Colorado passes universal background check bill, Magpul prepares to pull up stakes

Vice President Biden’s office tweeted its congratulations to the Colorado legislature (but not its citizens, natch) for its passage of universal background check legislation, which Gov. John Hickenlooper is expected to sign soon.

The bill passed the Colorado House 36-27 and the Senate 19-14, despite days of protests and testimony from Second Amendment supporters.

Rep. Beth McCann, the bill’s House co-sponsor, said in floor debate that there’s no guarantee the law will keep criminals from obtaining firearms: “Are we going to stop all criminals? I don’t know, but are we going to put a barrier there to make it more difficult? Yes.” This and other bills which are expected to be signed into law, though, are assured to make business more difficult for gun manufacturers and dealers.

Firearms manufacturer Magpul, which had promised to leave the state if a ban on magazines with a capacity larger than 15 rounds were signed into law, posted an update to its Facebook page today promising to make “standard capacity” magazines available to citizens through its “Boulder Airlift” campaign as long as the law allows.

During this period of high demand, and with the possibility of pending state legislation, we at Magpul are taking steps to ensure that responsible Colorado residents who want to own standard capacity magazines have the opportunity to do so.  To meet this need, we have set up a process for CO residents to purchase limited quantities of magazines from our website.

In a tweet today, Gov. Hickenlooper acknowledged the intense public interest the gun grab effort has generated.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

Nationwide gun-grabbing efforts have led to a run on firearms, accessories and ammunition, and now citizens in gun- and business-friendly states are hoping to snap up a firearms manufacturer in the deal.

  • SpinMeNot

    well, another state I will never visit again.

    • Lime Lite

      No passing of Jessica’s law, but concentrating on gun bans and weed! THIS is what the state is becoming – a liberal paradise, where perverts can rape kids with impunity; where losers can get stoned and where criminals can shoot and kill, but law abiding citizens are disarmed. THIS is what libs bring with them. They are truly sick people.

      • Rulz

        Thanks to Soros.

        • Vennoye

          And Bloomberg, apparently. Colorado R representative said Bloomberg had spent lots of money and promises of more money next election to the Dems to pass the gun control bills.
          Guess leftys don’t even need to move to the state to infect it.

          • trixiewoobeans

            White liberal millionaires in politics…they should be forced to go live in the freedom-less hellholes they’re creating. Nope! They wouldn’t tolerate it for one second, that’s just for us little people!

            Millionaire? How dare you insult Mayor Bloomberg he is a Billionaire.

        • Bluwater

          This is what happens when the Californians who screwed up their state move to another once because they can’t stand what they created… and then proceed to do the same thing to their new state. Roaches should take lessons. The next thing that happens is the nouveau Coloradoans will over-promise state workers, expand the government to employ themselves, declare it a financial catastrophe that is all the fault of Conservatives because they wouldn’t raise everyone’s taxes.

    This is what you get folks when liberals win elections. “Feel good” legislation that punishes law abiding citizenry for the actions of criminals.

    That sound you’re now hearing isn’t criminals rushing to leave Colorado due to this ignorant legislation….it’s Magpul. Congrats idiot libs. Just when you think you’ve found all the ways possible to kill jobs, you’ve managed to come up with a two-fer.

    • Dawn

      Yeah, because someone who owned a gun legally NEVER murdered anyone in cold blood before. (sarcasm)

      • Jack Deth

        22 whole comments!

        Wow! You really are ignorant.

        The people who overwhelmingly use handguns to commit crimes are criminals who don’t obey the law and would never willingly put their personal information into a database. And mental patients whose records are sealed and thanks to liberals and Democrats are nearly impossible to be institutionalized.

        All these liberal “common sense” measures, bills and laws do is criminalize honest citizens through registration. Which is only one tragedy away from confiscation.

        Actually, most murders happen from domestic violence or through drugs.

        And if someone really wanted to kill, trust me, an anti-gun law wouldn’t stop it.

        Studies confirm that over and over.

      • Angie

        Psst — murder is already illegal, separately & independently from any & all gun laws.

        • DreadPirateStarbucks

            I doubt it you can explain it to them all day long but you cant make them understand it.

      • Patrick Carroll

        Quick question: How many murders are committed each year by those who have guns illegally?

        And how will banning law-abiding citizens from owning weapons keep them safe from those who have guns illegally?

        Finally, how many crimes committed using guns are stopped by unarmed people?

        Remember: When seconds count, the police are minutes away.

        • Bluwater

          Your best chance of getting a cop to show up quickly to a robbery in progress is to shoot the perpetrator, for which they will take your gun and arrest you.

      • journogal

        Gun laws aren’t going to stop criminals or the mentally ill from killing. What this does is punish law-abiding citizens, which I assume you are for.

      • J Galt

        More people were killed last year by Hammers than rifles. Let’s ban assault hammers.

        • Bluwater

          Under this ban, it is now illegal for a father to take his son hunting or to the range and let him use one of dad’s guns. How many times this has resulted in a death? Never. You can’t rent one in a shooting range either to see how you like it before you buy it either. How many people have been killed that way? None! The intent of this law has nothing to do with safety. It’s about gun control. This won’t solve a thing, so they will once again push for “sensible gun legislation” that further erodes rights. And it will continue until all guns are illegal, and that still won’t solve the problem.

          • Steve Harris

            these bills have nothing to do about gun control, and everything to do about People control. they cant control you if you are properly armed.

      • Jason Lard

        these laws are going to create more crime just like the 18th amendment . but you have your head sooo far up a partys ass that you can not see hear or smell facts. if your party wanted to reduce crime they would not have released criminal illegals back on to our streets as a scare tactic over the sequester.

      • Lynny

        Dawn, I live 20 minutes from the closes town, I have 2 young children, what do you think will happen if there was a home invastion here. How fast do you think, if I even had the chance to call 911, would the police be here. Remember 20 minutes. I think my bullet will go a little faster than a car, don’t you. The second amendment says I have the right to have a gun on my person and to use deadly force if I am being treatened with bodily harm and to protect my own property. Are you willing to give up everything you worked hard for to someone who just thinks you owe it to them. Think about it. I will tell you this much… My home is protected by the good Lord and my gun, what are you protected by?

      • Rich Salyers

        Never go full retard Dawn

      • GaylePutt

        You know, shit happens. You can’t protect everybody from everything. But the honest, law-abiding citizens should not have to relinquish their rights for this notion that life should be so rosy for everyone. It just does NOT work that way,

    • GaryTheBrave

      I’m just abt ready to join Magpul. When I moved her 25 yrs ago it was so conservative. I was thinking of trying to turn things around in ’14 but it ain’t gonna happen.

      The state GOP reelected the same chairman that cost us the governorship in ’10 and the entire legislature last year.

      I also blame the NRA. They didn’t get the word out about these bills until just 3 days before the House vote.

      I’m thinking of moving to Pecos, TX, or Deming, NM.

      • Rulz

        I’d go to Texas for now, although the election of Gov. Martinez in NM is encouraging.

      • DreadPirateStarbucks

        Gary, all the people who would’ve called or marched on the state capital did, NRA notwithstanding. It’s just that the legislature here doesn’t give a crap about the people it represents. :-( I’m so sad. It’s like a juggernaut of insanity. I mean you had Dems mocking rape victims, it made national news, and yet they couldn’t summon the shame to stop themselves. The fix was in.

      • patriot1742

        NM is no better – they are going down hill fast.

      • Bluwater

        You could have had the NRA buy the television stations and it wouldn’t have mattered. The legislators are in this for ideological reasons, not to protect the rights of citizens. Next on the state docket will be an increase in state giveaways to attract a large number of indigents who will sell their vote for government handouts and ensure a continuation of the liberal agenda.

      • sdre

        suggest Pecos…too many welfare illegals in Deming

        • GaryTheBrave

          Yes, Pecos seems like a quiet place that has a “Live and let live” attitude.

          I’m looking for someplace that has never had a special report from The Weather Channel.

      • MarcB1969

        I left the Colorado Front Range for good in 2000 because it had become infested with Californians who were already inflicting damage to the cultural landscape, not to mention the horrible architectural disasters built to house them and sell to them. I knew a leftward political tide was a coming.

        Colorado was a more libertarian and blue collar state before the invasion of coastal yuppies in the 1990’s, more of the traditional America I knew and loved. Leaving that states was one of the best decisions I ever made.

    • Ronin

    • trixiewoobeans

      Stoned out is zoned out. Washington is going the same way as Colorado. Let them have their stuff, and they’ll be too stoned to notice or care what we’re doing.

  • Dawn

    “assured to make business more difficult for gun manufacturers and dealers.” Because that’s what really matters to Republicans, whether the people who make money off weapons are taken care of, not if any lives are saved because someone with a record wasn’t able to buy a gun due to a background check.

    • Maxx

      This law was much more than simply background checks you imbecile. Did you even READ it?

      “The bill prohibits the sale, transfer, or possession of an

      ammunition feeding device that is capable of accepting, or that can be

      readily converted to accept, more than 10 rounds of ammunition or more

      than 5 shotgun shells (large-capacity magazine).”

      In addition, “A person who manufactures a large-capacity magazine in Colorado

      in violation of the new provision commits a class 2 misdemeanor.”

      Magpul’s presence in the state results in approximately 1,000 jobs. They now will be leaving. Let me guess….you think criminals and mental defects are now suddenly going to start following the law because you nitwits piled on a new one atop all the others they ignore?

      “oooooh…..ELEVEN rounds in that black scary gun….eeegads! That’s horrible.” Ten? No problem.

      Tell me…what makes bullets 11-15 so scary to you folks?

      • Matthew Koch

        I honestly think Maxx that you could write a bill that will legalize rape, call it the “Rape Prevention Act,” and it would still get passed by the legislature, become law , and get supported by a sizeable majority of the U.S. population.

        • Rulz

          Most Americans would probably be in favor of abortion for rape victims, so the idea they would support legal rape is ridiculous.

          Just look at Richard Mourdock or Todd Akin.

          Of course, what they said pales in comparison to what I heard from Biden, CO and NY.

          • Matthew Koch

            You misunderstood my point. My point is that people make judgements based on short segments or what they hear from others.

            People hear the title Violence Against Women Act or they hear that it’s going to protect women from violence and they automatically support it.

            They don’t realize that it defends anti domestic violence programs. So it doesn’t help anyone it in fact hurts women.

            That’s what I was saying you dunce. Not that people would support a law that allows something horrible if they know what’s in it. But that people will be fooled into supporting something that hurts them by what liars tell them and what fits in the headlines they see.

          • Matthew Koch

            One example woul be the “Background Check Law,” as many of its proponents call it. People see that in a headline and they hear that it’s supposed to keep criminals from getting guns and they say to themselves, “Oh wow! There will be criminals with weapons if this passes!”

            They aren’t even aware of the troubling parts of this soon to br law that will make them less safe, and not more safe as the law is “supposed to.”

          • Matthew Koch

            Sorry I forgot to add out at the end of with. My bad.

    • NRPax

      Just because stupid comes in pints doesn’t mean you should order it. This isn’t going to stop any criminal from committing crimes. People already go through background checks at gun dealers when they buy a weapon there. But please; don’t let reality interfere with your utopian worldview.

    • Donna Jean Rettmann

      If you think someone intent on doing harm to others is going to let a few laws stop him, you are really a liberal twit! The only ones these laws hurt are law abiding citizens. If they can’t pass a background check, do you really think that is going to stop him? God, I can’t stand liberal idiots!

      • Rulz

        They don’t care. All they care about is feeling good and appeasing fake straight able-bodied male guilt and whining minorities over garbage that happened 3 centuries or more ago.

        As one conservative pointed out, and they think we’re stuck in the past.

        Leave it to proponents of big government to pull up every atrocity since the dawn of time to grow the state.

    • Scott

    • mike_in_kosovo

      because someone with a record wasn’t able to buy a gun due to a background check.

      Background checks are *already* being done, you microcephalic twit. Maybe you should get Holder to prosecute those cases instead of running guns to Mexican cartels.

    • yacope

      you can’t be this dense? Can you? Criminals DO NOT buy guns at your local gun store. They buy it at the street corner, steal it or even borrow it from some unsuspecting dunce. Criminals will not try to pass a background check that will flag them and they will not go through the trouble and expense of applying for a license to carry either. These are facts not emotionally driven factoids pulled out of someones nether regions.

    • IceColdTroll

      Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only
      those who are neither inclined, nor determined to commit crimes. Such
      laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants.
      They serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides from an unarmed
      man, may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

A cop pulled up behind him because his car was similar to one used in a crime. The vet happened to have a firearm in the trunk and when the officer ordered him to open it the officer saw the gun and arrested him.

      • Bluwater

        The vet should have refused without a warrant. Simply put, we honest legal citizens who know we should have no reason to fear our government are now put in a position of refusing reasonable cooperation with law enforcement officers. The only way you can rule over honest men is to make criminals out of them.

Momma always said California is the “Land of fruits and nuts” but now I think those “Rocky Mountain Oysters” are catching up with them folks in Colorado. I lived there for 12 years, and thought it was a beautiful place. My wife was actually there for 28 years, she was back last year for a visit when that Theater Shooting happened in Aurora. That’s where we used to live for goodness sakes! I moved there just a month before Columbine! Is there something about the shape of Colorado being like a lightning rod for evil or something?

    Honestly, just what is the problem with a background check to own a firearm. if you’re clean as a whistle what is the issue. Don’t give me that slippery slope crap. This is good. It should take four to six weeks to buy a firearm.

    • carla5731

      Yeah, what’s wrong with treating people like criminals before they commit a crime? We strip search people at airports, don’t we, even though that practice used to be reserved for people who were actually arrested. Who cares if the government wants to search all of your personal and financial information just so you can buy a gun. Their assumption is that if you’re not a criminal now the only reason you’re buying it is to kill somebody, and that whole right to privacy concept just isn’t in vogue anymore.

      Thanks windy132, you’re the reason stupid is winning.

    • William J. Miller

      And, while “Clean as a whistle Joe, or Jane” is waiting six weeks to get the firearm, “Gangbanger Jim, or Jill” broke into his, or her, house with a firearm they purchased in 5 minutes in the back alley.

      What part of “criminals, by their very definition, do not pay attention to laws” do you not understand? Or, are you just a Prog Parrot?

    • mdtljt

      Gun registration creates a confiscation map which can be used to disarm citizens leaving them vulnerable to attack from not only criminal riff raff but from the government that controls said registration list. If you don’t think that could happen here, study late 19th-early 20th century European history, early 20th century Russian/Soviet history, any history of a country now under despotic rule. Those people, those progressive intellectuals just KNEW their Dear Leader would never ever round up the UNARMED citizenry much less haul them off to gulags, re-education camps or concentration camps… “…but…but…we’re the SMART ones & we followed all your laws!!!” Yeahright…and how did that turn out each & every time?? The intellectuals were the first to be disappeared…sleep well knowing this gluttonous worm will turn…into a great & foul snake that will bite you firmly on your uneducated naive a$$

          I find it absolutely beyond belief that they expect everyone to voluntarily surrender their right to protect themselves & their loved ones because these weeniewusses don’t feel safe being around licensed gun owners, who would in all likelihood be the First Responders should they themselves be attacked.

      Exhibit C – Virginia Tech shooter passed TWO FBI background checks.
      Exhibi…. I don’t have time for this….

      • Grumpa Grumpus

        Well, that’s the point.

        Soon an AstroTurf-ed “ground swell” will start with the refrain “background checks don’t work — confiscation & prohibition is the only answer!”

        That song will be repeatedly sung in chorus by every Progressive Propaganda Injector: News, Television shows (from dramas to sit-coms), Gov. committees and gov. approved spokesmen, celebrities, et al.

        Every idiot-voter & his two acquaintances will pick-up the bumper sticker-ism and the laws will be passed… and SCOTUS will interpret it to find it Constitutional.

        It will use something like: ‘The Military and Police still have firearms, so there’s no infringement occurring…’, or a “Mental Health” exclusion, using the “yelling fire in a crowded theater” precedent — but Gov. sets the parameters and they’ll be nebulous enough that they’re able to basically be defined person-by-person, on the spot and/or if you’ve ever been even mildly annoyed, displeased, or unhappy you’re disqualified.

        So the process will roll along and the confiscations will proceed.

        If you don’t hop-to and offer-up your firearms, you’ll be considered dangerously antisocial and mentally unstable. In which case the Government (“for your own good, because they care about you…”) will gift you with time at a Rest Retreat… where you’ll get plenty of fresh air, be put on a state-approved diet of approx 600 Cal., and be given a lot of useful outdoor “recreation” sculpting pebbles in quantity, (to “raise your self esteem” ).

        • DreadPirateStarbucks

          The only people to defend our rights against are legislators and they don’t listen to reason.

          • Grumpa Grumpus

            Why has the number of these shootings increased as the laws have become more restrictive?

            When I was a young man, a 12yr old could walk into almost any hardware store and buy a firearm — pistol or long gun. For farmers who rarely got to town, Sears & Roebuck sold’em mail order.

            Perhaps, instead of scatter-shotting laws, hoping to stop the problem, we should stop and analyze why the laws don’t stop criminals?

            Well, the reason legislators don’t do that is b/c stopping the the mass-kills isn’t the point.

            And you are damn right we should be afraid Prez!Dingleberry’s coming for our guns. All his public utterances prior to his 1st presidential run supported confiscation.

            And, I’ll point out, historically, every group that has been disarmed — from the Germans to the Jews to the Italians to the Chinese to the Japanese (Meiji-era) to the peoples who made up the client states of the USSR to the Russians themselves — were told the same thing by people like you! “Oh, what? You think the [insert despot’s title/name here] is going to confiscate your swords/firearms/dangerous farm implements (Okinawa, early 1800)? Be serious! They only want it safer your everyone!” The wording changes, but the sentiment’s the same…

            I suggest, before you remount your moral high-horse, you read history — including the history of why the Founding Fathers wrote the Amendments and why they ordered them as they did (since the first bunch were as a group…).

            Then read the history of the gun-ownership debates over the years. We’ve [i.e., gun-owning citizens] compromised before, in good faith, and trying to be reasonable.

            The problem is that the Statists don’t compromise nor negotiate, nor even argue in Good Faith.

            There’s a parable about a camel, a camel rider, a sand storm and a tent…

            If there’s a better illustration of that parable, I’m unfamiliar with it.

  • windy132

    Actually the background check should be for criminal record and mental health matters. it is irrelevant how much money a person has in the bank, source of income etc. What matters is that they are mentally sound and crime free.

    • William J. Miller

      You advocate tying law-abiding people up for four to six weeks to purchase a gun. I had a background check recently. I was determined to be “mentally sound and crime free” in about ten minutes. Why should a law-abiding citizen, wanting a firearm for personal protection, be disarmed for four to six weeks?

      Also, once again, what part of “criminals, by their very definition, do not pay attention to laws” do you not understand?

      • windy132

        No, I don’t advocate that at all. What I would advocate is the application process, start to finish, includes a cooling period, background checks etc. The right to “bear arms” is not in question. Just who needs a gun in 15 minutes?

        • NRPax

          Where do you get the right to tell anyone how long they have to wait? And you might not be aware of this, but the checks you are talking about don’t take very long to begin with. That’s a feature, not a bug.

          • windy132

            Well first of all, don’t be so righteous, I not telling you anything, just a suggestion, a cooling off period is part of the solution. Brady was law, but was overturned. That was a good start. That depends on who is doing the checks. Local law enforcement, NCIC, FBI, What I suggest and advocate is the waiting time to have another safety feature in just who does own firearms, not banning them. chill out.

          • NRPax

            Righteous? You are the one saying “Who needs a gun in fifteen minutes?” It’s none of your business, quite frankly. Cars kill far more people than guns in this country, yet people like you don’t advocate waiting periods, limits on engines and forbidding people from buying more than one.

            So how is a “cooling off” period a solution? Are criminals just suddenly going to decide not to commit a crime if they have to wait a few days to pick up a gun?

            And before I forget to add: National Firearms Act of 1934, Gun Conrol Act of 1968, waiting periods, May Issue states, Assault Weapons Ban of the 90s, background checks on buyers. How many more compromises do we have to make until people like you are happy? Please give me a definite answer on that one.

          • IceColdTroll

            Se? They’re conjuring up this nebulous “need” again. Rather simply, lad, it’s none of your ffkng business what I “need” or “want” — aside from being let alone by professional busybodies.

          • NRPax

            Perhaps it’s because of the belief that cops are seconds away and they think people who carry want to live in the Old West?

      • windy132

        Well we should go back to the future when we used to recognize mental illness. i.e. until the politically correct crowd saw fit to turn people with mental problems loose on the streets. People with diagnosed mental history should not be allowed to own guns.

        • Grumpa Grumpus


          But if you look at the trends today, the PC crowd is crafting the same amorphous goalposts-moving definitions in the area of mental health they use for every other category of thing they desire to weaponize for use as a tool to eradicate opposition to their fairytale.

          An example now is the “opinion” in psychology that there’s nothing wrong w/pedophilia.

          It started the same way w/homosexuality, btw.

          If I were allowed to return to this life twenty years from now, I’m certain pedophilia will be at the same stage of acceptance as homosexuality is now.

          Well, I’ll agree with on the first part of your remarks at least. But I’m you’re also smart enough to understand that using “mental illness” as a cover for socio-political manipulation has a long and dishonorable history, particularly in the old USSR.

      Because the government is supposed to respect your privacy until you commit a crime–that’s when you break the social contract and surrender your rights. Your constant hectoring with “What do you have to hide” echoes the government’s backwards thought process. What’s the argument for the government assuming someone is a criminal without any evidence that they are?

      – Virginia Tech shooter passed TWO FBI background checks.

    • NRPax

      Actually, criminals tend to get their guns in different ways. They steal them from people’s homes (That’s illegal by the way), they purchase them from other criminals (That’s illegal too) or they have someone else buy them on their behalf (Look at that! Illegal!).

      As for that silly “if you have nothing to hide” argument overlooks something important. If I’ve done nothing wrong, then you have no reason to stop me from buying a weapon. And no, “buying a weapon” is not wrong nor suspicious. The background check works the way it’s supposed to and it doesn’t need to be expanded.

      So just in case you are actually reading and answering these: What set of laws, when spoken together, will physically prevent a criminal from getting a gun?

    • mike_in_kosovo

    VIDEO: Maketa urges angry crowd to mobilize against gun laws

    El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa told an angry crowd Thursday he would stand firm against Democrat-sponsored gun bills that will almost certainly become law July 1.

    Maketa, who received several standing ovations during a two-hour public meeting about gun legislation, said the proposed laws were hastily crafted and at least one would be unenforceable.

    “One of the reasons a vast, vast majority of sheriffs around this state are opposing these bills and all aspects of these bills is because they are concerned that this is a stepping stone to registration” of gun owners, he said.

    “We will not tolerate that kind of intrusion on our personal property rights,” he said, generating loud applause from the standing-room-only crowd of more than 300.

    when the government passes a law that bans things against the peoples wishes it only creates a black market. read some history, think about prohibition. all these politicians are creating is crime bosses like capone, or the cartels in mexico. it just does not work. but then obama and his machine comes from chicago illinois. headquarters for the capone gang. illinois politics is a real model of corruption. liberalism at its finest. chicago leads the nation in gun related murder and yet they have the most restrictive guns laws in the nation……the citizens are not allowed to protect themselves w/firearms. the chicago police will protect you all……… is that working out? they bring that on themselves by electing these bafoons to office and now, so have you.

  • precursor

    Stupid part about all this….you can go over state lines into Wyoming and buy all the ammo and guns you want. Colorado and state demoKKKrats just want to our lives in this state. Marry the same sex partner–stay stoned — stay UNINFORMED – and the state legislature is happy. I think 2014 the state demoKKKrats will pay. We also have TERM LIMITS in this state..which is a GODSEND.

    Leftwingwackos are jumping for joy that people will now be losing their jobs in droves! Utterly bloodthirsty.

    That’s not a bug, that’s a feature of leftwingwackoism.

  • RightThinking1

    Hmmm, just came to me. Since a mandated background search is apparently legal, and since those of questionable mental stability will not be allowed to obtain permits (and may in fact have any currently owned guns confiscated), I think a good starting point would be the voter list. Democrats being manifestly slightly insane, go collect their guns. I’m betting that the crime rate would plummet out of all proportion.

    • Bluwater

      You don’t even have to make the insanity case. Just that they get exactly what they voted for.

  • louisiana_mom

    We can have background checks for guns but not for voting? What is wrong with this picture??? You must show ID to purchase a gun but not to vote… The 2nd Amendment says “shall not be infringed” I don’t recall that statement being said of voting….

    • Bluwater

      The stupid and ignorant who say they can’t get state IDs to vote will manage to make it in to a government office to get their Obamacare. I say give them the state ID at that time, and then we can have national voter identification. We may as well get something from the bad deal.

  • iconoclast

    Need to put a fence around Colorado to keep the loons from infecting another state. It is like watching a gentrified version of the Walking Dead to see liberals drone on and on with their lies and never-ending attempts to establish tyranny.

    I would tell you people from Colorado that it sucks to be you but….I’m from California and our guns laws are much worse. So, It sucks to be me.

    you idiot politicians in colorado,do you really think you have done anything for the just got some nut to buy two 15 rd. mags instead of just made this company twice as much money and likely lost these employees the good paying job that they had.this is the dems. economics at work . congrats biden you idiot.

  • patriot1742

    Texas wants Magpul to come on home. Remember – the state of Texas joined the union as a Republic – we reserve the right to leave the union and become a Republic again – maybe it is time.

    • no_limit_neckbeard

      If that time comes, my friend, we the people of Oklahoma will be right behind you and probably petitioning our Texan neighbors for statehood.

      • patriot1742

        OK has become a hero to me – I understand that Obama did not carry ONE county in OK – that to me is awesome – thanks to a great neighbor.

    How about coming to Hornady’s home state, Nebraska? Home to Cabela’s also. Set up in North Platte, and I would go to work for you.

  • Jan N Ben Lucky

    This is what happens when the riff raff liberal carpet baggers move from the states they left destroyed from their liberal/progressive socialism and come to good conservative states and infest them with their cancerous politics. They are the typhoid mary’s of the present day

    • no_limit_neckbeard

      They’re worse than locusts. Too bad we can’t spray for liberals.

  • David Herzog

    Magpul, why not set up shop in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan? We love our guns up here. Lots of hunters and people that respect the Constitution.

  • Jim McCormack

    If my purchase of ANYTHING comes from a business in Colorado , I’ll find another source. This Korean Fighting vet is damned serious about that..

    Cooke won’t enforce new state gun laws

    Weld County Sheriff John Cooke said he won’t enforce either gun-control measure waiting to be signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper, saying the laws are “unenforceable” and would “give a false sense of security.”

    Cooke said Democratic lawmakers are uninformed but are scrambling in reaction to recent tragedies in the nation.

    Cooke said the other bill would also technically ban all magazines because of a provision that outlaws any magazine that can be altered. He said all magazines can be altered to a higher capacity.

    Cooke said he, like other county sheriffs, “won’t bother enforcing” the laws because it will be impossible for them to keep track of how the requirements are being met by gun owners. He said he and other sheriffs are considering a lawsuit against the state to block the measures if they are signed into law.

    “Are we going to stop all criminals from getting guns? No,” said Democratic Rep. Beth McCann, a sponsor of the background checks bill.

  • Clint Norwood

    I guess CO is now another herd state.
    Moooooove away

  • Jim Bills

    Colorado loves their Illegal aliens and dislikes American citizens rights under the constitution. What a joke of a state legislature …

  • Doubleace

    Not to worry about gun bans. The patriots of 1770’s were considered outlaws by the ruling elite, but it didn’t stop them from kicking the king and his boys out. If they make guns illegal I guess I will just be an outlaw, but only by the thieves and criminals in our government. There is right and there is wrong, I will do what is right according to the constitution.

  • chevyll

    I can’t wait to see the company pull out of the state. As far as gun and ammo sales are concerned in this state …If i were a supplier of guns and ammo i would restrict sales to the state. All manufactures should stop selling guns in the state and you will see the citizens start to pack up and leave . Fellow gun owners…Move to Florida or Texas.

  • David Saylor

    Springfield, Missouri would love to have Magpul. We need the jobs and we are gun friendly!!

  • Blade_Runner_1776

    Californians Californicating Colorado. Liberalism is a CANCER. I REFUSE to buy anything made in Colorado. We either hang together or these dope smoking liberals are going to hang us separately.

  • GibbyD

    this one Colorado can just ignore . If anyone is taken to court over it , the case will eventually end up in the US supreme court and be overturned . I bet there are thousands of patriot Americans who are just waiting and hoping it will be their case and name on the landmark case that overturns it. Remember , go out of your way to make sure they see you disobey this unconstitutional law and maybe your name will be the one listed for all time as the case precedent that upholds our right to privacy and second amendment

  • Simon

    Just what the radical lib are all about creating a situation that make s doing business more difficult in all areas…Congrats to you Joe Biden…I feel so much more safer that you screwed up another industry!

    The legislature couldn’t do it. Hopefully our governor will pull his head out of his ass and not sign this, but I doubt it.

    So, I guess it’s a certainty that “Licking Hoopster” is making himself a documented Enemy Of The Citizens Of Colorado AND The United States by NOT killing this travesty?

  • bill

    if their is ever a uprising in Co believe me their are plenty of assault weapons
    stashed in the state if it comes down to fighting for our rights and get a new government who works for the people

  • mr_charlie

    you need to leave CO and come to FLA
    all freedom loving patriots are welcome, whiney libertads are not!

  • GaylePutt

    Colorado used to be such a wonderful place. Once again the liberals leave CA and/or other failing states for the best places and then ruin them just as they did the places they left making them intolerable to the natives. I hope you stay away from Texas.

  • Sue Margaret Warren

    Magpul-you need to come to Idaho-you will be well received. Everyone in Idaho shoots your magazines already and would love to have you come-seriously!

  • OneWomanWolfPack

    Checking Colorado off of my list as possible states to move to…
    Maybe they should rename it Cali-rado….

  • Steven

    Come to Idaho! Our efforts to augment and expand our current concealed carry is working its way through the state legislation now. Great hunting, fishing, and one of the lowest population densities around…clean air and water. What more can you want? Magpul should come here also!

  • zuma 50

    I’m canceling all vacation plans to Co. both now and in the future.

  • Jim

    I just canceled a 7,500 dollar hunting trip to Colorado. I would have paid for a flight, spent 4 nights in a hotel, rented a car and eaten 15 meals in the state. I feel good about my boycott. I don’t believe the b.s. about it hurting the wrong people. They voted the idiots into office. Colorado can do without while New Mexico enjoys the fruits of my labor!!!

  • Paul Lewis

    Is it me, or are the Democrats trying to make the US much like when the USSR existed regulating its citizens by muting their voices?

  • Paul Lewis

    Everyone needs to make sure Senator Frankenfeinstein’s Bill is crushed whenever they present it. Makes no sense to chop down an entire tree of ripe fruit just because of one rotten apple.

  • Michael Adams

    If you outlaw guns then only the outlaws will have them. When you are raped or mugged remember you outlawed the gun that could have protected you. If you give these liberals the least little in road then soon they will have all citizens unarmed and ripe for government control. Hitler and Obama same old crap just a different day.

  • Larry Foster

    lets hope there is a big change in state reps and their senate next election.

  • Larry Foster

    don’t you just love how Libs fuck themselves. I do hope Magpul keeps their promise and leaves.

  • richard40

    Colorodo used to be a really great conservative state. They were even cited as a great state in Atlass shrugged. They must have been overun by leftist expatriots from CA. Good lesson for TX there, only welcome CA expatriots if they are not leftists, otherwise you are better off without them.

  • richard40

    I could understand it when CO legalized pot, after all they could have been joined in by libertarians, but to pass this kind of gun control indicates the leftists have completely taken over the state, and they may well be hopeless if the libertarians and conservatives cant take it back quickly.

  • Richard L. Misner

    I would hope someone would challenge the law in the courts!

  • Gary Hine

    Adios Colorado ski vacations. Plenty of mountains and snow elsewhere in states where constitutional rights are respected.

  • Steven Gaydos

    berretta is leaving maryland as well our elected officials dont care what we want either

  • svartalf

    What difference does it make? Heh… Consider that not a single one of these laws they’ve passed and Hickenlooper is about to sign into law pass muster under the test given by District of Columbia v. Heller or the subsequent two decisions on the subject, they’re about to bring to law a Void law (you can’t go and pass a law that violates the specifics of the Bill of Rights or any Decisions wherein the Supreme Court calls out laws of this nature…they’re void upon their face…).

    Doing so, they commit a Felony under 18 USC 242- and the law is unenforceable.

    It makes a lot of difference. It’s the difference between a court case, and an action to recall/impeach a lot of people in Office.
