Colorado gun owners get 1,500 free high-capacity magazines ahead of state ban

by  |  published on July 2, 2013

What do you do when your business is about to be threatened due the passage of a stringent new state-wide firearm law? If you’re one company from Colorado, apparently the answer is to unload your inventory.

A new law in Colorado officially banned the sale of high-capacity automatic weapon magazines starting this Monday, outlawing stores from selling clips that can hold more than 15-rounds at a time. That was about to leave Erie, Colorado’s Magpul Industries in a peculiar situation, but they made the most of it by giving away hundreds of soon-to-be-outlawed magazines during a weekend event in the town of Glendale.

On the eve of the law’s first day on the books, Magpul airlifted thousands of high-capacity magazines to Glendale’s “A Farewell to Arms” gun show and literally handed out around 1,500 clips to attendees only hours before the ban went into effect.

“You are in the Vatican of liberty, the Luxembourg of freedom,” Glendale Mayor Mike Dunfon told the crowd at a pro-gun rally that preceded the event, Matthew Patance wrote for the Denver Post.
