Should you New Yorkers decide to stay & fight, my advice is find the group that will challenge your nonsensical laws in court and DONATE some of your hard earned dollars to their cause.
Since your state (Cuomo, et. al) wants to be so progressive, I would also suggest you fight his fire with fire. Contact the ACLU (should be in your phonebook), explain to them the unconstitutionality of the recently passed law, and ask them to bring suit as you don't have Bloomberg/Cuomo deep pockets to do it on your own.
If all else fails, Missouri has great hunting and fishing, low taxes, and pretty good weather
If you don't like the weather today, wait till tomorrow, we guarantee is to be different
