Colorado, which used to be a bastion of freedom until it was invaded and taken over by Californians, is looking to pass a bill banning standard capacity magazines. Ironically, one of the prime suppliers of such magazines is Magpul, which is located – at least for now – in Colorado. Ever since the left started to gleefully dance on the corpses of children in hopes of dumping on the Second Amendment, standard capacity magazines have been impossible to find, as people have been buying them up. Magpul has ramped up production, but even so they have not been able to keep up with demand. The result of that may be that Coloradans might be banned from buying standard magazines before they even got a chance to buy them. So Magpul has come up with a good idea:

Verified Colorado residents will be able to purchase up to ten (10) standard capacity AR/M4 magazines directly from Magpul, and will be given immediate flat-rate $5 shipping, bypassing our current order queue.

If you’re not a Coloradan, your order may be delayed due to filling Colorado orders first. I don’t think too many people will be upset about that… everyone accepts that you take care of the people in most immediate need first.

    I’ve been begging Magpul to stay and fight. There are less and less places to run to anymore, and each retreat means more resources the oppressors can deploy against the next bastion of freedom. Magpul has resources most citizens do not, and should be willing to play dirty if necessary. Surely they can afford a politician or two, some skeevy lawyers and some photogenic people to make up sob stories to gain mindshare.

      That’s not practical when Nanny Bloomberg is willing to drop $2M to back an anti-gun candidate.

        so what happens when Colorado adds its money to Bloomberg’s? Does the fight get easier? No it doesn’t. It gets harder. And harder.

          My point is that Magpul is NOT that big a company. Yes, they are relatively well known and have a following (which is something they should mobilize) but they can’t pool the resources for something like this that Bloomberg, as a billionaire, can. It’s going to take a lot more than just Magpul acting alone. At the end of the day, the owners of the company have a responsibility to either make a profit, or shut down.

    i heard that some retailers are fighting back by refusing to sell to to LEOs. this is in reference to the bulk ammo buying reports and the restrictions placed on civilians… was wondering where the line would be drawn.

    Man ain’t that the truth!

      At the risk of drawing the blog owner’s ire, I’ll opine: No, it ain’t. (I don’t see glee, and I don’t see dancing on corpses on the part of “the left” (which I assume is shorthand for those speaking in favor of a more regulated access to guns)). And some regulation of such access is allowed without violating the 2nd amendment according to the current body of constitutional law.

        >I don’t see glee

        I do. The likes of Feinstein and Piers Morgan may try to mask it behind feigned outrage, but they come off like charlatans moving into a medieval town ravaged by plague to sell snake oil to the rubes.

        > some regulation of such access is allowed without violating the 2nd amendment

        What many of them are doing is advocating for – and writing bills to – turn law abiding gun owners into felons, and to gut the 2nd Amendment.
