Remington layoffs

Remington has laid-off 122 people at the Ilion plant.

Despite what Bob Owens says, it is probably not due to the SAFE Act. The gun industry has been slowing down since the election.

What Chuck has been up to

Chuck Schumer has been relatively quiet in public, but sure enough, him and his mini-me have not been idle:

“Senate Democrats on Monday introduced a bill that would mandate all 3D printed guns have at least one primary component made from metal. The bill, S. 533, would update the 25-year-old Undetectable Firearms Act, which requires all firearms to be detectable by a metal detector, by requiring at least one main component such as the frame or barrel be made of metal …”

This is unenforceable.

At some point, home metal printing will become affordable and that is when the antis heads will start exploding.

Surprise from ATF

The #2 official at ATF has written a proposal to reduce gun regulations, including removing silencers from the NFA.

It isn’t an official position statement by the ATF, just one persons opinion, but it should be helpful in generating support for the Hearing Protection Act of 2017, H.R. 367.

The bill now has two local sponsors with Lee Zeldin adding his name last week.

Setting an example

The Westchester gun show this past weekend was a big success with larger than expected turnout.  The County Center is a good location and hopefully they will be able to go back to having 2-3 shows there every year.

Rob Astorino deserves a shoutout for standing up to antigun politicians:

“… [County Executive Rob Astorino] vetoed legislation Thursday that moved to ban gun shows on county-owned property. “I tried to look at this issue not in the emotional way, as some people wanted me to do it,” he said. “There was no justification to ban a gun show based on the facts and based on the law.” …”

Other downstate politicians, especially Republicans, should take note of Astornio’s actions.  He called BS on the anti’s hysterics and proved they don’t have the ability to motivate opposition turnout.

FN advertisement

I saw an advertisement for FN last night on El Rey Network.

First time for that. The only other televised gun company ads I have seen before were from Henry on FoxNews. It is a sign we’re making advances in the gun culture war.

Ruger to donate to NRA to stop Clinton

Ruger’s CEO goes all-in with the NRA to fight Hillary:

“Michael Fifer, CEO of Sturm, Ruger & Co., took a strong political stance on Wednesday during the company’s earnings call.  In addition to advocating support for the Second Amendment, Fifer also pledged large donations to the National Rifle Association, said the company will urge customers to call their congressional representatives … In support of the Second Amendment, Fifer said Sturm, Ruger & Co. will donate $2 to the NRA for every gun it sells, and it will match all donations to the NRA up to $5 million until the election on November 8 …”

What is amusing about this is, from a financial perspective, gun companies would likely have a business boom under Hillary.
