Beretta says it won’t relocate to W.Va., cites Manchin as reason

Maryland-based firearm manufacturer Beretta USA will not relocate its operations to West Virginia, company officials said, despite courting from state lawmakers and municipalities around the state.

Beretta’s general counsel Jeffrey Reh blamed Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., for the company’s decision.

In a letter to the Hardy County Rural Development Authority, Reh wrote that Beretta analyzed each state that offered the company a new home to determine its stance on Second Amendment rights.

“As a consequence of that analysis and especially due to Senator Manchin’s recent legislative choices we have decided not to consider your State for our future plans of expansion,” he wrote.
