Remington to layoff 120 more employees

excerpt:
Remington Outdoor Co. has laid off more than 120 workers at an upstate New York factory in response to falling demand for firearms, dealing a blow to an upstate village of 8,000.

Since Donald Trump’s presidential victory eased concerns about stiffer gun laws, the small-arms industry has seen a drop in sales. As a result, orders for Remington handguns have slowed, a company spokeswoman said Monday. That is “a dynamic from which Remington is not immune,” she said of the industry challenges.

I thought they were in the process of moving their manufacturing out of NY anyway, going to Alabama or Mississippi as best as I can recall.

it disappoints me to see this happening across the industry; and I'm sure that there will be more of it as time goes by; and as the hobby becomes more and more politically incorrect as well; as I'm quite certain that it's politically motivated ...
