Rockland’s loss is Pike County’s gain

Kahr Firearms Officially Relocates to Pike County

10314528_756481221051301_2483917220977114740_nKahr Arms, an internationally-known firearms manufacturer, relocated from Rockland County, New York to Pike County, Pennsylvania last month as a result of the SAFE Act gun control package in New York. The Firearms Group held a ceremony in Pike Country to mark the beginning of a five-year relocation project on a 620-acre property located about 40 miles east of Scranton.

Kahr was among several firearms manufacturers that last year announced plans to pull out of New York State in the months following Governor Cuomo’s signing of the SAFE Act, a restrictive anti-gun legislation.

In other news, the company has joined as a sponsor for Vetstock 2014.

“We’re very honored to have Kahr Arms onboard as a sponsor,” said Tom Ryan, Vetstock Coordinator. “The Vetstock committee is just as passionate for the support for the First and Second Amendments.”

Vetstock weekend will begin on Friday, July 11 with the inauguration of the Wall of Remembrance, a 6-foot-tall, 94-foot-long, two-sided display that features the names of every victim of the terrorist attacks and military personnel killed from successive conflicts.

Funds from Vetstock will once again benefit Homes For Troops, a national American non-profit organization that builds specially adapted homes for disabled veterans.
