The Beretta Group of companies, which includes Beretta USA, Benelli USA, and Burris has pledged to give the NRA $1 million over the next five years. This gift will benefit the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action and their Civil Rights Defense Fund’s litigation activities to further expand the scope of Second Amendment protections. This is especially important in the wake of the recent US Supreme Court ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller. Beretta USA is part of the Beretta Holding Group, which is controlled by the Beretta family. The family has been in the gun business for 15 generations and dates back to 1526. They also own, among the manufacturers mentioned previously, Franchi, Uberti, Sako and Tikka. The last two are in Finland. They must be doing something right.
