Guns & Ammo magazine has ranked all50 U.S. states according to “gun-friendliness” and adherence to the Second Amendment.
From the Guns & Ammo website:
These days, it’s becoming more difficult for gun owners across the country to find safe haven, as the powers that be on both federal and state levels begin introducing a quagmire of anti-gun legislation hindering the rights of law-abiding citizens. States like Illinois are notorious for their anti-gun agendas, while states like Texas are viewed as a sort of shooters’ paradise.
But just how true are those reputations? To provide you, dear reader, with a primer of gun-friendly regions of the United States, we’ve analyzed all 50 states—and Washington, D.C.—and ranked them to find out which are the most pro-gun.
According to the Guns & Ammo website interactive chart, Texas ranks 15th in the nation; Arizona 1st; and Washing, DC, dead last.
