Kahr Arms makes wikkid pissa guns. Not submachine guns, as wnep.com reports in its article about the company’s move from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania (their Auto-Ordnance Thompson TI replica is semi-automatic.). But there’s nothing wrong and a lot right with the Kahr Arms PM9: a small, reliable, appropriately-calibered (9mm) handguns that’s ergonomically sound. Anyway, the Unification Church-owned gunmaker has opened its Pike County manufacturing facility. Despite the usual cringe-worthy sops to gun control, WNEP pens an appropriately celebratory piece; the kind of article you’d never expect from a Bay State paper. Like this:
The owners picked Pike County because, according to them, they want to be where it’s gun friendly, and where half the county residents are members of the NRA.
Before long, Kahr Firearms plans to sell its handguns, sub-machine guns and more from inside a room at its new facility in the Pike County Business Park in Blooming Grove Township.
On this day, however, it was packed with staunch gun rights supporters for Kahr’s grand opening celebration.
“We are so inspired to be in this land, so different from other states in which we’ve been,” said Reverend Sean Moon [above], Sanctuary Church.
However? However what? The video at the link is worse; running a montage of mass shootings before introducing the local reporter. And what’s this doing here?
Company officials said the new headquarters and firearm plant will bring about 200 jobs by next year. Local leaders gave Kahr a tax break for five years, worth thousands of dollars. This helped to secure the move to this so-called “gun-friendly territory.”
“I’ve been a staunch supporter of second amendment, very pro gun, we live in a pro gun county,” said Pike County Sheriff Phil Bueki.
But in a country that’s endured unending gun violence, and in some cases, senseless mass shootings, Kahr is standing up against gun control efforts knowing it also has backing in Pennsylvania.
[Sean’s brother] Justin Moon added, “It’s the minority that keeps on saying we have an issue, issue is decided, we love freedom, we love our guns, we’re not going to give them up.”
Good for Justin! Bravo Sean! I could say something about the Dad’s church’s reputation as a brainwashing cult – not the kind of organization one normally associates with the love of liberty – but that would be indelicate. Suffice it to say, I carry the aforementioned 9mm mouse gun from time to time and love it to bits. Worshipfully, in fact.
