I was born in Buffalo NY in 1948 and left NY in 1966 when I joined the Air Force. I never considered moving back to NY when I left the service in 1978, I lived in MO for the next 38 years before moving to Texas 7 years ago. The reason was jobs were hard to come come by, and taxes were really high back then. Back then when I was growing up you could only hunt deer in NY with a shotgun and not a rifle so firearms were restricted back then too. I would never return to a state that didn't embrace the 2nd amendment, but in the end if the people just let what is happening in these states to continue, they damn well deserve what they get and voted for.
