I stopped on my way to work this evening and took a couple pictures. They're just cell pictures, but I'm using them to make a point.
A country road at sunset. Cornfields on either side, occasional farm houses, barns, trailers, etc. What makes this road special?
If I stand on this road and look east, this is the sign I see:
And if I look west?
So what's the difference? I've moved my residence from one side of the line to the other, when we purchased our house. Earlier this month our governor signed a bill that allows me to hunt with my .270 or AR on one side of the line, but only with my shotgun on the other. (It had been shotgun-only for both before.)
Thanks to NY's bizarre pistol permitting process, a permit from one side of the line takes 3-6 months and will always be stamped "HUNTING AND TARGET USE ONLY". The other side? No restrictions; true "concealed carry".
One other little bit... one is red on the map, and the other is blue.
Imagine that... and guess which side I moved to. Then tell me what the real difference is from one side of that road to the other.
