Not too long ago we wrote a post questioning Beretta USA why they didn’t leave the oppressive state of Maryland. Now Maryland has forced Beretta to do something they appeared to be so against, leave Maryland and move to a more gun friendly state.
From the opposing views article:
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. Despite being such a prominent player in the local economy, Beretta was unable to prevent legislators from passing tighter gun control laws. Ironically, Beretta manufactures some firearms that are now banned in Maryland.
If you were to ask my what broke the straw of the camels back, so to speak, it would be this simple fact: Beretta manufactures some firearms that are now banned in Maryland. Can’t blame a company for moving when you outlaw their products.
I guess Maryland’s legislators Unconstitutional “moral compass” is worth more to them than tax revenue. Surprisingly so, since most politicians are worthless and care more about money than true principle.
P.S. – Dear Beretta, If you’re reading this North Carolina welcomes you!
