In February I noted Magpul would leave Colorado if certain firearm legislation passed. Well the shortsighted legislature in Colorado passed HB1224 which will certainly mean the departure of Magpul from the state once Governor John Hickenlooper signs the bill.
So I think we should invite Magpul to open up shop in North Carolina. We may all at some point get hamstrung by ill-conceived magazine restriction legislation, but if the legislature in NC allowed that to pass I would be surprised. We certainly have some less than stellar representation in our legislature, but they ultimately seem to understand business is good for a state, new business is great for a state, and recruiting a business who is fleeing one state due to asinine legislation would only cause it to leave if similar legislation was enacted. So contact Magpul and let them know we want their business and their jobs to come to NC. C’mon Governor McCrory, make the call and bring them to NC. Here’s the number (877) 462-4785. 😉
