    Not gonna happen. The gauntlet has been cast and now it becomes an integrity issue. If the laws are passed in the senate and the govonor signs off on it, Magpul has no other choice but to leave or shut their doors for good. If they move to a free state, many of their customers will see this as a sign of resolve and be far more willing to buy their products. If however they stay, in fact going back on their word, well, who wants to buy anything from a double-talking con man? Nope, they have no choice but to follow through on their promise of leaving should these bills become law or they will be shutting their doors for good inside of a year! Personally though, I have no doubt about their integrity and fully believe that they will move if these laws are passed.

    I'd rather stay here and drive the Liberals back to California.

    Kinda like moving from Auchwitz to Dachau, ain't it? Scenery may change but the level of suffering stays the same.:rolleyes:

    I think they should refuse to sell to LEAs that supported this crapola, but our sheriffs were squarely in our corner and fought these bills furiously right along side us. I'd rather they continue to sell to the sheriffs, and tell the police chiefs to pound sand.

    No, I wasn't serious, though the truth is that we need companies to move here. California is dieing.

    There is no growth here. The state government is continuing down the path of economic destruction. We're building a high speed rail from a desert to a garlic festival, wasting billions, knowing that the project will never actually be completed.

    Our demographics are rapidly becoming third world, with English being replaced by Spanish in large cities. Yes, we need companies like Magpull to move here, but it will just never make sense for them. We need help!

    You have had a few elections, yet nothing has changed.........

    The problem is those folks move out to NV, CO and other places, to escape what they turned their state into, then want to do it again in their new state - look at St. George, UT.

    One thing to beware - these folks VOTE (early and often ;)) and always get involved until they screw it up, then they want to move on

    I have always wondered why folks in these places allow them in there in the first place? Now I know with equal housing laws, discrimination against religion, sex, race, etc. are a big time no-go, and it should be. However, the last I knew, not renting a house to someone based on their political views was not covered under that law. "Hey, Alan Keyes, you want to rent a place here? No problem at all." :) "Hey, tofu-munching hippie with the Obama t-shirt on, how about you get back in your car, turn around and go back to wherever it is you came from. Get off my property!!!!":fire: "Hey, Senator Ted Cruz, welcome to my resurant! I'll be happy to take your order." :) "Hey, Micheal Moore, get your whale carcass out of my resurant right freakin' now and don't ever come back!!!":fire: I would think after a while, liberals would maybe get the hint that they are not welcomed in your community.

    Unfortunately, it's more like, "Hey, engineer-man who just moved to town to work for Big Company Corporation that employs a lot of highly skilled people who may have come from around the country (but do not necessarily share any political view), umm, hi? Nice Subaru you've got there.

    Mr. Engineer-man still doesn't have enough money to rent a house from me as long as he's a liberal!

    Uh....we're talking about Colorado. The Colorado that Bush carried both times, the Colorado that had a Republican governor from '99-'07, who won the largest majority in our history in 2002. We had Republican state senators for a very long time, 4 of our 7 house reps are currently GOP. The state house just went Democrat this year.

    I can point to very valid reasons that Hickenlooper got elected, as well as why Obama carried us this year. Ken Buck only lost the senate race by 1 point in 2010 because the Democrats ran an excellent smear campaign right at the end.

    I've said it before, people here just didn't feel that RKBA was threatened. I'll be shocked if things don't shift dramatically in 2014 & 2016. We've been blue several times in our history, including '92, but went back red after the '94 ban. The state's history in presidential elections has been 12 times Democrat, 22 times Republican and 1 time Independent.

    Times are changing, but Colorado has always been unique. Usually a right-of-center state, but it depends on the candidate and the issues at hand.

    I really doubt that. However, the would lose a lot of respect from a lot of people and some folks probably would refuse to buy from them at that point.

    St George UT and Washington County UT is predominantly conservative. Their elected state and local reps are conservatives. A better example, Park City UT.

    I agree that what you are saying happens. This is why a whole lot of people in UT, ID, MT, etc really don't like Californians moving in.

    And it really isn't very hard to figure out why that is the case now is it? Well I guess not hard for everyone save CA politicians and the folks electing them.
