I called and emailed MagPul trying to get them to join the boycott. Unfortunately they appear to be too busy making PMags to answer phones or email. If anyone happens to know how to get ahold of them, I’d love to hear a commitment to stop sales to NY govt agencies.
Good for the 5! The NRA, SAF and other organizations need to be very vocal about fighting exemptions from Cuomo’s Law for Law Enforcement (both current and retired). I say this as a serving officer with 38 years experience (I’m also an NRA Life Member and HCP Instructor). NY (and other restrive states) Law Enforcement need to realize that we’re all in this together.
Don’t start casting lots for mag-pul yet – the mag cap limit bill only made it out of committee. Friday there’ll be debate on the house floor, then Monday they’ll likely vote on it There’s a chance – not a great one but a chance – that there’s enough pro gun dems to stop it. (Apropos of nothing i have noticed the scenery in Montana is simply lovely…)
Mag-pul likely won’t bust a move until it’s a done deal; here most laws don’t take effect until July 1rst, so they’ll have plenty of time to leave if it comes down to it, as will a lot of other folks.
Magpul is ALWAYS welcome in TN! You can work out of my basement until you get your new digs set up. Of course there may be a small equipment surcharge for renting the space ;). I’ll take two of everything. Whatever I don’t use I’ll use as Magpul equipment give-a-ways over at my little Blog.
Move to CO if you think it will help, but right now we’re a pretty solidly blue state. That could change in ’14, but that’s 2 years away.
The committee promised Magpul a special carve out so they wouldn’t leave, as long as they don’t let the natives get their mags. Most impressive display of butt-kissing I’ve ever seen. Last I looked, the carve out is still not there.
I’m sure Rick Perry is waiting for them to return his call.
Please watch as Adam Ballard, Product Manager for DPMS — home to 115 employees, 37 of us who are veterans —, testifies in front of the Minnesota Public Safety and Policy Committee against HF421; a bill designed to ban modern sporting rifles (so-called “assault weapons”).
This bill would close our doors, put a great number of hard-working Americans out of work and infringe upon the rights of millions of lawful gun owners in Minnesota.
Your voice and support is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your time and your business
