Dual Wield?

No, dual residency!

I wonder how many gunnies in restrictive states establish residency in whole nother state as a means to get around unconstitutional and or onerous gun laws back in the 'home' state? Say, a New York resident with a condo in Florida. Said New Yorker lives in NY 45 weeks of the year, but has that address down in more friendly Florida.

Or a Baltimorean with a mail drop in Texas. Get a TX drivers license, a mail drop, you don't have to worry about income taxes there, and be sure not to vote in both places. I can own an M1A in Maryland, for instance, and possess it, I can just no longer legally buy one. If I stay in Maryland I am done buying M1As.

And I wonder how expensive that would be...  Would a POBox be enough...

It was enough for Bush the first. He had a Texas post office box and stayed in a hotel in Dallas for two weeks a year. Claimed residency and avoided income taxes in Maine.

And 'residency' for state purposes is residing in the state you claim MORE than 180 days a year, unless you're military...

The simple answer is to move to Texas. I miss the no income tax thing. 19 years of no state income tax and then I move to a state with some of the highest tax rates around. Color me stupid.

What Olf NFO said. It's illegal and not hard to catch you. If guns or voting are involved, they can hammer you with felonies.

Come on Down to Texas. I'm down by Corpus, and it's right nice down here. You can get a drivers license right away, although you might have to take a Driver safety course, which is available on-line and costs about $30.00. I didn't have to, but my eldest daughter did. After she took it, my insurance rate went down 18 a month.
