Here we go! Will MAGPUL pull out now?
They said they would...
I don’t see how Magpul has a choice. They were unequivical in their statements. This just serves to demonstrate that Democrats are driven by blind ideology.
I’m just wondering whether any law enforcement agency will have the b*lls to try to enforce it.
Do all the do-gooders feel better now? Buncha fairies.
So sad what this state has become. :(
Very very low to non-existent on the CO enforcement totem poll, but maybe in Denver county and a couple others.
Worse than that.
Why would you think they wouldn't? Sure, at first some sheriffs say they won't - but in time they will mostly all enforce the new regulations. At minimum it will give law enforcement another excuse to go after people they want to harass. These are the new laws. For those that don't like them, remember to vote Republican even if the candidate isn't pure. The other option is to leave and go to a more conservative state.

I live next door to Colorado. I have a CCW permit. Does this mean I can’t bring my carry weapon (9 mm Springfield XD, 16 rd mag) into the state any more? No way I’m visiting the crime-infested hellhole known as Denver without it.
Looks like my tourism dollars will be spent in Wyoming from now on. Not that the loss of my pitiful vacation budget will matter to anyone.
Really sticks in my craw that such a terrific state like Colorado, with its great, westerny history and heritage, has become such a faggoty, gun-grabbing, Obama-voting, hippie-dopehead state.
IMO, the ones with b*lls are those who refuse to endorse it, but your point is well taken.
Yes, I really hope the vermin pay for this in 2014, but I just don’t know given how far the state has declined.
So...what are the laws regarding recall in CO? Any chance that the governor or some legislators could be recalled?
Makes me sick.
I’ve heard there are several folks in the Colorado Springs area that are Wicken or however it is spelled.
March on the Capital, burn it down.
Makes more sense than whining on the Internet, writing another angry email, showing up at hearings where your opinion is worth its weight in atmosphere, or spending millions of dollars trying to “work through the courts” for the next five years it would take to get this repealed...
Again, I really wish I had bought land in Wyoming, not Colorado. Then again, it was hard to tell back when I bought the land. Owens was governor back then.
Wow... Chickenpooper and the other dems have accomplished three goals:
1. Passed a law that doesn’t affect the crime rate one iota,
2. Passed a law that many local law enforcement officials won’t enforce, and
3. Passed a law that has chased a rooted, longtime business presence to another state, and almost immediately killed 400+ jobs, not to mention the ripple effect.
Well done, fools... what’ll you do for an encore?
I have 6.4 acres in Teller County over by Divide I'd hope to someday retire on... but now? Oh, hell no! It's going on the market this weekend.
"Wiccan." And you're right. There's a fairly large presence of them in Manitou Springs.
Yeah, I bought 60 acres SE of Pueblo and then built a house on it for weekends and retirement eventually. Now I’m stuck with it. Grrr.
Hey Hickenbloomberg - If any of these laws were in place in 2005, would they have prevented your (illegal alien) employee Raul Gomez-Garcia from murdering Detective Donnie Young?
“...has become such a faggoty, gun-grabbing, Obama-voting, hippie-dopehead state.”
Which is followed by higher crime, higher regulations on people and business, higher taxes/fees/surcharges/enslavement, and eventually population shifts as the mobile get out of Dodge. Or Denver in this case.
Further proof that Colorado is now a deep shade of blue. Stick a fork in ‘em.
Lickenpooper needs to be arrested for blatantly violating the Constitution. Dragged into the street and whipped.
Sure am glad I didn’t expend anything on improvements. You might be able to get yours sold, though...
Support the NRA. They have a team of lawyers ready to challenge these laws. They are clearly unconstitutional. If you disagree with these laws, fight them. “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face...” — Mike Tyson.
The magazine bill is very bad.
Democrats don't care if taxpaying citizens lose jobs when companies like Magpul leave the state.
In their minds anyone worth knowing lives off the government in one way or another.
Well, bless your heart.
denver already bans high capacity magazines. during magpul’s airlift for commierado residents they would not ship to a denver address.
It ain’t our grandpa’s West anymore. Yes, it’s sickening, throwing away their rights, safety and heritage with both hands. We all know what the end result will be.
Good thing you don’t have a Springfield Armory XDM with the 19 round mags. I’d be pissed if all of a sudden I’m stuck with a paper weight after buying the gun specifically for it’s high capacity magazine.
Yeah - I was considering going to see Rush perform at the Pepsi Center in early August this summer.
All of them will, mark my words.
Passage of the law just devalued your land to anyone who is a firearms owner.
We were once going to retire to Colorado. We had the city picked out and were making real estate inquiries. Then I started reading ugly reports about skyrocketing crime and a massive illegal and liberal influx. Seemingly overnight the state became California on the Front Range. So no chance that we will retire there, and probably no chance that we will ever visit again.
Assuming that I even get to retire, Alaska is looking better all the time. Someplace far away from busybodies, nannies and Obamagube's storm troopers.
There is some discussion about getting a constitutional ammendment put on the ballot for the 2014 election that prohibits thest types of laws.
Sad, isn't it... and unfortunately, once the liberals plant their tentacles down, they never let go. It's conquered territory.
This, from Magpul’s Facebook site:
With the signing of the HB 1224, we want to reassure Colorado residents, now officially in occupied territory, that the “Boulder Airlift” will continue until we can no longer legally ship to CO residents at the approach of the July 1 deadline, so long as demand continues.
We are looking at additional ways to give Coloradans the opportunity to buy the magazines they need prior to the enactment date, as although we’ve been swamped with tens of thousands of orders, our shipping department limitations have only allowed us to get a few hundred thousand magazines out to CO residents...a small portion of our monthly production. We’ll continue to support the Airlift as long as demand exists, and up to the active date of the legislation, and we’ve allocated a little over a million magazines for the effort up to that point, give or take.
Customers in the rest of the country should rest assured that the airlift only takes a small portion of our production, and magazines and other products are continuing to ship to the rest of the nation. Our transition to a new home will occur in a phased and orderly a manner to allow us to continue to serve our customers during the move, as well as to allow an orderly transition for affected employees. We are actively working on those plans.
Not unlikely, but it doesn't really help. The crime is forever (the law) yet the punishment is finite (electoral losses). The pendulum always swings back the other way eventually (back left again after the "punishment"), and when was the last time you saw Republicans repealing stuff en masse when it was their turn to be in power?
