Beretta Leaves Maryland Because of Stricter Gun Laws
 
Beretta Announces They Will Leave Maryland

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/society/guns/beretta-leaves-maryland-following-stricter-gun-laws

Beretta’s had enough of Maryland’s ever-more restrictive gun laws and announced they’ll abandon their facilities in Accokeek for a more firearms-friendly locale. From opposingviews.com: “Beretta warned that stricter gun control laws would push the company outside of state lines, but that didn’t stop Maryland legislators. Jeffrey Reh, a spokesman for Beretta who also serves as the President of Stoeger Industries under Beretta, announced that the company would begrudgingly uproot and take its business elsewhere. He said, ‘We don’t want to do this, we’re not willing to do this, but obviously this legislation has caused us a serious level of concern within our company.’ He added that Beretta paid approximately $31 million in taxes, employs 400 people, and had invested $73 million in the business over the past several decades.”

Maryland's a horrible state anyway. I can smell the difference in the air every time I cross over into the state. Everything from their insane vehicle registration to the ridiculous amount of Nelly wanna-be's.

I think I'm going to buy two Beretta's very soon just because of the move.

Obama most likely carried that district. The people who vote for Democrats and Rinos deserve the unemployment lines. :(

Georgia or Alabama will greet them with open arms and tax breaks.

They are in the middle of discussions with Mississippi. I'm sure there are a couple of different places they're looking at.

I'll post up a letter I found...

This is directly from Mississippi's speaker of the house, Philip Gunn's (interesting coincidence on the last name, dont'cha think?) facebook page.

According to Mr. Gunn, Remington is also looking at moving at least some of their manufacturing there.

I miss Mississippi...
