Open up a factory in Ashdod, and employ only American expatriates. You’ll never want for workers.

Unfortunately state legislators that want stricter gun laws and bans don’t give a flying crap about jobs.

300 jobs is nothing in their scheme of things. The Fed probably hires and fires that many in a day.

All Jill Biden needs is a double-barreled shotgun....and six or eight Secret Servicemen to keep her safe in MD 24/7.

Texas welcomes any and all gun manufacturers. Y’all come!

Come to Kansas.

With our history of guns, gunfights, concealed carry-friendly towns, gun clubs, shooting sights, NRA and GOA members, soon to become tax-free on incomes.

We have lots of women who support guns and gun ownership, participate in fire arms proficiency contests.

We've already invited other gun manufacturers here to sample our fair state.

It’s difficult to import small arms into the USA of certain kinds. Basically the parts can be made abroad, but a certain amount of USA labor has to go into the process.

I work for a military contractor, and been told of the repeated issues trying to get the Tavor into the USA, despite massive demand.

I’ll bet Perry already has his flight booked to try to get them to move to Texas. Good luck, but if you want it, you gotta go get it.

No, he doesn't know the difference. And anyone who doesn't know the difference shouldn't be posting on this forum. Bullets are to cartridges as flour is to bread as cement is to concrete, etceteras. They may not have the capability of learning the language.

The tax vulture LIBs already have in Maryland ( THE Freak state). When we left that LIB hellhole last year we had to pay 3.5 % "exit" tax on the sale of our house. It was well worth it. May everyone who is not a moonbat asshat leave that crummy jurisdiction.

Open letter from the Texas Attorney General:

Here in Texas, you will have the liberty and the opportunity to achieve your dreams. On top of that, we have no income tax, yet still manage to have a multi-billion dollar budget surplus.

We have right to work laws and a reasonable regulatory environment. Texas has created more than 275,000 jobs in the last year alone! And we’ll fight like hell to protect your rights.

You’ll also get to keep more of what you earn and use some of that extra money to buy more ammo.

I hope to see you soon in Texas. In the meantime, sign up to show your support for our second amendment rights.

Sincerely,Attorney General of Texas

Get out of Marxist Maryland, run by Marxists O’Malley and Miller, two betrayers of a once great state.

Come to Virginia where we are still free, though most black, Hispanic and white liberals voted into office Tim Kaine (as governor and now senator), Jim Webb, Mark Warner, Jim Moran, his brother Brian, red-green state senator Addam Ebin, now Rep. Gerald Connelly (who missed his real place in history by a couple decades, Nazi Germany), and a couple loud-mouthed jerks down in the Tidewater region.

Illegal Hispanic immigrants have more power in ultra-liberal Montgomery County through their tax-payer funded Casa de Maryland than does the average working man or woman of any group. Casa gave us the far-left Dept. of Justice thug Perez, head of the Civil Rights Division, a man who never met a white middle-class person he didn’t hate.

Get out of Maryland and let it sink deeper into the economic and political cesspool it is now in. Maybe in the future, when the people realize that they have hit bottom, some will wake up and throw off the marxists and their political cronies.

I was born and raised in Baltimore. Used to know honest politicians back in the old days. Now I wouldn’t know where to find one. We used to call Maryland “The Free State”. Not anymore.

Just try to protect yourself against the rising tide of criminals and you’ll learn why you are no longer “free”. Try to live a safe life in Prince Georges County. It ain’t gonna happen. Their unofficial slogan to potential newcomers is, “Come to PG County and die!”

Here in Virginia, we don’t put up with that shit despite the liberals wanting to import it.

As Shania Twain would sing, “Come on over, come on in”.

Especially up in the Panhandle. Eglin AFB is where the Beretta was first chosen and beat out all the other brands.

The Army insisted that they should do the testing and eventually came up with the same results.

Kind of an odd thought. Wonder if history will write that the gun manufacturers moving to red states will be part of how sides were drawn in CWII.

Being a life long flyover red state resident, I’d damn sure rather have them move here and keep making product.

...anyone who doesn't know the difference [bullets vs cartridges] shouldn't be posting on this forum.

If FR were solely a firearms forum, I'd agree with you, but it's not. There are over three hundred thousand people with Freeper accounts, and not all of them have basic firearms education.

Why not give them a hand up, and help them to raise their knowledge level on firearms? We're all in this together.

We have a lot of fools when it comes to electing the president. Factors: Race, ethnic race and white guilt, plus a heaping serving of Dumb as Dogshit.

We have a Republican-light governor and if Ken Cuccinelli wins in the future, watch out. It’s cleanout the leftist cesspool of the Democrats with dynamite time.

I do not concur with your position. People with less than average knowledge about a subject should not post opinions or erroneous facts about that subject on any forum. They should lurk and learn rather than add confusion and misinformation.

To let misinformation on this forum to go uncorrected is akin to not correcting your children's grammar or language.

Smith and Wesson collapsed into a pile of compromise to the Clinton Administration...and they paid for it.

I guess gun makers learned their lesson about selling out the second amendment for some radical leftist approval. I only wish the other limo-liberal American CEO’s would learn the lesson of compromising with the commies. Share holders should wake up. Unless they are in the business of gay sex, their CEO’s are way too invested in radical craziness.

You might be surprised.

A study was once done, where it was calculated that the entire population of the planet could comfortably fit inside the borders of Texas, divided into units of no more than three people, each living in standard three bedroom houses.

Trust me, we've got plenty of room :-)

Gee, maybe you can get JimRob to craft a new rule to that effect. Why, he oughta just ban people for having the audacity to comment on subjects in which they're not expert!

Why stop at the grammar, punctuation, and spelling police? We need to have the terminology police, and they need to be deputized with their own zot guns, dadgumit!!
