Brady Campaign State Scorecards: Most States Have Weak Gun Laws
WASHINGTON - February 18 - Most states have weak or non-existent gun laws, helping feed the illegal gun market and allowing the sale of guns without background checks including at gun shows, according to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Forty-three states fail to close the loophole that allows criminals to buy guns at gun shows without Brady background checks.

Scores range from the first-ever "zero," earned by Utah, to 79 for California. The complete scorecard results can be accessed at Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Congrats...BTW, is there a single word of truth in that Brady Campaign news release?

Went to the site and looked to see where Oregon scored but after a couple of minutes looking around for the scorecard, I got the creeps and left.

Ran a virus scan
checked for spyware
rebooted the computer

and washed my hands!!

That bad? Well don't wan't to ruin anyones computer, I just copied and pasted from elsewhere. So don't click on the link everybody, just give Utah the standing ovation it deserves for getting a "ZERO".
Why is it I feel safer living here?

I'd move to Utah except there's not enough trees and water. I just can't do desert anymore.
