“Gov. Cuomo’s tough new gun law has put a target on the state’s gun makers. Cities, counties and states from across the country have been making lucrative pitches to New York’s firearms companies, urging them to relocate. Their argument: They have a gun-friendly atmosphere, and New York does not. “They receive solicitations . . . on almost a daily basis,” said Lawrence Kean, senior vice president and general counsel of the National Shooting Sports Foundation, a trade group. “CEOs have told me they could basically move their factories for free.” … Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, said New York’s gun industry is teetering and any new laws, especially a bill favored by Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg to require the microstamping of all bullets, so the bullets could be traced to their original owners, could spell the end …”
