Gun friendly states?

Please don't get into politics (I'm just as disgusted as many of you). I don't want the moderators moving this thead to the RKBA forum.

I have been a shooter off and on my entire life for just over 50 years. I am in CT, and have for over 20 years told my wife I was not willing to move to MA or any other state where I am not allowed to carry (or it is extemely difficult to get a carry permit). She is not willing to move far away from MA (including ME NH or VT). So, depending on what happens in CT I might have to move by myself.

I am as disgusted by the AR15 bans, magazine limitations, etc that many of you are, but those alone will not force me to leave CT (even though I really don't like CT). I have lived in different countries, and have lived in different states. I am not wealthy. As a youth my family had money, and I was prep school educated. I have a degree. I generally, but not always, like hanging with "red necks" (or similar).

After the dust settles, if I can stay here I will. If I am not allowed to carry because of some stupid new law, then I will have to seriously examine leaving CT.

We don't know what is going to happen with many states, but based on what you know now what states are so gun friendly that bans etc are very unlikely?

Montana and Wyoming are absolutely gun friendly states. I would say Texas and Florida as well.

Colorado, well, lots of liberals here in the larger urban areas. Small towns are pretty cool, however. I am in Denver (city and county) and I did get my CWP, as it is a "shall issue" state. Although, you get in the same database as the bad guys, so when a cop runs your license-they know you have a permit.

At any rate, I hope things work out for you.

I lived in Colorado in 1975. Aurora, Englewood, Conifer, Ft. Collins, Greeley. (Late teens ... moved around a bit).

Back then there were too many east coasters and Californians for my taste. It must be pretty bad now.

Never got up to Wyoming, but always wanted to check it out.

I feel for ya. My brother is in MA and is seriously pissed about some new legislation.

Regarding states.. Just watch the news. Texas is a good bet. No offense but since you're from the NE maybe a mid Atlantic state would be good climate and geography wise. Just a thought. Obviously, pick a red state.

Hang tough.

I lived in the same areas around the same time but in 88 moved out when the liberal komifornians move in. Sold my house house to one and never looked back. My sister is there and when I visit I can barely stand it.

If you don't want to move very far, look into PA
