In recent news and a gun manufacturer that is especially dear to my heart because I have one of their rifles and absolutely love it. Stag announced Wednesday it plans to leave the state after passage of gun control legislation which would make the rifles it manufactures illegal to own in the state of CT. Many customers of Stag have urged the rifle maker to leave the state.

The company commented with several statements including:

“Along with other companies in the trade, we were deeply apprehensive at the hurried process to develop new gun laws and fearful that it would generate unintended consequences for our industry."

"What emerged was a bill fraught with ambiguous definitions, insufficient considerations for the trade, conflicting mandates and disastrous consequences for the fundamental rights of the people of Connecticut."

Colt Competition, a division of high end Colt AR-15 Rifles is relocating from Canby Oregon to the great state of Texas. Anything Gun related is flocking there lately. CBS is Dallas Fort Worth reported a week or so ago with the following statement:

“A firearms company that makes AR-15 style rifles for the iconic brand Colt, will open a plant in Breckenridge in Stephens County. Oregon company Bold Ideas confirmed the development Friday.

Bold Ideas goes by the name Colt Competition, making high accuracy rifles for competition shooting. The move by Colt Competition into Breckenridge comes as the CEO of Colt Manufacturing in Connecticut has said there will soon be few good answers to keep his company in the state. Connecticut passed some of the nation’s most restrictive gun laws this week.”

My buddy, Mr. Schmidt, over at Fr33dm Arms, a family owned firearm business based out of Oregon, recently made national headlines going to bat for all of us and upholding our 2nd Amendment Rights. I’ve spoken previously about the customer service and pre panic prices of the business itself but just wanted to make you aware of the kind of man Jason really is. In case you didn’t know it he is an avid supporter of the Constitution and that is very evident in the recent articles and videos coming out of Oregon and at the national level. Read more in some of the links and videos below. It is comforting to know people like this are properly fighting for our rights. Please join the fight and call/write your congressmen/senators. Ruger and Remington both offer great options on their company websites. Don’t stop there seek out other avenues as well. Do not be one of the sheeple that believes your state will never be one of the ones that comes up with legislation such as this. Fight the good fight, prepare for the worst, now. In addition, in my opinion, it would also be wise to support small businesses such as this throughout this troubled times especially ones that fight so avidly for you.

Boy am I glad I live here in Missouri yet have my CCW in Florida which is good in this state. Recent news has stated that Missouri Highway Patrol violated Missouri state law by sharing confidential conceal and carry holder lists with the federal government. Here is a statement from Missouri State Senator Kurt Schaefer and a link to the full article below.

“The Missouri State Highway Patrol has twice turned over the entire list of Missouri concealed weapon permit holders to federal authorities, most recently in January, Sen. Kurt Schaefer said Wednesday. Questioning in the Senate Appropriations Committee revealed that on two occasions, in November 2011 and again in January, the patrol asked for and received the full list from the state Division of Motor Vehicle and Driver Licensing. Schaefer later met in his office with Col. Ron Replogle, superintendent of the patrol. After the meeting, he said Replogle had given him sketchy details about turning over the list, enough to raise many more questions. Testimony from Department of Revenue officials revealed that the list of 185,000 names had been put online in one instance and given to the patrol on a disc in January.”

The attempted filibuster led by some of the more prevalent members in the senate right now included Ted Cruz and Rand Paul which have been lighting up twitter like a Christmas tree lately are giving senate majority leader Harry Reid a run for his money. As you all may know already the filibuster itself has now been defeated and this opens up the current gun control legislation up for debate and down the road of a vote in the Democrat controlled house. 16 Republicans joined the Democrats in overcoming this filibuster.

Stay informed patriots!

Stag Arms, whom I am a big fan of, released a newsletter today stating they were shipping rifles to nearby distributers and resellers in Conneticut. It would be nice if they went a step further with the latest legislation and decided to move to a different state like Magpul did.

Having trouble keeping track of all the recent gun laws? Here is a summary of the Conneticut laws recently signed. The latest legislation bans some of the weapons similar to what was used in the Newtown shooting in addition to high capacity magazines. It also requires background checks for all firearm purchases. Connecticut became the third state to enact such laws following the likes of Colorado and New York.
