AUSTIN (KXAN) – Firearm accessories manufacturer Magpul Industries announced on Thursday it’s relocating its corporate headquarters from Colorado to Texas.
Gov. Perry released a statement on Thursday that said he was “proud” Magpul would soon call Texas home. Perry has reached out to more than 30 firearm manufacturers in states across the country, he said reaching out to companies that make weapons and weapons parts in the aftermath of mass shootings is part of Texas’ strategy to bring in more jobs.
Magpul said Texas’ predictable regulations and consistent respect for the Second Amendment were key elements to its relocation.
