Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley joined state and local leaders in Huntsville on Monday to welcome gun manufacturer Remington Outdoor Co., which plans to open a new plant in the area.
Six months ago, the nation was horrified that a deranged man entered Sandy Hook Elementary School and killed 20 young children and six educators.
"We undertook a very rigorous process, examining labor, quality of life, business climate and, of course, pro-gun policies," he said. "Huntsville won hands-down. In addition to being everything we needed in all those categories, it had a phenomenal home for us in an existing facility which allows us to hit the ground running."
Still, he said, choosing a site from among the proposals offered by two dozen states was not a simple task.
