    Five states courting Remington Arms away from New York

    Five states have contacted the parent company of Remington Arms to encourage the gun maker to relocate in response to New York's efforts to tighten gun control laws.

    The flurry of courtships comes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed "the toughest gun control laws in the nation" on Jan. 15.

    Lawmakers from Michigan, Oklahoma, Arizona and South Carolina have all sent letters to Remington's owner, Freedom Group, in the last two weeks. Texas sent a letter to the company back in November. It's common practice for the governor's office send such letters to companies from time to time, according to a spokeswoman.

    The letters cite each state's business-friendly environment and support of the Second Amendment, but do not mention specific economic incentives for moving. The letters encourage the company to contact the state's economic development offices.

    "Horrific news"

    The Remington Arms plant has been located in the Mohawk Valley town of Ilion, just east of Utica, for almost 200 years. The town of 8,000 people was built around the company and New York's new gun control measures have many their worried about the future of the factory.

    Remington makes several types of rifles, including the Bushmaster semi-automatic line, which was used in the Newtown, Conn. shooting and is now banned for sale in New York.

    Word that so many states are trying to get Remington to move is "horrific news," says Frank "Rusty" Brown, the political coordinator for the United Mine Workers of America Local 717, the union that represents the Remington employees.

    "This is actually the worst situation we’ve been in as far as other states wanting to lure us away," he says.

    This is 1 of those damned if you do, damned if you don't cases. If the company moves, it will almost certainly get lots of corporate welfare and/or tax breaks. It is shown that such breaks don't help the area that provided them. However, the NY government like hates this company and may try to shut in down within a few years.

    A lot of tax revenue, crony capitalist wires and cultural significant items come from NYC. It is the second most powerful city in the world. THe first being London or DC. In my life i lived in 2 cities New York and Hong Kong. The power structure is basically how they control the world. it feels great to live here, but also an eerie indiana jones feeling that the city will crumble and die.

    Did anyone else notice how the article says a Bushmaster .223 was used in the Newtown shooting? What BS
    "Power tends to confuse itself with virtue...conferring upon it a special responsibility for other nations—to make them richer and happier and wiser, to remake them, that is, in its own shining image. Power confuses itself with virtue and tends also to take itself for omnipotence. Once imbued with the idea of a mission, a great nation easily assumes that it has the means as well as the duty to do God's work." - William Fulbright

    This gives me an idea too. Why don't we write letters to companies all over California and New York explaining the stupidity of staying in high tax blue states and logically showing they should move to TEXAS!!!!

    I don't do that because it would be a waste of my time. I know people that do that, but with letters about the FSP/NH to folks that request them.

    I hope they do move. Why let those socialista states have any capability of manufacturing of weapons, think about it. South lost the war because they had no industry, if they had a few arms factories it might have turned out different. Get colt and S and W out of the NE too. Time for Springfield armory to get out of Illinois.

    Ruger has factories in NH and AZ now. Browning and Winchester are located in Utah.

    Why do you want arms factories out of the NE? Several of the NE states are near the top, if not at the top in the US, when it comes to weapons laws.
