Company Vows To Leave Colorado if State Passes Gun Restrictions

Gov. John Hickenlooper should visit Magpul Industries Corp. and see for himself the impact that passage of gun-control measures would have on the families of about 200 people working for a manufacturer here, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner said Thursday.

Gardner, R-Yuma, and state Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins, toured the company's Erie plant Thursday morning, watching as Magpul employees prepared and assembled high-capacity magazines, firearms accessories and other products ranging from military dog leashes to smartphone cases.

Magpul has threatened to leave Colorado if the Legislature passes, and Hickenlooper signs, gun bills that limit the capacity of ammunition magazines that can be sold and possessed in Colorado.
