Chino is located in San Bernardino county and has a population of 82,830 people. Chino is known for its Dairy and its agriculture. Its considered the major hub for dairy and agriculture products in that area of California. It is also home to two state prisons,the California institute for men and women. It also houses Prado the Olympic shooting facility which makes this article ironic. In a city that houses an Olympic shooting facility there are many opponents to gun companies.
A couple years ago there was a ban on small pistols called "Saturday night specials". The ban came from the association of violent crime with the use of the gun. So local governments began suing the companies that were producing these firearms. Two companies that were located in Chino closed their gun companies when the word got around that local government would be head hunting manufacturers of these "Saturday night specials". The Davis Industries Inc. ans Sundance Industries both filed for Chapter 7 before any formal suit was filed.
Theses companies filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in Chino
because they realized that they didn't have the money associated with such law suits and realized that if they were to persist with the operation of their company that they would take more of a loss. The companies filed chapter7 bankruptcy so that they could escape from their creditors and since they were closing that they had no source of income to pay back their creditors. So this is a positive for anyone who is for gun control in Chino.
