After the passage of new laws in several states that restrict a law-abiding citizen’s right to purchase firearms to keep their families safe from crime, gun companies like Magpul are taking swift and principled action. Magpul plans to move their headquarters away from Colorado in the coming months and cater to the needs of Colorado before new state restrictions are put in place.
According to a message released on their Facebook page, the manufacturer of gun accessories will sell Colorado residents up to 10 AR magazines a piece, charging customers a flat $5 shipping fee, and will allow those residents to bypass the current ordering queue. “Before [new laws take effect], and Magpul is forced to leave the state in order to keep to our principles, we will be doing our best to get standard capacity PMAGs into the hands of any Colorado resident that wants them.”
“Our customers outside of Colorado,” the company noted, “please know that our PMAG production will continue at an ever-increasing rate until we do relocate, shipments to our distributors in other states will continue, and that we do not expect relocation to significantly impact PMAG production.”
Magpul’s headquarters at the moment is located in Boulder, Colorado – a western suburb of the state’s capital of Denver. Magpul’s yearly sales contribute over $85 million to the Colorado state treasury every year.
