Good riddance to gun makers

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.

Promises, promises.

But Lou from Bayside, I heard the same story about how Texas got it's lone star. I checked it out and it's true. I thought everyone knew. Some areas in Texas still have loads of Lou from Baysides but they're getting rarer and rarer. It used to be the place where intelligence went to die but more and more people from the colder Northeast have settled there in the warmer climate and that has help bring the state closer to this century. Pretty soon they will even stop rewritng scool books to suit their stinted vision.

Just a matter of time, Lou from Bayside, just a matter of time.

I just love how all the antigunners are the first ones to beg on the phone and call 911 when an intruder enters their house....BEGGING for the police to show up armed with a Glock, Colt, Sig Sauer, Beretta, S&W or Ruger. When the Latin Kings, MS 13 , Bloods and Crypts turn in their weapons and register their AKs I will as well. I wonder if they will perform background checks on these gang members when they need ammo. wake up you bunch of retards.
There will always be good and evil on this Earth.

If Colt wants to leave Ct, that's an economic decision. Let them take Lou from Bayside with them to Texas. He'll learn that Texans ain't too happy about Northerners from New York commin to their state, but he will have the ability to shoot off his guns and mouth with more compandres. Then Lou can complain about all the Mexicans and illegals living in his neighborhood.
