Moving To Wyoming

Zappa missed by one state

I live 40 miles from Wyoming now, and would be thrilled to support their low crime state with my tax money. Wyoming has one of the lowest crime rates in the US, and a murder rate lower than many countries in Europe. Almost everyone in Wyoming owns a gun or two or three …..

    It is God’s country, after all. Some of the best times in my life were spent in Wyoming. And my ancestor, Bill, played a large part in the founding of Cody. ;)

    Classic Nugent on Schiff’s radio show…

    “Nugent turned his attention to violent crime statistics published by the F.B.I., Scotland Yard, and the United Nations.

    “Where there are more guns in citizens’ hands, not only does crime go down, not only does violent crime go down, but personal assaultive-type crimes like rape, carjacking, and home invasion — they don’t just down, Peter: They go away,” he said.”

    Hopefully some of the other state that have passed a Firearms Freedom Act will follow suit on this as well.
