    Remington CEO: SAFE Act impacted decision to expand--in Alabama

    Remington CEO: SAFE Act impacted decision to expand--in Alabama - Remington Arms has confirmed what many already long suspected — New York’s tough gun control laws played a role in the upstate gun manufacturer’s decision to expand outside the state. Remington, which has operated in New York State since 1816, shifted 100 jobs down south in August. Another 126 people were laid off last week as a result of a decline in gun sales. The company says one reason behind its decision to open a new plant in Alabama rather than expand in New York was “state policies affecting use of our products,” Remington Outdoor Company CEO George Kollitides wrote to some upstate officials Oct. 20.


    Gun rights group: Senate turned because of the SAFE Act

    Gun rights group: Senate turned because of the SAFE Act - The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association is taking credit for having turned the tide in the state Senate, noting the defeat of three incumbent Democrats as a result of their stance on the controversial SAFE act. Senators Cecilia Tkaczyk, D-Duanesburg; Terry Gipson, D-Rhinebeck; and Ted O'Brien, D-Irondequiot, all lost re-election to Second Amendment rights candidates endorsed by groups such as the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Rifle Association. The group pointed to these and other losses for gun control candidates in legislative races statewide as a sign of widespread repudiation of gun control laws.

Cuomo win re-election — in exchange for Cuomo’s promise not to aid Senate Democrats in their Long Island races, a top New York GOP leader has charged. Former state Republican Party Executive Director Michael Lawler — who managed Rob Astorino’s ill-fated gubernatorial run against Cuomo — told The Post that he learned of the alleged bombshell deal between Senate GOP leader Dean Skelos and Cuomo just days ago, after suspecting for months that it existed.
