ALERT: Beretta's fed up! Promises to leave Maryland?

*** Like MagPul, they've warned them; looks like Beretta's about to get outta Dodge:

Beretta Promises They Will Leave Maryland

Posted on April 5, 2013 by Dan Zimmerman

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.”

It won't happen. It gets introduced every so often so liberal government "officials" can pretend to earn the money they collect from the useful idiot liberal citizens. It is a game. He knows it wont pass, but he will introduce it so that his constituents and funders will look at him as if he did something -or at least tried to do something.

they don't care..... it is

they don't care..... it is all about a one world government/communist world order. They do not give a crap about any gun manufacturer. Beretta is the enemy to them. Until the gun industry gets it figured out what is going on, they will continue to be in the dark.

Texas is the only acceptable choice.

Texas equals bigger guns for everybody!

Maybe VA. Maybe TN. Where ever looks as if there is the most freedom.
