It's still lost jobs, but the bigger problem for Colorado will be the lost income.As for those 200, I'm sure their families feel much better now that this law is passed, and they wouldn't mind, at all that you don't consider their jobs important.

Magpul is 200 jobs plus those employed elsewhere who are somewhere in the supply chain. This doesn't take into account the push to boycott CO for both hunting and fishing, or the talk of hunting and fishing shows encouraging their viewers to go elsewhere.
