Remington, a New York-based gun and ammunition manufacturer, may soon decide to leave the Empire State in response to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s strict new Gun Control law.
Lawmakers from gun-friendly South Carolina, Michigan, Arizona and Oklahoma are all encouraging Remington to relocate, the local news site Innovation Trail reports. Representatives from all four states have sent letters to Freedom Group, Remington’s owner.
“The enemies of freedom are waging an all-out assault on the Second Amendment to the Constitution which we have sworn to protect and defend,” South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan wrote in a letter to Freedom Group’s CEO. “At a time when our government is consistently thwarting the ability of individuals to own businesses, voluntarily trade goods and services, and grown our economy, South Carolina is committed to writing a different story.”
“In South Carolina, we believe in the right to keep and bear arms,” the letter continued.
