NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose administration has been actively talking to firearms and component manufacturers in states such as Connecticut, Maryland and Colorado that have been enacting stricter gun-control laws, became more personally involved in recent days.
Perry took the opportunity provided by the NRA’s annual meeting in Houston to meet one-on-one with several executives to tell them their companies would be more than welcome to relocate to the Lone Star State.
Connecticut-based Stag Arms President Mark Malkowski said he was impressed with what he heard from friendly Texans, both officially and unofficially encouraging him to move his modern sporting rifle manufacturing operations.
