Wiretap: The shutdown is over, Magpul is still here

OK, one more day on the shutdown, and that’s all. We promise. Do check out the David Denby review of “12 Years a Slave.”

Speaking of which, Magpul, the Eerie, Colorado-based gun manufacturer that made repeat headlines during the spring gun-laws debate in Denver, is still doing its business in Eerie, despite showy proclamations on how it would relocate to one of the Old South states if any gun laws were passed. The gun laws were passed. The Daily Camera: “The company’s seeming inability to once and for all pull up stakes has gone from a point of curiosity among gun enthusiasts, who loudly backed the company’s decision half a year ago to move, to a source of annoyance that threatens to hurt Magpul’s reputation and business.” No one puts Magpul in a corner. Not even Magpul!
