Colorado Democrats Driving Businesses Out of State

2nd Amendment

Evidently, Colorado Democrats aren’t concerned about their 7.6% unemployment rate with their newly proposed legislation.

On Friday, the Colorado State House of Representatives which is controlled by Democrats, used a voice vote to give an early approval House Bill 1224 that would drive out some of the state’s businesses.  The bill is designed to limit all ammunition magazines to 15 rounds or fewer.

If the bill is passed and become law in a state known for hunting and gun ownership, at least two companies said that they would relocate to states that are more gun friendly.

Magpul, who employs around 600 people, manufactures 30 round clips and other equipment for assault rifles.  Most of the high capacity clips are sold to military customers.  Although the bill provides an exemption for magazine manufacturing companies and their employees, Doug Smith, COO for Magpul said the company will leave Colorado if the bill is passed and made law:

“If we’re able to stay in Colorado and manufacture a product, but law-abiding citizens of the state were unable to purchase the product, customers around the state and the nation would boycott us for remaining here.  Staying here would hurt our business.”
