Remington Outdoor Company recently cut more jobs at its plant in Ilion, New York. Part of the reason was declining sales of Remington firearms and part was due to New York’s SAFE Act passed in 2013 according to a letter from Remington CEO George Kollitides.
New Yorker Against Gun Violence Executive Director Leah Gunn Barrett says that public safety trumps economics.
Critics love to use the New York SAFE Act as a whipping boy, but let’s face it, that law is keeping New Yorkers safe and keeping New York communities safe and our kids safe and guns out of the wrong hands, to me that’s more important.
And just how many murders, robberies, etc. were committed with an AR-15 in New York, Leah?
