"We're not a political company. We don't play political games."
Oh, the horseshit is shoveled high...
Colorado's most vocal Boulder-based arms manufacturer, still reeling from Colorado's State House passing major gun control legislation, is trying to fight back on Facebook -- but not in a political way, no, really. They're not political.
We're hearing some rumors that the Gov and the Dem caucus think we are bluffing. Just to clarify for them, then...we're not a political company. We dont play political games. We've made our position very clear, very publicly. We would not survive lying to our customer base, nor would we ever consider it. If you pass this, we will leave, and you will own it. We've already got plans in place to get PMAG manufacturing moved rapidly, and the rest of the company will follow.
Of course, they're not a political company. So stop saying that!!
We will make sure to at least have a small remain-behind operation through the 2014 elections so that we can remind folks why we are gone.
They're looking to backup plans, should they have to get out of the arms business. Diversification is key... I know, how about military-looking iPhone cases! We're in Boulder, after all!!
Field Cases for the iPhone 5 are shipping this Friday! New material, new camera/flash port geometry, same look, made in the USA and only $12.95.
Not for nothing, but for a few bucks more, Amazon has it in pink! Of course, their recent knee-jerk sloganeering:
Join the fight to keep East Coast Money and West Coast Policies out of the American West!
Appears to have pissed off their customers on, well, the East and West Coasts. Hope they don't have iPhones there.
Hey folks...when we referred to "East Coast money" in our previous post, we were referring to the Bloomberg money that is attempting to buy away our freedoms here. The idea that the Mayor of NYC has any business financing CO politics is ludicrous to us, but it's happening. No offense meant to our East Coast customers.....
Also, apparently their products weren't really designed in Colorado. This is their current FB background.
But remember, it's still all about freedoms!!11!
We're still in this to save our freedoms, and with your help, we're seeing progress.
And any similarity between this:
...Is purely coincidental.
Or, perhaps, they were alluding to this:
...Which would suggest they're going to finally allow their workers to organize?
Or, perhaps, they're going to start buying giant American trucks, built with real American Manufacturing, to park at the state capitol during negotiations, instead of this German-built Unimog?
And that's why, this Friday, Magpul gets our mug! At least, as soon as we find a US-based, labor-friendly company to manufacture it.

2. They'll have to find another right-to-work state.
Somewhere they can require employees to submit to random drug testing at will: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:BqtvocQ5DzwJ:creativepro.coroflot.com/public/job_details.asp%3Fjob_id%3D43894+magpul+website+design&cd=9&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

4. They would never survive if they lied to their customers?
How ironically sad; if not for FUD, gun sales wouldn't be at an all time high. The entire industry lives off of fear. Funny, they just might be experiencing what the industry bombards their clients with 24/7.
