Italian gun maker Beretta said Wednesday that Tennessee's support for gun rights was a major factor in its decision to build a manufacturing and research facility in the Nashville suburb of Gallatin.
Beretta has eliminated Virginia from its short list of states to move its company because anti-gun Democrat Terry McAuliffe was elected governor. Executives made the decision to scratch Virginia off the list after the McAuliffe campaign fixated on restricting gun owners' rights after receiving $1 million campaign donation from billionaire New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg.
The company pared a list of "traditional true blood Second Amendment states" and chose from there, said Beretta general counsel and vice-general manager Jeff Reh, in an earlier interview with The Sportsman Channel.
"We started our search by looking only at states that have a consistent history of support for and likelihood of future support for Second Amendment rights," Beretta general counsel Jeff Reh said in a statement.
