I wish you'd rethink that position...Politics aside NY has a RICH history and the first Remingtons ever made in America were made right there in Ilion, NY...

Also, the plant employs a lot of people, 2 of which I know personally.

Upstate Y is in rough shape and people don't understand that...This state is 85% of the population in 15% of the land mass (NYC) and they act like "UPSTATE" is the tumor!!!!

South Carolina would REEEEAAAALLLLYYYYY like Remington jobs....

Hey, we got a bunch of car manufacturers, and Boeing....
Again...the only people this would hurt are the ones who work at the plant.

Do you think NY state NEEDS Remington? No..they don't.

But I want them. The Remington family has been making guns there since 1816!

Well its clear from what Ive read that the politicians in new york state went against their constituents in some cases. Remington protested. We need to get with remington and the people in the districts that were ignored and sold out by their politicians and see about getting some scumbags replaced with people who will actually vote the will of their people. I love remington. Its an american icon.

a big what if,,,,, what if Remington did close up their factory in New York and move those operations to another state? how many people are employeed at that factory? where do they go? to the new factory? what about those people with ties to their communities, houses and property? what about some just would not want to move.

many people seem to think it's just easy to pick up and move to another state, whether it be a person or a company. it ain't!

Great point axxe.

Almost 3,000 people would lose theie jobs. Ilion is a smaller neighborhood (Yes...most of NY is actually rural.)

Sure, Rochester, Syracuse and Oneida are close....but the job market as a whole is pretty stagnant. I walk into local coffee shops and there are older people in their 60s working because retirement is non-existent
