You already have a large chain of stores (Skyline?) specializing in chili (or 
something called that) in Ohio.  I couldn't compete, since I don't (except in 
experimental batches du jour) put cinnamon in chili.  (What Buckeyes call 
chili I call a weird Greek pasta sauce).  A good friend of mine was arrested 
in Ohio for packing while driving from his family's place in Kansas to his 
home in New Hampshire -- a case which probably helped get the Ohio CC law 
passed, but did him no good.  On long trips I always get gas at the west end 
of Pennsylvania so I won't contribute tax money to your government.

Private businesses are free to prohibit weapons on their premises.  We are 
free not to do business there.  It's a drag when there's a government 
involved.  New Jersey is 50th out of 51 in Second Amendment rights despite 
the proud boast of being the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights (only 
DC is worse).  I gotta get out of this place.

Come along to New Hampshire.  <http://www.freestateproject.org>

As General Stark said, "Live free or die!  Death is not the worst of 
evils."  (The New Hampshire motto only has the first phrase).

Madison said that tyranny would come to this land only under the guise of
fighting a foreign enemy. One hundred ninety-three years after his
unnecessary war with Britain, I must say he was right. -- Anthony Gregory
