Daugaard Courting Gun Manufacturers In Connecticut

Daugaard Courting Gun Manufacturers In Connecticut

Governor Dennis Daugaard is in Connecticut trying to lure gun manufacturers to the state.  The push follows the introduction of new gun restrictions in Connecticut.  On Monday, the governor flew to Connecticut to meet with the representatives of Stag Firearms and Mossberg & Sons where he pitched South Dakota as a haven for an industry that has faced increasing scrutiny after a gunman killed 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., in December. Tuesday, Daugaard will meet with representatives of another gun manufacturer.  Daugaard said that South Dakota not only offers a better business environment, but its history and culture made it a perfect fit for gun manufacturers.
