Butler: Gun changes might affect Remington – Proposed changes in state’s gun policy could mean trouble for local gun manufacturer Remington Arms of Ilion, said one local lawmaker. Gov. Andrew Cuomo in Wednesday’s State of the State address proposed tightening loopholes on the state’s assault weapon ban. Assemblyman Marc Butler, R-Newport, questioned whether Cuomo will expand the definition of an assault weapon. “The key part will be what the language is,” he said.
