Local Media In Colorado Pick Up The Magpul Story

As reported earlier, Colorado HB 1224 would ban the manufacture of standard capacity magazines in that state. This, of course, would directly impact Boulder-based Magpul and their 200 workers. On Tuesday, the bill passed out of committee on a party-line 7 to 4 vote and was sent to the full Colorado House for action.

It looks like the local Colorado media has finally picked up on the story. Fox31 News out of Denver interviewed company officials and toured the production line.

One of the things I noticed in the video was that the majority of the workers assembling magazines appeared to be Hispanic. The representatives voting to close down their jobs, by contrast, consist of five whites, one Hispanic, and one African-American. This is just an interesting observation about progressive priorities.


  1. This story proves one thing: idiocy is no longer a barrier to a long and successful career in Colorado Democratic politics.

    I'll bet Magpul has already been contacted by some folks in Texas and invited to "come on down."
