Exclamation Best states for gun owners



Advertise Here

Got latest Guns and Ammo magazine. Among the 50 states, Hawaii--48; Oregon--33; South Carolina--22; Texas--10; Alaska--3; Idaho--2; Arizona--1. Six out of the top ten are western states. It is good to live and shoot in the West!

OP, do you have a link? Can't believe SC came in 22nd.

I would think all Constitutional Carry states would come in ahead of any Shall Issue states.

Over the past year, Kentucky went from 14 to #6. Wyoming went from 5 to 8. OK--5 Kansas----4; Utah-- 7; MT--9

You might just up Nov. 2019. I don't even know why I got the magazine. I have been trying to drop it for a year. I like Handgun magazine but I am more interested in revolvers. And almost every page is an advertisement.

Really depends on who's doing the data collecting & evaluation. Also varies year to year, but usually it's mostly the same states at or near the top, same with those near the bottom.

Generally those that are more conservative fair better for gun freedoms as well.

Alabama is #18. Bills to advance permitless carry failed to advance in 2019.

Missouri is the best if the best is defined as the most freedom to buy, sell, and possess firearms.
For many States, said freedom is too great and Missourians are denied CCW permit reciprocity.

I've noticed a trend or more of a bell curve with a race to either be severe anti-gun or severe pro-gun.

Last year several states (WY, OK, ID and maybe more) made big leaps toward pro gun with Constitutional Carry and other measures.

By contrast, several pushed mountains of gun control and became intolerable.

Every state should be good for gun owners ,it's just made bad by gun grabbing politicians.

How is Missouri better than all the other states in that way?

It has every freedom that any other Constitunal Carry State has and is the only State to allow 19 year olds to exercise Constitutional carry. As soon as my daughter turned 19, she was packing.
Find me another State that allows more firearm freedom.
This is none.

2019 was a banner year for me. I now live in the most free best state of the 9 I've lived in during my life. This year, I also moved from one of the worst to one of the best for gun rights!

I wake up thankful every day because of the blessings I experienced this year!

This information might answer your question. Still #4 is pretty darn solid.

"4. Kansas
Once again, a bill that would have expanded Kansasí recognition of out of state CCW permits didnít make it through the legislature this year, though the bill will carry over to 2020. Kansas gets full points in the CCW column with both Permitless Carry and a Shall *Issue permit system in place. It also receives ten points in the Castle Doctrine, Black Rifle and NFA categories. It loses a bit of ground in the Miscellaneous column, as it is tough to compete with the states ahead of it in terms of gun culture. (2018 rank: 4)

3. Alaska
Nothing much happened in 2019 in Alaska, but that is likely because the stateís gun laws are about as strong as it gets. Alaska has the highest rate of gun ownership in the nation, and was the first state to allow for both Permitless and Permitted Carry. Alaska canít compete with other states in terms of formal competitive shooting opportunities, but that is simply a matter of geography and population. From a pure statutory standpoint, Alaska is among the best states in the nation for gun owners. (2018 rank: 3)

2. Idaho
This spring, Idahoís governor signed legislation extending Permitless Carry rights to 18- to 20-*year-*old residents. Idaho receives 9.5 points in the CCW column since both residents and active duty military members can carry without a permit. Idaho also receives full points in the NFA, Black Rifle and Miscellaneous categories. Idahoís beauty has been discovered and the stateís population is growing fast ó hereís hoping that the state can maintain its pro-gun culture despite that growth. (2018 rank: 2)

1. Arizona
No gun bills, either good or bad, passed this year, allowing Arizona to maintain the top spot in our survey. Arizona receives 10 points across the board thanks to its Permitless- and Permitted-Carry laws, a strong preemption statute, excellent Use of Force laws, and a lack of restrictions on individual firearms and accessories. Places to shoot, both recreationally and competitively, are many and the state has a strong firearm industry presence. Gunsite, the mecca of defensive shooting, is just outside of Prescott. (2018 rank: 1)"
