Re: Moving out

NJgunowner makes a very good point. It's easy for those of us in the Patron States of Shootin' Stuff to say, "just move." Realistically, though, our gun-owning friends in CA, NY, NJ, IL, etc., have friends, family, businesses and jobs. Many of them can't "just move."

What's more is that we, the gun-owning community, need for them to stay. Why? Because we need registered, gun-owning voters in those jurisdictions. If I ever want to have a hope of carrying a concealed firearm in (for example) CA, I need CA voters to get out and put folks in office who will change the law for me. If all the legal gun owners move out of one of those states, I will never be able to carry there, should I have to go on business.
A gunfight is not the time to learn new skills.

If you ever have a real need for more than a couple of magazines, your problem is not a shortage of magazines. It's a shortage of people on your side of the argument. -- Art Eatman
