Speaking of anti-gun legislation…

Speaking of it, it appears that Colorado, because of the state’s anti-Constitution politicians, is about to lose an up-and-coming hundred million dollar company, along with the tax revenues from some 600 jobs.

In February, firearms company Magpul informed members of the Colorado state legislature that they would leave the state if the anti-gun laws being considered were passed and became law.
Magpul is a relatively new company founded in 1999.

Today they employ 600 people and generate close to $100 million in sales. Their primary business is the manufacture of 30 round clips and other accessories for assault and assault-style weapons, most of which is purchased by the US military.

Doug Smith, COO of Magpul, “If we’re able to stay in Colorado and manufacture a product, but law-abiding citizens of the state were unable to purchase the product, customers around the state and the nation would boycott us for remaining here. Staying here would hurt our business.”

Luckily, however, not all states are run by these anti-Constitution marxists.

Once word got out that they were looking to relocate out of the state, they began to receive offers from states like Texas and South Carolina to bring their business to these more gun friendly states. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) sent Smith a letter telling him that South Carolina believes in the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms.

The next state Magpul moves to will only gain what the leftist governor of Colorado is throwing away.
