Default What are the states with the LOWEST/HIGHEST amount of gun control?

Ever since I joined this website I have had the growing feeling that maybe its time to leave California. Its gotten to the point where I am having semi serious conversations with the family about it. So I was wondering where is say the top 5 or so states with the LOWEST amount of gun control and then also the top 5 with the HIGHEST gun control
Thanks in advance

we in wisconsin just passed probably one of the strongest ccw/oc laws in the nation. goes into effect nov1. silencers full auto aow dod all legal to own. no restrictions state wise on types other than nfa federal rules.

i grew up in texas which was pretty good but with scott walker in charge here wisconsin just passed texas in the dust as a gun friendly state.

Arizona is a very gun friendly state.

Go to the Brady Campaign website. Go to the State rankings. Pick Brady's worst States and you'll be good to go.



Seriously. I just went there and checked it out.

Arizona is probably one of the most gun friendly states. Texas is somewhere up there too.

Ultra-liberal Vermont has the least gun-control laws in the nation. No joke. It's a beautiful state. New Hampshire right next door is a pretty close second, but it's more conservative and there are actually jobs to be had.

Avoid the following states: California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York.

According to the Brady website, Alabama is 16 out of 100. Pretty damn gun friendly.
