    Criteria for where to move

    (keep in mind my husband doesn't carry, he's not anti gun - he has a couple - they just stay very comfortable in the safe unless he's going to the range. I, on the other hand, always carry...)

    So my husband's company has tried to offer him positions in different states over the last couple years.

    California has come up several times and my response is always "No! Their gun laws are awful! It's too far from family. Their gun laws are awful! The cost of living is bad! Their gun laws are awful!"

    NY also came up - pretty much the same response... (plus you do know it snows there...)

    Now his company will soon be selling their properties in central FL. So if he stays with the company we will HAVE to move. He's been paying more attention to positions coming available within the company as well as looking at other companies. We want to stay here, but that may not be an option. So anyway, he interviewed with a company yesterday that today expressed a lot of interest in him - but the position is in GA. Also today, he heard of a probable opening within his company, but at their home base...in Chicago... So he comes home today and starts talking to me about those two possibilities. My response was...

    "GA gun laws I'm OK with.... DO YOU KNOW WHAT CHICAGO'S GUN LAWS ARE LIKE?!"

    Lol - he's not completely amused with my line of thinking...

    Personally, and I'm not joking at all, I'd find another job before I'd move to Chicago, NY or California.

    1 State comes to mind, MONTANA! Plenty of space, Brady Score of 2. Even has a law that states guns manufactured in Montana, and stay's in Montana do not fall under laws. That was signed by a DEMOCRATIC governor.
    "Gun Free Zones" is where only criminals carry guns.

    Here's the way I look at it, and I'm sure that my comments will draw opposing views. Your chances of ever being involved in an incident that calls for the use of firearms is slim, mighty slim, indeed. Your chances of making a decision that could impact your finances for the rest of your life are huge. Only you can decide what is best for you.

    I'm currently in the process of selling most of my larger stuff (desks, etc.) so I can move to Arizona. My criteria are: Good gun laws, mountains and warm weather. Arizona has all 3, and I have friends/family there, so it's where I decided I'm moving.

    I can second Oregon, but it seems you really can't go wrong with TX, MT, or AZ.

    Go purchase a copy of the Places Rated Almanac. That can help you decide too. David Savageau's Places Rated Home Page | Places Rated It's a great resource.

    I jsut saw what ur talkign about and to think that almost everyone of these staes on this list has the strictest gun laws in the nation. no wonder they're the suposed top cities to live in. oh but that's right they have the highest crime rate also I'm betting between any other city/state they might even talk about too.

    Yes, TX, ID, OK, MT, WY, MO, KY, and AK (lived there for 7 yrs...it's just sooooooo far away)

    For some additional 'at your finger tips' info, get the App "Legal Heat" for an i-Phone.
    It's pretty useful and updates each state as you download any info.

    Use of the book requires understanding the criteria they use, and adjusting accordingly. SF was tops for some years, even when housing was unaffordable but for trust fund babies.

    It's all in the details.

    What it does do is provide a huge wealth of info in a concise format comparable across all of the places rated.
