Progressive policies at work…
Remington Arms Company, Inc., founded in 1816 in upstate New York, announced in February they will build their new factory in Alabama and not the Empire state. Since New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) signed the SAFE Gun Control Act, multiple gun companies have left the state. And, now Remington will not build its new plant there.
Fran Madore, president of United Mine Workers Local 717, blamed Remington Arms expansion to Alabama on New York’s SAFE Act which was passed by Democrats last year.
The buzz around the industry early yesterday was that Advanced Armament Corp was being closed down and relocated. Before the end of business yesterday, employees at six Remington properties along with two production lines in Ilion, New York, were told their companies- and jobs- were relocating to Huntsville, Alabama.
Here’s the official company statement from spokesperson Teddy Novin:
“Earlier today we announced the consolidation of multiple company plants into our Huntsville, Alabama facility. This was a strategic business decision to concentrate our resources into fewer locations and improve manufacturing efficiency and quality. We are working hard to retain as many from the affected facilities as possible.”
The companies being relocated and their current locations are:
Advanced Armament Corp, Lawrenceville, Georgia; Montana Rifleman, Kalispell, Montana; TAPCO, Kennesaw, Georgia; LAR Manufacturing, West Jordan, Utah;
Para-Ordnance, Pineville, North Carolina; and DPMS, St. Cloud, Minnesota. Additionally, the Bushmaster production and Remington 1911 production lines will also be relocating from Ilion, New York.
A Remington source tells The Outdoor Wire Digital Network the company will be offering relocation opportunities but an attractions of modern state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities like the one in Huntsville, Alabama is their innate ability to eliminate head count without negatively impacting production outputs.

The common cause between the U.S. and the Brotherhood sheds new light on the Obama administration’s support for the regime of Mohammed Mursi. National security investigations in Egypt discovered that under the regime of the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt procured weapons after receiving them from Sudan and Libya before shipping them on to Syria to arm rebels.
Now evidence from Middle Eastern sources reveals common interests between the Barack Obama administration and Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood regime with respect to weapons trafficking.
A federal judge on Thursday ruled that a D.C. law requiring guns to be registered, mandating safety training and limiting the number of pistol purchases per month do not violate Second Amendment protections of the right to bear arms.
U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg dismissed with prejudice a sweeping challenge to the District’s handgun laws brought by a group of plaintiffs led by Dick Anthony Heller in a ruling that opens with a recounting of some of the city’s most notorious recent shootings.
“The District of Columbia knows gun violence. Notorious for a time as the ‘murder capital’ of the United States, it recorded over 400 homicides annually in the early 1990s — more than one for every 1500 residents. While safety in the District has improved markedly in this millennium, residents will not soon forget the violence of the more recent past: the wounding of seven children outside the National Zoo on Easter Monday in 2000, the triple murder at Colonel Brooks’ Tavern in 2003, the five killed in the South Capitol Street shootings in 2010, and the twelve shot to death inside the Washington Navy Yard only a few months ago. These number just a few of the lives lost to guns in our city’s recent memory.”
— Judge James E. Boasberg
“The people of this city, acting through their elected representatives, have sought to combat gun violence and promote public safety,” Judge Boasberg wrote in the opinion released Thursday. “The Court finds that they have done so in a constitutionally permissible manner.”(continued)
