    Default Wyoming to Ban Gun Free Zones

    https://cowboystatedaily.com/2023/01...un-free-zones/
    https://www.wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2023/HB0105

    "HB 105 aims to eliminate those restrictions in public or taxpayer-funded spaces. Private property and businesses owners could still restrict firearms on their premises as they see fit.

    Moreover, it would make it a misdemeanor offence to try preventing someone from concealed carrying in any of those places, punishable by up to a year in prison and/or a $2,000 fine."

Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles. --Jeff Cooper"

    Yep... That's why I wound up here. WY was definitely on the short list but the cold is just too much for me. I lived there for a few years back in the late 70s and graduated from high school there. Great state for guns and freedom-loving people.

    You guys with your cold and windy. I have lived my entire life (minus 8 years in the Corps) on both sides of the Colorado/Wyoming Border. From Golden Gate Canyon, Nederland, Peak to Peak, Coal Creek Canyon, Golden, Weld county, etc

    The weather from Golden to Wheatland is pretty much the same. It is Windy along the Front Range alot. You may not notice it as much because you live in a neighborhood with houses and fences or in some condo complex, but its windy. I think the 7 county metro area gets more snow than we do in Southern Wyoming.

    I didnt say Cheyenne. I said Southern Wyoming. We live over 70 miles from Cheyenne. Who wants to live in a city? Yuck!!!

    Those numbers dont look that far apart anyway. Its like watching the talking heads on the news complain when it snows or rains. They live in a condo or house with a garage, drive to a parking garage and walk into work. Oh how hard a life that is.



    My post was not trying to discourage you from thinking about Wyoming. I think that the weather is close to the same. Laramie, Cheyenne and some other areas are higher elevation and get more weather. We are South East wyoming and its pretty mild. Obviously if you want warm then Oklahoma, Arizona, etc are a better option. IF you are ok with Colorado Front Range weather then parts of Wyoming will be a good fit. (if you can find a job or work remotely.)

    In a few years, short-term rentals of our family compound to progressives desperate to be near Boulder should pay for a place in the SE WY quadrant.

    There's nothing wrong with taking weather into account when choosing a place to live. Especially when retired and wanting to spend as much time as possible outdoors. I see nothing wrong with not liking the wind and bitter cold of a place like WY. I lived in Casper...I know what it's like in winter and it's not pleasant...for me anyway. On the rare occasion the wind slows down a bit, people fall over. No different than people not wanting to go somewhere like OK because of the threat of severe weather. That, and for some odd reason, people think OK is an ugly state. But that's OK...it keeps a lot of "undesirables" out. I bet people in WY feel the same way.

    On the other hand, WY has a lot of freedom-loving people and hasn't been completely overrun by leftists. That's a big plus.

    The only downside I'd have with living in WY is the even-shorter season for my peppers to grow. Aside from that, I'd happily move up there tomorrow if my wife were to retire. Actually, I'd go this afternoon.

    And the humidity. And bugs and snakes.

    No place is perfect. I want 77 degrees every day. 30-40 percent humidity. A bit of rain at night to keep things nice and green. No snow!

    Low taxes and small government. Cheap land, nice people and pretty girls.

    If anyone knows where this paradise exists, please let me know.
