No matter how hard you debate and lobby, you will never pass a pro-gun law in this state, GOAL and other ma 2A groups are pretty much ineffective.

Id be more disapointed in Magpul going back on their promise to leave the state than anything. I cannot for the life of me figure out why you would stay when so many states would do next to anything to get your buisness?!?

I don't think they will stay. But moving a manufacturing/assembly facility will not happen overnight.

No I know that. I dont think anyone expects them to, but gears should be turning internally and a timeline established and announced to the public in a month or two.

Just my .02

Some other states have offered to pay for the move. They will go. They just have to pick the best deal. They'll probably get the new site mostly up and running before they pull the plug on CO though.

I know that. I dropped my membership when they chose to do nothing about ffls being refused sale of 'non-ma compliant' black powder guns.
1 ma compliance laws don't apply to ffls unless it is in regards to selling said guns.
2 black powder guns aren't even considered firearms and therefore there is no such thing as a non compliant one.

I do hope they go through with it. The symbolism would be powerful.

We need a new local 2A group in this state, one that actually fights for it.

I'm afraid there are some on this forum that will accuse them of "selling out" because they didn't get moved yesterday.

Most of magpuls products wouldn't be affected by a ban anyway. For them to say that you can't buy their products because of the state you reside in would be a huge marketing error, it also doesn't make much sense. I could see it if they sold firearms to leo in the state, but not unregulated accessories.
