Ilion, N.Y. - Some concerning news for New York and in particular, the Mohawk Valley.
Gun maker Remington Firearms will move its headquarters from Ilion to Georgia. The company and Georgia officials made the announcement today. Remington is the nation's oldest gun manufacturer and started in Herkimer County in 1816. No word on how or if this will effect the manufacturing plant in Ilion.
Congresswoman Claudia Tenney released a statement saying in part, "Far-left progressives in New York, starting with disgraced former Governor Andrew Cuomo, made it clear their mission was to destroy the Empire State’s iconic firearms industry...I am deeply concerned that today’s announcement may bring this long and storied chapter in our region’s history to an abrupt end".
