Remington needs to move to a state that would appreciate them. TEXAS.
South Carolina. It's gonna be South Carolina.
Well, I think even the unions are not looking clearly at what was said. THe words are Some product lines may be moved to another state. i.e Bushmaster. However. if the idiot from NYC has her way and does away with the tax breaks, it then becomes financially feasible for everything to move.
All of the complaining about the loss of jobs will only affect some of them. The hardcore libs care only about one thing- their agenda. Ousting them is the only message that they listen to. But then you have to be vigilant because they will try to return.
As for a move to another state. Why would they move to ANY New England state. The entire area is becoming more and more liberal each year with the politics moving further and further left each election.
Since we're speculating abut where a good place would be, here's my 2 cents. [ Cuz that's about all it's worth ] Best case move would be to an area with easy rail and freeway access that does not have a city or two big enough to control the politics of the rest of the state. Don't know if anyone thinks about it this way. Colorado is proof that when the largest city hits a certain size, the politics start movng to the left and as it grows larger the rest of the state has less and less say in what goes on. If I was them, I'd consider states with scattered populations that are hard core gun using states. The Dakotas, Wyoming, New Mexico, W Virginia, and a couple of the southern states would be options under this thought process.

South Dakota is an obvious choice. Alabama gives companies significant tax breaks to start factories, plus we have a suplus of union free labor since Delphi closed its doors and walked away, and NASA is losing funding.

Texas and S Carolina are good candidates for Remington. Good political climate and business perks. Magpul from Colorado is also in the administration crosshairs. (Pardon the pun)! Magpul makes plastic magazines for firearms. I think there were 600 jobs to be lost there.

Don't forget Montana. We've got a pretty good little cottage industry making weapons here. And someone in the legislature here just introduced legislation to say that guns manufactured and sold within the state of Montana are NOT subject to federal gun laws. That's now something that would impact Remington, but it does give you an idea of how we feel about guns here.
Think Remington could expand its Mayfield Ky operation. Isn't Illion NY where they are now making their 1911 also? Would have to ship with a 7 rd instead of 8 rd magazine now. I totally disagree that the law enforement officers should be exempted from their stupid ban. Those officers are all NY residents and citizens that are not above the law. Cuomo's security detail needs to be limited to used RG revolvers.
