    I don’t see how a current owner selling a M1A or any other of their products is going to hurt the company. If a current owner does sell a Springfield firearm because of what the company did, the new owners might want more magazines and other accessories that may potentially give Springfield more business.

    That would of course be ideal but I'd bet it was an easier move for Magpul than it would be for SA.

    I don't understand why gun companies would stay in red commie states like NJ, MA, CT, and IL to begin with.

    BTW, how many here still buy S&W and Colts, and what twisted logic do you use to justify it?

    Throw Ruger in there as well.

    I'll buy any Springfield or RRA guns for $1. It will cost me more than that to dispose of them properly.
    I heard it on the Internet, it must be true.

    If you want better laws elect better politicitions.

    And I don't mean perfect politicitions, just better.

After all they have customers in 40+ other states to consider and you can't fight for our rights if your too busy fighting to keep your business open.
    Except it was NOT going to pass regardless. They gave the cover it needed to pass. Besides, even if it was, then you move your company. The end goal of the people writing this type of legislation is to put your company out of business. Throwing your customers under the bus to sort of (but not really) protect your employees and business is a lose-lose game. You'll lose your business either because customers hate your company or because the anti-gunners put you out of business.

    http://www.ar15.com/forums/t_1_5/198...ge=5#i65825354 (swanhunter is heavily involved in the IL gun law scene)

    And also based on Springfield's non-denial statement, it seems true.
