    I wouldn't actually only base my criteria on gun laws - our ultimate hope is he'll find something here in FL. Both our parents are here, that's big, especially considering my parents are the only ones who have ever kept the kids overnight - even for a few days sometimes. Add to that his dad is ithe early stages of dementia and we're close enough to help his mom, that's a factor too. Even if we were in a reasonable driving distance, it'd be OK - but to go too far wouldn't be preferred. (I do have a sister in TX at least) We also have a home that's way upside down so that complicates things. I wouldn't be lying though if I said I really really don't want to live somewhere where my rights are heavily restricted. We'll go where we need to for what's best for our family and his career - still, the look he gives me when my first response about this place or that is what their gun laws is, really is a lot of fun!

    Believe it or not Detroit might be an acceptable option if you can stand the cold. We are a shall issue state, have the Castle Doctrine, and plenty of targets. Oh wait, I suppose that was in poor taste...

    Let him go ahead and move to Chicago. After he's thrown in jail for trying to get to the range, he'll come back home.

    According to the NRA Minot, ND has more guns than Chicago, but the winters are a tad cooler than Florida.

    You didn't say where in GA, but most businesses are located around Atlanta. A quick (?) drive thru there is enough to convince me not to live there, the traffic is awful. I lived in central GA for 6 years (Warner Robins) and liked it very much. I think GA is a little tax heavy (incometax, property tax, advalorumtax, etc.) compared to FL.

    Western states are too dry for me, causing nosebleeds literally. Even eastern WA affected my sinuses eventually.

    Hopefully someting works out to your satisfaction.

    Re: Criteria for where to move

    Don't come to NY. Doesn't matter if its upstate where I am or down state. A bunch of us are now looking to get out of this cesspool of a state.

    We just can't decide where to go. :(

    I would try to find something closer to your family. I lived 1,000 miles away from mine when they needed me the most. When they are gone,
    they are gone. Jobs can always be found.....parents.....not so much.

    I understand completely.Living in Florida for weather wise is tough to beat. Hopefully its a raise in pay rather than a lateral move to another location

    However, I would HIGHLY suggest to AVOID Multnomah County (where Portland is located). The rest of the state is a bit more reasonable. I'd move out of this county if I could.

    I would live closer to family if I could. We're 350 miles from my parents and 1800 miles from my in-laws
