Magpul Industries announced a mega-deal to supply ammunition magazines to the Marines last week, a boon for Cheyenne and a loss for Colorado.
Magpul, one of the country's largest producers of ammunition magazines and other accessories, left Colorado in protest of the state's 2013 gun laws that limited the size of magazines to 15 rounds.
In 2013, when Democrats controlled the state House, Senate and governor's office, Colorado passed a 15-round limit as a measure to curb mass shootings, particularly in the wake of the 2012 Aurora theater assault that left 12 people dead and more than 70 wounded. Among James Holmes' weapons was a semi-automatic rifle with a 100-round drum magazine.
The political and legal fallout came swiftly.
