FORT COLLINS—HiViz Shooting Systems will leave Colorado following gun control legislation passed by the state government last month.

The Fort Collins-based manufacturer of sights, recoil pads and other shooting accessories announced on its website that it is in talks with officials of a neighboring state regarding the move.

"I make this announcement with mixed emotions," said Phillip Howe, president and CEO of HiViz.  Colorado is a beautiful state with great people, but we cannot in clear conscience support with our taxes a state that has proven through recent legislation a willingness to infringe upon the constitutional rights of our customer base."
