Republican Politicans Court Gun Manufacturers From Gun Control States

As gun manufacturers look to leave states passing strict gun control laws, Republican politicians are courting them for their states.

2. Texas Governor Rick Perry

3. Maine Governor Paul LePage in a WSJ Op-Ed

Beretta, Colt, Magpul and any others: In Maine you will find air, rail and seaports that can carry your exceptional products across the country and across the globe. You will find hardworking Mainers, and you will find a governor who is ready to provide incentives and guarantees that will make it attractive for you to set up shop in our state.

I will never sign anti-gun legislation that erodes the rights of Maine citizens, drives your business away or infringes on the U.S. Constitution or the State of Maine Constitution.

Come to where you are welcome and where you will be appreciated. Come to Maine. I’ll even throw in some lobster.
