Company makes good on leaving Colo. over gun laws

Posted:
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - One of the country's largest producers of gun magazines is leaving Colorado and moving operations to Wyoming and Texas because of new gun laws.
  
Erie, Colo.-based Magpul Industries announced Thursday that it was moving its production, distribution and shipping operations to Cheyenne and its headquarters to Texas, making good on a vow it made to leave Colorado during last year's heated gun control debate.
  
The company says its corporate headquarters will likely be in north-central Texas but an exact location hasn't been determined yet.
  
The Democratic-led Colorado Legislature and Gov. John Hickenlooper last year enacted a new law prohibiting the sale of gun magazines with more than 15 rounds. That and other new gun restrictions also led to the recall ouster of two Democratic state senators.
