Would you leave California when their new bill passes?

Here's an article i ran into. IF i were a CA resident, i'd leave in a heartbeat...

List of Proposed California Gun Control Measures -- 500 Round Max, No Grandfathering, No Detachable Mags, Mandatory License | The Truth About Guns

I'm curious on how the sigtalk CA members feel about this....

why do you think I never went back to CA? the navy was fully ready to move me from florida back to San Diego. I saw the way the liberlas were screwing up the best state in the nation evern back in 2000. i stayed in Fl, though in retrospect maybe i shoulda relocated to texas

I bailed on California 7 years ago after 30 years - the handwriting was on the wall even then.

Yep, it's official California has the dumbest law makers.
Just looked it up in the dictionary under "Over reaction" it says see California.

I bolted from The Peoples Republic of MA. years ago and I miss many things but, I also know I was watching the slow death of Freedom by a million cuts. Don't wait to long, it get's harder and harder to leave and the excuses come easier until it becomes impossible. It's very sad to say that but, a realization of fact.

Holy Crap! Those proposals are insane. How can they acknowledge guns for protecting homes and families yet outlaw hollow points? Sounds like a perfect recipe for all types black market activity and all the violence that'll go along with that just like drugs.

One thing I did notice was the video was edited, so who knows what was really said, and will be proposed. They need to show the entire news conference, and not edit it. What they showed didn't sound good, but who will this truely effect. When you edit, you change facts, or appear to change facts, and that's not good. If they are talking about getting the illegal firearms off the streets, and going after those who cannot legally own firearms, I'm for that. Going after legal firearms owners is another thing, and I'm sure there will be a major court battle over it.

IF, and its a big IF, that nonsense gets passed, I am lucky enough to live 60 miles from the AZ border that I can technically move there, and have a "crash pad" in my hometown. The reason I haven't done so already is that I have a 45 minute commute to/from work. I don't want to be in my car away from my family any longer than I have to. At this time, I cannot leave the job I am at without finding something in my field. And trust me, I am looking hard!

The reason for me leaving would not be this as a gun issue per se, but as a personal freedom issue. Kalifornia is on a downward spiral, both morally and financially...I will not go down with it.

Being from New Orleans and raised in the metro area, If you are a conservative, there is simply no reason at this point to be in California.

I went to College at UCSD San Diego and although SD is my Fav large city in California it too has become too Liberal. Had an opportunity and many job interviews in the Bay Area after Katrina, even had a girlfriend there, could have easily stayed, since i'm in the I.T. industry.

Although I have great memories from College and visually the state is very pretty.. I love the Desert. Middle and Upper middle class flight from California will ruin that state.

Hopefully Arizona can stay Red, it's one of my Fav States....

Nope.... New York State and Illinois are tied for that distinction. Legislators can propose all the crap legisation they want (usually just grandstanding for next election), getting it passed is another thing.

NY and Illinois have not just proposed but enacted such legislation. If Calif passes these proposals then yes it will join NY and Illinois IMHO....

I can see why you didn't look back. The area around Castle has never been nice.

I used to live in California. That state is trash. After I moved away from my family, I came up to Oregon. Never moving back to CA. Ever.

On that law, all I have to say is good luck trying to enforce that blatant violation of the US Constitution. It'll be overturned by the courts in a heartbeat.
