Firearms Accessories Company Abandons CO To Protest Law

Those restrictions are getting expensive


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."
