Tenney issues statement on Remington Arms layoffs

Rep. Claudia Tenney

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney (NY-22) released the following statement after Remington Arms announced that 55 hardworking men and women will be laid off from the Ilion facility:

“Remington Arms has been a staple in Herkimer County for over two hundred years, and I have had the distinct honor of representing their hardworking employees in both the State Assembly and now in Congress. Unfortunately, economic downturns in the firearms industry have forced Remington to reduce the size of their workforce to remain competitive. I know many employees at Remington personally and am saddened to hear this news. The failed economic and anti-Second Amendment policies of New York have continued to burden Remington’s Ilion facility. Our office stands ready to provide any assistance we can offer to the affected employees and their families during this time.”
