Welcome to the Gunshine State! You can hear the screams of horror emanating from Broward County.  Pompano Beach is right smack in the middle of Congressional District 20 held by US Rep. Alcee Hastings (Dem, Rated F) which got it redistricted from Debbie Wasserman Schulz. (Dem, Rated F, Not all Up There). Somebody drove a stake down the middle of Liberal Broward County’s heart.

Hat Tip to Eric W. who wonders if they will be offering tours…

  1. I never understood the mentality of running a firearm manufacturing operation in a Democrat controlled area. Most of the major manufacturers are in states like NY, CT, etc. The Dem’s hate your business (even though they like the tax monies from it). Why wouldn’t they pick a location more amenable to their cause?

    They settled in the middle of a Dem controlled county. The county/precinct has historically voted Dem for years. Why reward your political enemy (and the constituents who vote for them) with tax money (and jobs)?

  2. To heck with tours. I want free samples!

    One of the things that stands out when you look at the so-called “red state/blue state” divide is that the blue areas are big cities, almost without exception. Any city they would have gone to is probably going to be a democratic district. For reasons we can only speculate on, smaller city or small town folks are more independent, while bigger cities attract people who want everything provided for them.

    So why would a gun company go to a large city at all? My guess is for the numbers of workers. although maybe they just like big city conditions (shudder).

    A few years ago, Colt said they were going to open a facility in Kissimmee (for non-Florida folks – a small town just outside of Orlando). Of course, we’ve all heard about Colt’s problems and (AFAIK) they never really moved in and got going. Elsewhere, KelTec is in Cocoa, another small city, Interordnance (AK and AR pattern manufacturer) moved to Palm Bay, and SCCY is in Daytona. Of these, Daytona is the only one that remotely can be considered a big city, but it’s less than 2/3 the size of Pompano. As far as I can recall, they’re reliably a blue city, too.

    So, yo!, gun makers. Move to smaller cities. You’ll be more welcome.
