Remington Facing Bankruptcy, Sale To Navajo Nation

From Guns.com:

Remington, America’s oldest gun company, is reportedly headed to bankruptcy and is in talks with the Navajo Nation as to its post-Chapter 11 future.

As a sovereign nation under the Navajo Sovereign Immunity Act, the tribe is largely insulated against personal injury claims, which have to be filed in the Nation’s own courts, a factor that could help Remington in persistent civil filings.

Lawsuits Can Threaten Rights

From Overlawyered:

The brief emphasizes two lines of argument that I find exactly to the point. First, under the right circumstances, the workings of tort lawsuits can impinge on individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution: exorbitant libel verdicts can menace freedom of speech, and similarly stretching of tort and public nuisance law can endanger Second Amendment rights. It is worth making explicit the parallels between the Supreme Court’s acknowledgment of the first in New York Times v. Sullivan and Congress’s recognition of the second in its passage of PLCAA.

Conn Court Rules Against Civil Rights

From Powerline Blog:

The Connecticut Supreme Court’s decision is not a good faith exercise of judicial judgment. The four-judge majority engaged in political activism by issuing an anti-gun ruling that is obviously wrong under the Constitution and federal law. It will be reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court. But there is a lesson here: liberals love to talk about the rule of law, but what they mean is rule by lawyers. Rule by lawyers who dictate policies that the people and their elected representatives don’t want, and that are likely to be at odds with the Constitution. This Connecticut decision is a prime example.

Gun Makers Flee Hostile States

From AL.com:

Remington has publicly opposed New York’s passage of the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act, which restricts gun ownership and sales. A Military Times report Friday said Remington’s decision to move to Alabama will not affect its largest facility in Illion, N.Y., but one union leader is already speaking out.

Remington, Khar and ATI Bail on New York

All three gun companies are in the process of leaving New York state because of the “SAFE Act” and taking their tax dollars with them.

The Washington Free Beacon has the story:

“It is a law forced on rural New Yorkers by a liberal elite who opposes the principles of the U.S. Constitution,” Hempel said by email. “The majority of the state wants a hands-off, non-intrusive government, which does not interfere with their right to bear arms or crush business with harmful regulation.”
