I'm originally from New Jersey, and it's just as bad there also. This grim situation was the reason for the Douglass quote. The time is rapidly approaching when we will be faced with three choices. Stay and fight, stay and do nothing while preparing for even more tyranny, or leave. I'm lucky to be living in Montana where the gun environment is a lot different. Our time is coming with the likes of Baucus and Tester supposedly "representing" us, but I don't think it will happen in Montana first.
