America has been described as a mobile nation. Many people move from job to job, city to city, state to state, always expecting to find greener pastures somewhere new. Sometimes, moves are due to a company relocating, sometimes due to promotions and sometimes moving closer to family.
Regardless of the reason, hundreds of thousands of Americans are moving all the time. This is what makes companies like U-Haul and Ryder Trucks so successful.
But before you relocate, you may want to check out the gun laws for your desired location. Their gun laws could very well make the difference between being able to defend yourself or being a victim.
What would you do in the following situation?
You are a woman with a teenaged daughter. At 11:30 pm at night, you are sitting on the edge of your bed, getting ready for a good night’s sleep when you hear a window in your house break. You walk towards the broken window only to see a black American female throwing a hammer at you through the window.
Would it make a difference if you lived in Baltimore, Maryland or Tulsa, Oklahoma?
Since Oklahoma is a gun-friendly state and you live in Tulsa, you have a handgun handy and are able to grab it before heading to the broken window. With gun in hand, what would you do when you see the hammer come flying at you through the broken window?
This did happen to a woman in Tulsa earlier this week. She fired her gun at the hammer throwing intruder, scaring the woman away…
Would you even consider moving to a place like Baltimore where you stand a greater chance of becoming a victim of a crime or would you prefer to move to a place like Tulsa where they honor a person’s right to self-protection with a gun. Most people who move fail to consider this before they make their decision, but it could be one of the most important things to consider first.
