    I have this idea to start compiling information in preparation for gun control debates inevitably coming with the November elections. One such idea is to compare the Brady Report Cards with Uniform Crime Reports and information from the BoJS to see how the rank Brady gives each state compares to how it actually stacks up. I was thinking it would be even more interesting if the NRA also issued report cards on various states based on what gun control laws they do or do not have in place. I could then take the mean difference and compare them. But I've never heard of the NRA issuing such Report Cards. Anyone know if they do?

    I have to go to work or I would search their site myself...

    To me ,Vermont and Alaska get A-,s.A few too many off limits areas in VT.Same for AK and CCW age is 21 in AK.
    North Carolina has way too many OLA and other archaic rules,a C-,and that is being gracious.
    AK and VT(since 1902)are the standard and vanguard to build on,IMO.

    NRA doesn't really listen to members in this way. This is why it took a private individual to compile this information here.

    NRA also takes forever to release it's candidate ratings and to top it off, those ratings are only available to nra members (so much for caring about education and the wider issue of the second amendment).

    *sigh* That link only shows primaries and only becomes available a few weeks before an election. For some strange and annoying reason, nra refuses to just keep an ongoing rating system. It's not like that would cost any more than they already spend for someone to type a letter next to a name.

    NRA always waits until the fall to put out ratings instead of starting this process earlier when people are forming their opinions.

    I made this image to illustrate:

    I got the Brady grades and everything, but apparently, the 2007 UCR aren't out yet so doing what I wanted is out of the question, at least for the moment.
