Amarillo Economic Development Corp. courts gun makers

Officials are working to lure gun manufacturers from the Northeast to Amarillo in the wake of gun-control legislation that is prompting many companies to consider leaving Connecticut and other states.

Buzz David, Amarillo Economic Development Corp. president, said Friday he just returned from a trip to gun manufacturers’ facilities in New York and Connecticut with Gov. Rick Perry.

David said he met with representatives of several gun manufacturers who have expressed an interest in possibly relocating operations to Texas.

“We are working on projects with several of those folks,” said David, who declined to name the companies, citing the sensitivity of the negotiations. More here.
