The Washington Post reports that Texas Governor Rick Perry will be stopping by the Berreta facility in Accokeek tomorrow. Perry is trying to persuade the longtime Maryland gun manufacturer to move from hostile Maryland to friendly Texas. It would be a shame to lose Berreta, but it’s understandable why they would leave.
Of course, the stupidly biased Washington Post has to include a laughable irrelevancy to take a dig at Perry. John Wagner writes, “Perry, who has been on similar poaching missions to several other states, plans a stop at a Beretta USA facility in Accokeek, just south of Washington, where a gunman went on a rampage at the Navy Yard on Monday, an aide confirmed Tuesday.”
The deranged killer who terrorized the people at the Navy Yard had nothing to do with Governor Perry or Maryland’s absurd anti-gun laws. There’s no reason to include that information in this story other than to try and link the two. The irony is that the killer was stopped by a powerful gun. Had there been more people at the Navy Yard with Berreta pistols, he probably would have been stopped sooner. But that fact is lost on the statists at the Washington Post.
