It's interesting that it's so easy to ridicule that with which we disagree but have no basis in fact with which to support our position.

Best regards,

Bob

"But "Injury Prevention," a scholarly journal, has released what may be the closest look yet. Their survey, published in 2015, asked a representative sample of 4,000 adults nationwide whether they own firearms. The findings helped the research group estimate gun ownership rates in each state."

Survey isn't a good hard indicator. Like polling, Hillary would've won by a landslide.
They might reject NICS checks but I think that's much more scientific than a survey. A bit more based in fact.

Live and love Florida! Wish it was better in some areas, but overall OK. People moving here in droves to get away from hight tax states; hopefully, they're not foolish enough to vote democrat/progressive now.

I thought Kentucky would be higher. Oh well if this were a ranking of the most gun friendly states we would be much higher on the list.
Oh, and now we’re about to pass constitutional carry too.

Born and raised in the People's Republic of New Jersey. Whereas New York outranks NJ, NY has a very large part of the state that is very Pro-gun and gets steamrolled by Albany and NYC. New Jersey is overwhelmingly anti-gun. The gun owning minority is looked down upon by politicians and elites. Dismissed as archaic Neanderthals, NJ gun owners are constantly crushed by a never satiated political machine that issues never ending laws that unlike California and NY are enforced and executed to the limits.
I moved to Texas after the NJ AWB went into effect and basically made me a felon overnight.
Imagine my surprise when candidates I voted for actually won!
Texas is now exploding in population.
While Texans welcome the flood of new citizens. A lot are vocal about keeping PC culture and liberal voting habits back where they came from.
I am thinking I will probably end up in Texas or Utah. I will definitely be picking my next state based on how conservative it is and how 2A friendly the gun laws are.

While Texas is overwhelmingly conservative, we do have a "little California" right in the heart of the state called Austin. I still remember the "Cocks not Glocks" rally there at the UT Campus...what a bunch of loons.

Ugh, such idiots.
I am sick of stupid Social Justice Warriors and their agenda.
Right?!?
Their arguments don’t even make a lick of sense. Anti gun professors were claiming that they feared some crazed CCW student would stifle discourse cause they could be set off.
First, CCW carriers have gone through background checks and studies have proven CCW licensees commit less crime significantly as compared to non-CCW people.
Second, if students are that unstable, wouldn’t a person bent on shooting up a classroom be unfazed by any law restricting weapons on school property?
