    But California has more military installations.

    And I'd argue that even with strict gun laws (in some counties) there are still a lot of firearms in California.

    Those installations are run by the federal government. I wonder if they would be torn down before secession, or simply abandoned.

    If it were to really come down to that, I'd say that the people staffing those bases are still living in the state and have the training/ experience to use the equipment on the base. I think that it would be turned over to the state for use & maintenance.

    CA and Texas also have substantial national guard components.

    I would like it if Texas became a separate nation, and took Oklahoma and Louisiana with us. Oklahoma has some of the nicest people in the country, and the southern Louisiana men can build or do virtually anything they set their minds to. They are very resourceful, and we (in Texas)have the resources needed.
