Colorado Killing Jobs One Ammunition Magazine Ban at a Time
Posted on February 20, 2013 by Cowboy Byte

Yesterday the Colorado House passed four gun control bills, one of which bans ammunition magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. Magpul Industries, a company that produces some of the highest quality ammunition magazines around, has threatened to leave the state and take hundreds of jobs with it if this legislation is passed by the Senate and signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper.
