Three cheers for Connecticut! Colt, the firearm manufacturer of the AR-15, is packing up its wares. It is leaving the Constitution State and Gov. Dannel Malloy for the Lone Star State and Gov. Rick Perry.
As the story goes, Texas got the Lone Star moniker in a nationwide survey investigating the average intelligence of its people and its governors. It used a rating of one lone star to 1,000 stars, with one being the least intelligent and 1,000 the most, or at least that is what I heard.
Gun makers Stag and Mossberg, located in Connecticut, will likely also leave Connecticut and head for Texas. Proud Connecticut has reason to feel even prouder and Texas will have one more weapon maker within its borders.
Perhaps if enough of them relocate to Texas, they will have enough firepower to finally secede from the Union, as they have threatened to ad nauseam.
