Sticking It To The Man: Gun Maker Gives Away Free 30 Round Mags Ahead Of Colorado Ban

July 1, 2013 by  

Before a number of highly restrictive gun laws take effect in Colorado, gun rights advocates in the State organized a Farewell to Arms festival last weekend in protest of the measures.

A crowd of nearly 5,000 people gathered at the town of Glendale’s Infinity Park on Saturday afternoon in a last-minute protest against a new Colorado law banning the sale of magazines of more than 15 rounds.

“You are in the Vatican of liberty, the Luxembourg of freedom,” Glendale Mayor Mike Dunfon told the crowd at the beginning of the rally, according the Denver Post.

One of the highlights of the event was a giveaway of 30-round magazines courtesy of Magpul  Industries, a Colorado based firearm company that will be leaving the State because of the new laws.

From the Denver Post:

Hours before the event began, people formed a line over a half- mile long outside the park. The first 1,500 who were at least 18 years old were handed tickets they could redeem for a free 30-round magazine, courtesy of Magpul Industries.

Magpul donated a total of 20,000 magazines for the event, which featured live music, speakers and food. All the free magazines arrived, with great fanfare, via helicopter. The rest were sold at a discounted price of $10, with all of the proceeds going to the group’s recall efforts against state Senate President John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron, both Democrats.

Magpul isn’t the only gun-related company sending a message to lawmakers who are less than friendly to the 2nd Amendment. Beretta USA announced last week that they will not expand operations into West Virginia, despite aggressive lobbying from State officials, because they say Senator Joe Manchin’s push to expand background checks makes the State less stable for their business.
