Magpul Industries is moving its firearm accessories manufacturing operations and corporate headquarters out of Colorado because of recent anti-gun legislation.

The company has been working with Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead’s support to relocate manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, within 12-16 months, according to a statement issued Thursday.

“Wyoming and Magpul are a great match,” Mead said in a statement. “We offer Magpul an attractive tax environment, stable and reasonable regulations, not to mention a firm commitment to uphold the Second Amendment.”

Magpul is also working with Gov. Rick Perry to move its corporate headquarters to one of three Texas sites, the statement said.

“In Texas, we understand that freedom breeds prosperity, which is why we’ve built our economy around principles that allow employers to innovate, keep more of what they earn, and create jobs,” Perry said.

It’s no surprise that the company is leaving Colorado.

“Magpul made the decision to relocate in March 2013 and has proceeded on an aggressive but deliberate path,” Magpul Industries Chief Operating Officer, Doug Smith said. “These dual moves will be carried out in a manner that ensures our operations and supply chain will not be interrupted and our loyal customers will not be affected.”

The company pledged to move its operations after Colorado lawmakers passed sweeping gun-control measures, signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper in March.

“Moving operations to states that support our culture of individual liberties and personal responsibility is important,” Magpul Chief Executive Officer, Richard Fitzpatrick said. “This relocation will also improve business operations and logistics as we utilize the strengths of Texas and Wyoming in our expansion.”

    California is also getting a message by way of companies leaving because of the tax burden and other typically California reasons. Now it seems Colorado wants to join that club.

    Thank goodness people can at least still leave for better and more comfortable climes whenever control freaks want to exercise their madness.

      My wonderful home state of Illinois is in the same position. We have companies and people leaving. But after all the incompetents that we have had running the state who can blame them?

    Ah, what does Colorado need with Magpul’s money, they’ll collect tax money on pot sales to manufacturing workers….Doh!

      Do they carry your favorite German Lugers?

      We should have invaded Colorado so Magpul wouldn’t be forced to vacate their home that has been overrun by California Bolsheviks.

    What I would still like to hear is how much revenue the state has lost from hunters and fisherman that have gone to other states for their sporting trips. Colorado was one of the main places for elk hunting trips. There are people that spent several thousand dollars each year in hunting trips. This money has stopped for the most part. It is bound to hurt the state’s revenues.

      It doesn’t matter to the Colorado lawmakers and fringe fanatics (Bolsheviks – they are not liberals or progressives). In true DemoBolshevik fashion they will just raise every Coloradans taxes to make up the deficiencies. They will hide the losses this way, much like the phoney unemployment statistics they use.

      1. rwp24382 says:

        Bolsheviks, progressives, liberals, communist, Democrap/Islamic/Communist party It’s all the same crap. They always want to bully people around, yet say how they are for the little guy and what they do is for the greater good of the people. They are elitist that think they are smarter than you and they know how to do things better. As in this administration, we have found out how well that has worked.

  6. Benjamin Dover says:

    If we are to preserve liberty from the shackles of pseudo-science and centralized power, we must understand and abide by moral standards that transcend the rule of law.

    1. Vunderkint says:

      What?

  7. Vunderkint says:

    The progressive statists agenda outweigh any economic concerns or Constitutionally protected rights. Remember this when you consider someone to vote for.

    bomp bomp bomp…another one bites the dust.

    When will these liberals learn…never. Too many useful idiots to serve them and keep voting them back in to office.

    The same thing needs to happen in Virginia. Beretta will not move to Virginia because of the new governors gun control agenda. Michael Bloomberg paid millions for T.V. ads to get governor Terry McAuliffe elected! Thanks for the jobs we didn’t get governor! If you believe in freedom join the NRA at NRA.org and/or any pro-gun origination. The Obama administration and democrats are doing everything they can to take our right to defend ourselves and our families and will take our guns. They disrespect American gun owners and veterans. It is time to fight back for our rights. Think about it! How many lies have been told by this administration?
