Yes, this is not gun-related so you really should ask this elsewhere.
For example, you should ask this at the CityData (Google it) online forums...find the oneconcerning Texas and ask questions there (after you read some Dallas/Ft. Worth posts first). CityData forums are one place (among others) people shouldgo in order to research some city/town/villagethey might want to move to since people responding actually live there or have lived there and can tell you THEIR experiences. You can find out about neighborhoods, crime, schools, employment opportunites (or lack thereof), cost of living and other things you should research BEFORE actually moving.
Well, at least to SOME degree you can find out these things!
I mean thatthe CityData forums are heavily and unfairly censored, meaning they do not allow people to speak the truth about a place if said truth is negative (usually people who try to post something addressing crime problems, race discrimination or other raceissues, language and or reverse discrimination, etc.) -- even posting about the pros of gun ownership and carry (due to crime stats of some place) can get you in trouble -- so you don't get the full picture, i.e., BOTH sides of the story...the good AND bad points of a city/town/village.
The Mods seem to allow good news -- and lots of warm-and-fuzzy BS that has little to do with reality (yeah, LOTS of liberals over there posting AND running the site)-- but the bad news they delete posts or even ban people who try to address reality, so they don't care if you only hear the GOOD stuff. I am SURE somepeople have probably moved to some place -- hearing only the good -- and found out the bad AFTER they moved (no jobs available, poor wages, high crime rates, sorry schools, that you have no employent/career future if you only speak English, and so on...that's pretty sorry of the site but that's how it is over there, and the site owner/Admin seems to be just as unfair as he backs up his sorry Mods. I don't see how only hearing the good is really helpful, as I believe people should hear the bad, too, then let THEM make up their minds, not the Mods cutting out the negative.
Still, you can read through threads about Dallas/Ft. Worth (there should be many since these are big cities) to find lots of opinions and post your own specific questions...just take what is said cautiously. Look for the COMPLETE pictureelsewhere, but CityData is one place to check out and make up your own mind on it. So goto CityDatato ask things like this. It's not for researching just about Texas of course,as there are forums for all thethe states, too.
As well, it lists lots of demographical info for each place...which is also very good (and unlike the "subjective" forums, the demographics data is unbiased census facts and figures).
Two other sites to check out along these lines -- researching places in which you may want to live -- are "Sperlings Best Places" and "Epodunk."
