Union Official Blames NY 'SAFE Act' Gun Control for Remington's Alabama Expansion

A United Mine Workers official blasted NY Governor Andrew Cuomo’s SAFE Act as the cause of Remington Outdoor Co.’s decision to open a new plant in Alabama.

On February 15th, Breitbart News reported that Remington would soon be announcing the acquisition and opening of a facility in Huntsville, Alabama. 

On that same day, United Mine Workers Local 717 president Fran Madore said Cuomo’s gun control push hurts workers at Remington’s Ilion, New York factory. According to Syracuse.com, Madore said, “The SAFE Act has been a terrible thing from the beginning. You’d think New York would be doing everything to keep us. Instead, it passes a law to cripple us.”

United Mine Workers Local 717 “represents 1,180 of the 1,300 Remington employees in Ilion,” where Remington “has been making firearms since 1816.”
