    Arizona for sure. Although we're uncomfortably close to **********.

    Accept for our comic book based one gun a month law I say Virginia is right friendly toward firearms.

    I won't make any claims for fear of an influx of carpet baggers. :D

    While I'm sure that Texas is better than many (most?) states, it is no where near the gun friendly state as popular mythology makes it to be. Its strongest point is that Long guns are pretty much unregulated, but you cannot carry a pistol anywhere without a CHL permit. Therefore open carry is completel'y forbidden unless for some "legitimate sporting purpose".

    Can't really make such broad generalisations. Even if at the state level politics impose/dictate less stringent gun control/laws/rules, a large part of the "gun friendliness culture" has to do with the people living in it. And as individuals are different, so are collective towns/counties/cities, etc etc.

    Hey majic

    Does Virginia honor other states' concealed carry permits?



    I vote for Kentucky. We honor all permits from other states, although not all states with permits honor ours.:cuss:

    There's a lot of discussion on this on the Free State Project Forum. Alaska just adopted Vermont carry, which I think moved it up to the top.

    Kentucky Buck,
    We honor about 13 or 14 states permits, but unfortunately Kentucky isn't on the list (I think) even though you honor ours.

    telomerase has spilt the beans:D

    Alaska now has Vermont style carry in addition to the AK CHL and open carry. Honors CCW permits from every state that issues them. No restrictions on firearm sales/possession/types other than those imposed by the great benevolent father in DC. The same goes for Class III weapons and most Trooper Detachment commanders and police chiefs readily sign off on Class III applications. If one don't, the other will.
    State Constitution wording was ammended a few years ago clarifying the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms" as an individual right.
    State legislature along with local governments have passed resolutions condemning the USA PATRIOT Act ordering local and state law enforcement not to cooperate with the feds in Patriot Act investigations (Anchorage Assembly most recent).

    Things left to do:

    1) Get the legislature to pass a resolution similar to the one passed by Montana recognizing the importance armed citizens aka the militia, play in Homeland Security throughout the state.

    2) Boot the Nazi Park Circus out of the state.

    3) Take back land stolen by Jimmy Carter and congressional thieves through ANILCA.

    4) Boot most of the Forest Circus, BLM, USFWS, and FAA and make them find real jobs.

    5) Round up all the Enviro-Nazis and send them to ANWR for a primitive summer camp without mosquito repellent.

    6) Commence punching holes in the 1002 (area # may be off) in the swampy, mosquito infested piece of real estate formerly known as ANWR, and let the black gold flow after Enviro-Nazis leave their summer camp (without mosquito repellent).

    7) Welcome our Free State Project brothers and sisters to tie up any loose ends.

    tiberius,

    I was at the Alamo..

    and two guys at a bar across from it, (actually, it was around the corner) open-carried what has got to be, one of the biggest revolvers I've seen. Looked like 8" revolvers to me.. The barrel tip was almost to their knees..

    I asked the cop I was talking to, if open carry in TX was legal. He said no; but then he said "I'm not going to arrest someone for having a gun on his hip next to the Alamo!" I thought that was very cool..

    Alaska.. beautiful place; I'd love to visit..

    Of course, I often wonder about some of the intelligence there (no offense) but one of the brochures I was reading; it said "please do not shoot at bears with handguns". and then went on detailed explaination of how "firing something like the standard 9mm caliber pistol will usually not kill a bear or wound it.." :rolleyes: If you think a 9mm is going to do an Alaskan black Dakota, you are dumb and deserve to be eaten..

    Greeting's All-

    While its not bad here in Alabama; you've gotta to LOVE
    the new law in the great state of TENNESSEE, that our
    friend peashooter spoke of. My wife and I have
    family and friends in the Seiverville area, whereas we
    travel a lot; so the new law really serves me well!;) :D

    Best Wishes,
    Ala Dan, N.R.A. Life Member

    Twoblink,

    Dude, how old are you???? :)


    Seriously, that was a funny comment from the cop, but I'm sure the guys you saw were LEOs also.

    Also, Just curious....Where is Jung He City? Over that past 10 years or so, I have spent a considerable amount of time in Taiwan, mostly the Tai Chung area, on businees, but am not familiar with Jung He.

    Go to the Brady Bunch's website thingy and see how the states rank. Their worst are our best.:D

    Arizona, Idaho, Alaska, Wyoming, Tejas (lot of carry restrictions but has the rep thing going and if Texicanos make the Left mad, they make me happy), Joe-juh, Land of Orange (ammo tax thingy), Ol' Kentuck, Indiana, Penn's woods (state, not the cities), New Hampshire, Vermont are all good.

    I'm not from there, and maybe I'm oversimplifying, but I'd think VERMONT would be the friendliest, given they believe the 2nd Amendment is better than a carry permit.

    From what I hear Arkansas is gun-firendly on paper, but politically it sucks.

    2nd Amendment from Arkansas State Constitution: "The citizens of this state shall have the right to keep and bear arms for their common defense."

    From a gun standpoint TN looks pretty good, but I hear yall are taxed out the wazzoo. How many liberals you have out in those parts? I have 2 aunts that didnt seem that liberal before but it has really come out in the past year. They have been in TN for almost 20 years now.

    Later,

    CRUSHER, if you are going by reciprocity as your sole factor, then Indiana wins. Indiana honors all other states AND foreign countries.:cool:

    I love Virginia.....

    well, I have to cast my vote for my neighbors to the south - if only because they are so close to, and share a major metropolitan are with, THE POLICE STATE OF MARYLAND ---- and still are fairly rational about firearms.

    I have a Utah concealed carry permit (which can be obtained by Marylanders without leaving the state) and it's recognized by the fine state of Va.

    sorry for the biased vote, but you all understand....

    No one's mentioned it yet, but I hear Long Island isn't too bad. Places outside of New York City I hear are fairly decent...but I'm told you can't carry in the city from Long Island. Not sure how much is accurate...

    Throw out Cleveland, Cinci, Toledo and Columbus- - oh yeah,, Kent (home of Kent State) and their ban on barrel lengths of 2 1/2 " and under,,,throw out the lack of CCW,,throw out the classification of a 30 round magazine as being a Machine gun,,,,throw out the crime of "possesion of criminal tools" (What's defines a "Criminal tool? - Whatever they say can be used to commit a crime,,,basicly anything ),,,throw out the RINO's we have,, and Ohio isn't too bad. No scratch that,,Ohio still sucks despite the somewhat low score Brady gives it....

    jeeze,,,I agree with Brady on something,,,(Ohio deserving a low score),,, :barf: ,,,,glad I'm old and going to die soon...

    Don`t forget Georgia!

    Easy to get CCW, reciprocity with many states.
