California has been singing “Take Your Jobs and Shove them, they ain’t working in progtopia no more” for quite some time. They’ve been singing that song in a variety of ways, mostly through extra burdensome regulations and draconian anti-prosperity taxes.
One other way they’ve been singing that song is in their anti-human, anti-liberty, anti-gun laws, which are chasing away the gun manufacturers. Joining the ranks of the ex-California gun manufacturers is Weatherby Inc, which is packing up its gear and heading east, to Wyoming, that is.

California-based firearms manufacturer will relocate to Sheridan, Wyo, as part of a multi-million dollar, publicly financed package to bring 70 to 90 jobs and a new industrial building to town, Gov. Matt Mead announced Tuesday.
Weatherby Inc., is a family-owned company that has operated out of Pasa Robles, Calif. since its founding in 1945. The company is bringing its management team and manufacturing operations into a new, 100,000-square-foot building at the Sheridan High-Tech Business Park, according to Mead’s office.
The Wyoming Business Council provided a $12.6 million grant to cover the majority of the project’s costs, administered by the Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority. The Sheridan group committed about $2.3 million, which includes cash and the value of the building lot.
The total price tag is about $14.7 million, according to the state.
Weathery will kick in about $2 million to relocate and cover all capital expenses for the building and lot over the life of the 20-year lease, which is expected to be more than $4 million, according to Mead’s office.
