    It depends upon whether they have the courage of their conviction or if they are too cowardly to face the consequences of their folly. Either way my contempt for them can't be expressed on the forum.

    With Democrats controlling the Governor's office, the State House and the State Senate, there is NO downside for dems to go ahead and gratify their uber-liberal progressive base of supporters. I predict that the democrats will pass--and get the governor's signature on every anti-gun bill they can pass.

    I am equal parts angered and sickened that Colorado has come to this sorry state of affairs. I cannot wait for the day to come when democrats no longer control our legislature!

    Colorado used to be a real place. A place that a young guy would want to go to. The real West. Oh my..... Damn shame it's what it is now.

    We need to keep the pressure on them and the Gov. We'll lose MP, vacationers, hunters, you name it. All for nothing except for some feel good emotional whimps.

    We need to make the Dems realize they are going to lose their jobs in 18 months.

    If they pass this into law, Colorado wont see me hunting or fishing there anymore. I refuse to patronize businesses who wont support the 2nd Amendment. I bet Utah would welcome Magpul with open arms.

    I do hope Colorado doesn't pass this stupid bill. But if they do- Come to Texas Magpul! We'd be glad to have you. You'd like it here. No state income tax and very business-friendly.

    Ill second that. Texas is very business-friendly and I'd be proud to have a company like Magpul here.

    My cousin is currently living in Denver, but is from Texas. He was in town this past weekend and we were talking about what's going on in Colorado. He said people there just hate guns, plain and simple. Sadly I see Colorado going down a similar road as NY....dems giving themselves and their minions the warm n' fuzzies for outlawing those scary inanimate objects.

    From what I have been reading on Magpul's facebook page and some articles they have linked to the Denver Post (if I remember the name right) they are serious about leaving. They said that with the way they are set up it wouldn't take much to move and there wouldn't be much reduction of their production while moving. I just hope that they won't sell to any CO agencies.

    That may very well be their next step. I hope they add NY and CA to that list as well.
