SigSauer U.S. layoffs

Christian Lowe — July 15, 2014

Major U.S. gun manufacturer Sig Sauer announced a major layoff today, saying the overall slump in gun sales has forced it to cut nearly 10 percent of its staff from its Exeter, New Hampshire, and Newington, New Hampshire, manufacturing facilities.

The move comes as the firearms buying “bubble” has seemingly burst, with many major gun manufacturers reporting slower sales than previous years. Sig says it staffed up to meet the increasing demand for firearms over the last several years, but a return to “normal” sales made those employees no longer necessary.

“The firearms market has begun to cool from the record highs experienced over the past couple of years,” Sig said in a release. “Additional resources, including new employees, were brought on to help meet this spike in demand. Now that sales have began to return to normal, an adjustment in staff numbers is needed to maintain an efficient and cost-effective workflow.”

Obama has 2 1/2 more years, and if we get another gun grabber Dem in the Whitehouse sales will be booming again!

Shoot straight

People are sick of politicians, and me, I hate cats in the house.
