Gunmaker Ditches Connecticut After Passage of Draconian Laws

Seeks more freedom elsewhere

A Connecticut gunmaker has announced it intends to leave the state following the passage of gun control legislation it says tramples on the rights of citizens and does not show enough consideration for the industry.

Bristol-based PTR says in a statement posted on its website that it has not decided where it will move, but it has commitments from most employees to relocate. The company makes military-style rifles and employs more than 40 people.
