Although separate, the two companies continued to occupy the same space on New Park Avenue in West Hartford.Dinkel said the decision was not related to recent changes in the state's gun laws, prompted by the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December.Although tougher restrictions on assault-style weapons were not supported by Colt, company business has yet to be impacted, Dinkel said. The company plans to remain in West Hartford, but Dinkel said Colt will continue to monitor the situation. At least one company, PTR Industries in Bristol, has announced it will move to South Carolina, and other gun manufacturers have said they are considering leaving Connecticut."The bigger the company, the harder it is to move," Dinkel said, but he added: "It all remains to be seen."
"Remains to be seen"?!? What will it look like when they have to gaze past the bodies of dead Connecticut citizens killed by the forces of state violence over their possession of Colt products? Is THAT what "remains to be seen?"
