Weatherby has announced that it's leaving anti-gun California to move to Wyoming. Unfortunately, this has become a trend as California's gun laws grow more and more ridiculous by the day.
Via the Daily Caller:
Gun manufacturer Weatherby announced at Shot Show Tuesday the company planned to leave its longtime California headquarters and move to Sheridan, Wyoming in 2019.
“This is a really exciting day for us. About three years ago after being in California for 75 years, we began a search amongst a number of Western states to find a new home for Weatherby,” CEO Adam Weatherby told media and employees on the floor of the firearms trade show.
He added, “It was obvious being in the state that we were in that the legacy wasn’t going to be able to continue for as long as we wanted it to. We began to look for a new state.”
California’s restrictive exorbitant tax and regulations on guns resulted in the company’s decision to leave the state. Weatherby is among a string of major firearm manufacturers to leave gun restrictive states after many years.
Weatherby’s announcement comes on the heels of the California legislature’s further gun control laws that have passed in recent years, which include background checks for ammunition purchases and the prohibition of magazines that hold 10 or more rounds.
