GOOD, glad the Outdoor Channel pulled out. Also, yesterday, Colt Firearms pulled out of Conn. & they are going to Texas with Magpul & Berretta. A number of other firearms companies have pulled out of NY.
The pocketbook is the easiest place to score. When money walks, that helps to make a point of telling you that you made the wrong decision.
It's a domino affect! One business leaves than another business leaves. So it goes!
This seems like a good start of a grassroots movement to hit the money grubbing Gov't of Colorado wants. I think affecting their money could accomplish a lot by hurting them where they live. No pun intended.
Gerry- you have that right, money & losing because of business leaving will pound these States. Since a couple of gun companies pulled out of NY, NY has now been advertising to get more businesses into the state & are trying to get people to move there. It must be hitting them hard also. Texas Governor Perry invited Law Abiding Citizens with firearms to go to Texas from NY- & they are by the 100's. Must be getting to NY, the lose of revenue!
It would be something if Smith & Wesson left mass. I think that would be a major hit for this state. They stayed after the last time when our ridiculous anti gun law was passed years ago. However if we do what NY,CO and other states have done they could decide to leave here too. One thing not considered when this kind of stupidity happens is that there are always unintended consequences that turn up.

Jerry- over the past year & 1/2- over 1 million people have left Massachusetts. There used to be over 1 million gun permits (yrs. ago) in Massachusetts, now there are only 125 thousand. People are getting fed up & leaving.
new york had adds on tv this week stating how safe it was and that they had many jobs for people
Gene- because NY has lost all the gun companies, ammo companies & 1,000's of gun owners (most of whom are going to Texas), NY is attempting to get the "Tonight Show" to go there from Hollywood, figuring it will improve their tax base. It will not help because of NY's gun grab tactics even more people are going to leave. I hope they go bankrupt!!!
Good job, glad they pulled out...
More & more cities are going to feel the effects of Obama's gun grab, and when the pocket book starts getting thinner & thinner, they might think twice.
I think it will take a while. They will try to make up for the losses on the taxpayers backs with increases in taxes and fees for the privilege of living in their screwed up state. It will reach a tipping point when people finally realize they are being screwed on all fronts and won't take it any more. I just can't believe the negative changes in our country in my lifetime. I grew up in the 50's when we were proud to be Americans and lived in a much saner environment.
It is good that certain corporate Executives understand what the mere politicians Ignore. It is sad that it has come such division-and desperate action. but should this not be done-- the Gun industry will be treated like the Moral and Religious citizens who are penalized --and forced to choose between their conscience and the corruption of our laws Between remaining in business by doing what they KNOW is wrong--- or by taking evasive action. I read this letter earlier in the Watchdog.The local Daily Paper and the other establishment rags are firmly in the lap of the State--and Federal Despots.and would not publish it -- I guess.(maybe I just missed it?)
