  1. Looks like Magpul made good on their promise to leave Colorado. Very rare and admirable for a mega-corp.

    Sadly, the same cannot be said for Remington who backed down and decided to play ball with New York after what that state just pulled.

    Magpul Magazine Manufacturing Fully out of Colorado

    Following through on their promise to leave the state if Colorado were to pass new gun control laws including a magazine capacity limit, Magpul is shifting their manufacturing out of the state.

    From now on, not a single magazine will be manufactured or assembled in Colorado. ”We have started making PMAGs outside CO for the first time ever. The sights are made outside CO. We are actively moving forward with moving other items out.”

    Magpul had originally planned to include more details about the shift but it coincided with the Boston Marathon bombing, and as such, they’re waiting for a better time to talk shop.
    “We had some communications regarding our pending move and the process of choosing our new locations to put out this week, but the events in Boston make this a poor time for that, and we will hold off those announcements until later. Our support is with the residents and first responders who are dealing with the tragedy of loss and the fractured lives created by the acts perpetrated by these evil individuals. Stay alert out there … there are many in this world who wish harm on our society. Meet them with strength so as to discourage their ilk from attempting to prey on others.”

    Magpul has not disclosed where they have relocated to, although previously they said they were looking at a neighboring state.

    I think they are in Wyoming but then I do wonder if they really did move. Why do they need a major announcement for where they moved to? Why are they worried about timing? I guess I am just suspicious because why not just say we are producing in ______. Seems odd.

    I don't understand why they're so cagey about where they're going either. I guess if they really have moved out then ok but it just reminds me of those people on message boards who get mad and say "I'm leaving! I'm really going this time! Ok I'm leaving now! You'll miss me! I'm going now!" and then two days later they're still posting on the board.

    Opsec. Get the move done before publicly announcing it so nobody can interfere before it is completed. I'm guessing Eric Holder knows where they are going, but doesn't get any political points from opposing it unless "they started it" by making a big public fanfare over the destination. Then he could appear to be concerned for public safety by putting pressure on the destination state to stop the move. Big headache and bad publicity for Magpul they would rather avoid. So move quietly and announce after it is complete. Then Holder just looks like a sore loser mean person if he tries to punish them. And it keeps undue pressure off of the destination governor (although WY or TX would probably tell him to pound sand publicly).

    Also, the not mentioning it right after Boston kept fodder out of the hands of the anti-gunners who would have linked products like Magpul's stuff to terrorist activity and used the hot emotions at that time to get people to back their agenda even though it had nothing to do with the bombing. "We need to ban that stuff so they will not use it in future attacks because they COULD have used it in this one but chose not to. Let's ban it before the DO use it".

    Dang loud mouthed, idiot libtards... Ruining this country for the rest of us.

    My initial reaction was they were possibly negotiating tax abatement deals with a few communities vying for the jobs and need to be quiet until those processes resolve. Lots of towns would like some manufacturing jobs and will give up tax revenue to secure them. Sometimes in dealing with union contracts it is to the company's advantage to keep location options open until an agreement is inked.

    Perhaps part of the deal was to let the new hosting State make the announcement to let their constituents know they are going to remain pro-gun. If I was the mayor of a town that had landed a production company with that kind of client base, I would look forward to the ribbon cutting

    I think they will continue to go through with it if they have to, but might also be trying to reverse the tyrannical and idiotic "law making", too. This would save them the move...well, it's what I would do.

    I agree Broker- I don't think they have move much and are hoping that the laws change. I am sure they dump lots of money into the recall campaigns, but I don't see how that is going to get these laws reversed.

    Well, an unconstitutional law doesn't have to be obeyed. Unfortunately, the majority of sheeple seem to think "he who wears the hat" gets to make the rules, and this country is not the King or Queen's land (officially), even though the Bank of England may very well be the primary share holder in the FED, but I digress...

    People just need to start saying "NO!", meaning it, and backing it up with routine honking while driving past the bureaucrats' doors. Then, if that doesn't work, drag them into the streets naked, burn their house down and tell them they have 3 hours to be out of town or it's hunting season opening day for politicians.

    Not a good idea to hunt politicians, once you skin them, and get rid of the crap, there is nothing left. Hardy worth the ammo.

    Makes a bad stew when the public good is not the spice of life in politics. If they can not represent in the fashion that the people demand... then they are part of the problem and not the solution to what ill's the nation.....

    I agree. And at the same time, perhaps this is also the problem itself. We are experiencing, like never before, a counter-culture revolution. For many decades, this nation has undergone incremental change in its core beliefs --that being, traditional authority. From federally directed public schooling to professors of universities and various foundations, and of course, the corporate media, we have been indoctrinated and inundated with socialist ideology.

    If I could attempt to break down the percentages as I see it, I would list it as follows:

    40% of the population is indifferent, unwilling to adhere to any principles. They sway and bend to almost any influence, and it's typically the most prevalent type of interest, such as the all encompassing media.

    25% are essentially completely sold on the concepts of liberalism, socialism and globalism to varying extent.

    25% are basically caught up in conservative beliefs and are unwilling to accept alternate views.

    10% are mostly awake, pay no allegiance to either of the two political parties, and tend to lean toward traditional constitutional authority.

    Now, this is by no means an exact science, and a few percentage points can be assigned either way and all around this spectrum. I simply used this method to roughly describe how this is all laid out. Of course, there is always a percentage of people who just don't fall into any category --I assigned them to the indifferent crowd by default. In conclusion, I can only add that this entire situation we have today concerning corruption and greed is mostly a result of division. We are a divided nation, absolutely and undeniably.

    A person may ask, "Why are the Liberals and Conservatives both at 25% on your scale?" This is not the point I am making. The two major parties are very close in comparison. Some would say this is on purpose, but I am not absolutely certain. In any case, every "election" appears to be a pretty close race between the two parties and in the end, the people are left with feeling this was all legitimate. The 40% crowd flip-flop and generally lean toward either, and this tends to be represented by "elections", and are manifest by popular opinion, economic conditions, media influence and entertainment and social factors. Yes, what I am saying, is that most people simply cannot think for themselves.

    What does this all mean? It means that roughly 60-65 percent of all people will most likely accept tyranny. Like it or not, that's how the numbers play out.

    Fortunately for us @Brokor, we in the 35 to 40% have most all of the private firearms.... to offset the government, if required, to keep this a nation free of tyranny and oppression. [sawgunner]
