Firearms manufacturer to leave Connecticut

PTR Industries, a company that builds high-end semi-automatic rifles at a factory in Bristol, Conn., is relocating to Aynor, South Carolina for its more-friendly gun rights laws, according to vice president of sales John McNamara. Meanwhile, a new Quinnipiac University poll released this week shows 57% of Connecticut residents are in favor of the state's new gun law.
Gun control costs your state jobs.  It's high time the gun industry relocated to states that will welcome them.

Oh, and about those layers of editors and fact-checkers...
The company first announced plans to leave Connecticut in April, when [name of legislation] {sic} was passed, outlawing guns like the ones manufactured by PTR Industries. The legislation was written in reaction to the heart-breaking Sandy Hook school shootings that claimed the lives of 20 children and 6 adults.
I'm sure they'll silently fix that when they notice.
