Thank You Gov. Cuomo

Tell ya what Andy, from now on keep your big ignorant, liberal yap shut. Your father would have had enough sense to stifle it before making a fool of himself.
News sources in Alabama reported on Saturday that an announcement will be made on Monday confirming that Remington Arms is building a new 500,000 square-foot plant in that state and the $87 (m) million dollar investment will mean about 2000 jobs.

Alabama’s Yellowhammer, Military Times and have reported that some of the jobs will be coming from Remington’s birthplace, Ilion, where some 1300 jobs remain.

The Yellowhammer quotes an inside anonymous source at Remington who claims that the Ilion plant will remain open, but with a ‘reduced workforce.’

Governor Cuomo’s spokesman, Rich Azzopardi used Twitter on Saturday night to dispute that, by saying, “…to be clear, no Remington jobs are leaving New York.”

[...]A number of states have been courting Remington Arms, America’s oldest gun maker, since Governor Andrew Cuomo passed New York’s Safe Act in January of last year.

Alabama’s Governor Robert Bentley has been one of those Governor’s looking to welcome the gun maker. While the governor would not confirm Monday’s Remington announcement in Huntsville, he did tell that, ”I think Monday you’ll see something very special in the state,” Bentley said.

Following Governor Cuomo’s comments about conservatives not being welcome in New York, Bentley made it clear that those on the right, including Remington, are clearly welcome.

“In Alabama we strongly support and uphold our great U.S. Constitution on which our nation and our states were founded,” Bentley told Yellowhammer. “The Constitution serves to protect individual Freedoms. Among them are those guaranteed in the Second Amendment, which protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms. We will protect the Freedoms of individuals and welcome any one or any company to Alabama to discover as so many have, that we are a pro-business state filled with good, hardworking people.”

There have been plenty of rumors about Remington’s Ilion plant moving out of the state, especially over the last several months. Congressman Richard Hanna has told WIBX on several occasions that Remington is doing well in Ilion.

RINO Hanna is another idiot. And the Alabama press says that this is a sure thing. Huntsville will be receiving the new jobs.
Remington first began considering new locations after the New York legislature passed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act in response to the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn. 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.

I find it that New York has created enterprise zones and is wooing business to come NY. --with one hand--

With the other, your governor is saying, if you're pro-life, don't come. If you're pro-Constitution, you and your money are not wanted. If you are at all in favor of limited government, we don't want you here. If you want to own a firearm legally, stay where you are.


Sure, GE, MSNBC and a host of "government funded green energy firms" (destined to go broke) are all very progressive. Most business owners don't fit in Cuomo's mold.

Like the parting of the Red Sea, America will end up libtard and Conservative clearly split by borders.

I know what side of the fence I'll be on.

PS, We must make sure the conservative states Make the libtard states live according to their laws and within their economic means.

I'll bet a bunch of pathetic libtards just shivered over that one.
