"Apparently Gov Hickenlooper has announced that he will sign HB 1224 on Wednesday. We were asked for our reaction, and here is what we said:

We have said all along that based on the legal problems and uncertainties in the bill, as well as general principle, we will have no choice but to leave if the Governor signs this into law. We will start our transition out of the state almost immediately, and we will prioritize moving magazine manufacturing operations first. We expect the first PMAGs to be made outside CO within 30 days of the signing, with the rest to follow in phases. We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected. We have made some initial contacts and evaluated a list of new potential locations for additional manufacturing and the new company headquarters, and we will begin talks with various state representatives in earnest if the Governor indeed signs this legislation. Although we are agile for a company of our size, it is still a significant footprint, and we will perform this move in a manner that is best for the company and our employees.

It is disappointing to us that money and a social agenda from outside the state have apparently penetrated the American West to control our legislature and Governor, but we feel confident that Colorado residents can still take the state back through recalls, ballot initiatives, and the 2014 election to undo these wrongs against responsible Citizens."

Good for them.
Wish they would come to TN but I doubt they will due to the massive workers comp bs that comes with it.

Good for them. Purchases 2 of their mags today simply to support them. And because you can't have too many mags of course.

Kudos to them. The only downside I see is the folks that can't just up and move to another state will now be out of a job.

And hopefully they will remember that when its time to vote.

Bought 5 mags and a UBR stock tonight. Piss on Colorado and the hippies that have taken that state over.

I agree. Guess I should have said those that didn't vote for the liberals . If they did they have nobody to blame but themselves.
