Consequences. Actions have consequences, and recognizing that is one of the signs of maturity in a person. And that being true, it looks like anti-2A activists and politicians aren’t very mature individuals.
But we already knew that, didn’t we? After all, they keep blaming the tool (a firearm) for the actions of a person, which is completely illogical.
But going back to consequences, there are consequences that are easy to predict and some that are less easy to predict (to be fair). Frankly, today’s story is about a consequence that should have been as plain as day to anyone with any kind of awareness of reality. Allan Stein writes,
In the village of Ilion, New York, 80 miles west of the state capital in Albany, residents are mourning the departure of gunmaker Remington Arms Co. after two centuries of continuous operation.
Without fanfare, the company announced last month that the manufacturing plant would be closing its doors on March 4, 2024.
“I feel like a family member has died,” Ilion Mayor John Stephens told The Epoch Times. “My dad raised four kids on a paycheck from there for 37 years. He walked to work and carried his lunch every day.”
Mr. Stephens said no one expected the announcement a week after Thanksgiving that the plant was set to close.
On Nov. 30, at 3:26 p.m., the company notified village officials of the decision by email. The message noted that “all separations” with the village would be completed by March 18, 2024.
Likewise, the company notified its 270 employees that they would soon be out of a job.
Now, I don’t want to be mean to the people of Ilion as, frankly, I don’t have any idea if they voted for the anti-gun legislature and governors that New York has had back-to-back-to-back.
But whoever did vote for those clowns like the New York Attorney General who made it her personal mission to go after the NRA and gun manufacturers like Remington, those people are directly to blame for this tragedy in this small town.
Now, people are scrambling to figure out how they’re going to feed their families in this tough economy.
And anti-2A zealots will simply laugh off these folks’ suffering as a “win” in what can only be called a win if you care about political points over real human suffering and struggles.
The voters in New York who voted for the anti-gun politicians are to blame for these people’s coming unemployment, and the anti-2A politicians and bureaucrats are a close second to blame for it, too.
Shame on them.
