NEWTOWN, Conn –-(Ammoland.com)- O.F. Mossberg & Sons Senior Vice President and General Counsel Joe Bartozzi in an op-ed essay in the New Haven Register challenged Connecticut incumbent Gov. Dannel Malloy about his ongoing campaign against the firearms industry.

Not content with having signed into law some of the most restrictive anti-gun legislation in the nation in 2013 when he attacked a historic state industry, Malloy continues to portray the industry as a villain.

In an editorial board interview at the paper the day after publication of Bartozzi’s op-ed, the governor would not back down ( tiny.cc/ilc3nx )  from his previous statements, citing industry opposition to the panacea of universal background checks.

Listen to the NSSF Connecticut radio commercial.

They could relocate but that takes some time plus to move the machinery and find replacement workers who are skilled if some CT workers can not relocate to another state.

Perhaps management is waiting to see who gets to sit in the Governor chair after the current term expires.

My heart goes out to the poor people that work for these good companies that have to uproot and move just to keep the jobs they’ve done so well for so long. I’ve had a few mossberg guns over the years, (lost in a tragic kayak accident) and found them to very well made guns. But I agree with not buying another until they get the “H” out of CT. CT voters, get this commie voted out of… Read more »

This jackbag isn’t moving the company out, so I don’t buy his product. I boycott any and all firearms companies that support evil by being in their states.

If I was a firearms dealers or ammo dealer I would ban all the anti gun states from purchasing anything including police. Maybe then when criminals and government collapse , people will wake up and realize that the right to bear arms is about the individual and not be trampled by oppressed states that are in fear of revolution. The highest taxed and cost of living states have the most restrictive firearm laws. Why an unarmed man is taxed oppressed easier. Property taxes are so outrageous how can you pay $8k a year in taxes to live in a house… Read more »

Management people of ANY company who allow their companies taxes and the Kajillions of dollars income tax and sales tax of their employees to REWARD an idiot police state like CT, probably deserve to have it all confiscated by the PRC (Peoples Republic of Con-no-etiquette! Good Lord–stop being so lazy and stupid. Move your compsny to the Free Republics of Oklahoma or Texas!
