I hope all the refugees seeking refuge in those states, don't plan on changing those states.  Look at Colorado and all the tree huger moving in there now.
  And new stupid gun laws!

Exactly!  I think Colorado kept the magazine capacity ban, and that is why Magpul moved out of there.

I hope sensible Californians just pack up and leave. California conservatives are outnumbered by big city liberals who want to create some bizzare version of Europe in their state. This nonsense will continue until the conservative voters outnumber the liberal voters...which I doubt will ever happen in California. 

California has densely populated big cities and people who live in big cities seem to have values which tend to favor big government as they see it as their chief provider and protector in their urban jungle. That philosophy doesn't work so well as many people in the inner city of Chicago and Baltimore will attest. It sure didn't help Kate Steinle in San Francisco either.

The rest of us "rural hicks", tend to rely on ourselves, our families, friends and of course firearms to protect us. We recognize, "less government is best government", because problems are best solved at the lowest possible level, police respond AFTER the crime has been committed and when SECONDS count, the police are MINUTES away.

Although, many good people would be hurt, I personally would like to see California suffer an economic collapse. Sadly, I believe that is the only way to truly show the people their liberal ideology is fiscally unsustainable going forward.

"The rest of us "rural hicks", are the ones that voted President Trump into office and said no to Hitlery. I think California is somehow headed for a cultural decline whether they see it or not. Either many of the good people don't vote, or their voting system is rigged. Although, you don't see the people protesting against the voting outcome, which would be a step towards turning things around if it was rigged. It's hard to believe that "everyone" in San Fransisco feels the same about letting Kate Steinle's murderer go free. Not one holdout on the jury. I wonder if an American citizen, say a parole
out of prison, would have gotten the same not guilty verdict? They put their ideals above their morals.
 
An exodus has already started. My wife told me she read an article that stated California, Illinois, and New Jersey had more middle-class, middle-income people fleeing those states than any other others. Most of those refugees are heading to Nevada, Florida, and Texas, with lower taxation being the big draw to those states.

I would hope that the number of bad laws being passed and the sanctuary state proposal by the Gov. Moonbeam would also be a big part of the exodus.

It is all so sad about California.  But it is an example of what can happen to a wonderful State, when it is ruled by completely clueless leaders.  I think that the Feds should shut off their funding until they stop this "sanctuary" crap.  And I do not understand these "sanctuary" cities blatantly breaking the law in regards to immigration laws.  If a civilized society does not like a law, then they work to get the law changed, like Americans did in regards to Prohibition.  In third world banana republics, you just break the law.  If they want to smoke pot, that's fine; they are smoking it in California.  But when you are letting in MILLIONS of illegal aliens, those aliens spread out all across the country.  My ancestors immigrated here LEGALLY, and did not take a dime from the government.  The illegal aliens from the South, and the Muslims from the Middle East should be required to do the same.  MM
