Magpul Moving

I see that Magpul has finally announced their move.  From the press release, it looks like they're moving manufacturing to Montana, and corporate to Texas.
The company is relocating manufacturing, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne, Wyoming. Magpul is leasing a 58,000 square foot manufacturing and distribution facility during the construction of a 100,000 square foot build-to-suit facility in the Cheyenne Business Parkway. The Wyoming relocation is being completed with support from Governor Matt Mead, the Wyoming Business Council and Cheyenne LEADS.
Magpul is moving its corporate headquarters to Texas. Three North Central Texas sites are under final consideration, and the transition to the Texas headquarters will begin as soon as the facility is selected. The Texas relocation is being accomplished with support from Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Economic Development Corporation.
When Colorado passed the ban for standard magazines, it made Magpul's continued existence there problematic, in that they couldn't sell their product to the residents of the state where they were located.  I do notice that the Colorado that banned standard magazines is also the same Colorado that recently legalized recreational marijuana use.  Interesting juxtaposition, that.

Liberty according to liberals is freedom that is only convenient when it involves activities they agree with.

Pooping in your own rice bowl is generally a bad idea.

I guess Colorado will find that out the hard way.
