In response to Maryland’s strict gun control laws, Beretta USA has decided to move their operations in the state down to Tennessee. Their new facility in Gallatin was originally slated for the development and testing of new products, but it will now be a manufacturing site for the company. Beretta USA’s move is set to create 300 new jobs for the state of Tennessee.
Jeff Cooper, General Manager for the Beretta U.S.A. Corporation said in a press release:
“We have not yet begun groundbreaking on the Tennessee facility and we do not anticipate that that building will be completed until the middle part of 2015. That timing, combined with our need to plan an orderly transition of production from one facility to the other so that our delivery obligations to customers are not disrupted, means that no Beretta U.S.A. Maryland employee will be impacted by this news for many months. More importantly, we will use this time to meet with every Beretta U.S.A. employee whose Maryland job might be affected by the move to discuss with them their interest in taking a position at our new facility in Tennessee or, if they are not willing to do so, to lay out a long-term strategy for remaining with the Company while our production in Maryland continues.”
Although liberals persist with their incessant assault on the Second Amendment, firearm companies continue to thrive and create jobs for Americans. Let us know what you think of Beretta’s move in the comments section.
