    A statement was released by MAGPUL saying if the new gun restrictions being introduced in Colorado pass they will be packing up and leaving. That will take over 85 Million in revenue and 600 jobs out of Colorado. WAY TO GO MAGPUL FOR STANDING UP! My great state of Utah would welcome you with open arms!!

    About time the industry starts hitting them where it hurts.

    Come down South...

    They'll always be welcome here in the great (firmly red) state of North Carolina... We have the facilities, infrastructure and workforce to support them.

    PS- the BEST accessories I put on my resent AR build were from Magpul and FAB Defense !!

    Editorial in the Denver Post basically sez a ban "is the right thing to do" and Magpul shouldn't let the door hit them on the way out.

    Good!!!

    Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah would be happy to have them.

    Magpul goes to the top of my list.

    It's great to see the industry standing behind law abiding citizens and our rights..

    They only way to preserve these rights is for all of us to stand together.

    No compromise.

    Ah, yes- the Denver Fence Post. I dropped my subscription when I no longer needed to line the bottom of the bird's cage. :cool:

    Good for Magpul! I wish more firearms related companies would follow suit. There should be none in California or NY, to name a couple states. They should move to states the support second amendment rights.

    I'm pretty flush with Magpul's AR products...my AR is practically an ad for the company. If they move, though, I'll have to figure out more to buy from them--especially should they move to Texas. Right now Texas Governor Rick Perry is in California promoting Texas for lower taxes to businesses being strangled by CA taxes. He needs to go next to New York, Illinois and Connecticut to let gun mfrs know they're welcome in Texas. We've got a few, including the high quality 1911 mfr STI, but it would be something to get Freedom Group, Kimber, Springfield Armory, Hi-Point, and Colt to move their manufacturing to a place where they're not hated by the liberals in government. And Texas is a right to work state, so as long as they avoid the Beaumont-Port Arthur area, plus probably Houston, they'll find plenty of non union labor.

    Kentucky would welcome any gun manufacturer or firearm accessories manufacturer to the Bluegrass State. Come on over Magpul.

    Jim, I've watched from Wyoming and just about cry when I see what has happened to our neighbor, Colorado.

    I just wish that all the Colorado folks that have fled would move back and take Colorado back from the kalifornicators.:(:(:(

    Whats the latest development on this story?
    they passed the law, did Mgpul release any statement that they will now move?
    (they added a last minute proviso to the law that manufacturers "may" make bigger mags for "export" to other states)
