The gun control craziness and high crime rate finally pushed out of our home state of California. We have family in the Vancouver, Washington area, so we made the big move. I feel like we've escaped from a communist country. California is no longer the gun friendly State I grew up in. In fact, it's not friendly in any regard. Especially Oakland, where we came from. Oakland has one of the highest crime rates in the nation and we were not allowed to own magazines that held more than ten rounds. Plus, we had to pass a test for Handgun Safety Certificate in order to purchase a handgun. Now there are bills pending that would restrict the purchase of ammo. Any mention that we were firearms enthusiasts brought nasty comments and hateful stares. It's insane!
