    emailed ALL of the Rep. Congressmen in Arkansas, about this very thing today. Already got a reply from one.."We have a bill in the works to do just that right now." Was his reply. Hopefully Arkansas fall in line. "Arkleg HB 1012" got some more replies.

    Today's NY legislation is helping me ramp up plans for a move. We were already looking to move once both kids were away to college in two years, now we may be leaving sooner. My wife wants outta here in the worst way. I love to hear states taking measures to protect the rights of their citizenry. No idea how that may play out in the face of federal mandates, but I applaud the effort.

    Taxes are crushing here (I pay 16k / year in property taxes alone) and freedoms are dwindling. Politics aside, I'd much rather live where my pension is worth more.

    Ouch on the taxes thing. I think we paid a little over $6k here but most of that is for a bit of property with no dwelling built on it. Costs more to own land that isn't in use.

    I've posted something similar in other threads...

    If your elected officials are not representing you and your State the way you would like them to represent you in regards to the 2nd amendment, now is the time to move to an area of the country which has a history of supporting the 2nd amendment and currently has elected officials in place who will support and defend the 2nd amendment.

    When you move, bring guns and ammo.

    When you get here, buy more guns and ammo.

    Hopefully ours will join the list. It was brought up last year and was "very" close..... but didn't pass in the Senate (loaded with 'moderate' RINO's). And, during the 2008 elections, a lot of more 'conservative' Republicans' were voted in to replace .... and most of RINO - moderate Republicans were replaced, so it would likely pass at this point. Some years ago, 88% of the citizens voted FOR adding a Constitutional amendment protecting gun ownership in the State.... that should have told them something.

    This sends a pretty strong message from at least two states.

    TN has a bill in also but near as good as WY or TX.

    Correction, ONE sign carries weight, and it has to be EXACT in its wording, size, language, and grammar.


    Didn't FL just pass a law allowing suits against municipalities that have/enforce local ordinances? Yes.
    Texas already has pre-emption... those laws can never be made, let alone enforced.

    Possibly one more to the list. Hopefully Missouri can get it done also. Does anyone know how to find out when they are going to vote on this? They expect Bi-partisan support...

    Florida did pass such a law and forced the repeal of any and all locally approved gun laws that were beyond state statutes. A violation of this law by an elected official would be grounds for removal from office and a fine up to $5K.

    I searched last night and couldn't find anything on Tennessee. Do you have a link?

    preemption is not what we are talking about here. That is saying the state trumps the county or city. WHat TX and WY are doing is saying "Our law comes first and we won't listen to the feds on this issue". We all know that federal law can sometimes trump state law depending on the legal terminology used.
