Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik released the following statement on the tragic news that due to New York State’s radical anti-Second Amendment policies and disastrous business climate, they have run Remington Arms, the country’s oldest gun manufacturer, out of New York State. The Ilion Remington plant opened its doors in 1828 and is one of the largest employers in Herkimer County in NY-21.
“It is because of New York Democrats’ unconstitutional gun grab policies that the oldest gun manufacturer in the country has been run out of the state. I have spoken with local officials and Remington Arms union members in United Mine Workers of America, Local 717 about how we must stand up to New York’s failed unconstitutional gun bans. Hochul must stop her unconstitutional assault on the Second Amendment now,” said Congresswoman Elise Stefanik.
