While Mr. Beretta lives in Italy, where he runs one of the world's major gun manufacturers, most Marylanders favor proactive legislation to prevent another Sandy Hook and reduce the more than 90 gun deaths that occur every day in America. That's why the state banned assault weapons and high-capacity magazines and required first time handgun buyers to undergo training, as well as licensing and fingerprinting. Mr. Beretta says Maryland was simply "disrespecting" and harassing gun owners, and for that reason, he says, the company is sending some jobs to more gun-friendly Tennessee. Ugo's message? Allow AK-47s and untrained gun owners — or else.
