Gun makers facing new limits urged to relocate

March 31, 2013

Firearms and ammunition manufacturers facing new gun control restrictions in their home states are receiving invitations to flee critics and move to states that have more favorable conditions for gun sales.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper earlier this month signed bills that require background checks for private and online gun sales and ban ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
Magpul Industries, which manufactures firearms accessories and ammunition magazines, said on its Facebook page that it would have “no choice” but to leave if the magazine bill was signed, causing an opening for states eager to prove they’re more gun-friendly.

Grassroots Facebook pages have popped up – some, before the Colorado bills were even signed – encouraging Magpul to settle in places like Alabama, West Virginia or Texas. Alaska state Rep. Tammie Wilson’s staff created a Facebook page, too, called “Magpul Industries – Alaska Wants You.”

In Texas, Gov. Rick Perry has made overtures to Magpul, which announced on its Facebook page following the signing of the magazine bill that the moving process has begun. A new location has yet to be determined by the company.
