I might consider a move back to California, if the salary was good enough, even though I would lose my ability to carry concealed, unless I went out of state. But I wouldn't move to a state that didn't allow me to own the guns that I have (ok, my AR 15, AK 47, and perhaps even my Socom II aren't supposed to be in California, but then, I doubt that they'll have a reason to search my house). To answer you question more specifically, I might consider selling the most problematic ones, or, given the current political climate and the chance that I may not be able to buy replacements, I would consider a storage unit in here in Nevada to keep them until I could use them again.
The storage unit in a free, or freer, state, is an obvious solution. I have long advocated having a working battery of firearms stashed elsewhere, which is a different concept from caching weapons for political/legal reasons, but has the same effect. I have considered a safe deposit box in Atlanta, simply because I visit there frequently, and not having to put up with TSA, or worrying about lost checked baggage, would be worth it.
As it is, I have weapons stored in a secure site away from the house, in a nearby city, at a higher elevation, in a different steam's watershed; legal/political issues had nothing to do with it.
