Texas Gov. Rick Perry is courting Connecticut gun manufacturers, extolling the tax policies and regulatory climate of his state.

Perry spent time Monday shooting at a firing range at Colt Manufacturing Co., touring plants and meeting privately with company owners and other businesses. Some gun makers have threatened to leave Connecticut since the state passed new gun-control laws this year in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
