    I know we want to clap and cheer about the gun companies that move from these states, and I applaud their decisions, but realistically they're only the tiniest fraction of tax revenue and jobs in the big picture.

    I almost find it comical when people talk about Magpul leaving Colorado as if the politicians will be looking at empty coffers wondering thinking back and lamenting their mistake. When you look at the overall picture none of these players are really big enough for them to care.

    I sincerely hope that the law enforcement and every govt agency is also complying with the states laws. Magazine limits, gun types/evil features, all of it. :fire:

    The city voters should not have the power to impose their laws on the rural population.A case can be made for separate juristictions.

    The entire country has to deal with it. If it weren't for California and New York we'd never have to worry about anti-gun laws coming to pass at the Federal level.

    If NY can run every FFL and every firearms related business out of the state, not only will the politicos there not care, they will tout it as a great victory IMHO...

    NY City for certain, but nearly all of NY state outside the NY City metro area is very pro-2A. The situation is bad, but not for lack of trying by any means. We simply lack the numbers needed to get pro 2A politicians elected. The typical out of state response is "well just try harder". Maybe you are familiar with the numbers in NY, maybe not, but for the sake of the thread I am going to throw some numbers out there so you can see what we are up against.

    Your profile shows you in OK. The OK City metro area is the largest population center in your state, with about 1.3 million residents in about 6300 square miles. Bronx county in NY has nearly 1.4 million residents - in 57 square miles. There are five counties that make up NY City, and Bronx County is the second smallest in population. The NY city area is probably about 11 million people, with the other areas running about 8 million or so. Estimated number of gun owners in NY (almost all of who are outside NYC) run up to 4 million people, which is slightly larger than the entire population of Oklahoma.

    After the law was passed here in NY, we had about 10,000 people show up on a winter weekday to protest. To residents of other states that like to complain about NY state and 2A support, how do the numbers look at 2A rallies in your state?

    Absolutely! They will tout it as the new way to win when the courts won't agree with them. The object is to win at any cost. Google "Soviet style negotiation tactics" or Saul Alinsky for how they operate
