There are some ‘ifs’ in this poconorecord.com article on Karh Arms’ potential move out of the Empire State. But scribe Beth Brelje includes enough kinda somewhat they look like definitive statements to make a Kahr Arms exodus sound probable. The gunco’s currently headquartered in deep in the heart of SAFE Act land: Blauvelt, New York. Their production facility is in the equally inhospitable Worcester, Massachusetts. Two states that have made it abundantly clear that gun makers, their products and their customers aren’t welcomed. If the report at Pocono Record article is to be believed . . .
the 70-mile move from Blauvelt to Pike County, Pennsylvania would be a relative hop, skip and a jump for company brass. Yanking the manufacturing operation out of the Bay State would, of course, be a little more involved.
Already the company has hired engineering, legal and real estate firms to work on the project. It is conducting an executive search for an operations manager to oversee the building phase.
And that’s not all . . .
Some company executives who will work at the new offices have already purchased homes in Pike County, (Kahr spokesman Frank) Harris said.
If Kahr goes through with the move, Governors Cuomo and Patrick will see the first significant fallout of their post-Newtown civilian disarmament enthusiasms. It couldn’t happen to two nicer people.
