You may recall that Congressman Jeff Duncan invited a major firearms manufacturer in New York State to move their manufacturing facility to South Carolina, following tighter gun control laws in New York. There is now word that Remington is actually considering the idea.
Meanwhile, Jeff Duncan has now also invited a manufacturer from another state to consider moving to S.C. Magpul Industries Corp., located in Erie Colorado, has vowed to leave the state if lawmakers pass a bill banning high-capacity magazines. Magpul was founded in 1999, and has a diverse product line ranging from sights and grips, to magazines and iphone cases. Currently, the company employs around 200 workers in their facility and over 400 suppliers and contractors.
On Monday, the Colorado House of Representatives passed the anti-gun measure, prompting Magpul to warn legislators that passage of the bill would “harm the rights of law abiding citizens, and drive jobs out of the state while doing nothing to improve public safety.”
“South Carolina would welcome Magpul with open arms,” said Rep. Duncan. “In South Carolina, we believe in the Second Amendment. We believe in free enterprise. We believe in the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Our state welcomes any individual or business who believes the same.”
