CHARLESTON - Senator Joe Manchin is speaking out after a gun manufacturer cited his stance on gun control as a key deterrent for relocating to West Virginia. Manchin says he encouraged Beretta to move to the Mountain State from Maryland, citing West Virginia's workforce and commitment to the Second Amendment. The Senator says the company has twisted his words, and is deceiving the people of this state in an attempt to gain political ground. Manchin is the owner of two Beretta shotguns, and he says he is disappointed in the direction their management has chosen to take.
