Ammunition magazine manufacturer Magpul Industries said it plans to begin leaving Colorado “almost immediately,” and other firms may follow suit in the wake of a new law that limits ammunition magazine capacities.
“Our moving efforts are underway,” Magpul chief operating officer Doug Smith said Wednesday. “Within the next 30 days we will manufacture our first magazine outside the state of Colorado.”
One of three gun-control bills signed Wednesday by Gov. John Hickenlooper prohibits the sale of gun magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
Erie-based Magpul, with about 200 workers, is the largest Colorado company that potentially would be affected by the bill.
Magpul said earlier this week in a Facebook posting that it ” will start our transition out of state almost immediately.” The company also posted, “We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected.”
The firm’s departure could have a ripple effect on companies that supply parts and materials to Magpul.
“We’re basically going to follow Magpul and do our best to continue being a supplier for them,” said Lloyd Lawrence, owner of Denver-based Lawrence Tool & Molding. “It will probably be out of state.”
First Mexican journalists dropped like flies, either as victims of drug-cartel violence or out of fear, and stopped reporting crime in the region. U.S. journalists located in American border cities soon followed and have stopped reporting on drug-related violence.
To sum things up:
• The Obama administration is preventing states like Arizona from enforcing immigration laws and reducing attendant violent crime.
• It is also trying to prevent states like Arizona from enforcing voter ID laws to ensure only legal citizens are able to cast ballots.
• And now that millions of illegal aliens are here — including tens or hundreds of thousands of violent gang members — the White House is letting them loose on our streets and insisting we put them on a path to citizenship (while keeping the border wide open).
Is it okay to question the Democrats’ patriotism yet?
