Yea, I want my C&R to make it easier to buy firearms online. Most of what interests me is C&R qualified.

BERETTA TO BOLT MARYLAND IF DEM GOVERNOR'S ANTI-GUN BILL PASSES…

We're quite sure the state of Texas will welcome you with open arms.

On the production floor of Beretta USA sits a hulking new barrel-making machine ready to churn out the next object of obsession in America’s love-hate relationship with guns: a civilian version of a machine gun designed for special operations forces and popularized in the video game Call of Duty.

Beretta, the nearly 500-year-old family-owned company that made one of James Bond’s firearms, has already invested more than $1 million in the machine and has planned to expand its plant further in Prince George’s County to ramp up production.

But under an assault-weapons ban that advanced late last week in the Maryland General Assembly, experts say the gun would be illegal in the state where it is produced.

Now Beretta is weighing whether the rifle line, and perhaps the company itself, should stay in a place increasingly hostile toward its products. Its iconic 9mm pistol — carried by every U.S. soldier and scores of police departments — would also be banned with its high capacity, 13-bullet magazine.

“Why expand in a place where the people who built the gun couldn’t buy it?” said Jeffrey Reh, general counsel for Beretta.

Concern that the company will leave, and take its 300 jobs with it, is palpable among state lawmakers who worry it could be collateral damage from Gov. Martin O’Malley’s proposed gun-control bill.

Among other restrictions, O’Malley’s bill would ban assault rifles, magazines with more than 10 bullets and any new guns with two or more “military-like” features. Gun experts said it’s a near-certainty that Beretta’s semiautomatic version of the ARX-160, now only a prototype, would be banned under O’Malley’s bill.

Tyleete Bruce I like that the gun makers aren't taking these stupid new laws (or attempts at) lightly. They have as much right to defend their product and company, as we do our lives.

Very poor job at deflecting, moron.

Here is my post to him: "A little more info on FFL-03 C&R license holders. C&R FFL's (also called Crufflers) are NOT dealers in any way shape or form. They are collectors of curio and relic firearms only. An FFL-03 is NOT a license to do business in firearms. What the license does is keep the buyer from having to go through a background check every time they by a C&R firearm, and they can receive direct shipment of C&R firearms if bought out of state. http://www.cruffler.com/whatis.html" ;

Here is your response: "And as usual you would be wrong."

No one was talking about illegal gun sales or crooked dealers. Now are you going to prove how I am wrong, or are you going to just continue to dodge and deflect....as usual?

Yes, the Southern version of Jesus approves of slavery, pure hatred, racism, liberalism, and reminds me of the Mafia Jesus who forgives murder and all other crimes.
It would be heaven even if it only meant that those people won’t be there.

I see that it’s those in power who want a police state (NWO), and that’s not Democrats, except for a few idiots.
Washington State is mostly Republican, and recently had a buy-back of guns for $100. They had to stop it 2 hours early because they had spent $35,000 and were going to destroy all those guns. Some people tried to buy the guns from those waiting in line, but people were refusing, saying the purpose was to get the guns off the street ?!? Those people were idiots who will live to regret their stupidity.

Only an idiot would believe that any politician would give up millions of votes to get a few.

You’re poorly informed about Southern Politics. Georgia elected Republican Sonny Purdue governor in 2002. He was the first Republican Governor since reconstruction.

The reality is Republicans did poorly in the South until very recently.

You’re equally misinformed in religion in the South. The South is very religious.

I lived in NY for 25 years followed by living in Georgia for 26 years before ending up in Florida. I can tell you from firsthand experience the North is far more racist than the South. You’re clueless.

Where do you glean your information from? It has a brown tinge to it. Been digging it out of your backside again?

If government grows in social programs. it gains massive power. It takes from others and interferes with the way of life. Now you say Democrats are freedom loving. Can't remain that way if you are expanding programs for every utopian conquest. Look, the war on poverty should be finished. Poverty is worse! For it has been institutionalized!

This is about as accurate and worded best as I have seen.

But all in all this should never be looked at about race at all. We are all Americans and that should be the only thing that counts. The PC side of things is simply to create a divide in the people.

If you look at all of the "Government" issues on Race they have created 90% of the divide.

I do not care what color my friends skin is , I only care that if he in in America , he be here legally.
Being an American is who we are and we all bleed the same color.
