    I'm from Illinois but ready to move. How's Victoria, TX? I heard there's a Caterpillar facility opening up there. Maybe my wife could get a transfer. Waco is another option. I can get a job anywhere there's a hospital.

    JFtheGR8.... Most anywhere will be better than Illinois. Waco will be slightly more urban that Victoria, but both are enjoyable.

    Waco is also a college town (Baylor University), and that can be a good or a bad to different people.

    If you are an outdoors type of guy, you would probably like Victoria and the area around it more. Waco is pretty close to the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.

    They really are two pretty different places. Waco is closer to the D/FW metroplex (and there are more hospitals there).

    I just moved to AK but my contract will be up in the summer. I am giving Texas a good hard look and would move in a heartbeat if I could find work there (although I'd just as easily stay in AK... very gun friendly state). But I also had the luck of having spent most of my life in gun-friendly PA, in the "Red" section of the state where no one bats an eye at someone carrying a rifle to his or her car.

    If you like a rural lifestyle and the ocean then Victoria is for you. If you prefer a more progressive town then go to Waco.

    Y'all consider coming to Oklahoma also.

    Some of the nation's lowest unemployment rates.

    Also very gun friendly.

    Pls dont move to Texas. We are getting all crowded in here. We got lots of illegals coming in from the border and now a surge of Northerners and N Easterners looming in the horizon.
    Its hot in here so pls dont come . You might choose the midwest where the cold winters will suit your bodies fine. Thank you brothers in arms.

    I will gladly sign a paper stating that nobody in my new Free State home shall ever hear the words "How we do it in California" pass my lips! :D

    Yup. Saw that in CO with the influx of CA types (greenies) and those d**n Yankees in TX as my mom was so fond of calling them.

    I miss TX. If it wasn't so darn hot and had mountains, I'd move back in a heartbeat.

    No need to go too far, Missouri has lots of open manufacturing palces after the Big Three decided that Mexico was cheaper than the US to make our cars and trucks.

    Please NY gun owners, if you support the 2A unconditionally, please come to the Pacific Northwest.

    Many people do not realize that people leaving their states because of loss of gun rights, will be the most vigilant and proactive members for the RKBA of their state.

    Considering New York is a lost cause anyway, just imagine how these fleeing refugees from New York would increase the number of gun owners in your own state. They would move to states where gun rights are still respected and where they would be not only be welcomed, but appreciated.

    Sorry if I sound to be a pessimist with New York's futures, but I think it's time to call a spade a spade. New York is finished! To quote Rick Grimes of the Walking Dead, but with a slight modification , "New York Has Fallen to the zombies".

    All New York gun owners are very much needed in other states that respect their constitutional rights. So, please it is only for the best of your country to leave New York. If other states can protect their rights and overcome this legislation, New York one day may have its rights restored.

    I personally think most New Yorker gun owners would feel at home in Washington and Oregon. We have all that New York has scenery wise and more. Giant mountains and trees, ocean, lakes, rivers and a lot of open range when you cross the Cascades! What other two states (excluding California) can you have rain forest, high desert, prarie, canyons and alpine all within one days drive? Washington and Oregon. A New Yorker use to the trees, mountains , water would feel a bit homesick in Texas. Even though Texas is grand state, I grew up in the forest and mountains, it would just be sad to lose that.

    Born and raised in NYC and having spent considerable time on the west coast during a long career guess which two places I never want to return to or live. Ohio is OK for now I guess. However, I really do like Texas and Arizona.
