Well, he’s right. Cuomo’s gun control laws should be blamed.

"It can't be good," said Fran Madore, president of United Mine Workers Local 717, which represents 1,180 of the 1,300 Remington employees in Ilion. "How can it be good?"

Well Fran, from my point of view, it's a very good thing for those who value Freedom and their Constitutional rights. I almost feel bad for idiots like yourself who subsidize these marxists, but I really just hope you go straight to hell.

Some reporter should ask Fran: “Who did you and your members vote for in the last election?”

So a union thug who was so gay for Cuomo is disappointed in him?

many of the union folks, and most union leadership voted for thelib politicians who passed the safe act.

Speaking of Son-of-Former-Emperor-Cuomo, does anyone have a list/chart of how many companies left NY due to Mario, and a comparison list of same with anDrew? And wasn't it superMario that had to make some special deal with IBM to keep them?

Are we surprised that SonofMario would be any different?

"The community began to flourish starting around 1816 when Eliphalet Remington created his first gun, which would later grow into the Remington Arms company. The community was even further advanced with the completion of the Erie Canal in 1825."

Get over it and move out.

Been to the border of PA and NY farm counties. PA allows fracking and their small town folks are driving around in brand new pickup trucks. Meantime NY refuses to allow it, and their small town folks drive in beat up pick up trucks. NY and PA border is like East Berlin vs West Berlin during the Cold War.

"How can it be good?"

It will liberate 1300 people from the drudgeries of work. They can stay home, raise their kids, and pay their obamacare premiums. It is the republicans that want people to work so hard, and they are leaving the state. What are you complaining about?

You can imagine the scenario. Remington exec talks to the union guy. Company will dissolve completely in NY. Company will end union episode...but offer a friendly deal of moving up 500-odd employees to Alabama as part of the new plant. Union will argue that it must move lock, stock and barrel with the company. Company will say that this deal dissolves in NY state and exists no more. How many guys would want to move to Huntsville? That would be an interesting question. And I’m guessing that a ten-percent wage cut is somewhere in the mix because there’s lesser taxes and less cost involved. This will disturb most guys if offered the deal.

As for more future employment for a former Remington guy in NY state? Well...I doubt if there’s anything, and the state won’t do much to attract new companies....because their tax revenue deal is so bad. Basically...you sit on federal unemployment pay for a long while, then flip burgers or serve people at some bar.

Finally, this ought to be a reality series on the History Channel....as these New Yorker guys arrive and assimilate in Huntsville. It will be a definite culture shock. Would be worth watching weekly on TV.

"The SAFE Act has been a terrible thing from the beginning," he said. "You'd think New York would be doing everything to keep us. Instead, it passes a law that cripples us."

Naive or stupid, or both?

Well, when they made the deal to move the high end AR production to a plant in Texas, they offered many of the workers a move to the Texas plant. From what I heard most of them were excited about moving and did. Lower cost of living, no state income tax and a very pro gun climate.

NY sure shot itself in the foot. hee hee hee

“Strange union for a gun factory to have, isn’t it?”

Maybe it’s a connection with lead and copper, both of which are mined. Well in any case, we have a restive union in the bluest area of the country, let’s pop some corn and enjoy the show! ;)

And they can pursue their passion.

Unless that involves firearms.

Which it might, since they all work in a GUN FACTORY!

Fran, maybe Cuomo will get some state money to retrain your workers to go work in the ever growing Fracking Industry in NY...

Oh wait, he can't, Andrew the magnificent Fubar'd that Industry too...

that's a shame. i visited the illion plant 20 years back, was struck by the pride and level of craftsmanship of the workers. they made a great product, in this case shotguns was the process i saw.

if memory serves, the place was founded by the original remington around the revolutionary war period. they still have one of the guns he made.

you wonder, does anybody in the NY state government ever think that maybe sometime in the future you might want a local arms maker? i mean those guys have been there 200 years, that's a lot of history to arrogantly turn over.
sometimes things change, and not for the good.

after a man armed with an assault rifle massacred twenty children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012.

Actually, the Sandy Hook shooter was not armed with an assault rifle. Even if using an AR-15, it is not an assault rifle. It only shoots one round at a time.

Reports I remember say that the end result was he had used pistols.

Cuomo is a disaster for this state and America this disaster awaits you if you elect Hillary Clinton as your next President. New York politicians specialize in wrecking economies. I live in upstate New York and I watched it deteriorate over the last 50+ years. The Republicans are no better with most of them being RINOS. For example my Republican congressman Gibson is a sellout and now can be classified as a RINO. To make make matters worse he is running against a homosexual who is married to one of the founders of Facebook. Whoever wins will be a loss for New York State citizens. I’m glad we can still move to a more hospitable state when we are ready to go.

Oh the state is trying to attract new companies. While channel surfing the other day I came across on a Buffalo tv station an ad touting New York as a place to come to to open new businesses. It was offering a tax free enterprise zone or a tax free period of a number of years or something. They know they are hemorrhaging and want the bleeding to stop. It actually shocked me for a moment. Never seen anything like it in years gone by.

Either way, it isn’t an assault rifle.

No they didn’t.

Agreed on the “ASSAULT RIFLE!” Aspect.

I’m 1 degree of separation from an EMS 1st responder who spent a lot of time on scene. There was a lot of .223/5.56 brass.
