    Connecticut for Florida – Trickle or Deluge?

    Posted on September 7, 2011 by Dan Zimmerman

    We’ve reported that proactive pro-gun states have put on the full court press to entice gun makers and related firms to relocate from the chilly (as in business climate) northeast to friendlier pro-gun states. Now C Products Defense has decided that doing business in a state that’s openly hostile to your products – Connecticut in this case – no longer makes sense. The manufacturer of stainless steel AR mags is baling out of Newington for sunny Manatee county where, to qualify for a $100,000 incentive payment, they’ll add 100 jobs to the local economy in the the next five years. They’ll also be living and working in a place that actually welcomes them and what they do. The only question left: is this just a one-off or the beginning of an flood of similar companies who’ve decided they’d much rather be elsewhere?
