Ever wonder why the largest gun manufacturer's never left the North East dimwit?
No talent pool for highly skilled machinists and design engineers numbnuts.
That's why you guys get only the assembly work - from cars, to possibly a Boeing 787 - you fly on one first Sparky!
Think you're going to get talented labor for minimal cost? Not likely. Think you're going to get a talented design engineer for under $50,000.00 to start per year? Never.
Learn how to spell stupid.
The reason that machine shop industry and weapons manufacturing remains here in the Northeast is not because of skilled labor; it's because of proximity to raw materials. We have some of the most skilled labor and along with it,a severe primadonna mentality.

Gov Cuomo is in a tough spot. Being a Obamacrat he is committed to destroying the economy in service to Obama's Anti Prosperity Keynsian Agenda

Remington will leave, so will Kimber in Yonkers but hey that's only 2100 jobs. What's another 49 mil(aprox) in unemployment benefits? I know Como can tax the rich to pay for it, oh wait they are leaving too.
