Gunmaker Smith & Wesson Moving Headquarters To Tennessee

Gunmaker Smith and Wesson will be moving its headquarters from Springfield, Mass., to Maryville, Tenn., in response to gun manufacturing–related legislation proposed in Massachusetts. Its head offices have been in the Commonwealth since the company was incorporated in 1852, it wrote in a press release.

Rick Sullivan, head of the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts, joined Arun Rath on GBH’s All Things Considered to discuss the move and the potentially economic ramifications for the region Friday. What follows is a lightly edited transcript.

Arun Rath: Smith and Wesson leaving Springfield, this feels like a big deal on many levels. On the economic level, how big a deal is this?
