The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that Taurus USA is looking relocate the company in order to expand their domestic production. Currently most of their guns are imported from their Brazilian parent company Forjas Taurus.
The reason: Police departments and other government agencies increasingly want their guns made in the United States, Taurus CEO Bob Morrison said.
While no decision has been made, Morrison praised Georgia’s efforts to lure the company.
“Gov. [Sonny] Perdue has been particularly anxious to extend the warm hand of Georgia,” Morrison said. “It’s a very attractive offer that he’s made. He’s gone way, way out of his way to try to get us to understand that Georgia is more than willing to have a firearms company move there.”
