Gunmaker HiViz leaves Colorado for Wyoming over new laws

DENVER — A Colorado firearms company has found a new home across the border in Wyoming, protesting the recent passage of restrictive new guns laws.

HiViz Shooting Systems announced Thursday that it will move its core operations from Fort Collins, Colo., to Laramie, Wyo. That’s about an hour’s drive, but light years away in terms of state gun policy.

HiViz becomes the first gun-related manufacturing company to pick up stakes since Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed three sweeping gun-control laws in March. Other firearms manufacturers, including Magpul Industries, have indicated that they will relocate in response to the legislation.

Colorado Republicans, who opposed the gun-control bills, accused Democrats of killing jobs in pursuit of a liberal social agenda. Democrats control both houses of the state legislature and passed the gun-control bills with no Republican votes.
