Stag is a well known and respected manufacturer of AR-15’s based in New Britain, CT, and they state:

“We were recently informed that the state police and state attorneys will no longer be confirming if a particular firearm configuration is legal under Connecticut’s new gun control law. 

Essentially manufacturers can read the law, have our lawyers read the law, manufacture a configuration we believe is legal, and only after we start selling them will the state police and state attorneys review the product. We have no way to determine what they will do if it ends up not being legal under their interpretation of the law, if there will just be a recall or if people will be going to jail for having an “assault weapon”.”

The law in Connecticut regarding “Assault Weapons” is so complicated and convoluted that not even the State Police can figure out what might be legal or illegal, and they will soon be responsible for administering the upcoming “registration” process.

Stag recently introduced what was a Connecticut legal .22 lr AR style rifle (due to it being a rimfire), the Legislature is now amending the law to include rimfire AR types as well.

The Beat Goes On!

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

Greetings

I would be looking at a move.  Smart buisnesses have moved out of that area over the years .  Callifornia and ILLinois have seen the migrations headed out.   Have yet to read that any moved company regrets getting out of “Socialized” law.

Would the company consider moving in the wake of a Connecticut gun ban? “Absolutely,” Stag Arms President and CEO Mark Malkowski said. “If the state’s not going to be supportive, we have to consider moving.”

And Governor Rick Perry is visiting CT now to help encourage business to relocate to Texas!

Come on down boys, lots of room in Texas! Just to sweeten the pot…. no state income tax, we have our own separate power grid and a PART TIME legislature. proud-to-be-an-american (I’d make that a Texas flag if i knew how to do that kind of stuff)

 

To the paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers:

if you find one...what's your plan?

Maybe your gun law is like the health care law, they have to pass it to find out what’s in it. wink

That is exactly what happened, this law got passed in the emotion of the moment. I grieve for the loss that the Sandy Hook families and community live with every day, but

1) The mental health issues have not been resolved, they are being studied and assessed

2) School security has dropped across the board to exactly what it was seven months ago, non-existent.

Connecticut (and America) has slapped a FaceBook/media/knee-jerk band-aid on some serious problems, not solved anything, and now it’s all OK. It will get better as we turn more responsible, law abiding Americans into potential felons every time an emotionally diseased person uses a weapon to act out their hatred.

  I like Texas, but I do have an issue with their draconian and horribly ineffective (yet expensive) auto inspection laws. We got stuck with a $2000 repair on my wife’s car, for an issue that wasn’t safety *or* emissions… and you see just as many clunkers driving around with stickers as you do in states like AR and AL, which don’t require that you participate in such a scam.

The joke goes further… a former employer of mine, when I was a truck driver, always sent me over to a small town shop that would pencil-whip an inspection on the Peterbilt I drove.

 

Enough thread-jacking, though. On the firearms front, I’d move a gun company to Texas faster than you can say “rattlesnake” if it was located in a place like CT, where only the good guys are being disarmed, and the criminals/spree killers will have a hayday.

 

 

Wouldn't it be great if all wars could be fought just by the a-holes who started them?
