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.
