HiViz Shooting Systems intends to leave Colorado in the wake of new state gun control legislation signed into law last month, according to the Northern Colorado Business Report.
The Fort Collins company, which makes sights, recoil pads and other accessories, started in 1996. But like Magpul Industries Inc. of Boulder County, HiViz said it's not happy with the gun control measures approved by the Colorado Legislature and signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Magpul Industries announced last month it will be leaving Colorado.
"I make this announcement with mixed emotions," Phillip Howe, president and CEO of HiViz, said in a statement. "Colorado is a beautiful state with great people, but we cannot in clear conscience support with our taxes a state that has proven through recent legislation a willingness to infringe upon the constitutional rights of our customer base."
The company said most of its employees will make the move, but HiViz has declined to say how many people that will be or which states the company is considering relocating to, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald.

The history books haven't told us the truth about Hitler and how he took over Europe. Here's a lady who does know and is telling you what is happening in our nation today. Take 5-10 minutes in reading her story. You won't believe how easily we have been taken down that same road. But now that we know, we can have a chance to change this, only if we UNITE AND STOP OUR GOVERNMENT. THE SECOND AMENDMENT IS OUR WAY OUT OF THIS PROBLEM. WE MUST STOP CONGRESS FROM TAKING OUR FREEDOMS AWAY....OUR FOREFATHERS FOUGHT SO VERY HARD TO KEEP THE FREEDOM OF RELIGION, FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ALL THE OTHER FREEDOMS WE HAVE. DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO TAKE OUR FREEDOMS AWAY.

All fire-arms manufactures should move to gun friendly states and refuse to deal with un-friendly states.
