I would move to the UK, but I couldn't deal with the weather.
I think that areas have different ideas on what is acceptable and what isn't. I think it is a lot to do with your background and how you grew up. If a state ever secedes and it is the South I would go in a hurry because I do believe in a Confederacy, like states have more power than the federal government so individual states can customize their needs accordingly.
But an entire ban from the government is not logical. It's much too costly, mental health checks definitely, though you cannot make the person pay for it, so everyone pays for it.
Olympia, the second amendment was not created for hunters, it was created so a government cannot ban firearms and leave the people defenseless if the government does try anything. Britain was a tyranny over the colonies, the founding fathers don't say bear flint locks or muskets, an army armed with those today would get destroyed and not stand a chance, if they did know of the technology they would of said keep it, but a plane capable of flying faster than the sound barrier or a rifle that could kill someone over a mile away wasn't logical to them. If someone thought about that they would probably be locked away.
Edit: Yes there is a high murder rate with guns, but that doesn't mean an "assault" rifle ban will change that as those types of guns (semiautomatic rifles) account for such a small amount of murders, roughly 50 or so every year. Thats because it is kind of hard to get away when you are the only person carrying a rifle when there were just shots fired. A pistol however accounts for most murders, usually the pistol used is a revolver as well.
