Get out of here.

That was one Wyoming state representative’s message to a resident who contacted him recently stating her opposition to a bill that would have allowed people with concealed carry permits to carry guns in public schools, colleges and sporting events.

Rev. Audette Fulbright had emailed all state legislators, including Republican Rep. Hans Hunt, earlier this month to say she and her husband had just moved to Wyoming and were “seriously reconsidering” their decision amid the proposed expansion of gun laws.

“Ample evidence has shown that schools and guns do not mix, and in particular, guns in the hands of amateurs/non-professionals is extremely dangerous, especially in any highly-charged situation,” Fulbright wrote.“To expose our children to greater risk in their schools by encouraging more guns on campuses is something that we cannot allow.”

Fulbright also said she was concerned about “the profoundly serious dangers of fracking” and said the question of whether to leave was “wrenching to all of us.”

“I know of other new-to-Wyoming families in similar contemplation. Your choices matter. It would be sad to see an exodus of educated, childrearing age adults from Wyoming as a result of poor lawmaking,” she wrote.

Hunt’s response?“By all means, leave.”

“I’ll be blunt,” he wrote back.“If you don’t like the political atmosphere of Wyoming, then by all means, leave. We, who have been here a very long time (I am proudly 4th generation) are quite proud of our independent heritage.”

And the same goes for northern transplants who want to change Asheville. If they don't like good Christian, Southern values and culture, they can LEAVE and go back up north!

Leave? We own this place after Baking your Company during the Civil War. Heard of that? Us New Yorkers whipped your women and children's butts and stole all your livestock and food. We had fun target practicing with the old farts trying to dodge our Irish-German bullets. UndergroundBakingCompany. On 7th in Hendersonville. All organic, but usually day old baked goods.

I agree that people who move to another area and then want them to change to the area the newcomers came from is way stupid. It is the newcomers who ought to go home if they don't like the culture they moved to.
