Magpul threatens to leave Colorado over gun bill. I think I need another 10 pack of P mags.

  1. Who Says:

    Weapon-blog is reporting the bill has passed.

  2. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    Think you’ll get them anytime this year?

  3. Robert Says:

    Come to Texas.

  4. Ted N Says:

    The progressives obviously don’t give a shit.

  5. Nevyan Says:

    Come to Tennessee or Georgia…

  6. Publicola Says:

    The mag cap limit bill (along with 3 other anti-gun owner bills) passed a 2nd reading in the House. It still has to have a 3rd reading & a recorded vote, which will happen on Monday. Then it leaves the House & the process repeats in the Senate. It’s likely that it will become law but it’s not law yet.

  7. Cargosquid Says:

    I just sent a letter to my governor and state reps to start enticing these companies to Virginia.

  8. Robert Says:

    It’s not about the children or safety or violence, it’s a culture war. They don’t like “those” kind of people and are willing to bankrupt the state to drive them out.

  9. Sid Says:

    Robert nailed it.

    These people are so dumb it’s amazing they remember to breathe. Magpul tell them they won’t stay here because if they do it will effect their business anyway and they will be viewed as hypocritical to be giving money to a government that outlawed their products.

    And their solution was an amendment making it legal for them to make any size magazine for sale out of state. Somebody’s knocking but nobody’s home.

    Maybe Magpul will wait until after the next election to see what happens. But if it passes they would loose a lot of face if they stayed.

  11. Critter Says:

    Magpul is cordially invited to relocate to Lower Alabama. we have cookies.

  12. Matt P. Says:

    I don’t mean to start a fight ala 1911 v Glock, but the standard Texas cookie has a higher capacity and we have beer and brisket.

  13. Henry Says:

    And stop selling magazines to the cops or any state agency.

  14. Bubblehead Les Says:

    Even if Magpul leaves, it’ll take a few months to move, find a Factory, set up Shop, train the new Workforce, get their Raw Materials sent in, etc.

    So the practical effect is that Magpul, who I applaud for their Stand to Support the RKBA, will be out of the Loop for several months, which means the Magazine Shortage will continue that much longer.

    And several hundred employees who did absolutely nothing wrong will be looking for Jobs. Which means more Citizens at the mercy of the State for their Food and Shelter.

    Hmmm. Sounds like the Commies would love that.

  15. Rich Says:

    I hope Magpul gives Colorado residents first priority on mag sales until the ban is law. Fill all Colorado residences with 30 rd PMags!

  16. Publicola Says:

    In Colorado, a new law becomes effective on July 1rst, so Mag-Pul has plenty of time to move IF (IF I SAY!!!!1!!1shiftplusone!!1!) this thing gets to the governors desk. It’ll only take them a few weeks to move operations so mag availability won’t be affected for too long.

  17. Robert Says:

    They are welcome to come to North Carolina as well. We need the jobs.

  18. Matt P. Says:

    I think we can all agree that Rich lives in Colorado.

  19. TigerStripe Says:

    Magpul should move. Colt should move. Remington should move. Bushmaster should move. DPMS should move. Smith & Wesson should move. All of these companies are based and/or have manufacturing facilities in states that would love for them to go out of business.


  20. MJM Says:

    Dear Magpul:
    You are invited to move to Tennessee.

  21. Snowdog Says:

    We’ll happily take them in Missouri, yeah St Louis is a hole, but the rest of the state is pretty good.

  22. Kristophr Says:

    They are welcome to move a hundred miles up I-25 to Cheyenne.

  23. P.M. Says:

    I don’t even live in Wyoming and I’d still be glad to see Magpul move there (if not to my own state).

    BTW they should announce no more sales to CO government buyers.

  24. Billll Says:

    Bad Laws like this not only drive NPC businesses out, they discourage conservatives from coming here and encourage those who can to get out as well. End result is one party rule into the foreseeable future.

    Win-Win if you’re a Democrat.

  25. Bill Says:


  26. SPQR Says:

    I would not presume to dictate business practices to Magpul, but it would be hilarious if they dedicated production to Colorado residents for a period of time to the effective date of the bill.

  27. Cybrludite Says:

    Snowdog, Missouri is working on similar laws as well. That’d be an “Out of the frying pan, into the fire” situation.

  28. Joe Says:

    @Cybrludite, the bill introduced in Missouri has little to no chance of passing much less even making it to committee.

    It forces government dependence.

    See my post And they came for Texas.

    They will not stop until this country is destroyed.

  30. MAJike Says:

    Sooooo, how come you all didn’t stockpile ammunition and magazines over the preceeding months and years? You really couldn’t see that the Lib-Cong would eventually come to this point?

    If you fail to plan, you [lan to fail. Its your own fault that now you’re running around panic buying and forced into paying stupidly inflated prices for thing you should’ve been buying all along.


  31. Jeff from DC Says:

    The only thing I failed to stockpile was a mother’s love…and those yellow hostess cupcakes.

  32. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    I stocked up on everything but reloading parts, kinda missed out on that one, but otherwise I’m in the catbird seat.

  33. rickn8or Says:

    Jeff from DC: Soooo. You got… Twinkies??

  34. CMonster Says:

    Magpul is being vocal about it, too. Amazing that the Denver Post, which is liberal as all get out from what I read, let them place this ad:

    sorry, don’t get the paper so I can’t post a full res photos, got this one off a BB.

  35. Todd Says:

    Good Luck with that 10 pack of p-mags
