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.

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.

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.
