Colorado – -(Ammoland.com)- As a result of the recent changes to the Colorado state gun control legislation, HiViz is announcing plans to move out of the state.
Talks are currently under way with officials of a neighboring state regarding the move.
Phil Howe, HiViz President and CEO stated, “I make this announcement with mixed emotions. 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.”
He notes that prior to the changes in law in Colorado, he made several attempts to persuade state officials via emails and telephone calls to proceed slowly with gun control legislation that would impact individual shooters and the shooting industry as a whole.
Although the relocation will be expensive and time consuming, he adds, “It is in the best interest of our company and our customers.”
Starting with corporate headquarters, the operations will be moved over an extended period of time ensuring no interruption of services to its customer base, and HiViz states that the majority of its employees will make the move with the corporate operations. More details regarding the location and timing of the relocation will be announced as details are finalized.
