    Where would Florida rank in the list of gun friendly states? Also is there a list of states from most gun friendly to least gun friendly or is it to subjective?

    Lord, check with the Brady Bunch's website for a grade. I am completely confused over their criteria for issuing grades, but I'm sure y'all (a little Southern lingo) are in the "D" to "D-" range.

    New York State (The Armpit of America) has to be the least gun friendly state in America.

    I just don't think they have a rating system low enough for NY to accept.

    Ah, but Robby,

    If the Brady crowd gave them an A then (hopefuly) by your criteria you will give them a F. The converse is true also.

    Good staring point.

    As mentioned you want to have the "poorest' grade on the 'sheeple ratings" though...

    I forget PA grading but I'd say it was well in the top 30% ..... has ''shall issue'' for CCW and certainly in my own area, there are plenty of shooters .... hunting of course being pretty big. Still very aware tho of the declining numbers of gun shops these days.:(

    Although I only work there, I think W VA has got to be near the top.

    Vermont. No permits needed, period.

    New Hampshire. Live Free or Die- says it all. Great tax structure too!

    Robby-

    Your problem isn't New York. It's that cesspool island you live on (with my in-laws:uhoh: )

    Seriously upstate is much better. CCW can be a hassle (varies by county), but if you're clean, usually no problems.


    PA is pretty cool, so far. No personal transfer of handguns is only downside i see.

    Vermont would have to be the best - you can open or conceal carry without a license.
    I would have to put Georgia near the top. If you are legal to own a gun, you can get a permit - no classes or tests.

    Vermont is the #1

    But don't forget AZ we got a D from the Brandy bunch and with the new gun laws. We should get a big fat F next time the brand bunch update there grades.:evil:

    Plus in southern AZ we don't get snow :neener: :neener: :neener:

    WA is friendly. Good carry and personal protection laws. The major drawback in this state is the retarded democratic socialist government running the largest metro area.

    Mainly PRK, PRO folks that leave and come up here and ruin the place.

    Other wise its real nice. Its getting better as well because all those freeloaders are bailing the sinking ship of virtual economy.

    Good riddance.

    I think that Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, and Alaska are the top five.

    Louisiana is pretty good as far as being gun friendly. We got a F from the Brady Bunch.

    Besides packing.org, check out www.full-auto.com for more info on states that allow, you guessed it, full-auto weapons and other goodies. Here's the link for the State by State Index .

    My guesses:

    SBR: short barreled rifle
    SBS: short barreled shotgun
    AOW: any other weapon
    DD: destrucive device

    Ya'll forgot Utah. Shall Issue carry permit, carry anywhere (besides courts and federal property) with permit, businesses can't restrict firearms on thier property (asinine, but cool), you can even CCW in a bar here :neener:
    BLM Land to shoot on, plus a public range owned by the Department of Wildlife Resouces. Also a Class III state.

    OK, that hurt. It just snowed here again last night. YUCK!!!

    Illinois has got to be close to the top of the worst gun law states, and will likely get worse with the current stooge, 'er governor that was just elected. :fire:

    Kentucky...

    Last year we got an "F-" from the Brady bunch however, sadly :), this year we somehow moved up to an "F". Pretty good for CCW here. A great many judges and legislators have gun collections and are PROUD to talk about their collections.

    Stay away from Maryland. Don't even visit or pass through.

    Brady Bunch gave MD a perfect "A". Only state to get a perfect A.

    The State Attorney General, Joseph Curran, who was re-elected in November apparently hates gun owners and wants to disarm them all, especially handgun owners.

    State is running away with crime despite our "A" rating. Number one for six years running nationwide in armed robbery and number two nationwide in crimes of violence, according to the FBI.
