Unnoticed amid dozens of tract homes in the Denver suburbs, a nondescript industrial building is suddenly in the middle of the gun control debate in Colorado. Magpul has issued lawmakers an ultimatum potentially worth millions: Pass you gun control bill, and the business will move.
The gun debate is heating up in Colorado, with politicians from all over the state trying to come up with a way to handle gun violence in a post-Newtown world. Two Colorado Democrats, specifically, have suggested that carrying ballpoint pens or learning judo are better alternatives than carrying a gun.
"When you have the means available to you at every single corner to commit a horrendous act, we will continue to see what we've seen, which is the status quo, where unfortunately gun violence and violence in general is prevalent in our communities," said Democratic Sen. Jessie Ulibarri, who will be considering the magazine bill on Monday in the Judiciary Committee.
"When Congressman [Gabrielle] Giffords was shot and there was a shooting in an Arizona supermarket, people who were unarmed took that person down when he stopped to reload," Mr. Ulibarri told the committee on Jan. 28.
