Let your voice be heard!
As you know, the State of Maryland, which has been home to Beretta USA, Benelli USA, Stoeger Industries and the hundreds of families that work here, is considering legislation that will severely limit the Second Amendment rights of its citizens. We ask you to join us and the thousands of others who are voicing their opposition to this legislation, by adding your name to the list of Second Amendment supporters who are asking that Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley's proposed anti-gun legislation (SB 281) be prevented from passing.
Beretta will pass your sentiments along to the Judiciary Committee. Please note that Beretta will not use your information for any other purpose, nor share it with any other organization.
In addition to the above information, here is the text that will be sent to the Judiciary Committee:
As you know, Governor Martin O’Malley has proposed legislation in the State of Maryland that would, among other things, prohibit the sale within the State of certain models of semiautomatic rifles and shotguns and of firearm magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.
Beretta U.S.A., Benelli U.S.A. and Stoeger Industries make or sell these products and the legislation, if passed, will hurt the Maryland economy. Many of these companies' employees also live in Maryland and I worry about the negative message this legislation sends to all of them and to the owners of their companies.
The Governor's legislation also attacks my Second Amendment rights and adds administrative complexity and cost to my ability to buy a firearm without providing a commensurate benefit.
For these reasons I ask that you vote against the Governor's legislation. If the Bill makes it to the floor for debate I ask that you not vote for cloture.
