Jeffrey Reh...announced that the company would begrudgingly uproot and take its business elsewhere.

followed by

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.
So which is it Jeff?


Or is this just corporate business-speak?

I really do hate it for the Beretta workers, many of whom prolly have had nothing to do w/ the political response to the recent shooting. OTOH, it's just like Obama has said many times, "Elections have consequences." Guess what.......passing stupid new laws, due to a reactionary and emotion charged response to a horrible incident, have consequences also....


Screw those fools. They voted for the people. They voted against their own interests not they can head to the unemployment line like everyone else. Pretty soon. There wont be a fire arms manfacturer North of Okalahoma and west of Arizona.

I don't have a problem with it. As long as gun control stays on a state level, aka the commie states, it's not a big deal for me. When they start pushing federal stuff, that's when I'm weary.

EDIT: but I know the risks of letting them pass at a state level, regardless of where it is. They'll bland neighboring states for not being hard enough on guns.

It behooves all of us to have three sets of weapons, one they know about two that they dont. Remember the addage 2 is 1, 1 is none. Within the next year I'm about to go full prepper.

re: Beretta leaving Maryland due to new gun laws...


why are the majority of the people in this thread ignoring the fact that he said

"we are not willing to do this"

That sure sounds like they hate the situation but yet are still not willing to move.....

Or am I reading something wrong?

I think he spoke wrong, they have come out and said several times they don't want too leave, but I think they'll do it if they have too.

But, I'm sure there are a lot of Beretta plant workers who DID NOT vote for the politicians who passed the laws. It would be like a bunch of state legislators in south LA passing laws that end up affecting MY job way up here in north LA. I may not have voted for them, but it would mess up life, nevertheless. BTW, I've no problem w/ south LA state legilators as a whole, but just using that as an example.

I'm just thinking he misspoke or was misquoted. What if he said, "We are not willingly doing this..."?

I never understood why these gun manufacturers set up shop in these commie states to begin with. Their voting preference did not change over night they have been liberal for many decades. The American hunters and gun owners should have called them on the carpet when Clinton was gun grabbing.
