GunsSaveLife.com (yes, we are different websites with different goals, hopefully no confusion), has released a piece stating that Magpul, one of the nation’s largest AR15 magazine and parts makers, will continue to sell their products to law enforcement in states where those same products are banned for civilian ownership.
Almost 100 companies have come out and said they will not sell their products to law enforcement in states where civilians are prohibited from owning those products.
According to a post on AR15.com, a Magpul sales manager says, “Our founder has also said regarding LEO restrictions, “We have not considered such a move as we are not convinced that this tactic will have any effect on those in power (they will just buy Israeli or some other generic parts). It also adversely punishes street cops, local sheriffs and individual military members for the actions of those in power. The last thing we want to do is hurt those who support our cause.”
Magpul even goes as far as to have a special part of their website for law enforcement only where up to 10 of the highly coveted PMags can be bought by any law enforcement officer in any states, with expedited shipping (Magpul is backordered several weeks if not months for civilian orders).
Magpul made headlines in a positive way recently when they stated they would leave Colorado if the state passed a proposed magazine capacity law. It looks like that law currently has a chance at passing and Magpul is supposedly already making plans to leave the state.
Given Magpul’s somewhat conflicting stances (leaving CO, but continuing to sell to law enforcement in anti gun states) will you continue to support them?
