Maryland’s Unemployment Rolls to Swell by up to 500 People

Now that the idiots in Maryland – in competition with New York and Connecticut – have passed some of the most restrictive, oppressive gun laws in the country, I’m expecting Beretta, USA to move its corporate headquarters away from that swamp in Accokeek, MD and to a state that is more friendly toward its products and customers. The new gun control law includes the usual histrionic ban on magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds, an uninformed, quivering ban on “assault” weapons and a requirement for anyone who purchases a handgun in the state to submit their fingerprints to the State Police, effectively treating every Marylander who wants to make a constitutionally protected purchase like a criminal.

Those who have been involuntarily committed to a mental institution will not be able to legally purchase a gun either – even if they have been cured per their doctor. Of course, this doesn’t prevent anyone purchasing a gun ILLEGALLY, or through a private source, but who are we to quibble?

When the bill was still in its infancy, discussed by Maryland congressleeches, Beretta was considering leaving Maryland for a state that would be a bit more friendly toward its product.

Beretta USA executives have grown weary of the state’s attitude on guns and reportedly have backed up their threat by pointing out the company moved a warehouse to neighboring Virginia in 1990 when Maryland previously tightened gun laws.

They’ve done it before, and they should do it again.

Beretta USA employed between 330 people at its headquarters in Maryland in 2007, and press reports indicated that the company was aiming for growth at that time. Its company profile puts the number of employees as high as 500. With a workforce of 3.14 million, and 6.7 percent unemployment as of December 2012, and 210,330 people out of work in the state, another 500 unemployed would really suck.

Not that the legisleeches in Maryland give a fuck. THEY have jobs. And they are making decisions that will negatively  impact the lives of those who put them in office, to say nothing of infringing on their rights.

  1. Oh, I doubt that the leeches in Maryland “have jobs,” Nikki. More likely, they DON’T, but wouldn’t vote out any of these gun-grabbers EVER because their free ride would then be in jeopardy and they value THAT much more than the loss of their Constitutional freedoms. In other words…morons.

    1. By all accounts Beretta USA is a kind of staple of the economy over there. It would be sad if those employees lost their jobs, because the MD legislature is a bunch of scum.

  4. Nicki,

    Good post. This is definitely something to look deeper into. CT, my State, is the home of Colt Firearms, (as you well know). What will Colt do?

  5. Nicki,

    Allow me to ask you a question, if I may. And this is legit, I’m not trying to waste your time.

    In your opinion, do you find that most guys who don’t like guns, being around guns, shooting guns, etc., are kinda, you know, pussies? Or do you know males who don’t like guns who aren’t? Just a question. I’m trying to think of any males I know who don’t like guns who aren’t complete pussies.

    1. Far be it for me to answer for Nicki, but my experience is that any guy who’s “anti-gun” usually is NOT someone I’d want to have a beer with without eventually punching him out for being so stupid.

    2. Hmmmm. I’m not sure I know any guys who don’t like guns. Seriously. I know a couple who simply can’t afford to buy them, or who just choose not to keep them in the house for one reason or another, but I don’t think I know anyone who wants to disarm the populace.

      CORRECTION: I do know a couple, but I don’t hang out with them.

  7. No, the problem is, I find those that are anti-gun, have absolutely no knowledge of guns at all, other than what they watch in the movies. Seriously. The problem is those that make demands have no knowledge of what they are protesting about, look at all the so -called”gun speak” they talk about banning assault weapons for example, well since the 60’s you could not buy an assault weapon unless federally licensed, The gun show loop hole is bunk, every time a gun is purchased you already go through a background check, and the mentally handicapped are NOT allowed to purchase a weapon already. There have been many gun laws on the books for years, so it is all bunk and the media does not know there behinds from their mouths-so to speak, it is ALL about gun registration and gun confiscation, government is so out of control they have NO IDEA of the pulse of the people, nor frankly do they care, they have their own agenda-they follow with deaf ears-secure in their own world, as to what we are going to do about it. It may be fine and dandy that companies are moving out of the state and again the State does not care-they will get their pound of flesh (salary) one way or another with no skin in the game or off their back-but certainly will be off their constituents backs! So much has been taken from us, so many rights lost, so many times amendments broken the Constitution trampled on, so many reason why the POTUS should have been impeached (Benghazi-fast and furious-Libya -etc., etc.) Our SINate and CONgress have done nothing about the deficit-they keep spending and then putting on faces and telling lies, it is all a game to them, they have seriously failed the American populace. The lies that are allowed to be told-blow my mind daily, the nonsense the media spews is unconscionable. Sorry for my rant, but it is way, way passed time for the American people as a whole do not stand up and scream “I can’t take it anymore and I am mad as hell” be you democrat or republican or independent whatever-all of you have been lied to, and have been for years! and the phoney divide (race, political party, sexes, etc.)is just a distraction-because united we stand divided we fall and we are falling !!!!!
