    Saw this yesterday. It'd be awful if Magpul had to move, but it's good to see that they'd be able to if they had to.

    Magpul is welcome in FL any time they're ready. No state income tax for their employees, RKBA-friendly, great hunting/fishing, good weather, beaches…and the happiest place on Earth is right in the middle! I'd go work for them in a heartbeat.

    Magpul is welcome in Kansas! Just a short hop skip and jump for those employees and a much friendlier attitude!

    Bring MagPul to Tennessee!

    We respect the 2A, the cost of living is low, Memphis is the FEDEX distribution hub center (can't get any faster shipping than that) and new jobs are always welcome too. Maybe they could buy a building near our wonderful BARRETT headquarters.

    They would simply slip north into Wyoming; easy, close by, business friendly.

    Texas would be a good move for them; that way there would be no import fees when we secede from the US! :evil:

    Wonder about their leadership.

    What are they waiting for?

    I saw another post (course, we all know the Net is always true:D) that said Magpul leaders had contributed in no small part money to several Libtard politicians. IDK

    If they make the threat, "We will leave if you do X," there is incentive not to do X. If they simply up and move, then the politicians can do X because there is no reason not to at that point.

    By threatening but not acting yet, they can exert more influence and possibly help to save CO from the same fate as NY and as what we are facing here in CT.

    Well right... that's all we have right now here in Colorado. Hopefully that money was well spent on a "no" vote despite their "libtard" status.

    Mis-posted this earlier...

    I know I'm not completely in lockstep with some of the thinking here and I did not try to make this a talking-points laundry-list or a snarky rhetorical excercise, but I just sent the following to the committee members and cc'd the Governor:

    Dear Colorado State Representatives,

    I am a law abiding resident of Colorado, property owner and small business owner. I live and work in -redacted-. I am not a hunter, however I do participate in competitive and recreational shooting on a regular basis. I am also a responsible CCW permit holder and possess firearms for home and self defense.

    One of the reasons that I chose to make my home and living here in Colorado is because it has traditionally had a strong heritage of firearm and other personal freedoms (Even though I am not a "user" (MMJ or otherwise), I am very proud of the fact that Colorado is one of two states beginning the end of Marijuana Prohibition in this country and hopefully bringing some sanity to the complete and total failure that is the "War on Drugs"). I am very concerned about these three bills that you will be reviewing in the Judiciary Committee over the coming days, HB 1229, HB 1228 and HB 1224.

    Regarding HB 1229 - The background check system does not need to be further burdened by requiring full FFL transfers between private parties. All this does is penalize law-abiding citizens. Criminals will still be able to acquire firearms through straw-buyers and other illegal channels without a background check. If anything the background check system needs to be improved and made more efficient by decoupling the background check component from the actual firearm transaction. This would reduce the cost of doing business for FFL-holders and give private party sellers the ability to verify that a private party buyer may legally own the firearm he or she intends to purchase. Today, my CCW Permit serves this purpose for my private-party transactions. I propose that a buyer should be able to request a document showing a valid NICS background check, valid for some number of months or years, that could then be shown to and filed by an FFL holder or private party seller for their own protection. This document would also include a hashed code that could be reconciled to a valid Driver's License or CCW Permit and verified by the seller on-line or by telephone to guarantee its authenticity and continued validity. A simple and elegant solution that would improve the system rather than cause it to deteriorate further.

    Regarding HB 1228 - I actually don't have a problem with the firearms industry financially supporting the infrastructure needed for safe and legal transactions. Certainly the current 7-14 day backlog is untenable on a variety of levels. However I do have a problem with paying for something to be done in Colorado that I have already paid for with my tax dollars at the Federal level through the Federal NICS Check. This is just a pointless waste of time and money at the state level that should have been done away with long ago.

    Regarding HB 1224 - Banning and criminalizing the possession of magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds by law-abiding citizens makes no practical sense whatsoever. Magazine capacity limitations have not stopped or even slowed down any of these psychotic mass shooters. The VA Tech shooter had no problem carrying around a backpack full of "standard capacity" magazines and managed to kill 32 people through multiple magazine changes. Even with the significant amount of planning he put into his murder-spree, he did not bother purchasing readily available magazines for his handguns w/ 2-3x more capacity than the ones he used. Other mass shootings have shown that the shooters are more than capable of carrying multiple weapons to augment their firepower, specific examples include the "Aurora Shooter" who carried and used a shotgun in addition to his semi-automatic rifle, the "Sandy Hook Shooter" who carried two handguns in addition to his semi-automatic rifle and the "Columbine Shooters" who carried multiple firearms AND detonated homemade bombs. A statewide magazine ban would not be any more effective than the current ban has been in Denver and Aurora, but it would serve to criminalize law-abiding citizens such as myself and drive businesses and jobs from the state (I believe that you'll be hearing from Magpul in the coming days, a company that would have to relocate their 200+ jobs to a more favorable state immediately if HB 1224 were to pass).

    Thank you for your time and I hope that you chose to do the rational thing for Colorado rather than the emotional one.


    US Citizen, Colorado Resident and Taxpayer,

    MagPul is welcome here in Idaho. We're not overrun with a bunch of far left whacked out emotional, stupid politicians the way Colorado has become.

    Hey, we'd love to keep Magpul here in our great state! We just have to get some of these fools in the state legislature to stop acting so stupid.

    Then VOTE out the stupid ones and VOTE IN people that will stick to the constitution! We need to look closely at our state congress critters here in Tennessee as well.
