kahr-arms-2Kahr Firearms Group of Pearl River, has announced that they will be leaving NY state for the friendlier confines of Pennsylvania.  They intend to begin initially with 10 members of the corporate staff.  Eventually, they plan to have 100 manufacturing employees.  Kahr is owned by  Kook-Jin Justin Moon, a son of Unification Church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

Frank Harris, Kahr’s vice president for sales and marketing, explained the move this way:

‘‘We’re looking for a more friendly environment for our business.  ‘Maybe we could  have stayed here and built a plant, but the way the bill was passed left us  feeling there were a lot of uncertainties going forward.’’

‘‘Why take a chance when we can be in a state where they’re not looking to  cause us any problems?’’

The new gun laws in New York calls for expanded restriction on military style weapons, requires mental health doctors to report anything they find threatening, limits magazines to seven bullets and taxes ammunition.
