NASHVILLE, Tenn.– Gallatin Industrial Park will be the new site for Beretta USA’s firearms manufacturing and R&D facility.
The move is expected to bring 300 new jobs in Sumner County according to Governor Bill Haslam. The facility itself will see an investment of $45 million dollars.
Executive vice-president Franco Gussalli Beretta says Governor Haslam and his economic team played a large role in “demonstrating the benefits of doing business in the state.”
Construction is expected to be completed this year.
Beretta had announced their plans to move from Maryland after the recent gun control measures passed, and we were waiting for it to happen. I have several thoughts, but I’m tempted to say that Beretta is the loser because they didn’t choose South Carolina.
Honestly though, Maryland is the real loser in all of this, as is Connecticut, Colorado, and any other state that pursues these idiotic gun control measures. And let’s be clear about one thing before the objection even gets raised like it was for Smith & Wesson when they announced that they were pulling out of the California market. These companies are doing what they must to survive. We gun owners are faithful rewarders of our friends and allies, and relentless and unforgiving punishers of compromisers.
Smith & Wesson, Remington, Kimber, Colt, Rock River Arms, Springfield Armory, are you listening?
