Remington Arms recently announced plans to relocate its headquarters from Ilion, N.Y., to LaGrange, Ga., where it intends to open a new factory and research center. Through this, Remington will invest $100 million and create over 850 jobs throughout a five-year period.

“Georgia's firearms industry is responsible for thousands of jobs and millions of dollars of investment in our communities,” said Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) in a press release. “I am a proud owner of some of Remington’s first-class product, and now, I am excited to welcome them to their new home in the Peach State. As yet another big manufacturing win for our state, I look forward to seeing the oldest firearms manufacturer in America thrive in Georgia's pro-business environment.”

Founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, America’s oldest firearms manufacturer will now take another step away from state it has been in for more than 200 years. This is not the Remington’s first move, either. In 2014, the company shifted two production lines from Ilion to Huntsville, Ala.

“We are very excited to come to Georgia, a state that not only welcomes business but enthusiastically supports and welcomes companies in the firearms industry,” said Ken D’Arcy, Remington CEO.

This move comes as part of a broader trend where firearms and accessories manufacturers have chosen to leave states that are ostensibly anti-freedom in favor of those that defend your constitutional rights.

Recently, Smith & Wesson announced it is leaving Massachusetts for Tennessee, citing legislative concerns amongst a host of other reasons. We’ve also written about this trend at in great detail and you can read more about that here.
