Wait. What? Charles Schumer as in Senator Charles Schumer? Yup. Chuck was speaking at Remington’s official announcement (reported by uticaod.com) that they’re adding 40 to 50 new jobs—building assault rifles. “Thanks to Remington’s continued confidence in this capable work force, we’re going to see even more good-paying jobs at the plant, creating positive ripple effects throughout the region. The addition of these jobs strengthens the ability of the Remington plant in Ilion to compete for the many Department of Defense small arms M-4 and M-16 style firearms.” Not to mention the fact that these jobs are the direct result of shuttering Bushmaster’s Maine factory and folding its marketing ops into the Freedom Group borg. Or that Bushmaster sells plenty of modern home defense sporting rifles (that hold more than 10 bullets) to civilians. Huh.
