Gun manufacturer Beretta is closing up shop in the anti-Second Amendment People’s Republic of Maryland and moving to the Free State of Tennessee, taking 300 jobs and millions of dollar in tax revenue with them.
Last year, Maryland’s one-party totalitarian government passed an anti-gun law so strict that most of Beretta’s products were illegal for residents of the state to buy. And beyond that, the new law treats those who would purchase a handgun like criminals, forcing them to be fingerprinted and subjecting them to constant and ongoing state scrutiny. The law also includes a registration requirement; which is the precursor to the inevitable confiscation that will eventually follow.
Clearly, the purpose of this law was not to keep guns away from criminals, but from law-abiding citizens.
Note: Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley has his eyes set on the Presidency of the United States; so he can share his anti-gun fanaticism, as well as his zeal for tax increases, lavish public spending, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and environmental extremism to all Americans.
