    I'm sure its just for your own safety. I'm sure criminals are using 50 cal rifles to rob stores and invade homes.

    The "job-killing" excuse used by everyone who objects to a proposed bill is really getting tiresome. Is Smith and Wesson really going to lay of 50,000 people because they have to make 10 round mags instead of 16?

    That being said, these bills are silly.

    All 'assault' weapons laws are UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

    Fucking treasonous CUNTS.

    Considering Colt recently announced they are building a new facility in Florida in response to restrictive tax and firearms laws in CT..... Yeah, it's entirely possible companies will pack up their shit and leave.

    Sounds like IF they are leaving CT, it's due to Unions and taxes, not oppressive firearms regulations. Or do you have a different source citing that as the reason.

    I've never understood why companies like Colt, Smith & Wesson, Kahr, etc... stay in the states that they do. I mean yea I know moving is expensive and it sucks, some of those companies have a long history, and its just to fucking hot in the South, but this is how you exercise power in this country and when you don't exercise that power, you lose that power.

    Mostly been rumor floating around, but it makes sense. CT has some pretty strict "assault weapon" laws themselves, so why would a company that makes a LOT of money from making them want to stay in a state that restricts them?

    As for the OP, given how poorly worded some gun control laws have been, it wouldn't surprise me to see companies like Rock River pack up and leave IL out of concerns that something like a magazine ban would be enforced against them.

    Colt won't say they're against any gun laws because they don't want to take a chance of pissing off any of the gun grabbing politicians and potentially lose any of their gov't contracts

    I won't buy a Colt because they'll support gun control laws and pay protection money to politicians who are against the Constitutional rights of American citizens.

    I can assure any of the gun manufacturers out there that the state of Ohio would be more than happy to work with them here and we have some of the least restrictive gun laws in the country.

    While not gun related I think the state of IL just had to bribe Sears with about 1/2 a billion dollars to remain in IL and not move to Ohio.

    Ruger was the same way in the past, but have changed quite a bit since ol' Bill died. Colt has replaced all of their former "sporter" (read: neutered) models with rebranded "law enforcement" rifles, complete with collapsing stocks and bayonet lugs. Seems like even the companies that pissed on our rights in the past have gotten their heads out.

    I'm guessing there'd be quite the uproar from both Government/Military and Law Enforcement buyers if you all of a sudden decided to send their factories in China. Billions in contracts gone. No lawmaker worth his salt would authorize construction of their weapons in a foreign country.

    I'll be the first to go all n-person on the thread.

    This is a picture of L. Grace Spencer, the person who is trying to outlaw certain magazines and firearms in New Jersey. She is the representative of District 29 which is the distract that has the lovely little celebration of diversity and mahogany goodness, Newark.

    Aw waah waah waah if we ban "high capacity" this and that, the jigs would stop shooting people at the drop of a hat.

    Federal import restrictions on firearms already mean this can't happen. Hell, even "imported" AKs have to be built on US made receivers and barrels.

    Handguns are a little different story than rifles and carbines, though. I believe the FN plant in Columbia, SC has been making the SCARs that were sold to SOCOM, and H&K has set up new plants in the US to handle rifle production for the 416,

    If they could make all the firearms disappear from the jigs possession it still wouldn't stop the savages from killing each other. They'd just revert back to sticks and stones.

    SIG doesn't have any rifle contracts with the US military that I'm aware of, though. Good reasons for that, too...
