Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

Iowa is 7 out of 100. Pretty damn good.
Read a little on their website though. They have some scewed facts and opinions for sure.

Avoid the following states: California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York.
Hawaii...they are the top 5 or bottom five depending on how you view it...

Doesn't that Brady map look a lot like the 2008 election results? All that beautiful red...

I gotta put in a good word for ORegon. We are filled with ex-Cali's (I am from the OC)!

We are a Shall-issue state. A law-abiding citizen WILL be able to get a carry permit with very few hoops. Open carry is okay in many areas (but I never do that). There is easy access to gun clubs and ranges all around the Portland Metro area.

But Oregon is still not in the top 5. I still feel pretty comfortable here as an active gun-owner.

Washington, even, has pretty lax concealed-carry laws. I've got a WA license even though I live in OR.

I think Vermont would have to be #1, though. And I think in Idaho, they issue you a firearm as you move in.

Utah
Official State Gun.......The 1911 of course
I was really hoping that would have been the image stamped onto the back of
the states quarter! But no, something about a trans-continental railroad spike was more important

Colorado is pretty good. Avoid Denver and Boulder areas. Stay western slope, eastern plains or Colorado Springs. Shall issue state and legal OC other than Denver.
