whats states are actually pro 2 admendment and are acting to protect the rights for us. Or those of such states.
Is this the start of another dividing union?

I have pasted a link to the map section of opencarry.org, which will tell you essentially everything that you need to know about regional friendliness to armed citizens.

As far as the divide is concerned, some groups in the US have increasingly irreconcilable differences, so anything is possible.

As a person who has seen what a country looks like after a civil war, (Somalia) I wouldn't hasten the day. I think that overall public opinion is in the favor of gun owners these days. When I was a kid there were hardly any black rifles, and concealed carry was illegal in many otherwise gun friendly states.

Mississippi is. My rep sent this letter to me in response to my urgent pre-Christmas email and phone call:

Friends,

I have heard from many of you regarding the gun control proposals the Obama administration is pushing.

As an American and citizen soldier, I am a tireless supporter of Second Amendment rights and the protection for individuals to keep and bear arms. The requests the president made of Congress today fly in the face of those rights, and demonstrate an increasingly reckless disregard for the Constitution and congressional authority.

I will not support such measures.

I also applaud Governor Bryant and the state legislature for taking actions to protect the rights of Mississippians at the state level.

In the past I have supported countless measures defending your constitutional right to keep and bear arms, and I will continue to do so.

In your service,

cid:[email protected]

We let 'em split us that way, we'll lose. Second Amendment covers the whole country. Right now some States and shooters who live there are getting screwed by their own political lizards.

There is a bill to be passed soon here in Alaska that makes it a misdemeanor for any official that tries to enforce Obamas 23 gun Executive Actions.

Should have been a felony. Wyoming was first and I hear Texas is about to pass a similar bill.

Currently Washington State is still pro 2a, but Western Washington has a growing population of PC libral democrats that are out numbering the conservatives and republicans.

Prior to Clinton becoming president Washington was very pro 2a and always voted republican. Afterwards it shifted to Blue and has been going downhill since.

Now with all the liberals gaining power in Seattle and Olympia the new bread of politicians want to change things and are slowly pointing to gun control behind closed doors, Well Seattle is actually saying this out right now. This surprises me since Wa State and Seattle has a very low violent crime rate compared to other states and cities. So why would they want to change something that isn't broken?

Unfortunately I believe it is a matter of time before things go the way of NY and California. Hopefully not. But with the metro area growing and everything is becoming more and more PC and liberal I had already been thinking Montana or Alaska as a place to go.

And traffic really sucks here now along with inflation on property, housing and education.

The Deep South, Midwest and Mountain West are Pro 2A. Where you find rednecks and Conservatives. That's the promise land.

Exclude Illinois and Colorado perhaps. Include Arizona and NM.

Pro 2 A is a good start

But as 66FB posted - 'things change' !

Looking 'long term' need a real culture and law that dovetails with Pro 2a and a couple of those variables is...

Right to Work

http://www.nrtw.org/rtws.htm

and possibly No Income Tax

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/State_income_tax

Again things will change in any state - sounds like Louisiana and possibly Nebraska are looking at eliminating income taxes at this time.

Most states' constitution have text to the effect of "for defense of themselves and the state"

I am partial to Maine's
“Every citizen has a right to keep and bear arms and this right shall never be questioned.”

VA and VT are okay at spelling out the original framers' intent for the 2A:

“That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.”

“That the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to and governed by the civil power.”

What is the mood like in Georgia?

I was pining for Tn but the old lady wants to be near her mother and that is the metro ATL area.

I see GA is pretty leaniant about guns in general but wondering if anyone there thinks that has the chance to change at the state level? I know anything can happen Fed wise.

GA is golden in terms of 2A support.

I wouldn't move to the ATL metro area if you can manage. Traffic sucks. ATL is like brother heaven. Dude...go to TN. I have never been happier in my life then when living in Nashville. Incredible....beautiful parks (Percy and Edwin Warner), gorgeous women, superb people, cool vibe, excellent music scene, NFL and NHL teams, cost of living is rather low for urban area, and on and on and on. Middle TN is fantastic. Did I say gorgeous women...I know you're married but you can still look around with the right shades :)

North Dakota, went red at last election by 58% to 31%, it is a right to work state, no unions, lowest unemployment in the nation, under 3% and is very pro-gun/2A.
Introduced a bill yesterday, conceal carry permit holders can now carry on school property, religious establishments and sporting events! Also a bill is being introduced that is similar to wy and tx, nd law enforcement will not enforce any federal law restricting 2nd amendment.

The states with the lowest crime rates are the most pro 2A.
coincidence?
That got me thinking. I pulled the crime stats for Florida and found that in the year 2011 we had 985 murders. Chicago had 433 murders in 2011, and more than 500 last year. We're talking about a state of 20 million people compared to a city of 2.7 million. A city with 1/10 the population should have 1/10 of the murders, but in this case it is almost 1/2.

IIRC, there are also some pretty interesting stats on FL crime targeting tourists when they enacted reciprocity CCW.

Come to Spokane and bring the flag with ya brother! Realstate here is fine, politics moderate to conservative. I-5 has been an incursion route. The Cascades Mts a nice obstacle!

I had my heart set on the Nashville until recently when my wife, who is on board with moving south, informed me she wants to be no more than 1 hour driving from roughly the Acworth, GA area.

Unfortunatly the Chattanooga area looks pretty expensive so if Nashville is out I might as well bend over and accept the area where her mother & aunt will be. Somewhere on 75 north of Acworth is the goal. Unless things change.

We want some land, not just to move from one cramped neighborhood in NY to a cramped neighborhood in GA.
