[Video] Stag Arms Looking into Moving Out of Connecticut and Also Making CT Compliant AR-15
Stag Arms is one of the larger producers of AR-15 style rifles in the US. They are one of very few companies who actually make an upper receiver designed for left handed shooters.
Stag is based in Connecticut which just passed some of the strictest gun laws in the country. This includes effectively banning most semi auto rifles, such as the AR-15.
Stag Arms said they would likely leave the state if the gun control legislation passed, which it did.
Stag says they are still considering moving and are in negotiations with other state governments.
According to local media:
As for leaving Connecticut, officials with Stag Arms said it is still an option. Last week, Malkowski said he met with the governor of Texas and next week, the governor of Kansas.
In the meantime the rifle maker is looking into modifying the AR platform to make a Connecticut compliant version of the rifle.
“We are carefully looking at the new law and there are some things we interpret to be legal,” said Stag Arms owner Mark Malkowski. “We have gotten a lot of feedback from our customers and they have given us ideas for changes.”
Modifying the AR platform is popular in states with strict weapons bans, such as California.
We applaud Stag for trying to keep law abiding CT citizens armed.
