Thread: Why I'm leaving WA
Because, local governments refuse to follow state firearm law, prosecutors abusing their authority and charging citizens with imaginary firearm crimes, the public being constantly on the defense over firearm possession, police officers that murder citizens without any justification, (and my personal favorite), being asked during a job interview if I belonged to the KKK because I once lived in the South.

I'm not seeing anything in your post that is a problem specific to WA state. Frankly, we have it pretty good here as gun owners for such a liberalized state. Thanks to preemption, at any rate. You gotta remember, there are liberal idiots in every state, even Texas.
Move to where it's better, like NY, CT, or NJ.
Serious question... Where do you plan to go?
Well, goodbye and best of luck to you.
Might I suggest Arizona or Alaska, as your next home?
Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.

Did I mention 7,840 bridges in Washington are considered structurally deficient...
Let's all move to France, they are experts at running away when presented with adversities. They even have rear view mirrors on their armored vehicles so they can see the battle as they run away.
Washington State has it pretty good compared to that sinking ship called California where I came from.
My wife and I were looking to retire there, this os crazy to hear. LEOs murder? Asked of you belonged to the clan because you lived in the South.

Washington really isn't that bad compared to many other liberal states. No one wants to touch gun laws here - make them better or worse - since it would be polictical suicide. The weather is decent, jobs are usually available if you are in the right field. We certaintly aren't perfect - high cost of living, high taxes, hard to start and run a business here, but we really aren't the worst. If you have better personal or professional opportunities elsewhere, hopefully in a state that is "freer" than WA, then best of luck to you. But honestly, the reasons why you want to leave are incredibly nit-picky.
I'm moving from Texas to Washington in two weeks. Texas is one of the most restrictive states in the country when it comes to handguns. The Republican legislature has absolutely zero incentive to give two squirts of rat crap about liberty or rights.
I'm looking forward to carrying my PPQ in a DeSantis Thumb Break.
I'm glad you have seen the light in the the northwestern skies. Follow the light...
593 acres in Wyoming is calling my name......
But yeah, there is at least one police department in the state that seems to have a history of officers violating peoples rights, up to, and including, murdering them without just cause, and getting away with it pretty much Scott free.

Interesting enough SPD is smack in the middle of liberal heaven. They love more government until it shoots them in the back.
