Speaking of magazine bans, back in 2013 when anti-gun Colorado legislators banned magazines that hold more than 15 rounds, one of the country’s largest producers of magazines and accessories left the state.
Now the fallout continues, as Magpul Industries recently announced it has reached an agreement to supply magazines to the U.S. Marine Corps—a move that will make Colorado’s spurning of the company even more costly.
“My take is there is no big surprise here,” said Colorado Senate President Kevin Grantham. “You tell a company they can't sell a product in your state, when it's a good product and a popular product. They move across the state line, they get a lot of support and they get a big contract. We lost not only the jobs they had when they were here, we lost the jobs they've grown into since and we're losing all the jobs they're going to grow into in future years with this contract.”
California DOJ Backs Away From Emergency Mag Regulation
Late last week, the California Department of Justice (DOJ) backed down from its proposed “emergency” regulations on large-capacity magazines, asking the Office of Administrative Law (OAL) to withdraw them from consideration.
According to a report from NRA-ILA, thousands of individuals weighed in despite the suspect timing of the five-day comment period opening at the start of the Christmas weekend when few were paying attention. The NRA would like to thank all those who submitted comments and made their voices heard! This would not have been possible without your efforts.
The NRA and CRPA submitted a letter to the DOJ and OAL opposing the proposed “emergency" regulations on large-capacity magazines that can be read here. A full analysis created by the NRA and CRPA attorneys of the proposed “emergency” regulations on large-capacity magazines can be read here.
Milwaukee Carry Permit Holder Fights Off Armed Robbers
A Milwaukee man, who is licensed to carry a concealed firearm for self-defense, fought off two armed robbers last Tuesday night.
The 36-year-old man was out walking his dog when two men approached him, at least one with a gun, and tried to rob him. The man then drew his own gun and shot both of his assailants in self-defense.
One of the alleged robbers, 17-year-old Deonte Thomas, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other man, who was injured during the attempted robbery, was taken into custody later.
