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.

Very very low to non-existent on the CO enforcement totem poll, but maybe in Denver county and a couple others.

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.

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or spending millions of dollars trying to “work through the courts” for the next five years it would take to get this repealed...

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?

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.

"Democrats are driven by blind ideology."

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.

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.

When I was evaluating where to go in 1999, I had a list of states in mind. A brief work assignment in early 2000 helped me cross Colorado off my list. I chose Idaho instead. I would be in a hell of a pickle with my 4 year long "exile" to San Diego if my home and family were sitting it Colorado today.

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.

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?
