Should you be worried? If you have paid attention to Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominations to date, terrified is a better word. One more nomination and probable confirmation from Obama and American history will be re-written.

Maryland now proposes an onerous new gun law that is certainly unconstitutional, and yet here it comes. I would move out of Maryland were I Beretta. I would move out of Connecticut were I Colt. And I would relocate both my residence and business out of Connecticut, Maryland, New York, California, New Jersey and Illinois, as just an opening six no-brainer choices. Pat Buchanan’s editorial, Who Is Winning the Gun War?, offers excellent perspective.
Click to my Liberty & Freedom map for Red State choices for relocation. Select from states that offer you Castle Doctrine protection as well as right to work status. It is also in your obvious self-interest to select a state with either no state income tax or a comparatively low personal income tax rate. I do have some state exceptions to my red state rule. Vermont and Virginia offer excellent gun law protection, and Florida may as well be a red state. I am a Florida resident. If you plan to drive interstate with firearms in your car, I advise that you have a copy of United States Traveler’s Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States. You will find that the gun travel-friendly top 15 states are led by Alaska, Vermont and Utah. The bottom eight stinkers include worst-of-the-worst New Jersey, Massachusetts, Hawaii, and the District of Colombia.
