This is great news for our area because Remington is the biggest employer in the valley.You either have family who work there or know many people who
work there or have worked there.I only have one problem with this news about the M24 rifles being made by Remington Arms and that is why does the
government need that many of them now?
I am against guns being in homes only because of a persanol issue.Does anyone know why they need so many new guns made for the army,navy,marines ect
I have read many reports about this new contract and have yet to see anything as to why so many are needed.Are they expecting a new war?Anyway here is
a bit of news for all to see and discuss.Please enjoy!
