In a Facebook post last night, big green let it be known that they think New York’s SAFE Act sucks. Sure, it’s about two months late, but it’s good to know they care. Remmy also defended their recently-awarded government contract (we won it fair and square!) and pledged all due consideration in determining where they’ll do bidness in the future. Is this evidence that Remington’s feeling heat from their customers? Or that they’re beginning to shake off the bonds of the Freedom Group? Stay tuned . . .
To our Remington fans,
We believe the NY SAFE Act is unconstitutional and was passed in a questionable fashion.
Remington and its employees worked diligently with pro-gun legislators to prevent the Act’s passage. We actively participated in the Albany rallies and drove the letter-writing campaign to stop this anti-gun legislation.
The recently awarded Department of Defense (Special Operations Command) contract, questioned by some as a “pay-off,” has been in development for years — it has nothing to do with NY State.
While we are unhappy with the misguided acts of our elected politicians, Remington will not run or abandon its loyal and hard working 1,300 employees without considerable thought and deliberation. Laws can be overturned and politicians voted out of office, but the decisions we make today will affect our people, their families and entire communities for generations.
Please bear with us as we determine the most appropriate way to satisfy our customers and protect our employees.
