I just got back from a trip to western PA. They are not, by any stretch of anyone's imagination passive about gun rights.
Everywhere I went, there were billboards saying we will not give up the second amendment, Gadsden and minutemen flags, just, you name it.
I was actually surprised by it going up from the south b/c it was even more noticeable up there. Hunting, and defense and, thus, the second amendment are HUGE up there.
And the deer were EVERYWHERE, holy shit, people's yards, on the road, just everywhere, so, it's going to be a BIG year up there on hunting, and the deer are so much bigger up there too. They may just take the title of size of a states standing army b/c you just KNOW they are busting at the chance.
maybe out east they're lukewarm, but, damn, not where I was.
