‘Loopy’ Colo. Gov. Signs Magazine-Restrictions Bill;
Magpul Makes Plans to Exit the State Ricky-Tick;
Hunters Immediately Begin Canceling Trips
(GunAuction.com) — Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed three firearm-related bills last week, including restrictions that would limit magazine capacity, require checks on private sales, and tack on background check fees. In response, Magpul is making plans to exit the state. Also, hunters across the country say they are boycotting Colorado because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.
Opponents argue that these bills will do nothing to lower crime, but instead infringe on Second Amendment rights. Some also worry that the wording in the high capacity magazine ban (HB 1224) will eventually make all lowered-capacity magazines illegal due to “readily convertible” parts.
Magazine and gun accessory manufacturer Magpul had previously announced that it will uproot from its Colorado location should the magazine ban be passed. On the eve of the signing, the company stood by its promise with a release on its facebook page that said, “[Should HB 1224 be signed] we will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing, with the rest to follow in phases.”
Magpul has not yet finalized all the details for its move and is now considering potential sites for a future company headquarters. From the company’s Facebook page:
“With the signing of the HB 1224, we want to reassure Colorado residents, now officially in occupied territory, that the ‘Boulder Airlift’ will continue until we can no longer legally ship to CO residents at the approach of the July 1 deadline, so long as demand continues.
“We are looking at additional ways to give Coloradans the opportunity to buy the magazines they need prior to the enactment date, as although we’ve been swamped with tens of thousands of orders, our shipping department limitations have only allowed us to get a few hundred thousand magazines out to CO residents…a small portion of our monthly production. We’ll continue to support the Airlift as long as demand exists, and up to the active date of the legislation, and we’ve allocated a little over a million magazines for the effort up to that point, give or take.
“Customers in the rest of the country should rest assured that the airlift only takes a small portion of our production, and magazines and other products are continuing to ship to the rest of the nation. Our transition to a new home will occur in a phased and orderly a manner to allow us to continue to serve our customers during the move, as well as to allow an orderly transition for affected employees. We are actively working on those plans.”
“There’s a united front of sportsmen that are tired of having their freedoms and liberties and fundamental rights taken away from them,” said northwest Colorado hunting guide Chris Jurney, vice president of the Colorado Outfitters Association. “That kind of unity among sportsmen is going to be big and unfortunately for those of us who live here, we’re going to suffer the consequences of this misguided legislation.”
