Acappella 1 HudsonTexas and Mississippi are trying to lure gun and ammunition makers to their states claiming friendly, pro-gun environments.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Mississippi House Speaker Philip Gunn, both Republicans, have made overtures to Colorado-based Magpul Industries and other manufacturers, suggesting that they relocate.
Magpul, a manufacturer of ammunition magazines for firearms, has threatened to leave Colorado if the state enacts a ban on high-capacity magazines.
Perry, who reportedly sent letters to 26 firearms and ammunition manufacturers earlier this month, told Magpul that there is no other state “that fits the definition of business-friendly like Texas,” according to the Denver Post.
Not to mention “gun-friendly.”
