    Up to 9-pages of Magpul talk at arfcom when it was revealed that Magpul will continue to sell to BAN STATE .gov's.

    Maybe they needed to raise cash for moving vans to leave CO?

    Or buy CO properties to build grow-houses for the weed, man...

    Way to support the 2A there Magpul...

    In a related note, Gwovenor Cwoumo had the NY law adjusted to exempt Hollyweird productions inside NY from the AWB and mag bans. Can't irritate the money men, can they?

    Before we trash Magpul, let's wait for the dust to settle and we what final positions are.

    What all the gun manufacturers need to do is say that they will not sell anything to the government that they can't sell to civilians, the awb would stopped in no time and the NFA would be repealed immediately

    Channel 7 news got it wrong. As usual.

    The bill I read will make it illegal to sell or transfer magazines over 15 rounds.

    Agreed. I see no real support here. I've sent the local groups proof of abuse of our misguided gun laws and they do nothing, but they will jump all over the credit for 'effectual' rallies. It's bs.

    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.
