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.

    1. Texas is a right-to-work state. Taxes are low to begin with, and no state income tax. We have our own power grid if GE isn’t allowed to disassemble it. As an adperson, I’ve spent most of my career around manufacturing companies.
      In 2005 Perry passed a whole range of “Katrina legislation” stating that police or military cannot take people’s guns like in Louisiana.

    2. Texas has had some fine people as governor Ann Richards being the most endearing how ever I believe Governor Perry is the most freedom loving indivual that has ever held office. I remember how he handle a threatening tornado that ruined Galveston he warned that there would be no Katrina behavior and we had the most smooth evacuation in history. He has a stiff look about him but he is the most reasonable man that has ever held that executive office. He makes me proud to live in Texas even though I love Louisiana. Maybe he should give lessons to Gendal who sickens me.

    3. While Texas may be GUN friendly, they continue to have DEM’s elected just like other states. I think Texas can do better the Perry.

    4. Gov.Perry will get most these firearms related businesses down here to Texas because we are very pro Constitution in the Lone Star State and nobody even think about taking our weapons !!!! HBH
