New York Republicans, including U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik and state Sen. Mark Walczyk, are attributing Remington Arms’ decision to close its historic Ilion, New York, factory to the state’s gun control regulations.

Remington’s memo to employees confirmed the closure by March 4, 2024. Stefanik criticized the state’s “unconstitutional gun-grab policies,” calling on Governor Kathy Hochul to halt the assault on the Second Amendment.

Walczyk also blamed the closure on New York’s stringent gun control laws, particularly the Gun Industry Liability Law signed by former Governor Andrew Cuomo in 2021.

Remington Arms plans to open a new facility in Georgia and continue firearm production at its Huntsville, Alabama, factory.

New York Republicans — including U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik and state Sen. Mark Walczyk — are hammering state Democrats over the slew of gun control regulations allegedly behind Remington Arms’ decision to close the historic Ilion, New York, factory.

On December 1, 2023, Breitbart News reported Remington had announced the factory close and noted that the factory in Ilion first opened nearly 200 years ago.

Remington sent a memo to Ilion employees, which said, “I am writing to inform you that RemArms, LLC has decided to close its entire operation at 14 Hoefler Avenue, NY 13357. The Company expects that operations at the Ilion Facility will conclude on or about March 4, 2024.”

On December 11, 2023, the Times Union pointed out that Stefanik hammered NY’s “unconstitutional gun-grab policies” as causing the closure.

Stefanik pointed to current Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul, saying, “Hochul must stop her unconstitutional assault on the Second Amendment now,”

Walcyzk likewise blamed the closure on the state’s stringent gun control environment, noting that NY adopted a state law which undercuts protections gun makers otherwise enjoy under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The state law is called the Gun Industry Liability Law, which was was signed by Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo in 2021.

Remington Arms is opening a new facility in Georgia, to make up for the loss of the Ilion factory, and will continue to make firearms at its Huntsville, Alabama, factory as well.
