Rochester-area firearms firm moving to S.C.

In the wake of word that a Rochester-area firearms and ammunition company is moving to South Carolina, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association this morning offered up this headline on a press release: “NYSRPA asks if legislators are still proud of their SAFE Act votes?”

With quotes from their governor, South Carolina officials this week announced that American Tactical Imports is leaving the Rochester area to move down south.The company said it, in part, wanted to be in a state it considered friendlier to Second Amendment rights.
