Smith & Wesson Announce Relocation From Massachusetts To Tennessee Due To Proposed Gun Laws

SPRINGFIELD, MASSACHUSETTS — Smith & Wesson announced today that they will be moving their headquarters to Tennesse, leaving their base in Springfield where they’ve been since 1852.

The reason behind the move is based on proposed legislation that would severely limit their abilities to manufacturer under these new laws.

“These bills would prevent Smith & Wesson from manufacturing firearms that are legal in almost every state in America and that are safely used by tens of millions of law-abiding citizens every day exercising their Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights, protecting themselves and their families, and enjoying the shooting sports,” Mark Smith, president and CEO of Smith & Wesson, said in a statement.

Some jobs will remain in Massachusetts.

It’s a sign of the times, I guess, and Smith & Wesson is being proactive and removing themselves from a state that doesn’t appreciate or fully understand the 2nd Amendment.

The move is expected to begin in 2023.
