Voting with their feet and their wallet?

Gun manufacturer Looking Into Rockingham County Facility

Ruger's CEO has stated that he intends to build FOUR brand-new gun factories, nationwide. They sold over 1 million guns last year and simply can't even come close to keeping up with buyer demand.

(I wish they'd get into the cartridge business and build a facility that stamped out nothing but .22LR ammunition.)

'Pervier says they're preparing a "substantial" incentives package but wouldn't give any details.'

The best incentives package is low taxation and regulation generally, not carving out some exception for a single company (just another form of fascism). I hate it when local governments go whoring themselves, but as Mencken put it, "A professional politician is a professionally dishonorable man. In order to get anywhere near high office he has to make so many compromises and submit to so many humiliations that he becomes indistinguishable from a streetwalker."
