Cindy Daniel, Executive Vice President of Daniel Defense, spoke with the Governor before staff, and personally thanked him for his support of Georgia House Bill 60 (HB60), which allows for the use of sound suppressors for hunting under certain circumstances.  “We believe that we did put in place a piece of legislation that helps, of course, with the suppressors that you manufacturer here,” said the Governor during his speech, referring to the Integrally Suppressed Rifle (ISR) that Daniel Defense released in 2013.  “Based on what hunters were telling us, especially those who were dealing with some of the problems with feral hogs, that this was the appropriate thing for us to do.”

The Governor was also commended for his support of the Manufacturing Engineering Degree Program at Georgia Southern University, which will begin enrolling students next fall.  “This will be a tremendous help to Daniel Defense and other Georgia companies so that we can hire and retain engineers that are ready to hit the ground running in manufacturing,” expressed Cindy Daniel.  Daniel Defense, which relies heavily on skilled labor and those with advanced degrees, has built a strong reputation as one of the leading firearms manufacturers in the U.S.
