Connecticut gun maker moving to South Carolina, in wake of tighter state gun laws

Whoo hoo! Way to go South Carolina!

Published June 19, 2013

A Connecticut gun manufacturer is moving to South Carolina after Connecticut lawmakers passed stricter gun-control laws in the aftermath of the fatal Sandy Hook School shootings.

PTR Industries will make the formal announcement next week at a ribbon-cutting to be attended by South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley, according to The Sun News of Myrtle Beach.

The company is going to Horry County, which includes Myrtle Beach, and has already approved a resolution setting out the terms of the company’s move.

County Council Chairman Mark Lazarus says he’s excited about the development.

Josh Fiorini, PTR’s chief executive officer, says the plant will employ 140 people, many of whom will relocate from Connecticut. The move will take place over three years.

The company said it had been contacted by 41 states and selected South Carolina from six finalists.

Mental Health and the 2nd Amendment

The case years ago brings to attention some important issues today.

Summing up my observation of this particular mentally ill woman was she was never a threat to anyone, including me. If anything she was her own worst enemy.

During those weeks of following her around, I was never told she had hurt or harmed anyone. For the most part she wanted attention, love or affection.

Her husband told me long before this uncontrollable event he had given her a gun to keep with her; for her own safety. He had trained her himself as to how to use it.

It made sense to me as he was gone a lot so I never questioned it.

The truth is while she was medicated there would have been no reason whatsoever for me or anyone else to believe she would not be responsible in using a pistol for self-defense.

However, when un-medicated she was not responsible for anything much less using a gun.

Where do you draw the line?317512_351786084931609_1113885996_n

She was alone much of the time.

Her husband felt she could handle a gun knowing her condition.

I knew them for over a year before there was any reason for me to think she was mentally ill.

The question arises who is responsible?

Who should be able to own a gun?

There are many nut jobs out there. We hear about them every day now.

Maybe the question should be who should not own a gun?

Let’s see:


Doctor ordered cases of Psychiatry/Psychology or Counseling or the Aged such as those with Dementia/Alzheimer’s/etc.

Registered Sex offenders


Questionable foreigners?

The list is all well and good but 3 on that list will get a gun no matter what if they want one bad enough.

One thing I do know is it is not the government’s job.

The family is or should be responsible for each other.

If not, the local community, counselors, doctors, Pastors, lawyers or law enforcement.

The real answer? Get right with God.

This discussion wouldn’t be necessary if that happened.

On who’s Authority?

If anyone has any doubts about some of the Senate Democrats true position it was brought to light this past week.

Those up for re-election in November decided against the Gun Control law proposed because they live in states where hunting and the NRA are prominent.

Instead of going along with the President and other gun control leaders, these Senators placed their political aspirations above what the government would consider “safety provisions.”

What happened to Gabby Giffords was unconscionable. From a personal standpoint she appears to be a very nice person; the kind you would want for a friend or neighbor.

In a noticeable defeat, the President had her stand beside him as he angrily attacked the Senators in his party for what they termed as “betrayal.”

“Shame on you” he barks.

Gabby Giffords was heard saying later, “I am angry. Senators who blocked the bill are cowards.”

Since her attack, it has been discovered how mentally ill the perpetrator was and is.

Alongside of Jared Lee Loughner are James Holmes and Adam Lanza.  All 3 with serious deranged and psychotic issues.

Imagining her recovery is difficult to comprehend. She is a fighter with a spirit of strength to go with it. I admire her guts and willingness to get up every day with what must be problematic and challenging issues.528203_10200839733576268_350914574_n

However, gun background checks would not have stopped what Jared Lee Loughner set out to do.

Gallup: Only 4% of Americans think gun control is an important problem

A criminal is not going to abide by the law and neither is an unbalanced lunatic.

The appearance of the use of other weapons such as knives and bombs in recent attacks make gun control of no use and a violation of our 2nd Amendment rights.

The ripple effect of mood has centered on the depressive, negative animosity from the Obama administration. As he stands in front of American’s sulking over a loss of what he deems is right according to him, is an embarrassment.

His arrogant nature has been hard for his own party to deal with. His willful scolding’s to tell the people of this country what to do is not an accepted approach nor is it pliable. He works for us; we don’t work for him.

The hypocrisy of his agenda is he cannot take what he dishes out. As his own party defected on this gun bill he received the same from them as he has done to so many of us.

Politics as usual only this time it was not in his favor.72683_10200832032063735_1454748188_n

For the most part I agree with Bruce Willis. He is against gun control and infringement upon our 2nd Amendment rights. However he does not believe violence and crime in Hollywood/movies/TV should be seen as an influence. I beg to differ; I believe we are definitely influenced by what we see, hear and watch.


“If you don’t have a Sword, Sell your Cloak and go buy one”

The following is a list of NRA National Organizations with Anti Gun Policies


After reading through it, I was angered by those involved in movies and TV who have made fortunes off of violence. The fact that guns or weapons are used and yet these actors are outspoken against using them in the civilian culture is hypocrisy at its worst.

Actors like Kevin Bacon, Richard Belzer, Benjamin Bratt, Sylvester Stallone,Steve Buscemi,George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, Andy Garcia, Louis Gossett, Jr., Mark Harmon, Robert Redford, and Sean Connery to name a few have made millions using some form of armed weapon on the big screen or TV.matt damon

The list goes on and on of companies like Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, the YWCA and Hallmark Cards who share this fight on gun control.

Many listed are multimedia companies or connections to the movie and TV industry. They don’t have a problem luring people to watch on-screen bloodshed and savagery as long as they make money. Yet, the real world should be absent of protecting families, schools and neighborhoods
with anything armed or considered a gun.

Instead of restricting use of our 2nd Amendment rights, why aren’t Diane Feinstein and her cronies going after Hollywood? In the last 40 years there is a marked difference in the programs on TV and movies.

Did Andy and Barney use foul language?

John Wayne and the “Rifleman” used rifles and guns; but only to fight evil.

Can you imagine sexually explicit scenes on “I love Lucy” or Mary Tyler Moore?

And what about teaching the Gay Lifestyle on “Leave it to Beaver” or “Eight is Enough?”

Today I received in the mail a letter from Franklin Graham of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. The purpose was to get the word out that restricting guns will not stop bad people from doing bad things. It was clear the emphasis should be placed on the mental health of our country.

The BGEA immediately sent a Rapid Response team the day of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting. They are presently training 10,000 trainers across the country to aid in servicing churches in a program called “My Hope.” Our country is in desperate need of a massive change to fight off the evil that has invaded us.grahams

The summary of the letter was and I quote, “The problem –the real crux of the issue-lies not in the instruments of violence used, but in the evil and depraved heart of man.”

When Jesus wrote Luke 22:36 about selling your cloak to buy a sword, he meant it for protection and to fight off the enemy. He warned us of “wars and rumors of wars” along with the everyday battles of life. He gave us the right
to protect ourselves and our families by using weapons.

He would rather our hearts be changed to eliminate the assault of hatred and disorder caused by those who harbor such emotions, but he knows what we deal with.

And God said,

Psalm 120:7 “I am a man of peace; but when I speak, they are for war.”
