It looks like Maryland Democrats are as keen as Colorado Democrats to push gun company’s to more freedom-loving states:
The Maryland Senate approved a sweeping gun-control bill Thursday that would give the state one of the strictest firearm laws in the country.
The contentious issue moved immediately to the House of Delegates, where the chamber’s first public hearing on the bill and a rally by supporters are expected to draw thousands to Annapolis on Friday.
The Senate’s 28-19 vote in support of Gov. Martin O’Malley‘s bill came after more than 12 hours of often-emotional debate Wednesday and Thursday. Supporters said the proposal — which would ban the sale of assault-type rifles and require a license to purchase a handgun — would save lives.
Beretta has already warned the state that it will not stay in a state where it cannot sell its products to residents, and they will take all their jobs and tax revenue with them. West Virginia is already lobbying Beretta to move there, and I’m sure they aren’t the only contender.
It must be great to live in a state where your citizens don’t need jobs.
