If your state passed new terrible gun laws, would you move or stay and fight?

    Here in NM and even in my hometown of Santa Fe there have been gun control bills proposed.

    If something did get passed I would quit my job, pack my bags and either move back to Arizona or maybe give Texas a try.

    I have not and will not live in a State that has gun control laws that I find too strict.

    Move. And Texas is not that gun friendly or business friendly. Wyoming is the most free state in the Union Utah is #2.

    Been thru 4 houses & 2 cities----too old to ever move again.
    I would stay & fight
    Got out of the first city because of guns not gun laws.
    Hope the Feds do not pass any really stupid gun laws

    No, Texas isn't as wild west free as Wyoming or Utah. I'm always telling people this isn't a libertarian Western state it's more of a law and order state where the laws favor us decent people.

    I'm planning on getting out of Austin. I've enjoyed living here but it's time to go. Either will be moving outside of town to a "red" county or to a smaller city in Texas or another free state.

    I have contemplated this several times lately because I might soon see close friends move out of Pennsylvania to somewhere in the south or west...they seem to feel that things will get bad due to crappy influences in Philly and Pittsburgh; basically what I told them is that I am plain ole stuck! my mortgage is less than 3 years old, I've lost equity, I'm up to my eyeballs in debt (mortgage, car loan, motorcycle loan, credit cards, etc) due to stupid money mismanagement...

    I think my exact statement to one of them was "I'm simply stuck...financially a wreck! I'm either gonna go down fighting or do make the best of an absolutley s*&tty situation!"

    I would leave. No reason to patronize or support any aspect of a state that hates freedom.

    Stay and fight. Why would I want to turn tail and run just because ignorant politicians pushed through some laws I do not agree with? I do not have the luxury of piles of money with which to support my family while I look for work.

    I am here. I will fight.

    If Alabama were to become a gun restrictive state,then all is lost.

    I would stay and fight until the laws passed, then through the next election. If things didn't change, I would leave pretty much immediately. In my case, I could easily move across the river since I have always lived in border cities.

    Wise words. It's a good thing the Founding Fathers did not pull up stakes and head west, north, south or east when the British starting putting the screws to them. Oh wait, they did not have that choice. The French had the west and the north, the Native Americans and Spanish had much of the south and the east was..... well, a bunch of water.

    I would fight, but if we lost, If it were something like NY and CO is contemplating.... I think I would move. I worry about Ohio. We get more Blue with every election. Farming and Rural life get rolled up into growing Cities (I've done it too) and the culture changes (I'm hanging on).

    The problem with Texas is that it seems like 75% of the population thinks there's enough room in Texas if things get bad. LOL

    Yep! There's plenty of room alright, but not too many Yankees or city folks would make it very long in the Chihuahuan Desert. Neither would I for that matter, and I'm a country boy.

    There's plenty of room in West Texas. Just remember to bring your own water though.
