State legislators Wednesday met with representatives of Remington Arms to discuss the company’s future in Ilion, according to a news release.

During the meeting it was learned that Remington is making a $20 million dollar investment in upgrades at the Ilion plant, and also has vowed to work with local colleges to develop a workforce training program.

Senators James Seward, R-Oneonta, Hugh Farley, R-Schenectady and Joseph Griffo, R-Rome, as well as assembly members Marc Butler, R-Newport, Claudia Tenney, R-New Hartford, and Anthony Brindisi, D-Utica, met with Remington to see what they could do to ensure the company remains in the Mohawk Valley.

They all voted against the recently passed state Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, which includes a stricter definition of assault weapons and bans magazines that hold more than seven rounds.

Moving would no doubt be an enormously costly and disruptive undertaking.
A long range plan might work but a short term move, in this unsure future environment, could be devastating.
To recover the enormous cost an overseas move could be more than likely.

Sounds like someone is jumping the gun just a bit.

From the article
Quote: Other states have been interest in having the gun maker relocate since New York passed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, which includes a stricter definition of assault weapons and bans magazines that hold more than seven rounds.

“There are serious inquiries from economic development and elected officials from outside of New York who are looking to lure this historic company from our area,” Griffo said. “My colleagues and I are focused on keeping this foundational employer, which continues to expand, here in our community.”

Calls to Remington were not returned Thursday.

Seward Thursday said he wasn’t sure about Remington’s long-term plans.

“Remington Arms and the 1,300 outstanding and loyal workers who make up the 200 year old company’s workforce symbolize the Mohawk Valley,” Seward said. “New York State has partnered with Remington in the past, and I pledged to do everything in my power to ensure that partnership is maintained.”

Money talks and bullshit walks, you have to see what they were offered to stay.

There is no right, there is no wrong, there is only business.
When all around you is falling apart, grab another beer and smile.
