Let me give Governor Andrew Cuomo a lesson in cause and effect.
Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.
it won’t matter to gun manufacturers if you’re running an ad like this:
because, with that first statement in mind, That ad will play like this speech…
…to Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan
Remington Outdoor Co. plans to open a 500,000-square-foot factory in Alabama that would employ 2,000 people, AL.com and the Military Times reported today.
How much money does that mean your state missed out on…
“The company is making the move as an expansion of capacity, production and research,” a source told Yellowhammer on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly. “The demand for Remington products has skyrocketed recently, for obvious reasons, so they need to increase their production capacity. They will be expanding their research capabilities with the Alabama plant, too.”
The initial estimated impact on Alabama’s economy will be roughly $87 million.
…that’s a lot. While the Cuomo team spins:
Some are misinformed, others gleefully spreading misinformation, but to be clear, no Remington jobs are leaving NY.

others are cheering:
“I’d be more than excited, hysterical, yes I’d be very excited,” said Robby Easterling at JC’s Guns and Tackle. Easterling said it doesn’t surprise him that Remington may have its eye on Huntsville. ”They know we believe in our 2nd Amendment rights and we stand by them.”
Governor Cuomo and his civilian disarmament allies have some ‘splainin’ to do.
And casting blame:
A union official said Saturday the Remington Arms Co.’s decision to open a manufacturing plant in Alabama does not bode well for Ilion, and he’s blaming New York’s SAFE Act restrictions on assault weapons. “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?”
at those who ignored this warning in 2012
“Mandating firearms micro- stamping will restrict the ability of Remington to expand business in the Empire State,” company chief strategy officer Stephen Jackson Jr. wrote to Cuomo. “Worse yet, Remington could be forced to reconsider its commitment to the New York market altogether rather than spend the astronomical sums of money needed to completely reconfigure our manufacturing and assembly processes.” Jackson insisted that law enforcement, gun retailers and “law-abiding consumers throughout New York — if not the entire country” would be directly affected. Senate bill sponsor Jose Peralta dismissed Remingtons warning as “just another tactic being used to try and block microstamping, which is supported by many crime-fighters.”
The report said Alabama’s reputation as a strong supporter of Second Amendment rights was a factor in the decision.

Now it’s true, Remington hasn’t moved their current jobs in NY, but once there is a brand new plant operating in Alabama it won’t be very hard for do so, will it?
