Beretta to Maryland: Enact gun laws and we may be outta here

Beretta to Maryland: Enact gun laws and we may be outta here

Vatic Note: I love  companies that stand, like Americans, with their nation, their people and their history.  This is one of them, however, having said that, I believe they could do serious damage/work to the power elite who want to enslave us by stating unequivocally that if they pass the gun control laws, that Beretta will apply them across the board to everyone.  That includes the government contracts as well. 

Its expensive profit wise, but other companies are doing it and going all the way.  Its the only way.  Its all they understand, nothing less. If you don't, then your only customer will be governments and guess what they have done in the past?  If you have no other customers, and they are your only customer, they will simply steal the product from you. 

That has happened to numerous computer software private companies.  The government just stole the software and never paid the company what  they owed.  This move toward tyranny is for ALL OF US, NOT JUST THE LOW, MIDDLE CLASS, BUT THE ENTIRE NATION, DEPOPULATED OF COURSE.

These *censored* mafia Bankers have no morals, or conscience, so they "take'" whatever they decide they want and they have done that already to the ubber wealthy when they stole their diamonds from the diamond market and substituted very good fakes.  If they will steal from the ubber wealthy, they will steal from you.

This isn't a game for them.  Its been in play for thousands of years through these long term blood lines.  We have to adapt to the reality of these people and give up our perceptions of our reality that do not exist, then we can decide if we want to live they way they have planned, if not, then we work our options.  Time to get educated. Your lifes work is on the line.

Beretta’s future in Maryland tied to state’s gun-control debate

On the production floor of Beretta USA sits a hulking new barrel-making machine ready to churn out the next object of obsession in America’s love-hate relationship with guns: a civilian version of a machine gun designed for special operations forces and popularized in the video game Call of Duty.

Beretta, the nearly 500-year-old family-owned company that made one of James Bond’s firearms, has already invested more than $1 million in the machine and has planned to expand its plant further in Prince George’s County to ramp up production.

But under an assault-weapons ban that advanced late last week in the Maryland General Assembly, experts say the gun would be illegal in the state where it is produced.

Now Beretta is weighing whether the rifle line, and perhaps the company itself, should stay in a place increasingly hostile toward its products. Its iconic 9mm pistol — carried by every U.S. soldier and scores of police departments — would also be banned with its high capacity, 13-bullet magazine.

“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.

Among other restrictions, O’Malley’s bill would ban assault rifles, magazines with more than 10 bullets and any new guns with two or more “military-like” features. Gun experts said it’s a near-certainty that Beretta’s semiautomatic version of the ARX-160, now only a prototype, would be banned under O’Malley’s 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.”

In Beretta’s low-slung factory along the Potomac River in Accokeek, where walls are lined with trophy heads of caribou, wild boars and black bears shot by employees, the legislation proposed by O’Malley (D) feels like an affront.

In testimony this month in Annapolis, Reh, who oversees the plant, warned lawmakers to consider carefully the company’s future. Reh pointed to the last time Maryland ratcheted up gun restrictions in the 1990s: Beretta responded by moving its warehouse operation to Virginia.

“I think they thought we were bluffing” in the 1990s, Reh said. “But Berettas don’t bluff.”

Growth of a company

The small U.S. division that Beretta started 35 years ago in Prince George’s has added substantial swagger to a company that already billed itself as the “World’s Oldest Industrial Dynasty.”

From behind the modest brick facade of an abandoned gun plant it purchased in 1977 on Indian Head Highway, Beretta won a landmark contract to become the standard sidearm of all U.S. military personnel in 1985. To the chagrin of American competitors, it soon replaced the venerable Colt 45.

More than a half-million of the company’s guns have been shipped to the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines, each stamped as made in Accokeek.
