Remington Firearms Moving to Georgia

Remington Firearms is moving their Headquarters, Research and some manufacturing to LaGrange, GA. I guess this is a win for GA and probably a better environment for Remington. Makes sense that firearms companies would relocate to firearms friendly States. Now, if we can just keep Georgia a Second Amendment friendly State...,-ga
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.

That's pretty exciting. LaGrange could use a win, too. Maybe it'll offset the Hollywood influx.

Wish they'd go a bit further west to AL. They'd still have access to the same workers.

The last thing GA needs is more publicity to further motivate those who've moved here (from 2A-unfriendly states) and are now trying to flip it.

We have a similar problem in the Pacific NW. The metro areas are long lost, but the rural areas still face an influx of people who left CA and are now working to turn WA and OR into the crap (they say) they left CA to get away from.

I call them locusts. Because they act like them. Destroy the good stull (eat all the food) then move to another place and do it all over again.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.

I think the Remington move to GA is a win for the state - but harbor the same reservations. The Atlanta area is already a pretty deep blue metropolitan area, and while the rest of the state remains center right as we've discovered in Colorado and the PNW one giant deep blue megalopolis can determine reality for the entire rest of the state. Georgia will face this as well. The eastern half of Washington is inundated with California license plates, and as 44 AMP observed it likely won't be many years before this level of relocation will change the political landscape in this part of the state also.
Treat everyone you meet with dignity and respect....but have a plan to kill them just in case.

Good for Remington. I wish them well and hope their quality improves with the move.

You knew this was going to happen. I just wish it would have happened in a more stable location like AL, TN, AR or TX. GA is up in the air.

Who owns Remington, now?? Or, more precisely, who owns the Remington that is moving to Georgia?
