"tiered". Tiers are layers. Tears are, well, you know.
Second, I worked and lived in Michigan for 31 years for a company
that was confiscated by the Federal Government and "shared" with the UAW.
MI's City/Township/County/State Government's red tape, hoop-jumping,
and cash requirements to buy a gun and use it at a range brought TEARS
to my eyes and a large hole in my wallet.
In 1997 I retired and moved to Arizona. So far, all the Californians
who have moved here haven't been able to change "our" gun friendly culture.
Whether anyone agrees or not, we even did away with needing a CCW permit to carry concealed.
Oh yeah, I have two tiers of government in this state. County/State. Saves a lot a money, and a LOT of grief.
