Gun freedom = jobs.

Beretta arms is coming to Tennessee and bringing with them 300 new jobs.

Why did they leave Maryland?

Jeff Reh, general counsel for Beretta, said the company was looking a state that supported Second Amendment rights,and had other key attributes, including a competitive tax environment, good quality of life and was focused on corporate recruitment....
.....Beretta is among a growing number of gun manufacturers nationwide that have been courted by states pitching themselves as more gun-friendly......
....Last year, for instance, one of the nation's largest gun manufacturers, Remington Arms, has been looking at sites around Nashville for a potential corporate relocation or expansion that would likely include hundreds of manufacturing jobs.

  4. Tennessee still lags the national unemployment rate, with 8.1 percent of the population unemployed as of November, compared with 6.7 percent nationwide.

    1. A lot of that has to do with population shifts and the way those numbers are calculated. Its not a good true statistic to look at for how the state is doing.

  5. You know, I could have sworn a week or so ago that you said it wasn't the state's business to create jobs here in TN. So which is it, Stacey? Did the state help Beretta with its relocation decision by providing a competitive tax environment and touting its stance on gun ownership or didn't it?

    1. Tom, that is just another area where you are confused. The state did not create those jobs. Baretta did. We just created a business friendly enviroment for them to locate here. If you read their own statement they said gun freedom was one of the reasons they left their old state and one of the reasons they came to Tennessee. As if you haven't noticed, I have done a lot of work expanding those gun freedoms. So your welcome for making it so Baretta felt like Tennessee was a good place to invest their 45 million and give our state their jobs (not state jobs).

    2. Yes... You're like a rabid dog when it comes to "expanding" gun freedoms. And I'd just as soon TN NOT be a place that welcomes devices that are used to hurt and kill others. That's hardly something to be proud of.
      I'd be just as outraged if TN became known for not helping uninsured residents obtain health coverage. Oh wait! We're already known for that too!
