Magpul Industries announced Thursday that it was relocating from Colorado to Wyoming and Texas, making good on its threat to pull jobs and revenue from Colorado in response to new gun control laws.
One of those laws bans ammunition magazines that can hold more than 15 rounds. Magpul manufactures standard 30-round magazines and, during debate over the bill last spring, said it would pull up roots if it passed. The law went into effect in July.
In a press release, the company announced it will move its manufacturing, distribution and shipping centers to Cheyenne, Wyo., and open a new corporate headquarters at one of three locations still under consideration in North Texas.
I’m the proud owner of one of Magpul’s high-capacity magazines, and Governor Hickenlooper may kindly kiss my ass.
