    Rick Perry taking all the gun jobs to TX

    Why Connecticut? Especially when, compared with Texas, Connecticut's current job picture is much more dire, at 8.0 percent in April?

    The answer is guns.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • This is not as easy as it sounds on paper to do, as the manufacture of guns is a somewhat of a labor intense situation that requires skilled tool and die and machine shop workers. This has been one of the reasons the gun industry has - for the most part - stayed where they are, and that is because of the history of having these skilled workers where they are. First their is the physical cost of moving all of this equipment and technology and those workes that would even want to move to TX. Then even if they did move, not all would go, so their would need to be retraining and I can assure you that quality would take a hit for some time.

      Sentiment: Hold
