Dear Delegate Kump,
Thank you very much for your kind letter of February 27, 2013.
We appreciate your expression of interest in having the Beretta companies in the U.S. move to your region; however, we are not entertaining invitations of that type at this time but instead are focused on the legislative debate pending in Maryland relating to potential firearm and firearm magazine bans. Only after that debate is resolved and the impact of pending legislation on our companies is known will we evaluate what further steps, if any, our companies need to take in that regard. Certainly if our business interests require that we expand or relocate part of our operations elsewhere we will consider West Virginia in that regard.
BERETTA U.S.A. CORP.
