Thanks Brady Campaign!

I never thought I would thank the Brady campaign but they did my research for me on which states I would not want to live in....

The lower the score the better obviously!

I love how 16% is a passing score.

Lemmon I don't want to leave SC I was born and raised on James Island although Charleston has had it's fair share of Yankee liberals invade in the past 15yrs. I was just researching gun friendly states and came across that thought it was useful.....lol

You know. That list just makes me upset. Texas is supposed to be bigger and better in everything, but we're all the way up at 39, meaning 11 states are better than us!

Better get a move on improving things in this legislative cycle.

Good for those of you in Utah, Alaska, and Arizona!!! But watch out, Texas is coming for ya.

Hey, you folks in South Carolina need to start reciprocating with Georgia on our permits. We need to be good neighbors and it would be nice to carry when I’m over there eating my Low Country Boil.

Texas only has 4 points at all because of no open carry and no constitutional carry.

We like guns.
We make sure our politicians understand that.
And, we're the best.

Berrylee I couldn't agree more when I go to the Savannah Bass Pro I always forgot that my CWP doesn't mean squat across the boarder. FYI you can get good Low Country boil in Savannah.....lol

Lesseee, Arkansas got 4 points over all and ranked 30th on the list (though I'm confused by the T-39 rank). We got:
  • 2 pts for: Employers not forced to allow firearms in parking lots

    and
  • 2 pts for: Colleges are not forced to allow firearms on campus

I think Arkansas is 30th on the list, and tied for 39th place overall among the states.

A fair amount of States are below 14 which is a good sign.

Wow, surprised that NY is lower than Cali. As far as gun rights go, I would probably rather be in CA over NY. Not that it's a good choice one way or the other, but lesser of two evils and all that.
But then here in NYC we get to see the ABSOLUTE WORST of the gun control in this nation.

Interesting is at 7 points. That is higher than needed IMO. We need to look towards Utah as the ideal I think.

Chicago, IL residents should feel assured that being the murder capital of America had a great score.

California #1. I'm glad I moved out of LA.

Since Brady lives in Centralia, Illinois, I am surprised Illinois is at #9. Almost hippo-crito. (that's Horsecreek Latin)
