Over on our Facebook Page, Arjen San Miguel responded to the NYC Department of Education’s ban on the word “gun” in standardized tests. “The more I read about the crap going on in NYC, the more I feel squeamish about getting a job there. And mom plans to hook me up with a friend of hers there. NOPE. Definitely aiming for a gun-friendly state once I’m done with college here. Or just stay and enjoy the fact that the politicos here are smart enough to keep their mitts off lawful gun owners’ business.” We know that some gun guys have left gun-aversive states for more gun-friendly climes (e.g., me), but the fact that a young ‘un would eschew a gun control-intensive state is news. This non-immigration adds credence to the ballistic canary in the coal mine theory. As gun owners don’t go, so goes the nation? And if you live in a gun control (i.e. socialist) paradise would you encourage your child to emigrate?
