Maryland gun-grabbers are now grabbing jobs away from workers in their state. Forward!
You see, gun manufacturer Beretta has just about had it. How can a company function where it is being legislated and regulated out of business? As Sen. Feinstein (D-Calif.) said, the goal is to “dry up the supply.” As Twitchy reported last week, Magpul Industries is leading the charge in Colorado. They, too, may move out of a state due to gun-grabbing legislation.

'Why expand in a place where the people who built the gun couldn't buy it?' asks Berreta official. http://t.co/KpJJMsxjUn

More from The Washington Post:
“Why expand in a place where the people who built the gun couldn’t buy it?” said Jeffrey Reh, general counsel for Beretta.
Concern that the company will leave, and take its 300 jobs with it, is palpable among state lawmakers who worry it could be collateral damage from Gov. Martin O’Malley’s proposed gun-control bill.
“I’m concerned. I think they’re going to move,” said Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller Jr. (D-Calvert). “They sell guns across the world and in every state in the union — to places a lot more friendly to the company than this state.”
They aren’t bluffing, and he knows it. Beretta already moved its warehouse to Virginia, after an onslaught of new gun-grabbing laws in Maryland in the 1990s.
And, like with Magpul, freedom-loving citizens in other states welcome Beretta.

Will he? Stay tuned! In the meantime, gun rights advocates, like this Twitter user, are standing strong with Beretta.
