This sort of crap is coming to every state in the Union sooner or later. Let's use Wyoming as an example. It's just about the most conservative, pro-gun state there is... but there are a whopping 500,000 residents living there. Now imagine if somebody lets Amazon build a new distribution center there, or Hollywood comes to town. All it would take is a measly half-million California or east coast transplants to move in and fill those jobs and suddenly it's a blue state. We are being outnumbered slowly but surely, as the leftists leave their ***thole high-tax states and infest neighboring states instead. And then the doors are wide open for people from third-world countries to move here and take all the jobs (not just low-wage, but high-wage like IT as well) for a small fraction of the pay folks like you or I would make. And of course they bring their entire families here with them as well.

50 years from now we will no longer recognize this country... that is pretty much assured.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
