    Worst gun state poll

    In your opinion which is the absolute worst anti-gun state for legal gun owners in the United States?

    here in mass the gun must meet the ag rules as of 1998. it stinks because if it not on the list you can not own it.

    Right now D.C. has the worst. You can't have a handgun unless it was licensed prior to 1976. All long guns must be locked or disabled. In addition to the fact you can't even take the firearm from one room to another room in your own house!

    Hopefully, that will be corrected by SCOTUS this spring.......

    I heard most towns in Mass that issues CCW somehow restricts them
    By giving you a Class B , or a Class A with restrictions

    I'm going to say IL, simply because a very small part of the state (Chicago) controls the rest of the very blue collar/ agri state. I guess the same could be said about WI, but I think IL has worse laws.

    i voted other and picked Hawaii.
    because even though they are supposed to be a shall issue state, i think they have issued about 2 CHLs in the last 10 years and one of them was to the govenors daughter in law or some such notable. Hawaii is really an awful state for gun owners, they make it as hard as possible on honest citizens to own guns.
    look up their gun laws sometime.
    maybe someone from Hawaii will post.i know ILL. is terrible too but they at least don't claim to be a shall issue state.

    Yea, I work in Jersey and it sucks not being able to carry there.

    I heard a rumor that even an off duty jersey cop can't carry. Anyone know if it's true?

    It was at one time, but I dont think so anymore. Individual departments may decide, but as a state, I dont think they can do tht anymore.

    I'm going Ill, because it seems so wrong for a place with all that farming live so far left.

    When did DC become a STATE? If anything, it is a "state of confusion"!
