A Governor, a Governor-elect, and Beretta

South Carolina's Governor, Nikki Haley, made a litte firearm related news over Christmas. News Channel 3 in Hampton picked up this story from CNN on one of Governor Haley's Christmas presents:
“Our family had a wonderful Christmas together! I must have been good. Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm,” Haley said in an Instagram post that included a photo of the weapon.
Virginia Governor-elect Terry McAuliffe on the other hand recently made different headlines related to Beretta.  Emily Miller reported this past Monday that Beretta has crossed Virginia off it's short list for re-location:
“The anti-gun ads that McAuliffe ran in northern Virginia were particularly offensive,” Jeff Reh, general counsel of Beretta USA, told me in an interview. “And the fact that he could gain a voting advantage by doing so caused us additional concern.”
McAuliffe claimed his experience as a business man would make him the best person to continue Governor Bob McDonnell's job creation record but it seems he has already had a negative impact even before taking office.
