News release from Congressman Marlin Stutzman (R-IN 3rd):
Stutzman Renews Invitation for Maryland Gun Manufacturer to Move to Indiana
As Maryland Governor signs sweeping gun law, Stutzman says, “Hoosiers are ready to welcome manufacturers like Beretta with open arms”
(May 16, 2013) Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman renewed his invitation for Maryland gun manufacturer Beretta to move to Indiana’s pro-business environment after Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed sweeping gun regulations into law this morning:
“Maryland’s new gun law is oppressive, restricts the freedoms of law-abiding citizens and creates a hostile business environment for Beretta. On the other hand, Hoosiers’ respect for the 2nd Amendment remains steadfast, as does our favorable business environment. We would value Beretta’s business in our state and welcome the company with open arms.”
- On February 6, 2013, Beretta USA testified before Maryland’s Senate Judiciary Committee, arguing that S.B. 281 would create a business environment hostile to firearms manufacturers.
- On March 5, 2013, Stutzman sent a letter to Beretta USA, asking the gun maker to consider relocating their U.S. headquarters from Maryland to Indiana. Â AFW post
