New legislation is forcing gun manufacturing company Beretta to uproot and take their business elsewhere.
Established in 1526, Beretta holds the distinction of being the oldest active firearms manufacturer in the world. The U.S. factory is located in Accokeek, Maryland, and has been a staple of the local economy for years.

Beretta 92: total junk.
“The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and : security; but standing armies in time of peace, are dangerous to • liberty, and shall not be tolerated, and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power.”
Texas, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama and Idaho are actively competing to attract gun manufacturers and gun related industry to their states. Between that and Beretta’s warning, Maryland Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D) stated “I’m concerned. I think they’re going to move. They sell guns across the world and in every state of the union-to places a lot more friendly to the company than this state.” Interestingly enough, Magpul out of Colorado, should it move, will bring along with it the plastics industry it supports, meaning more jobs lost for Colorado.
