    The text states that Colorado is 33rd in % of population owning guns; the graphic indicates 37th overall, probably slipped a few spots because of the new anti-freedom laws.

    Interesting read on where the states rank. My own state was 23rd which is about right.

    Georgia comes in @ 13. Humm, not bad, but thought it would have been in the top ten really.

    It's the OC component of their ranking system. You need a weapons carry license to OC, which is not true in some states. But if you look at the overall score (46 of 50, which is actually tied for 11th with SC, FL, and MT) it's still a pretty gun-friendly state.

    My state, Ohio, is 35 but North Carolina is (where I'm going to vacation) is 19. I'm no expert but I don't see how that can be. No permit is required in Ohio to purchase a gun and NC has some weird restrictions on concealed carry. In OH you can carry in establishments that serve liquor as long as you don't drink.

    No Castle Doctrine... killed the score with a 4 in that component. It woulda been Top 5 if they had Castle Doctrine.

    Unless the law changed, Vermont doesn't allow suppressors, but they gave the state a nfa of a score of ten. They shouldn't be rank two.

    Wyoming #6. I suppose we all can't be #1. Though interesting that we are #1 in gun ownership per capita. We love our guns here what else is there to say.

    #23 for Tennessee. Not the greatest, but not the worst.

    Okay... someone should have posted a slideshow warning on the link.

    I live in WA, and can't fathom how we made #40. I wasn't expecting #1, but I figured top 10, just below the "constitutional carry" states.

    My state right in the middle at #25. Need to get rid of the 48 hour waiting period especially if you're a permit holder.
