More and more Americans are making the choice to get out of blue states while they still can. Blue states are defunding the police, making legal gun ownership harder, treating criminals with kid gloves, and passing one stringent edict after the other.
This all comes on top of sky high taxes, homelessness problems, unaffordable living costs, anti-business regulations, and more. It’s not just individual Americans leaving blue states for their red counterparts, either; businesses are following suit.
This week, Smith & Wesson announced that their headquarters and operations are leaving Massachusetts for Tennessee.
What to know about Smith & Wesson’s transition
The gun organization’s decision to relocate to Tennessee comes due to gun control laws in Massachusetts. The nature of these laws are so strict they’d block Smith & Wesson from creating and selling popular products.
For Smith & Wesson, this would severely devastate their business; therefore, the company is leaving for a state that is much more gun-friendly. It’s worth noting over the past 18 months, demand for guns has soared as more Americans buy them for the first time.
