The anti-gun views of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo are not only costing New Yorkers their constitutional rights but also their jobs. Yellow Hammer News has just revealed the big news that Remington Arms is deciding to expand in a different state, one that actually still supports the rights of American citizens.
High level sources have informed Yellowhammer News that Remington, one of the world’s largest gun manufacturers, will on Monday join Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley in announcing that they are bringing over 2,000 jobs to Alabama.
The company is viewing the move into Alabama as an expansion, but it will likely impact their Ilion, NY plant as well. The New York facility currently employees around 1,200 people. It is expected to stay open, but with a reduced workforce.
“The company is making the move as an expansion of capacity, production and research,” a source told Yellowhammer on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. “The demand for Remington products has skyrocketed recently, for obvious reasons, so they need to increase their production capacity. They will be expanding their research capabilities with the Alabama plant, too.”
The initial estimated impact on Alabama’s economy will be roughly $87 million.
Having been around for 198 years, Remington has seen a dramatic shift in the state in which lawmakers have been scrambling to trample on the rights of law abiding gun owners. The company has been looking for a more freedom friendly state in which to do business and several other states were fighting for the privilege of hosting the gun manufacturer.
Almost half the states in the country have made pitches to Remington, included Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. But in the end, the company chose Huntsville, Ala.
The optics could not be worse for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who told WCNY radio host Susan Arbetter about a month ago that “extreme conservatives” who are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,” have “no place in the state of New York.”
Gov. Bentley and Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard both immediately responded to Cuomo’s comments.
“In Alabama we strongly support and uphold our great U.S. Constitution on which our nation and our states were founded,” Bentley told Yellowhammer. “The Constitution serves to protect individual Freedoms. Among them are those guaranteed in the Second Amendment, which protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms. We will protect the Freedoms of individuals and welcome any one or any company to Alabama to discover as so many have, that we are a pro-business state filled with good, hardworking people.”
“If he doesn’t want hard working pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment people in his state, we will gladly take them here in Alabama,” Speaker Hubbard added.
The SAFE Act is seeing a lot of opposition right now and there are several law suits against the unconstitutional law that restricts the rights of citizens while doing nothing to deter crime. And while criminals are rooting for more gun control laws to disarm New York residents, you can look for more businesses and citizens to look for a better place to live.
