    Beretta Gave Money to Mike Miller's Campaign

    Who's Mike Miller you ask?

    Democrat state Senator and president of the Senate from Prince Georges County, MD.

    Big supporter and huge reason why SB281 was passed last year.

    I know that a lot of big companies play both sides of the fence, but why on God's green earth would Beretta give this well known anti a plug nickel?

    Makes it more interesting in that Beretta was publicly proclaiming that they would leave the state if SB281 passed. Miller was probably laughing his butt off reading that in the paper, knowing that they were partially funding his campaign....

    Could... Could it be that a politician promised one thing and then did another?

    Its pretty simple; Find out what Beretta got for their money, and you have your answer as to why they gave that thing money.

    Not good but to be fair....this is 2012 cycle data. What will be more interesting is if we see any donation from them in 2013. No one was talking about this nonsense until the very end of 2012, so I imagine the money was already donated and gone before SB281's push ever began or was on the horizon at all.

    You're giving them too much credit. Mike Miller's views on the 2A have been very well known for many years....

    I don't mean to give them MUCH credit. Just pointing out that it's only, say, 80-90% as bad as we might think, as opposed to being the full-on disgrace that a 2013 donation would be.

    Surely you jest. We all know what upstanding people politicians are. Never...NEVER...NEVER, would they intentionally deceive people!

    Well what they got for there money was most likely a cheese sandwich and bus fare out of town, that's my guess.
