Okay, I tried snopes and other online sources and can't find any account that verifies this. There is a news story about Remington offering their resources, but thats all.
I hate to think some pro gun factions are stooping to the leftist tactic of false news!
Yes, I verified it before I even posted it so before you accuse me of spreading "false news" you might want to work on your internet research skills a little. Also, you're worried about the "leftist tactic of false news" yet you're using Snopes, a website run by leftists to verify this story?
First of all the guy in this video does not BS, if he reports something he verifies it himself. I've watched enough of his videos to know he's on the level. Look him up yourself, he has a great reputation. He's a law enforcement officer who runs a pro 2nd Amendment youtube channel on the side.
Second of all, the CEO of Remington publicly stated on March 23rd that he sent a letter to Governor Cuomo and President Trump stating they were willing to help with production and distribution of PPE and ventilators. The company has a plant in Ilion, totaling 1 million square feet, that is now freed up since they have been designated as a non-essential business.
It's now April 3rd and Governor Cuomo has yet to accept that offer even though he's publicly pleaded for companies to make ventilators:
Here he is pleading for anyone to make ventilators, this quote is from March 19th:
"But you can't buy a ventilator right now, uh, globally. You can't buy them. We're going to have to make them or make something like them."
Again on March 24th:
Here's a quote from Cuomo from yesterday:
"We need supplies.
We need your help.
If you can manufacture PPE I implore you to do so. NYS will pay a premium.
Email [email protected]"
"Eric Suarez, communications and media manager for Remington, told Townhall on Friday that to his knowledge, the state still has not accepted Remington's offer to help."
Is that good enough for you or do you need to see it on Snopes?
