>>Erie, Colo.-based Magpul Industries Corp. announced Thursday that it was moving its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and its headquarters to Texas, making good on a vow it made to leave Colorado during last year’s gun control debate.<<
I just clicked the link and BY MAGIC the details appeared!
They done did it.
The company is Magpul....and HIViz was the other.
Didn’t Texas just pass yet another anti-gun law?
I wish them the best. I may be leaving this turd of a state myself in a few years.
The company is staying in Colorado. They are just simply expanding production of large magazines to WY and TX. This is very inaccurate reporting.
What is the truth?
Glad to see they finally pulled the trigger. Wish they would move to Florida.
Texas —(Ammoland.com)- The 83rd Legislature Regular Session is mostly wrapped up but is back in a special session.
What follows is some helpful information and discussion of the firearms legislation that passed and some points to note for the special session as well as some additional information.
Currently no gun control legislation passed during the regular session including proposals that were introduced to restrict private firearm transfers at gun shows, ban standard capacity magazines, gut the state firearms preemption law and require drug testing for CHL applicants.
The Texas Legislature adjourned its regular session on Memorial Day after passing fifteen pro-Second Amendment measures, and was immediately called back into special session by Governor Rick Perry to address the drawing of district lines in which Federal and State lawmakers will run for re-election next year.
Excellent rollup, thank you!
If voting at the ballot box doesn’t work, voting with your feet is always available.
None that I know of. Legislatue is out of session now.
They can go up on a high spot south of Cheyenne and whiz on Colorado...which wouldn’t be a bad idea...
The comment is a lie. And, Magpul is transferring employees who want to be moved the WY.
I don’t like to give AP clicks!
Thanks for the reply.
Can’t blame them. If I ever get an AR I’ll have to make the two hour drive to Cheyenne.
