    So which state is most gun friendly? Or do most states compare to one another in their friendliness?

    How does the friendliness apply to:
    Handguns, “assault rifles/weapons”, .50 BMG etc etc etc

    You know, all the “bad” guns and all the other TYPES of things that are firearms related that have more restrictions upon them than most other things. I.e.; how many hand guns can be purchased at one time, how many hoops you have to jump through to get a handgun, etc.

    What other issues can you think of that wouldn't be a problem in said state?

    I wants to know so I can move to whatever state is the best for guns. :D

    Cripes, I'm just looking for you number aren't I? No problems in SD as far as I can tell. I think that when you start getting into the more populated states is when you start running into problems. EG. Minnesota, can only hunt with shotgun slugs whereas northern Minnesota can hunt with rifles....WHY... because of population. SD, ND, WY, MT, all these states and those like em, have EVERYTHING shooters could ever want.

    EDIT: By invoking MN, I meant the southern half.

    ATFE publishes a catalog of state laws. Go get it and see which state has the fewest pages.

    IIRC, Alaska or Idaho.

    Republic of Alaska.

    VT style or CHL. Your choice.
    Recognizes CHLs from all states. Don't have one? You can still carry when visiting.
    Guns allowed in vehicles open or concealed, loaded or not (including long guns) your choice.
    Open carry in all state and municiple jurisdictions. The Nazi Park Circus still prohibits carry in National Parks so stay away from Denali.
    Very Class III friendly. Don't know of any CLEOs who won't sign off on the paperwork.
    No restrictions on purchase other than federal.

    delaware has very friendly gun laws....in my opinion. especially considering its proximity to new jersey, new york, maryland and dc.

    You have to factor in other criteria.West Virginia is great for guns and other forms of outdoor recreation but really lousy for jobs.Virginia is not as good but has a much better job market.Gun freindliness shouldn't be your only criteria.

    I do all the time. I even carry rifles openly in Spenard, at least from the car to the apartment. I've often wanted to try an experiment ditching all my firearms but a single rifle, and just carry that around openly in the city 24/7. But I'm not brave enough to try it.

    My state not bad

    Mississippi has it pretty good at a 'D' rating. No waiting periods, no restrictions on weapons in vehicle (car is extention of home) and concealed carry permit with a little paper work. No open carry but I don't think I would anyway.
