Beretta has had a bad time of it from the MD General Assembly, as have all us Marylanders. They would like to expand into a firearm-friendly state.
VA would be logical for them, but the possibility of having to go through the same sort of nonsense that Maryland has shoveled onto their plate is causing them to keep looking.
Now that MD is pretty well lost to the progressives, they're moving to Northern VA to escape the high taxes that their policies have inflicted on MD. The fear is that they will bring the same agenda to VA.
I'd like to leave MD for VA, and it'd probably not turn into what I am trying to escape, in what's left of my lifetime. But I certainly hope we get a swing toward the center in this country pretty soon.
