Hey guys, I'm thinking about taking a job in Birmingham. 1st, how are the gun laws? 2nd, how is life in general in Birmingham? Things like crime, taxes, cost of living and the damn politicians. Any info is greatly appreciated.

Gun laws? What gun laws?

Only laws I know of is the CCW permit requirements.

As for crime, some parts are worse than other, but on the most part not too bad IMO.

Who might you be working for, If you can say.

I've seen nine states and can honestly say that Bama is the best. Know which area you're moving into first. Anything north of Fultondale, South of Hoover, or west of Center Point is ideal.

First, thanks for the info guys. Second, if all goes as planned, I'll be working for US Steel. IF. I haven't looked for a house yet. Figured I'd get an apartment and then figure out where I want to live after seeing it all. Speaking of that, how are house prices? I was thinking of getting back to the country life and commuting. God I hate that term. I'm a "commuter", next I'll be driving a damn Volvo.

I'm supprised that US Steel is hiring. I know that Bush restricted steel imports and then lifted the rescrictions. Things must have changed in the steel market. At one time that mill was on the verge of shutting down.

Well things did not go as planned, so I won't be moving to the area. Which sucks, I hate Virginia. Oh yeah, the job was an electronics tech. take it easy out there.

Sorry it didn't work out for you. Just remember we've always got a place for another 2nd Amendment enthusiast here though!

You should look at the Huntsville/North AL area for a job - high tech, low cost of living, highest standard of living in the state.
