Colorado is a major battleground state on the subject of gun control. Vice President Joe Biden spent a part of this month in Aspen, pressuring state legislators to support the four controversial gun control measures that have passed the state House and are on their way to the Senate.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns has also hired lobbyists to operate within Colorado, putting this local debate on the national scale.
But there are national-scale groups fighting to help protect gun rights in Colorado as well, including the grass-roots Reddit-led Operation Mountain Standard.
Upon hearing the now-confirmed rumors that Magpul will flood Colorado with magazines before any legislation will be voted on, the redditors started their own campaign to round up magazines from around the country and ship them to Colorado, where they will be given away to people who make a donation to the state’s gun rights organization, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners.
