Unhappy about new limits, gun makers urged to move

Posted:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Firearms manufacturers upset over gun laws and proposals are getting a message from other states: Move here, where the climate is favorable to your products and so are the tax codes.

Politicians in Virginia and West Virginia have said they would welcome Beretta if it chose to leave Maryland. Alaska's House speaker has written a resolution encouraging gun makers to consider doing business in the state.

In New Hampshire, conservative Republicans have sent letters wooing two gun companies that have voiced frustration with proposed gun laws that they say could hurt business.

Several states are considering or have passed tighter gun legislation in the wake of the mass killings in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., last year.
