Beretta to move after Maryland passes strict gun laws

Italian gun manufacturer Beretta, one of the biggest and oldest gun companies in the world, plans to follow through with its threat to leave the state of Maryland after new gun regulations would ban one of its own 9mm pistols with its 13-round capacity. ¬†Previously, Beretta moved one of its warehouses to Virginia after the state’s last gun control¬†maneuver.

Once again, politicians are using their power to enact gun laws that not only fail to make state residents more safe, but actively discourage business in the state. ¬†Over the decades of calling Maryland their U.S. home, Beretta has contributed more than $30 million to the state’s treasury and currently employs more than 400 people.
