I was interested in seeing how the population of this forum was distributed. I was wondering if most of the people on here were from low scoring states.

Its because of the stupid waiting period we have. Yeah because in passion crimes, people really take a timeout to go buy a gun.:banghead: At least we have Castle doctrine, where in the words of the Brady campaign, "permitting him or her to assume the role of police officer, prosecutor, judge, and executioner."

My state is 20 out of 50 states. Score is 13. This is what annoys me, though...


LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION MAGAZINES
Are there limitations on large capacity ammunition magazines? No

Ohio - There is no state law restricting the sale or possession of large capacity ammunition magazines that can fire 30, 50 or even 75 rounds without reloading. Ammunition magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition are considered large capacity magazines. These types of ammunition magazines are available for any firearm capable of accepting a detachable magazine, including assault weapons and semi-automatic handguns.


We can't use anything over 32 rounds, or Ohio classifies it as a machine gun. Sure, load the magazine, own the magazine, but do not put it in the gun. Stupid, I know. I think some people who have the stamps/permits for machine guns can use the larger capacity magazines.

Ditto, other than to see what to write my congress people and state legislators about what to REMOVE from our books. There are too many Federal laws as it is. There is certainly no need for state laws to futher restrict our rights.

NY ranks 51 out of 100. It doesn't 'RANK' 51st out of 100, it racked up 51 POINTS out of a possible 100.

Yup......which, aside from the Police Officer part, is exactly what the CRIMINALS have been doing for years!

Indiana - Number 32 out of 50!!! Tied with the Sunshine State and Big Sky Country with 8 points. This one list you want to be low on. California must be awful if it ranks so much higher than our neighbor Illinois. I guess Illinois ranks as low as it does because, at some point, some how, some way, somebody must be able to buy a gun and some ammunition and somebody must be able, on some occasions actually shoot one now and again...legally.

"Back Home Again in Indiana" never sounded so good.

Another Florida here....

Don't forget about our "Stand your ground" law removing the duty to retreat. They like to call that the "Dirty Harry" law. We're also known as the Gunshine state.... :D

Check here (http://www.bradycampaign.org/bradyreport/2006/august/giw/) for more information on the "triangle of death". Nearly every sentence there is an outright lie. In fact, much of it can be classified as libel. Someone should sue the Brady Campaign.

We 'scored' 63 points according to the Brady Bunch...
Well at least there's California at #1...talk about rationalizing :banghead:

Technically if you use Brady's methods, DC would have ranked #1 pre-Heller... I wrote about it a while back...see the article at NJCSD here: http://www.njcsd.org/content/view/724/9/

This is stupid.

Here are some laws that this idiotic website states to be true for Pennsylvania.

CHILD-SAFETY LOCKS
Must locking devices be sold with guns? Yes

State law requires every gun to be sold with a child-safety lock to make it easier for gun owners to lock up their weapons. But there are no standards for the child-safety locks to ensure that they are of sufficient quality to work well. The law does NOT require gun owners to actually use the safety locks to secure their weapons - the law only says they must be sold with guns. Also see: Safety Standards and Child Access Prevention.


No, this is a lie, no gun i have ever bought had a trigger lock on it. I have bought from FFL dealers as well. WRONG

JUVENILE SALE
Is it illegal to sell handguns to anyone under 21 years of age? No

State law does not restrict selling handguns to juveniles under the age of 21 by unlicensed sellers. Under federal law, only federally licensed dealers are prohibited from selling or delivering handguns or ammunition for handguns to any person under the age of 21. A strong state law is needed to stop unlicensed persons from selling handguns to those under the age of 21.


So why is it that i can't get one? This is so stupid its beyond me.


If I were satan, i would reserve one of the deepest pits of hell for people like this. They think they are helping the problem, yet they are only fueling it. The sad result is most likely the lives of thousands.
