales in the US. I'm sure they'll be up and running again ASAP.

    The report that I read claimed about $250,000 in damage. They'll be back right away.

    Hopefully they will use this opportunity to relocate to a gun friendly state.

    Does anyone else find it ironic that most gun manufacturers are in the most gun-unfriendly states?

    Interesting thought, to add to it here is a thought i had; I wonder how large/small the tax breaks are from those states to the manufacturers. What "incentives" does the gun-unfriendly state give them to stay there.

    I would hazard a guess that the location of many of the arms manufacturers is an artifact from the 1860s, but I have never researched the matter spcifically to be able to make more than a supposition.
