The gun accessories maker Magpul Industries Corp. is giving out 1,500 empty 20- and 30-round magazines at a “Farewell to Arms” festival to mark the company’s departure from Colorado, in protest of the state’s recent legislative clampdown on Second Amendment freedoms.
Colorado recently passed new bans on magazines and expanded background checks on gun buyers. Magpul, a magazines and gun-accessory company located in Colorado, said the new laws will kill its business and in March, announced intent to move shop.
As a farewell of sorts, the company is holding a festival this Saturday — and as part of the event, will give away free magazines to the first 1,500 attendees who are over the age of 18, The Blaze reported.
