Magpul a Colorado Company Gives Away Free Ammo magazines Before Ban goes into effect

magpul

With just days to go before Colorado’s strict new gun control law is set to  take effect, gun accessories manufacturer Magpul says it plans to distribute  1,500 30-round magazines to gun owners for free.

The company, which has vowed to leave the state over the law, will take  part in what organizers are calling a “Farewell to Arms Festival,” on Saturday  in Glendale, KDVR.com reports.

Magpul plans to give away magazines to the first 1,500 attendees and  participants will also be able to buy up to three magazines for $10 each,  according to the report.

Glendale Deputy City Manager Chuck Line told the station the event will be  the “last opportunity” for residents to obtain standard capacity magazines for  the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

In March, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed bills that would require background  checks for private and online gun sales and ban ammunition magazines that hold  more than 15 rounds.

The magazines distributed at the event will be “grandfathered” in under the  new law, event organizer Kelly Mahrer told KDVR.com.

Magpul company said in April that PMAG magazines, which can hold 10 to 30  rounds, were being made outside of Colorado for the first time and that sights  were also being made elsewhere.

Officials and gun owners in various states, including Wyoming and Alaska,  have tried to lure Magpul. The Erie-based company employs more than 200 people  and generates about $85 million in annual taxable revenues.

In a posting on its Facebook page Wednesday, the company said it is in final  negotiations for “the biggest portion” of its move out of state and hopes to  make announce a new location before the end of July.

    Magpul should give those clips magazines to the troops in Afghanistan they could really use them and it would give the company great public relations.

      I say make sure everyone in Colorado is well armed. They might need them in the future if they keep taking their rights away. The libs from Calif ruined their state so now they move to Colorado to do the same here. Time for them to go back home.

      The troops already have the best magazines money can buy. They are issued w/ their weapons, and they can carry all they want. We’ll probably leave millions of them when we ever leave

    We need MORE companies and individuals to stand up for their constitutional rights! If it isn’t the big bad federal BULLY, it’s states such as this who believe “they” have the right to tell law-abiding citizens what they have been doing lawfully and responsibly for generations is no longer allowed. We moved from CO in the late 90s and cannot believe how far down the Democrat politicians have taken it since then.

    Our government has bullied people and businesses for so long with no pushback from We the People…what with Nanny Mayor saying you can’t smoke in your own home…or cook with butter in a restaurant…or buy a large soft drink….and now the latest being a magician must provide a disaster plan for his rabbit to the federal government?????

    More and more businesses are letting their states know they can no longer dictate unreasonable demands without suffering the consequences. Connecticut will soon hear the same message as Colorado. And now Hobby Lobby, having stood strong for their religious beliefs, appears to have a chance to be exempted from the horrors of providing abortion coverage for their employees. May these few encourage many more to stand up to a government whose voracious appetite is killing our country.

    Let’s keep those congressional switchboards lit up so those elected by WE THE PEOPLE hear our voices!

    Colorado Democrat Senate Majority Leader John Morse quotes:

    “The reality is, these folks don’t have a Second Amendment right to buy these guns…. I’m granting them the right…”

    “…only a cleaning of our whole society can remove this sickness [gun ownership] from our souls. Cleansing a sickness from our souls doesn’t come easily. It’s gruesome.”

    While speaking to other CO Dem senators: “Don’t read any more of these [constituents’ emails] than you absolutely have to.”

    Colorado Dem senator Evie Hudak to testifying rape survivor: “Statistics are not on
    your side.”

    Oh yes they are, Hudak: “Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns [...] have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies.”

    Good for magpul They deserve a better state to do business in then one full of idiot liberal socialist fools that believe a gun or magazine kill people. People kill people and idiots like the leaders in Colorado are fools. Laws like they are trying to force on folks will back fire and put them out of office. The gun free zones also kill people and invite killers to attack people who are unarmed results dead people who left there guns in the car or at home who could have safed life’s. Well the fools that believe in gun free zones should have to answer for the choices to disarm people and bottom line kill them. I would sue the pants of them so they would never post gun free zones ever again. I my self would rather be judge by 12 then carry by 6.
