Remington being courted by
legislators from at least 5 states

Observer-Dispatch [Utica NY], by Rob Juteau

ILION —At least five states have contacted the parent company of Remington Arms to encourage the gun manufacturer to relocate in response to New York’s new, tougher gun control laws. Lawmakers from Michigan, South Carolina, Arizona and Oklahoma have all sent letters to Remington’s owner, Freedom Group, since the state Legislature passed tougher gun control legislation two weeks ago. Texas first contacted the company in November 2012. “When you hear news like this it does raise a high level of concern because of what the other states could potentially offer, but at the same time we have reached out

Wish Mississippi were on the list of states courting Remington. I would pit our gun owners against any other state. Bring it on. Even old ladies like me are able to hit the bulls eye...or robber if needs be. My deer hunting days are over...can´t sit that long..but we are well armed in the plumnellie family.

There are three issues with Remington (and other gun MFGers) being in true blue states. First is the all out political assault on them in the current gun control fight (think Rahm Emmanuel in Chi-town). Second is the ever-increasing state taxes in liberal-controlled areas (NY, CA, etc.). And third is the fact that most blue states are not Right to Work states so most of the labor force is unionized.

I´ve been saying this for the last four years. Why would any gun manufacturer remain in a blue state?

Move now why you still can!

Might I recommend GA, NC, SC?

Freedom Group may be the group to keep an eye on, they are buying up gun companies (I hear Marlin is next, and may be up to no good?

I would bet that many of the employees at the Remington plant are excited about the prospect of escaping New York to more friendly locals. What union represents these employees? The favorable economic implications of moving to a right-to-work state are growing every year.

Dear Remington,

As a New Yorker I do my very best to convince anyone and everyone to NOT move here. Businesses especially should be discouraged from moving to this blood sucking state. I hope Remington pulls out of here to another state who will welcome them.

They should move immediately to a free state and take all specially skilled employees with them. In fact, all citizens who care about their rights should move out of New York state.

Our Governor, a recent candidate for President, has personally asked Remington (and other gun manufacturers) to move to our State. Texas will always be gun-friendly. My children have been raised that way and we are now raising our grandkids to be that way.

Hey, we love firearms in Texas. Everyone has one, or more even. We also don´t have any income taxes.

Yeah, we do get a bit hot in the summer but there is plenty of A/C, and the energy to power it, and plenty of iced tea, too.

I think Remington´s employees will really love moving to Texas.

The first state that throws in buying the employees houses and paying relocation expenses for them will likely have a deal.

It is pretty clear that the liberal Democrats are attempting to put much of the generally considered conservative oriented US small arms and related industries out of business by banning just about all the modern firearms that are produced and sold in the USA today. As clearly those industries would have a very hard time surviving by bidding on a diminishing number of military contracts in the future. If those industries are wiped out, the tens of thousands of well paying US jobs in those industries would also disappear, and with them would go all the related technical know how.

It is notable that the liberal Democrats are as silent as church mouses regarding the culpability of the Hollywood movie and the video game industries in their wholesale production of very violent content computer enhanced multimedia presentations, from which they earn billions of dollars some of which finds its way into Democrat campaign coffers, that give criminally insane ideas such as mass murder to unstable young minds present in such peaceful places as rural Connecticut towns.

I´m gonna go out on a limb and guess that economic issues rather than ideological fealty to the Second amendment will determine Remington´s decision. I don´t see how the NY gun-ban law will directly affect Remington´s bottom line, given their nation-wide customer base, unless the NY authorities decide to raid the plant and confiscate the guns and magazines Remington manufactures for the civilized parts of the country that can still buy them. My guess is that Rem will stay put.

How long before ALL industries that make stuff people actually need and want to buy have relocated to Republican states and ALL trash "industries" making stuff Dems want people to buy, and are 100% dependent on public funds have relocated to Bankrupt states?

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000. That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work — in the private sector — and did it week after week after week. These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media has not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species. It is

Former Republican National Committee Chairman Ken Mehlman advised the White House on how President Obama should announce his support for gay marriage. A Harvard classmate of Obama’s, Mehlman told the president over a White House lunch that it was politically viable to reverse his position and support gay marriage, according to a report in The New York Times. Mehlman, who managed George W. Bush’s reelection campaign and came out as gay in 2010, told Obama that the American public viewed him as an idealist willing to put politics aside, and that endorsing same-sex marriage would reinforce that image. Mehlman also

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
