Ilion, NY (WIBX) -Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney is speaking out on behalf of Remington Arms in Ilion.

According to the lawmaker, in a letter addressed to Empire State Development President, Kenneth Adams, Manhattan senator, Liz Krueger, called for the end of subsidies to the longtime firearm manufacturer.

Krueger allegedly claimed Remington’s subsidies are inappropriate and that the products can not be sold or owned by New Yorkers.

Tenney says Krueger’s statements contain several misconceptions and wrong facts.

Currently, Remington Arms receives Empire State Development subsidies totaling $1.1 million each year.

But, Tenney says this is no time to introduce a political agenda.

“In the wake of recent events, it is important that lawmakers do not use tragedy to politicize their legislative agenda,” Tenney says. “…Right now is not the time to attack responsible, law-abiding gun owners; and right now is not the time to throw caution to the wind and condemn a time honored industry…”

Remington Arms has been in business for nearly 200 years and employs 1,350 people.
