TULSA, Okla. —
The so-called assault weapons ban in New York has one Oklahoma lawmaker thinking ahead.
Republican State Representative Dan Kirby of Tulsa has asked New-York based gun manufacturer Remington to consider relocating to Oklahoma.
Kirby sent a letter to Remington letting them know that Oklahoma offers a lot of incentives such as the Quality Jobs Act and a five-year property tax exemption for manufacturers.
Kirby says he got the idea after hearing reports of the so-called assault rifle ban in New York state.
Remington produces hunting rifles, shotguns, handguns and ammunition.
