I pretty much have to stay here and just deal with the commie hordes from up north, and the 3rd world hordes from El Sud.

Retired, fixed income, house paid for, no debt (except the RV).

I will always have some kinds of firearms to protect myself and my family, no matter what the gummit "allows" us peasants .

Used to dislike the hot weather here, but now I need it to be hot so I can move around!
Anything below 60 and my joints just aren’t flexible.
So Montana and Idaho are no longer options. I would become mummified.

I need Zerk fittings installed on all my joints……

Just occurred to me that I will NEVER escape the hordes here.
When my urn in installed in the columbaria @ the VA cemetery in Mims, some uninsured, 3rd world drunk will run into it.
My urn will hit him in the head, causing Alan Grayson to sue my estate….

I still do not trust Scott...waiting for him to change parties like Christ.
My ultraliberal niece is in Austin. She is a ADA for the county. Last month she was informed that she had to take a CCW class, with live firing. She is mortified. Ha ha.
Let us know how that (her training) goes.... and, especially, if she "converts...." [smilie=011.gif]

I agree. I don't think any place is "safe" anymore, and I'd rather stay and fight for FL, having left NJ for the "freedoms..." I just didn't count on countless other NJ'ians coming along to screw it up... FL is worth fighting for... I'll stay and fight. That, and the cave diving!

I think it'll end up being a vote of confidence against gun-control. There are too many supporters of gun rights here in Florida to simply let this happen. I don't think it'll go anywhere.
I was part of the SOLUTION, were YOU?

I think some of you live in an area with skewed demographics (as do I). It could be a close call, especially in a 2020 election that could have a huge turnout. Also it really depends if the gun grabbers focus on "assault rifles" or try to overreach further. And, of course, there are the unknowns. For example, if some wacko shoots up a kindergarten with an AR a week before the vote, that would be bad (beyond the obvious bad). Between FTL airport, Pulse and MSJ, we have had our share here.

Skewed demographics - now that is funny some funny [smilie=042.gif] . I'll have to use that phrase! I am surrounded by Crime Hills here in Mosquito County and I am surrounded by them Skewed Demographics. I got to be on the watch for their armed home invasions. Wife won't move. Maybe she will be eager to move once once they kick in the door. Granted, I might not be greeting them with an AR if this [smilie=042.gif] goes through But prefer my Saga "Commie" Shotgun with the 20 round drum anyway for close up meet and greets with them skewed demographics. It is the right tool for this skewed demographics application.

Skewed demographics goes both ways. Some members here live in areas that are largely gun friendly. Others of us live in areas that are largely commie friendly. It is easy to get a distorted view just from your immediate area. But this state, and issues like guns, are up for grabs (pun intended).
