Colorado Gun Companies Keep Promise and Leave State


Last month I reported that two firearms related companies had made announcements that they were leaving the state of Colorado due to the anti-gun laws the state had passed.  Three companies had vowed to leave the state: Magpul, Alfred Manufacturing and HiViz.

The companies were being courted by a number of states that are proud of their gun-friendly laws, but the Colorado companies were being rather secretive as to where they might be heading.  That is until now.

HiViz Shooting Systems, formerly located in Fort Collins, manufactures various parts for a number of weapons, some of which are now outlawed under Colorado law.  They have just announced that are moving their entire operations to Laramie, Wyoming.  In their announcement, HiViz stated that their decision on Laramie was partially due to their gun friendly laws, but also due to certain tax advantages and it is an hour away from their Fort Collins location, allowing most of their employees to make the drive and continue to work for them.  Ground breaking for their new facility is expected to take place this summer.

Magpul Industries manufactures high capacity magazines that hold 30 rounds.  Their magazines are now illegal in Colorado and they said that they would not stay in a state that outlaws their product.  According to recent reports, Magpul has already started production in another state, but that location is being kept under wraps until after the NRA Convention being held in Houston.

All I can say is that I’m glad these companies are following through on their threats, even though it has to cost them a pretty penny to move their operations.  I just wish more firearms related firms would leave their states that have passed anti-Second Amendment legislation.
