OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma lawmaker is inviting a gun manufacturer to relocate in the Sooner state after New York banned assault rifles.

Thursday Rep. Dan Kirby said he would like to invite Remington to consider Oklahoma as its new gun manufacturing location.

Kirby said, “I was just reading about the backlash from an Ilion, N.Y., Remington gun factory and I wanted to get the word out that many Oklahoma lawmakers would welcome gun manufacturing jobs in our state and would like an opportunity to talk to Remington about our incentive programs and friendly business climate.”

Kirby noted Oklahoma has several manufacturing incentives available to companies that bring jobs to the state.

He mentioned the Oklahoma Quality Jobs Act and a 5-year property tax exemption for manufacturers.

State lawmakers have enacted lawsuit reform in past year and are working this year to reform the state workers’ compensation system.

    of course add in the workers compensation reform. Any reform is going to be to help the companies and not the employees. If you get hurt OH WELL that is your problem. Spend a fortune trying to prove it. Let us also reform the safety system for companies and make it easier on them with less safety restrictions. hmmmmm

    It's hard to be productive and support your community, if the community doesn't support what you do.
    Come to Oklahoma where we support what you stand for.

    We love our guns, our governor and our Republican legislature that loves and respects the 2nd amendment of the Constitution of the United States…..and our taxes are lower, our work ethic and unemployement is better, housing and cost of living is lower….everything is better in Oklahoma. We don't have Broadway….but we have The Cowboys and the Sooners. oh….and we love your guns.

    It would be a great boost for the state economy and besides who wouldn't want to work for one of the top firearms makers in the world.

    Remington- Oklahoma welcomes you! We have been raised with the idea that people kill – guns are just a tool – We have seen what can be done with "fertilizer" and know that crazy people are resourceful. We can appreciate an American's right to bear arms for the protection or just for hunting and sport. Bring your production to us and we will show you a work force that can produce results, an progressive economy and governmental leaders (visit OKC) with foresight and futurist goals!
