so the 400 employees could go to the state capitol and talk to their representatives.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/c...3399_story.html

Quote:
HARTFORD, Conn. ó The president of one of the nationís oldest gun manufacturers closed down his Connecticut factory Thursday morning and bused 400 of his workers to the state Capitol so they could personally urge lawmakers not to pass gun control legislation that they say could risk their livelihoods.

Dennis Veilleux, president of the Hartford-based Coltís Manufacturing Co., said even though he has spoken with legislators and Gov. Dannel P. Malloyís staff about his trepidations several times, he believes they donít truly understand the financial ramifications of the legislation being proposed in the wake of the deadly Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

I certainly do not have any issues with them moving their plant to Texas and I wouldn't blame them if they did, however they need to stand their ground and not let the idiots run them out of their homes. Vote their butts out of friggin office for crying out loud!

All these freedom hating liberals should have to go live in a country that has already made the mistakes that they are trying to make. I bet they beg to come back and change their opinion.

I am not sure that would be a accurate statement. Look at Chavez now that he is dead millions are mourning his passing. Some lepards will never change their spots.
