The Pocono Record Says Kahr, owners of the Thompson, Auto Ordnance, and Magnum Research Lines, is leaving New York for Pennsylvania:
A gun manufacturer is considering buying the entire 620-acre Pike County business park for $2 million to escape an unfriendly gun climate in New York.
Kahr Firearms Group would move its corporate headquarters from in Pearl River, N.Y., to Pike County, bringing a some 100 jobs, company spokesman Frank Harris said.
“We were ready to sign a deal in rural Orange County, N.Y. But when the governor passed stricter gun control, it made it tough to continue on that path, so we jumped over the river,” Harris said.
“New York has become very unfriendly to people in the gun business. We feel like we are being treated like criminals in New York. That is one of the reasons we are coming to Pennsylvania.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo rammed through a blatantly unconstitutional NY SAFE Act, and is losing Kahr and its tax revenues as a result. It couldn’t happen to a more fitting tyrant.
Note: Yeah, I meant “funmaker.”
