For the record. Colt already has a plant in FL and S&W has a facility in ME.
Ruger makes most of their guns in NH and AZ and have for years.
S&W had a manufacturing plant in Rochester NH, they closed it years ago and moved that production line to Springfield. In hindsight, that may not have been such a great move.
Then it should be fairly easy for them to move their corporate offices out of CT if the actual manufacturing is already in other states.
How far will this go? The realignment of America really has begun and could possibly set the stage for something more drastic. Bad times are coming.
Smith and Wesson is a publically traded company. If and this is a big "if" the shareholders vote to move....well, I don't see that that they would have much choice. The price of thier stock is "high" as of this writing but...I'm sure many of the shareholders are "shooters".
