In this Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013 photo, vehicles leave the Remington Arms Company at lunch break, in Ilion, N.Y. Residents in this blue-collar stretch of the Mohawk Valley are defending Remington after New York lawmakers banned the sale of semi-automatic assault-style rifles like the Bushmaster weapon made here. The move came after the weapon was linked to gunmen in the Connecticut school shootings and in the Christmas Eve slayings of two firefighters in western New York. (AP Photo/Mike Groll)
