This is quite true, being one of them (the Nor'easter to move to NC, not the progressive baggage type... ), I can tell you first hand that NC gets in the neighborhood of 50-75k new residents every year (IIRC...could be more). This has gone on for as long as I've been here (20 years) and shows no signs of slowing up...

The progressive fools seem to self segregate themselves as well, sticking to counties such as Wake (Raleigh/Durham/CH) and Mecklenburg (Charlotte) but there are plenty of folks, like me, who came here to get away from the nanny statism that is the Northeast...along with a myriad of other reasons.

For the first time in over 80 years, we have a Republican majority in the House, Senate and a Republican Governor so even though some progressivism seeps in, things are very much heading in the right direction...(Not to say that the Republican party is all that and a bag of chips but it's better than it was just a short time ago...)...cough cough...Bev Perdue can die of gonnorhea and rot in Hell...cough cough...

A lot has changed in the 40 years since you were last here, I think if you gave it a hard look, you'd be pleasantly surprised...

Taxes? Yes, some states have it better, but it could be worse. There are proposed incentives on the table right now set to benefit small business owners (as well as the big guys...Hello Ruger!!) but AFIK nothing is set into motion...

Property values? I think there is a lot to be desired, but there are many, many places that are in worse shape...Hint hint...great time to buy...

The school system is a clusterf*ck, re-districting, population explosion and politics make it a big fat headache, do you have kids?

People here for the most part are still friendly and will give you the shirt off their back to help...except for them damn Yanks!!

Google NC HB 937 for the latest (and good) gun law changes. Along with recent revisions of our Castle Laws, things are looking up for those of us who love liberty...

Our two biggest industries, IT and Construction, got hit hard with the "recession"...Outsourcing of the tech jobs and the mortgage crisis really took it's toll but while the recovery is slow, it's steady...

.02 given...sales pitch complete...

Georgia, of course! Check out GeorgiaCarry.org at the link below.

http://www.gacarry.org/

I think you'll like the "Frequently Asked Questions" and "Current
News" sections. You can also learn all you want to know about
about our "Georgia Weapons Carry License" (GWCL) and Georgia
weapons statutes. With the GWCL, you may carry weapons (guns
and/or knives with blade over 5") concealed or openly.

If you haven't moved yet, you'll be welcome in Georgia and I
think you would be happy here.

I was there in late December (Toccoa area) and I was VERY happy there.

GA law are pretty good for gun owners.

As for concealed carry in SC I have to own property to in SC to get a concealed carry permit. I don't believe SC reciprocates with very many states because of that. You don't have to live there just own property to protect. I'm not sure how this effects military living there though.

I'm not trying to talk you into moving to SC, but you can live in SC and obtain a SC permit and also obtain a Florida non resident permit. This will allow you to
carry in most states where your SC permit is not honored. IIRC, that includes
Georgia. That is not the case if you live in Georgia and have a non resident
permit from any state whose permit is honored by SC.

I personally think (hope) Ga. and SC will work things out in the near future.
Georgia will honor any state's weapons permit that honors Georgia's permit.

From your previous post, Toccoa is a beautiful place. The Toccoa Falls State
Park is a favorite vacation spot for many folks!

I'm from Georgia (family goes back at least to the 1850's there), so I'm biased. Move to SC, Georgia has enough former Yankees already! J/K...

Anyplace in the South is better than anyplace up North, as someone has already pointed out.
