    On January 29th, Beretta USA officials joined with Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) to announce the firearm manufacturer will be opening its new plant in Gallatin, TN. Beretta had been looking for a location for its new facility after deciding to leave Maryland over the draconian gun laws that state implemented in spring 2013.

    On December 23rd, Breitbart News reported that Virginia was on the short list for possible states in which Beretta might open a plant, but the gun maker scratched VA off the list because of newly-elected Governor Terry McAuliffe's (D) gun control stance.

    According to Beretta, the company will "invest $45 million in a state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D facility" in Gallatin. Construction of the new facility is expected to be completed this year and will provide hundreds of new jobs in Tennessee.

    At Wednesday's announcement, Gov. Haslam said, "Attracting a legendary company like Beretta reinforces our goal of becoming the No. 1 in the Southeast for high-quality jobs. I want to thank the Beretta family for their substantial investment in Tennessee and the 300 jobs they'll create in Sumner County."

    Beretta Executive Vice President Franco Gussalli Beretta said that from the moment Beretta announced they wanted to move outside of Maryland, "Gov. Haslam and his economic team did an excellent job of demonstrating the benefits of doing business in Tennessee."

    I have a lot more respect for Beretta because they moved. Now for some other NE gun manufacturers to follow suit.

    Good for Beretta! The rest of the firearms industry needs to wise up and get out of New England and move to right to work states with Republican governors. Why would you stay somewhere when you are not wanted?

    If the libs keep chasing away their tax base who will pay for their social programs? Hint: Detroit, California, New York.

    Good for you Beretta. :thumbup:

    All the manufacturers need to move out of neo-fascist and neo-communist states and then stop supplying them with their products.

    The feds will do away with states. That way the commie states won't have to compete.
