WOODBURY - A Long Island state Assemblyman is questioning whether a New York gun manufacturer should continue to receive tax subsidies from the state.

The Remington Arms Company, which has been manufacturing weapons in an Ilion, N.Y. factory for 200 years, employs nearly 1,000 people and has received nearly $6 million in subsidies over three years.

Assemblyman Charles Lavine (D-Glen Cove) says he thinks the state should re-evaluate how tax dollars are spent, especially in light of the recent tragedies.
