Sorry New York: Gun manufacturer Remington Is Moving 2000 Jobs To Alabama

Remington, one of the biggest gun manufacturers in the world, is opening a new plant Alabama instead of New York. The company started considering the move when New York passed yet another anti-gun law in the wake of the Newtown shooting.

And why shouldn’t they?

In addition to banning magazines that contain more than seven rounds and requiring instant background checks on ammo purchases, : the NY SAFE Act: broadened the definition of so-called “assault weapons” to include a wide range of guns, including the Bushmaster, which was being manufactured at Remington’s New York plant.

Almost half the states in the country have made pitches to Remington, included Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. But in the end, the company chose Huntsville, Ala.

There’s no point in sticking around a state hostile to your industry. Remington will instead be bringing 2,000 new jobs to Alabama.
