Don’t forget Colorado banned large capacity magazines, a law which takes effect Monday, July 1st. Since then, big Colorado business Magpul has made plans to leave the state and they’ve been working actively to make sure Coloradans get their magazines before the deadline. The law ‘allows’ those who got their magazines before the ban, to keep them.
So on Saturday, June 29 from 4-8pm local time, Magpul is sponsoring the “Freewell To Arms Freedom Festival,” where they will give away 1500 mags to the first people through the gate. There’s more good news though: if you’re not lucky enough to get a free one, you can purchase a mag and all the proceeds to go support the legal efforts to overturn this outrageous law. Be there if you can! Sounds like it’ll be a great.
As a final protest of Colorado’s new high-capacity magazine ban going into effect on Monday, Magpul Industries is giving away 1,500 30-round magazines on Saturday during an event the company calls “Farewell to Arms.”
They will be given away on a first-come first-served basis at Infinity Park in Glendale, near Denver.
The magazine ban is one of several new gun-control laws going into effect July 1, including universal background checks for all firearms transfers, requirements for gun buyers to pay for those checks, and other measures.
The magazine ban, however, is the most contentious. It has led gun parts manufacturers like Magpul to move out of Colorado — a process that the company says has been underway for several weeks. It has not yet announced where it will relocate, but has hinted on its Facebook page that it may operate from several locations.
Magpul employs about 200 people and says that it contributes as much as $85 million to Colorado’s economy…
The Magpul PMAG magazines will be given away during a Freedom Festival, where they will be delivered by helicopter, according to a press release posted on the company’s Facebook page.
Magazines will be available for purchase after the first 1,500 are given away, with proceeds given to legal efforts to overturn the law that’s being spearheaded by a consortium of 55 elected Colorado sheriffs.
The event takes place from 4-8 p.m.
