US gunmaker Remington files for bankruptcy

The oldest gun manufacturer in the US, Remington Outdoor, has filed for bankruptcy amid demands for stronger gun control across the country.

    One of the oldest gun manufacturers in the United States has filed for bankruptcy, just days after millions of Americans took to the streets calling for tougher gun laws.

    Remington Outdoor Company blames some of its troubles on the election of US President Donald Trump, and says the current political climate has made it impossible to find new investors.
