It is ironic, I was in meetings all week and several MAJOR Libs that live in San Fran/Jose told me they even have guns now. Amazing to me.
I can't tell you how many of those "Libs" are actually libertarians who support the Constitution. I am actually astonished at how many people I run into day to day who are gun owners. I have a good friend who is also a neighbor and he is a self-proclaimed Socialist, but he is also a gun owner.
Next time you are in the Bay Area send me a PM and maybe we can meet up. Your wife might change her mind when she finds out that we have very mild winters and mild dry summers with very low humidity. It rarely snows here at my house which is 2000' elevation but never on the valley floor (the edges of the valley floor are around 600' or so above sea level). Any snow here at the house is gone within a few days. I don't even need a snow shovel for what we get.
