This is EASY…… pack up and MOVE to Arizona or Oregon … take your hard earned cash and leave cash strapped Calif., just leave ! .. and enjoy the smog free blue sky of someplace else….. then write to Bonehead Gov. Brown and tell him why you live elsewhere,…. at some point someone in Sacramento will get it…… but probably not real soon. And RDNK you got it ! … I do no business N.Y., Cal., N.J. period.


I blows me away that the good people in Kalifornia tolerate this tyranny by staying there ! They are next door to Arizona which is the best state in the country for 2A freedoms ! People need to move and/or boycott Kali. by no travel (vacations),don’t buy anything made or sold there,don’t do business or banking there,etc,etc,. Hit them in the pocket !!!
