    Magpul suing to invalidate new CO gun laws

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
    MAGPUL INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES LAWSUIT TO INVALIDATE COLORADO GUN CONTROL MEASURES


    Denver, Colorado – May 17th, 2013 - Magpul Industries, an Erie, Colorado, based manufacturer of firearms accessories, announced today that it has joined 53 Colorado County Sheriffs and other plaintiffs in filing a lawsuit this morning to invalidate gun control measures recently passed by the Colorado legislature and enacted by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.

    The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court and establishes that Colorado House Bill 1224 (magazine restrictions) and House Bill 1229 (universal background checks) violate the constitutional rights of lawful gun owners located in Colorado.

    Duane Liptak, Director of Product Management and Marketing for Magpul Industries, said that these gun control laws do nothing other than restrict the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves and Magpul is committed to invalidating these infringements:

    “Colorado’s recently passed gun control laws are a direct assault on the constitutional rights of the responsible people who live in and visit this great state. These laws will do nothing to enhance public safety and only place unreasonable limitations on the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves. While Magpul is currently in the process of moving its operations out of Colorado, we will not turn our back on our native state. Extreme gun control interests have forced the passage of these unconstitutional laws in Colorado, and as a company, we are resolved to restore those rights to the people.”

    Magpul’s outside legal counsel, Jon Anderson, of Holland & Hart LLP, said that the Colorado gun control bills are unconstitutional and so poorly drafted that the new laws would be enforced in an inconsistent manner:

    “Colorado’s gun control laws are in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution. In addition, these bills were so poorly drafted that no one agrees on the scope of the government regulation. If teams of lawyers cannot agree on what these bills prohibit, how can we expect citizens to abide by these laws and how can we rely on law enforcement to implement these laws in a consistent manner?”

    Magpul will continue to support productive efforts to FREE COLORADO from government regulations that imperil the rights of law abiding firearm owners.

    So they moved their operations out of state AND they are still suing the state of CO?

    Bravo, Magpul, bravo.

    These guys walk the walk, and do what they say they are going to do. All too rare these days.

    It's really nice to see a company that doesn't just care about the bottom line.

    CO drafted a bad law: Magpul floods the state with 30-rnd mags, so no person may be left unprotected.
    CO passes the bad law, but makes an exception for Magpul: Magpul leaves on principle.
    CO upholds the bad law: Magpul sues to protect the rights of a state they no longer inhabit.

    Good on you, Magpul. Good on you...

    It was discussed in this thread: Colo. Sheriffs sue over new gun laws, which includes a link to an article Written by Dave Workman referencing 54 Sheriffs. So the numbers may be slightly off but there absolutely are a lot of Sheriffs in CO who are joining this legal fight.

    It is 54 in this story.

    54 is last I heard from Sheriff Maketa. Not bad, 87% of the total of 62.

    Oh, you mean a Business and the Sheriff's association are gathering to overcome the Progressive Left. That will really leave them 'Butt Hurt', no?
