Remington in Jeopardy Thanks to NY’s Dumb Ass Gun Laws

Screen Shot 2013-02-22 at 9.00.24 AMHere’s the latest example of head-splitting cognitive dissonance in Washington: President Obama used his State of the Union address to crusade for a revitalized U.S. manufacturing sector. But while he pays lip service to supporting businesses that build their products on American soil, Obama and his left-wing operatives are hell-bent on driving a key sector of the U.S. manufacturing industry six feet under: the American firearms and ammunition industry.

The White House is pushing new government spending to “spur economic growth,” protect manufacturing plants and “create good-paying jobs” to help America’s middle class. Yet across the country, with aggressive lobbying by the White House itself, Democrats are working to destroy tens of thousands of good-paying jobs and the firms that created them. Assault rhetoric has lasting real-world consequences.

In New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo imposed radical, ineffectual gun-grabbing measures that are backfiring in more ways than one. Nearly half a dozen gun companies have now announced that they will no longer sell their products to police in the Empire State. In protest of Cuomo’s gun-control regime banning citizens from owning semi-automatic rifles or shotguns because of cosmetic features deemed “military-style,” Washington-based Olympic Arms “will no longer be doing business with the State of New York or any governmental entity or employee of such governmental entity within the State of New York.”

    The list is growing daily of those gun manufacturers who will not sell to state governments who suppress their citizens second amendment rights. Could this be the start, along with resistance to Obamacare, of the Second American Revolution? We the People are ready to stand and deliver. Be sure to avoid those companies who will not support your right to bear arms.

      ALL gun manufacturers and ammo manufacturers need to stop selling to the federal government also for the same reason, they are violating our freedoms guaranteed to us by the Constitution. The federal government should get NO more guns and ammo from the private sector. Most of it is being stored for the war between the government and the patriots.

  • TexRancher

    Come on Remington. The handwriting is on the wall. I know that moving a whole company is distasteful, but the choice is clear; To survive, you must leave a hostile environment and move to a State that appreciates and will help you like Texas! Just leave any of the democommunists that might currently work for (against) you behind!
    Ruger and Colt, ditto!

  • charlie

    those in ny should have left that state long ago. if this causes them to lose money then the management needs to be replaced for staying where they were not welcome

  • garysvent

    Let this administration get its guns and bullets from their d***ed buddies in China.

  • k9bowwow

    Read your history. The second amendment was written so that if the government became tyrannical the citizens would have weapons to overthrow it., just as they overthrew the English government. That right cannot be abridged . Therefore any weapon in the government arsenal, even tanks and missiles may be owned by citizens.
