Thanks to the gun control blitzkrieg led by Democratic lawmakers last year, Colorado is about to take a hit in the wallet in the midst of an already anemic economy, and lose hundreds of private-sector jobs at a time when they can least afford it.

It will be more than $80 mil. Magpul is helping those employees who want to stay with the company move the two hour drive to their new plant in Cheyenne Wyoming. They will no longer be CO taxpayers or consumers so the loss will be greater than the $80 million estimate. Magpul and its employees are also undoubtedly happy that there is no corporate or individual income tax in WY either.
California and Colorado, just thirty years ago, were thriving jewels of the west with strong economies. Now that the liberals run everything in Sacramento and Denver those two states are economic wastelands. Liberalism is a failure everywhere and it boggles the mind when a majority of the electorate in states vote for this garbage, not realizing the future damage they are doing to themselves.
Wyoming, where men are men and sheep are nervous.
The first part of that sentence contradicts with the second part.
Oh aren’t you just cute.
Not to worry ... CO will make up the lost income through their pot sales ;-)
Yep. If you feel the need to save the enviroment, stray dogs, the snail darter, THE WORLD, vote for a liberal but understand that they will destroy the economic engine that cause them to be affluent enough to worry about this tripe instead of where their next meal is coming from. After the destruction of said economy everyone begins to worry about their next meal and all the liberal claptrap evaporates like a fart in a hurricane along with it’s proponents. We then get to begin rebuilding the destroyed economy just so 30 years later another busy body , do gooder, can come along and screw it up. Wake up America and lets just for go the do gooder, save the freakin whale, stage and just LIVE AND LET LIVE. Get off our backs . We can’t keep fixin’ it just so you have the wherewithal to start whining again.
they can look forward to detroitification thanks to libtard politicians.
I spend time out there once in a while. I have a son and his family in Gillette. If I ever had to move......
That is how the liberals are thinking.
What they do not think of is all the people who are stoned and cannot function costing the state and businesses far more.
Not if they keep ODing. I heard somewhere around 30+ dudes bought the farm in the first two days.
It was a hoax story put out just to get everyone in a tizzy.
As the kids say these days: "Own it, Bitches...!"
Democrats don’t care, as long as they feel good about themselves, that is all that matters.
Naw....that’d be San Francisco.
I would almost expect them to try to do some sort of “wealth exit tax” like California and New York try to do.
