Gunmaker moving to Wyoming

Gunmaker moving to Wyoming

Gun maker Stag Arms leaving Connecticut for Wyoming


The Associated Press - November 20, 2019

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. - Gun maker Stag Arms says it's moving from Connecticut to a more "business-friendly" environment in Wyoming.

The company announced Monday that it will be moving all its operations from New Britain, Connecticut, to Cheyenne, Wyoming, over the next several months.

The AR-15 rifle maker had announced in June that it would be leaving Connecticut for somewhere else that offered "significant support for the firearms industry."

New Britain Mayor Erin Stewart has said the move wasn't a surprise, because Stag Arms has been courted by other states since Connecticut passed stricter gun laws after the 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown.

The company said in a statement that Wyoming is a top destination for hunting and shooting sports, which "reflects its citizens' unwavering support for the Second Amendment."
