The iconic Remington Arms is leaving its historic home, New York, for greener pastures in Georgia. 

Remington Arms is moving to LaGrange, Georgia where it will be building its new headquarters. Remington was formerly based out of New York where it has been based since the early 1800s.

Remington CEO Ken D’Arcy said, “we are very excited to come to Georgia, a state that not only welcomes business but enthusiastically supports and welcomes companies in the firearms industry.

The economic development director for the city of LaGrange, Scott Malone, said that Remington has already secured one building in the city and is looking into getting more. The city will likely offer Remington tax breaks and tax abatements to make the move easier. 

Remington has recently reopened a historic factory in New York prior to the move. The local government in Ilion, New York gave Remington 10 years of tax breaks in exchange for the restart of the factory and the upgrades the company made to it. 

Many figures in the firearms industry are leaving their historic homes in the American Northeast and moving to the American Southeast. These moves are simple to understand, governments in these northeastern states are punishing these companies because of the industry that they work in. These companies are moving states as a matter of survival, and nothing more.

Besides moving out of these states, they should stop SELLING firearms and ammunition to EVERY law enforcement department in these states. Also, if they try to purchase OUT-OF-STATE, still don’t sell to them!!

Why would you punish a largely conservative group of people putting their lives on the line to protect others and fight crime? THINK before you post.

Many of my comments have been censored here. When pressed for time, Full Mag News is among the first to be deleted from my reading list for that day.

ALL Firearm Manufactures AND DEALERS should Leave Every State that is and has been run by Anti-American, Anti- Constitution, Anti-Law And Order, Pro-Gun Control Idiot Democrats for years now, where the CRIME RATES Are HIGHER Than Any Where Else, And Move to where TRUE AMERICANS are in control. GO REMINGTON, It’s About Time They Are Wising Up.

This is a good move on Remingtons part. This is a win-win-win: New York loses income, Remington gets a better business climate, the new State they locate to gets the increased income New York loses. SOL New York State. When all that is left in New York is Democommie politicians, woke activists, illegals, and welfare recipients we will see how New York holds up!!

The big question is, why did it take them so long to see the writing on the wall. They and everyone else, should have left decades ago.

Now watch the blue states become liberal loony lands, implode and self-destruct.

We’re already watching it. They have no sense of cause and effect, react only with knee-jerks.

About 200 workers at the Ilion, New York plant have dodged the (ahem) inconvenience and will continue manufacturing the Model 870 for now. Except for that small exception, Remington seems to have escaped the Cuomo-Blasio train wreck.
