I’m not sure its “free market” if a state is offering them many millions in corporate welfare to attract them.

There will come a day when all the Northeast gun manufacturers some going back to the early 19th century will move south of the Mason-Dixon line.

Beretta is family owned and goes back to 1526.

As the President Ugo Beretta said to Maryland lawmakers “Beretta does not bluff.”

Beretta U.S.A. has no plans to relocate its office, administrative and executive support functions from its Accokeek, Maryland facility.

Yet. BTT

Oh geez, now Lamar will make another commercial saying “he brought the gun industry to Tenn”.

He was one with that idiot Mike Hucksterbee in it saying, “Lamar single handidly brought the automobile industry to Tenn”. Really? All by himself?

Well, I guess Nissan, VW and GM “didn’t build that” after all.

I detest Lamar and I will NOT VOTE FOR HIM! I’m voting Carr in the primary.

Good! Why fund fascism with so much as one penny derived from a rights-oriented business, especially one they denigrate non-stop. If our business is not welcome here, then neither should our tax dollars be.

I’m not sure its “free market” if a state is offering them many millions in corporate welfare to attract them.

Most counties offer tax breaks to get companies to relocate here. In the long run it makes sense for the county and even the state. They get a manufacturing company and payroll going to boost the economy. In the short run for the corp it helps them to offset relocation cost and start up cost. The breaks in general are no more than 10 years usually less depending on how much the county itself has vested into it via upgrades to required utilities, roads, etc.

In 1982 Tennessee hit rock bottom in the recession. This time around jobs are still to be had here that pay decent. We have no state income tax and intent to keep it that way, we're a right to work state meaning no union involuntary dues, and we now have a two state house GOP majority for the first time in many decades. Many if not most deals are the end result of a county Commission sponsored recruitment of a corporation into an area needing jobs.

“I’m not sure its “free market” if a state is offering them many millions in corporate welfare to attract them.”

It’s moving in fees, and an investment into long-term returns on jobs and taxes. States compete too and they’d be nuts not to accept.

The great migration of firearms manufacturers to free states continues.

At this rate, the slave states won't have a single gun maker on their soil in a few more years.

During the American Civil War (or what we southerners call "The War of Northern Aggression), the south was starved of industry and arms.

When the CW2 lights off, we'll have all the industry, including the arms mfg.

What we need right now is for Mfgs to not sell, repair, buy, refinish, transfer, or mfg in any state that does not allow the citizens to own what they sell the cops....ala Ronnie Barrett of Barrett Arms.
