By moving South to pay less taxes...

Good move.

The dem-0-Rats they ruin buisness for all by taxing people to death.

Lots of companies move to Texas for that reason.

Movies are starting to be made in Texas because of low taxes.

I wished Marlin or some other gun company would move to Alabama. I know that they would be welcomed with open arms.

I think everyone expected something like that when they got bought.

I do not like this whole consolidation thing in the firearms industry.

True. I have quite a few friends/co-workers that have been laid off the past year. A lot of them have been working 20 hour days in transportation division of the movie industry. We have a few tv shows and a couple big movies being filmed in north Texas right now. Glad to see it coming. We need the work down here and the pay is awesome. I been hoping to get laidoff so I could go get on one of the shows and drive crew members around and make a big paycheck.

I imagine the unions up there are playing a role in this as well. It won't shock me if another big industry name decides to head south...I've heard a rumbling or two about another possible move. :whistling:

I wondered how long it would take for unions to be brought up:upeyes:

Roll your eyes if you like. I don't care either way in terms of unions, point being though I also don't own a business as large as Marlin's. The unions play into the bottom line of a business plain and simple, sometimes sharply so. Don't know if that's the case with Marlin, but I wouldn't be surprised for it to be a factor in the decision either.

Not sure if it has anything to do with it but I read an article that that there was a fire at the NH plant. May be easier and cheaper for them to just move the whole operation.

HEY MARLIN!!! COLT!!! Smith&Wesson!!! Winchester!!!

COME TO TEXAS! We would be mighty happy if you can and would roll out the red carpet.

It's a 'Right to Work' state to. No INCOME TAX.

I think I shot more rounds through a Marlin .22 between the ages of 6-12 than combined of all my other guns and it still shoots straight! My uncle always said boy you are gonna melt that barrel as much as you shoot haha.

This is the only way the message will be received. Businesses start moving to low tax places. People move to where the work is. High taxed states are forced to lower taxes to bring back business and workers. Good for Marlin. I hope to see more businesses doing this.
