    To counter my other post I thought id try to figure out the best states to own a firearm. For this poll I included many more states since the data is more about finding several of the most pro gun states. Also sorry if i exlcuded your states thiers only 16 slots.

    I have to vote for Virginia. About the only bad gun law we have is one handgun a month unless you have a concealed carry permit or it's a private sale. I grew up in NY state and I have family in CA. My family members from both states can not believe that I can buy a handgun with just the handing over of money and the shake of a hand.

    Well missouri is certainly a very hunting friendly state but compared to oklahoma or nevada i dont see how it would earn a vote.

    Well - Alabama is pretty easy. CCW isn't shall issue by law but I think it pretty much is by practice. People don't freak out when you talk guns.

    As far as laws are concerned, it is hard to beat Vermont. Concealed carry with no permit, no permits needed for anything, and the state does not participate in NICS. Pretty much the only knock againt VT gun laws is a ban on sound supressors, mainly to prevent poaching. Alaska is close to Vermont in laws (they allow supressors, but also participate in NICS), and Alaskan culture is probably more gun-friendly than Vermonter culture, even if they are close. Also, lots of empty land in AK = lots of places to shoot.

    I have to agree, Alaska is a great place to own a firearm. Lots of public land, not alot of people, guns are a culture all to themselves.

    Now that I live in Idaho, it's not bad here either, but it's no Alaska.

    Both your polls are screwy.

    You put Colorado on the list of "bad" states and not on the list of "good" states.

    Colorado is a better state for gun owners than Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Virginia or Pennsylvania if by "good" you mean lax gun laws and easy to get CCW without a bunch of stupid restrictions.

    PA has almost no gun laws compared to other states. Carry just about anywhere and almost no off limits places.

    Voted TN for ownership.

    Technically, a state with no sales tax is the best. Either way, it is good to be a Tennessean.

    No limit on # of purchases
    SBR and Silencers
    Machine Gun Friendly
    Shall Issue
    Shooting ok on public lands (except national forests... and state land trust)
    No State AWB
    Castle Doctrine

    The only bad law is the no carrying into establisments serving liquor. And since I don't drink that ones kindof a :cuss:

    OK, who voted for Kansas? I know, you just clicked sumpin to see the poll results. :p

    Oklahoma's aren't too bad in comparison to a lot of states. I'm from here and I didn't vote for OK.

    It has to be Vermont. No permit needed to carry concealed or open and a state where even liberals like Howard Dean dare not push gun control.

    More state- operated gun ranges than you can shake a stick at, good hunter's resources, and our gun and self- defense rights are moving towards they should be.

    And we have Lake City.:D


    Plus, no more One- Term Bob.

    I live in Tennessee but did not vote for it because of too many restrictions like no carry in restaurants that serve and questionable park carry.

    Also, a business can post a sign and get you in a world of hurt if you are caught in there carrying. They effectively write the law by being allowed to post and have it stand up as law.

    The libs in Memphis seem to be making sure it stays that way.

    The restaurant thing is a difficulty because there are more restaurants (and good ones) here in east Tennessee per capita than most anywhere else and everyone goes out to eat on any night of the week. I don't like being unarmed when out with wifey at any time. HELL, I don't like being unarmed anywhere or time.

    Nevada.
    Open carry, ccw, most of the land is public, we can shoot in our national forest, fun switch, not very many people live were I am, and last, but certainly not least, I've escaped from California.:neener:

    Alaska is the best state to own a firearm in, but Vermont is a close second.
