Earlier today, a spokesman for Colorado’s Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper stated that on Wednesday morning he will sign a bill into law that bans magazines that hold more than 15 rounds or can be converted to do so. The latter part of this legislation has become even more contentious as almost all magazines feature a removable floor plate for cleaning may also allow a magazine to be modified to accommodate more than 15 rounds of ammunition. This could essentially be used to ban virtually any magazine with a floor plate regardless of the number of bullets it is designed to contain. Additionally, it is believed the Governor will sign laws that require universal background checks for firearms transfers, a requirement that transferees pay for the background checks and banning online certification for concealed-carry permits.
This action on the part of the Government of Colorado will most assuredly result in MagPul Industries as well as its suppliers and subcontractors moving from the state taking with them more than $80 Million in revenue and over 700 jobs. Additionally, The Outdoor Channel has sworn to leave Colorado if such legislation becomes law.
