Increase in anti-gun activists encourages business to move to ‘friendlier’ region 

Calico Light Weapon Systems is moving its world headquarters from its current location in Cornelius to Elgin, bringing with it jobs for the community and a possible boost to the region’s economy. 

“I’ve always loved the northeastern corner of Oregon,” Calico Weapons President Chris Holmgren said. “The people I’ve met and some of our friends who live in the area have been nothing but advocates for us.”

However, Holmgren admitted that it also had to do with the region he’s moving out of that didn’t appreciate what his company manufactures.

“Eastern Oregon can be more open minded and understanding,” he said. “What I do doesn’t mean I bring the devil with me.”

Union County Economic Development President Mark Davidson said he’s glad Calico Weapons chose Union County for its headquarters.
