So many states are rushing to pass any and all restrictions on firearms that they can while the memories of the Sandy Hook shootings stay fresh in the public’s minds. But there are going to be consequences to the Democrats actions on this matter that is so important to freedom loving people around this country.

It was following public hearings on a series of gun-control bills last month that Michael Bane, executive producer for the Outdoor Channel, sent an email to Republican state Sen. Steve King saying that after seeking the advice of legal counsel, his company was pulling all production out of Colorado.
“This morning I met with my three producers, and we made the decision that if these anti-gun bills become law, we will be moving all of our production OUT of Colorado,” the email said. “We have already canceled a scheduled filming session for late this month.”
He explained his commitment to the Second Amendment and noted his legal advisers were alarmed by the state’s actions.
“Obviously, part of this is due to our own commitment to the right to keep and bear arms, but it also reflects three lawyers’ opinions that these laws are so poorly drafted and so designed to trap otherwise legal citizens into a crime (one of our attorneys referred to them as ‘flypaper laws’) that it is simply too dangerous for us to film here,” he wrote.
“I can give you chapter and verse on the legal implications if you need, but suffice to say that the first legal opinion was so scary we went out and got two others. All three attorneys agreed.”
Among the measures signed into law are requirements for universal background checks for gun transfers and a ban on magazines that hold more than 15 rounds. Additionally, residents now wishing to exercise their Second Amendment right must pay a fee. The laws are among the toughest in the nation passed since the Sandy Hook massacre in December.
While the loss of tax revenue is expected to cost the state only $500,000 in 2013, Colorado can expect to lose even more revenue from other businesses who no longer will be doing business in the state as long as the restrictive gun control laws remain on the books.
WND previously reported management of the Boulder-based Magpul Industries warned Democrats the company would be closing its plant and moving out of the state if the laws, including the ban on all magazines capable of either holding or being modified to hold more than 15 rounds, were passed.
The company is in the process of following through on its promise to relocate and take several hundred jobs out of the state.
After Magpul’s announcement, Fort Collins-based HiViz Shooting systems announced it, too, would be moving to another state that respects the Second Amendment.
