Well, an hour or two north of phoenix and it's not so hot at all, Janet Napolitano doesn't live here anymore, and we do have constitutional carry. Texas is more authoritarian than AZ and less constitutional. That said, there is no perfect place and I doubt there ever will be. My perfect place would be weather like Santa Cruz, pro second amendment, fiscally responsible, but not socially conservative at all. Unless you're hurting someone else, stealing or killing without justification, for the most part, leave people to the themselves. Unfortunately, conservatives want to control certain aspects of people's lives, progressives other aspects. The heat does suck though. Come winter though and you forget about it. Almost. I'd like to get a place up on the rim or up Lake Mary Rd. It's 25-30 degrees cooler up there.
