Always blame problems on the gun. It was a person who shot the the gun and killed those kids. Hell people that get hit or are in car accidents dont blame the vehicle for the death or injury. For christ sakes people always need to blame someone. The issue happened in conneticut not ny they need to take care of their own problems
We are done

Ilion will soon be a ghost town! They will never get the military contract back now with the company for sale.

What if they can't sell?, close down? Who is going to buy a company the government is trying to over-regulate.

This is a very sad day for Ilion and the valley. I'm willing to bet severe lay-offs are announced soon at Remington.

Has Remington commenced with their reduction in force at Ilion? Saw an article on the news about Ilion and what hangs in balance now that Cuomo's wonderful new law went into place.

Reason why is because the California Teachers union has 750 million invested with them and threatened to yank their money out,if not sold.Business is business.

What the hell is the problem??? You can't buy a assault rifle in NYS.....who the hell cares. Remington can still manufacture them and sell them in the other 49 states.Remington can still make rifles, shotguns etc..still sell rifles and shotguns in all 50 states.
