PTR In Bristol Is First Rifle Maker
To Declare It’s Exiting Connecticut

Hartford Courant [CT], by Dan Haar

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/10/2013 2:02:55 PM

During the three-month debate over gun control in Connecticut, the name PTR Industries Inc. barely came up, but the Bristol manufacturer with 50 employees has become the first maker of military-style rifles to announce its exit from Connecticut since the state adopted a strict ban on sales last week. “Although PTR has not decided upon a specific relocation site at this time, over the coming weeks the company will be actively considering offers from states that are friendly to the industry. We hope to have a site identified within the next six weeks, and hope to have our move

I sure wish they would move here to The Woodlands, TX. Its a little warm and muggy, but a great place for establishing a new business, or re-establish a business in a new location. We´re rapidly becoming the oil capital of the world, but I would also like to see us become the firearm capital of America.

Move to NH. No sales or income taxes and ranked third best in the Small Business Friendliness Survey by Thumbtack and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. An added plus is the existing workforce at Sig Sauer, Sturm, Ruger, and former Thompson Center Arms employees who remained after manufacturing was moved out of state.

No firearms associated business should move to New Hampshire!

In a few years we will be as RED as MA/CT/NY/NJ/MD.

Last Nov we lost the state house, both US reps, replaced a moderate donkey governor for a screaming liberal witch and voted comfortably for that Commie/Fascist POS in the WH.

All of our new democraps ran on very liberal issues. They did not lie their way into office!

For some unknown reason, we kept the state senate.

I fully expect CT/NY/MD/CO type anti-gun laws here after we lose the state senate in the 2014 election.

Fifth graders and Boy Scouts could outperform the GOP in this state which used to be know as the most Republican state in the Union.

We are treated as fools because we are led by fools.

A new Republican poll shows Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in a potentially tough spot for reelection, with more than half of respondents open to reelecting a new senator next year. The survey, from GOP firm Magellan Strategies, reveals 51 percent of respondents say it´s "time to give a new person a chance" in office. Thirty-nine percent agreed that Landrieu has performed her job well enough to "deserve to be reelected." Though those numbers are bad news for Landrieu, they´re not a clear indication half of Louisiana voters will vote to oust her.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan- Secretary of State John Kerry met Thursday with the Pakistan´s new prime minister, Nawaz Sharif, whose election marked the first peaceful transfer of power from one civilian government to another. The Obama administration is seeking to rebalance the tumultuous relationship with the nuclear-armed Pakistan in an effort to work together on counterterrorism, to start peace talks with the Taliban as the U.S. winds down its involvement in neighboring Afghanistan, and to coordinate on other issues of strategic interest. "The common interests far exceed and far outweigh any differences," Kerry said during a joint press conference

Undocumented immigrants with temporary legal status soon will be allowed to pay in-state tuition rates at all Ohio public colleges as long as they meet other residency requirements. Until now, most of the state’s public two- and four-year schools have charged those students out-of-state or international rates that can be as much as three times what Ohio students pay. Today, Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey sent a letter notifying the state’s college presidents about the change, after state Attorney General Mike DeWine determined that immigrant students now may qualify for in-state tuition.

RESTON, Va.— Mark Stewart turns quite a few heads as he zips through the streets on his neon green ELF bike. With each pedal, his feet take turns sticking out from the bottom while a gentle motor hums in the background.

Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked at the daily briefing about Obama´s repeated claim -- which he asserted most recently during a speech in Tennessee on Tuesday -- that Washington is getting distracted by phony scandals. Asked what the president was referring to, Carney listed the scandals

President Obama has been rolling up his sleeves campaigning across the country delivering a surreal stump speech message supposedly aimed at the middle class: big government works, Obamacare is manna from heaven, the wave of recent scandals are “phony” figments of the imagination, and all economic problems are the fault of the Republicans. Conveniently, he leaves out the bankruptcy of Detroit, a city run by his own party for more than half a century. His message is so stale and unconvincing, that even The New York Times and Washington Post have noticed. Both papers, usually loyal to Obama, remarked that

No matter how much you may hope for it, it seems unlikely that you´ll be using the phrase "Senator Sarah Palin" with any great regularity in 2015. A new poll indicates that the former Alaska governor is about as popular in the state as Barack Obama — which is to say, not very popular at all. But even more surprising, while the former vice presidential candidate has made Alaska a central part of her public image, the state´s residents split on the question of whether Palin is all that Alaskan.
