    It seems when you don't stand up for your rights and jobs can disappear hopefully disasters like this will not continue, I hope that Co. can turn this around and that they do not turn into the second California.

    Legalized marijuana is projected to bring in an additional $67+ million to Colorado, so it wouldn't surprise me to see the Dems pass this off as basically and even swap. Basically a "fixed size pie" approach to life, as opposed to making the pie bigger.

    For me personally, I would rather have Magpul in my back yard than a bunch of pot growing and selling operations.

    Got what those Dems voted for. All those Kommiefornia Transplants have really wreaked havoc on this State. And Bloomberg {Snake} just loves it.

    May this be the nail in the coffin for Colorado democrats.

    Kudos to Magpul for keeping their word. Despite what some people may think, a move is a rather expensive thing for a company to do. I'm glad to see Magpul decided to bite the bullet, stand up for their beliefs and stand behind what they said. They could have easily came out and said after crunching the numbers, it just wasn't feasible and they'll have to stay put. I believe their business will be a lot better off now, in more ways than one.

    They aren't the only company leaving their oppressive state in the rearview mirror and let's hope they won't be the last.

    Yes because the current goal is to grow 0% in this economy. What happens in two years when Colorado legalize the private growing of the Mary Jane, guess what happens to all that revenue. I'm not arguing with you , I'm just saying the goal is to have your economy grown not swap one industry for another and say see we didn't loose any money! Well guess what you didn't gain anything either besides legalizing a drug that still is illegal under federal law. Now in Ten years you'll have to cover the medical care for all the overweight pot heads that toke up everyday because they can't stop getting the munchies......Yes democrats real solid plan!

    I'm all for Magpul getting out of Colorado and moving someplace where they are valued.

    Now I wonder when Colt (Connecticut), Springfield Armory (Illinois) and Kimber (New York of all places) are going to get with the program and tell their respective home states to go pound sand?

    Why is it that some of the best weapons are made in the states with the most draconian laws? I've got my eye on a new Colt Stainless Commander, but I am not sending my dollars to a hostile regime. Maybe I can find a nice used one.

    Why do you get this idea that they are not valued? These laws were pushed on us against our will by some politicians that thought they knew better than the people that elected them. Now that three of them are out of office, they have learned what Colorado really values. Claiming that we don't value Magpul is just dishonest. That would be the same as me claiming that you value socialized health care because Obama and his pals got it passed.

    Indiana is a very Business and Gun friendly State. I hope many of the businesses stuck in a communist leaning State take a good look at us. I believe they will like what they find in Our Hoosier State.
