Remington said it will move production of its Bushmaster line of semi-automatic rifles that are no longer legal for the company to sell in New York without modifications. It is also sending work[sic] on its popular 1911 R1 pistol.
A Remington spokesman made no mention of the SAFE Act in announcing the production line shift, nor the number of jobs affected. However, the Syracuse Post Standard quoted a union offiical as saying 80 out of the 1,400 jobs at the facility are being eliminated.
When Remington does the math and sees how much cheaper they can manufacture their guns in Alabama (no unions) they’ll move more of their production there.
