MAGPUL Magazines Leave Colorado

Magpul posted on their Facebook page that they are now making their magazines outside of Colorado for the first time. I am glad that Magpul followed through on their promise to leave Colorado in the face of reactionary restrictions on law-abiding citizens. I hope the loss of this great company will be a wake-up call to the anti-gun legislators in the Colorado State legislature. It will probably not.

Keep in mind that Magpul is a company that has solidly supported the military, law enforcement, and American firearms owners from its inception. It continued to support Coloradans with the “Boulder Airlift.” A program to get 30-round magazines into the hands of Colorado residents prior to the magazine capacity restrictions going into effect. Now they are voting with their feet and wallet in order to continue supporting the Second Amendment. This is an American Company that makes great kit for good people. But not in Colorado anymore.

There are a lot of angry Colorado residents outside of the Denver area. Many are baffled as to how these restrictions were even entertained, much less passed, in a state with the individualism and libertarianism that Colorado used to embody. Now jobs and money are leaving the state. The 2014 elections here are going to be interesting.
