Congressman Duncan invites Remington to South Carolina
Congressman Jeff Duncan encourages Remington Arms to relocate from New York to South Carolina

Washington, DC—South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan encouraged George Kollitides, the CEO of the parent company for Remington Arms, to consider relocating the company’s New York production facilities to South Carolina in light of New York’s recent decision to adopt the most restrictive gun policies in the country.

In the letter, Congressman Duncan highlights South Carolina’s stellar business climate, pointing out the fact that companies like Boeing, BMW, Michelin, Amazon, Bridgestone, and ZF have all invested heavily and created jobs in the Palmetto State. “But beyond our sterling business environment lie the reasons that sparked this letter – reasons you know better than anyone,” Duncan wrote.

“The enemies of freedom are waging an all-out assault on the Second Amendment to the Constitution which we have sworn to protect and defend. At a time when our government is consistently thwarting the ability of individuals to own businesses, voluntarily trade goods and services, and grow our economy, South Carolina is committed to writing a different story. We believe in the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our state welcomes any individual or business who believes the same.”

“It would be an honor to welcome you and America’s oldest gunmaker to the Palmetto state,” wrote Duncan.

In addition to the letter to Mr. Kollitides, Congressman Duncan sent another letter to South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley encouraging her to target other companies in the firearms industry to relocate their operations to South Carolina from other states who hold a hostile view of the Second Amendment.

“In South Carolina, we believe in the right to keep and bear arms,” Duncan wrote the Governor. “We need to encourage other businesses who share those beliefs to relocate to the Palmetto State.”

Glad to see this. A great American gun manufacturer such as Remington should have been in the south all along though, not NY! More jobs for SC citizens is always a plus!

For some reason, I thought Remington production facilities were in North Carolina. Do they actually have any facilities in New York? More importantly, are all their products manufactured exclusively in the USA? Not too sure about that,

As much as taxes are & the more big government there keeps dictating more rights away from law abidding American citizens ( no more 32 oz sodas , gun rights, etc...) then why not go after more business than just Remington? And this is how the people who want to take guns away do it, lets only allow 10 round magazines, oh wait that's too much, make it 7, etc.......give them an inch they will take a mile & violence and crime will not change because of anything they do. Its time to take a stand people. Take away gun rights from American citizens, then give amnesty to law breakers, where will it end?

Thank you Mr. Duncan for working towards employment growth! However, I would like to be able to get, at the very least, some 22 bullets for hunting purposes! How is it that there are none to be found? As far as that goes, any amunition! And how does the government that we have control our world so much that the shelves are empty in every store? THIS IS TOO MUCH POWER!

That's why I voted for him. Common sense.
