One of the world’s oldest manufacturing companies has decided that it wants to move to a state that actually supports the 2nd amendment rather than continuously opposing it.
Beretta is taking one of its plants and 300 jobs out of Maryland after the state passed restrictive gun control laws that do next to nothing to stop violent criminals and everything to tie the hands of law abiding citizens.
The company has decided to move to gun friendly Tennessee where it has invested $45 million in a new facility. According to the Tennessean,
“It’s a spectacular opportunity for Gallatin, and it allows for the visibility that Gallatin deserves,” said James Fenton, executive director of the Gallatin Economic Development Agency. “It’s certainly the most prestigious announcement I’ve had the opportunity to be involved with.”
Beretta is the world’s oldest manufacturing dynasty, operating since 1526 in Italy. The company is privately owned and operated by members of the 15th and 16th generations of the Beretta family. Beretta supplies quality sporting and self-defense firearms to consumers worldwide. The company manufactures the U.S. Armed Forces M-9 pistol, the standard sidearm of U.S. soldiers since 1985.
“I want to thank the Beretta family for their substantial investment in Tennessee and the 300 jobs they’ll create in Sumner County,” Haslam said. “Beretta is one of the world’s great companies, and its commitment to excellence and Tennessee’s rich history in manufacturing make today’s announcement a great match as we continue toward our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs.”
For much of the past year, Beretta has been scouting for locations for a manufacturing facility after the state of Maryland passed stricter gun legislation, company officials said. The family-owned, Italian company had expressed frustration about the new laws and said it might be looking for a new home for a factory currently located in Accokeek, Maryland.
Jeff Reh, general counsel for Beretta, said the company was looking a state that supported Second Amendment rights,and had other key attributes, including a competitive tax environment, good quality of life and was focused on corporate recruitment.
So not only will Maryland be out of 300 more jobs, but its citizens will be asked to believe a false premise that these gun control laws will actually make them safer.
As gun manufacturers continue to move out of states that refuse to support 2nd amendment rights, these anti-gun states will be losing thousands of jobs. But if lawmakers continue to push through anti-gun laws it may well be the lawmakers who end up without work,
