On July 1, Colorado's sweeping new gun control laws will go into effect, but ammo magazine manufacturer Magpul isn't going to let that day arrive without some protest.

This Saturday, June 29, the Erie, Colo.-based gun accessory maker will be giving away free 30-round magazines to the first 1,500 guests, who are at least 18-years-old, at the "Farewell to Arms Freedom Festival" at Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo. Magpul announced the giveaway on their Facebook page Wednesday:

Come on out and join the festivities at Infinity Park in Glendale, CO, this Saturday, June 29, celebrating FREEDOM on the last weekend before the unconstitutional mag ban takes effect, and get your last shot at purchasing PMAGs. We'll be there, and we've ponied up a LOT of PMAGs. First 1500 through the gate get a Boulder Airlift or Free CO PMAG FREE! Food, live music, and a helo-borne aerial delivery of PMAGs. Proceeds from mag sales go towards the legislative and legal fight for 2A rights in CO. Get tickets and pre-purchase PMAGs at: www.freecolorado.net.

The post had over 3,000 Likes and more than 1,000 shares as of Thursday.

Free Colorado, a non-profit gun rights group that is sponsoring the event in Glendale, says that it engages "in targeted actions to reverse Colorado laws that imperil the rights of law-abiding firearm owners; and ensuring that no other State passes such reckless government regulation."

A package of gun control measures, including one that limits ammo magazines to no more than 15 rounds, was signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper back in March.

Magpul vowed to leave the state after the gun-control legislation was signed into law and in April, for the first time in its history, began to manufacture its firearm accessories outside of Colorado.

Earlier in June, Magpul put the "Free Colorado" and "Boulder Airlift" limited-run high-capacity magazines for sale as part of an effort to raise money to fight gun control efforts here in Colorado and across the nation. The company announced that it sold out of the special run magazine in just hours.
