With the Defense Budget cuts that have been made, OSHKOSH TRUCK, a major company in the area that I live, announced that they will be laying off about 900 employees by this July. Of this, 200 would be office and 700 plant people. They reported that the "defense" plant will be closing. Oshkosh also makes fire trucks and other heavy vehicles and employs about 3,000 people. That means that one third of their work force will be cut.

If you think that is bad, think about the other companies in this area and other places around America that support the business. Everything from nut & bolts to sheet metal and welding supplies, tires, tools etc.

Colt pulled it's AR15 manufacturing from Connecticut and moved it to Texas and most likely the rest of the business will follow in the future. Magpul says it is moving it's manufacturing from Colorado, they make large capacity magazines. Barretta is moving it's facilities out of Maryland because of gun laws in that state.

They don't care ... disarm the citizens, beat them down until they need to rely on the government for everything. That's what this administration is all about.
