American Tactical Imports – More Firearms Jobs Heads South in the Wake of New York Tyranny


On Monday American Tactical Imports announced that it was leaving the State of New York and moving to an environment that is friendlier to gun owners, dealers and manufacturers.

In an economy where the fight for jobs is brutal, this is yet another loss that New York cannot afford but it is a nice addition to the community of Summerville, SC. The move is to happen in November of 2013 so they seem to be wasting no time.

ATI is largely an importer and distributor of domestic firearms, although they do some manufacturing. They plan to move from Rochester to Summerville, a city on the outskirts of Charleston, starting next month.

They are bringing 117 jobs to Dorchester County between their headquarters, assembly, customer service and sales teams. The company said it will be investing $2.7 million in jobs and facilities.

While the company’s primary decision to relocate is to operate in a state with strong support of the Second Amendment, the move offers some logistical benefits to ATI as well. As an importer this brings the company closer to the shipping lanes it relies on for product deliveries. The Charleston area is home to some of the largest and busiest ports on the Atlantic seaboard.

And though it is not yet official, Remington is considering leaving Ilion, NY (where they forged their first rifle in in 1816). That is 197 years of history that could be coming to an end because of the widely controversial SAFE Act. Steven Ahle reports that some gun manufacturers, in states that are unfriendly toward the 2nd Amendment, have already seen a 10% drop in sales because of customer boycotts.

I feel for the people of New York who respect the 2nd Amendment, but are losing jobs due to poor representation.

I think if I were living in New York, I would be thinking about doing the same thing these companies are doing and getting out while I could.
