    Oregon is still a C- and I don't think we'll ever get it to the glorious F- but we can only keep on trying

    The only reason that we're not lower is due to the stupid "gun show loophole" law that was passed.

    But I did notice some... untruths. We got points for not being allowed to let children under 18 have guns which is not true. They can have them just can't buy them. They do have to be supervised when using but that's the case in most states (even Florida).

    I noticed that the murder capitals of the US got A's again... they must be so pround.

    Really bugs me that this ''grading'' bears NO relation to crime statistics etc - which as we know broadly are reflected as low by CCW status for most part. Total non issue states are overall way higher.

    But Brady et al - seem never to consider what really matters, other than their ''agenda''

    I am proud to be in the ''bad'' category

    SAME OLD SILLINESS, DIFFERENT YEAR--
    Brady Campaign's Latest Annual "Grades" for State Gun Laws

    Every year since 1997, the Brady Campaign, previously known as Handgun
    Control, Inc., has "graded" the states on their gun laws. It released
    its 2005 grades on March 9, 2006.

    Brady's premise is simple. It supports gun prohibition and laws that
    inch closer to gun prohibition, so it naturally believes there are not
    enough gun laws. In the group's press release announcing its new
    "grades," its chair, Sarah Brady, says, "we have done almost nothing, at
    the state or Federal level, to make it harder for either a terrorist,
    garden variety armed robber, or young person to get their hands on a
    handgun." This is an incredible statement, given that the Brady Act,
    for which the group claims credit, requires a criminal background check
    on anyone who purchases a firearm from a firearm dealer, and given the
    fact that there are many other federal and state gun laws.

    Brady's approach to its "grades" is equally simple: the fewer a state's
    restrictions on guns, the lower the grade, and conversely, more state
    gun control laws equate to a higher grade. This year, Brady gives 32
    states an "F" or "D" (10 "Fs" and 22 "Ds") and the average "grade" for
    the 50 states is a "D+", about the same as in previous years.

    However, there is no correlation between Brady's grades and violent
    crime or firearm-related deaths. For example, six of the 10 states
    Brady gives an "F", and 13 of the 22 states Brady gives a "D", have
    violent crime rates below the national rate.

    There is also no correlation between Brady's grades and trends in
    violent crime or gun-related deaths. Since 1991, violent crime has
    declined every year, 39% overall, to a 30-year low (and murder has
    declined to a 39-year low), and since 1993 the firearm-related death
    rate has decreased 32% among the whole population and decreased 63%
    among children. Yet, as noted, Brady's grades are essentially unchanged
    from year to year, mostly "Fs" and Ds".

    Had two kids in private Miami schools in the 80's and 90's. It was the only way to go. Took all most of the wife's pay check.

    rwmorrisonjr... i don't have a direct link. i heard about it at work and went here www.bradycenter.org. they have a list of all states in addition to their usual bovine scatology.
    you go to the top of the page and click on brady campaign and you can find the list.

    I guess we have to settle for a D rating. Actually glad I checked that sight. I was under the impression that I could not carry on any school campus... Turns out, I can on a college campus as a permit holder.

    THANKS BRADY CAMPAIGN!! For clearing that up !

    The Great of Texas got a "D-" I guess we're "challenged" in some areas. Gotta work harder on that "F"! Remedial, anyone?

    I just found it, CO got a "D"!!! Hooray!!!! We need to keep striving for excellence and get that coveted "F-"! Sadly, the state I'm leaving, VA, only got a mediocre "C-", need to work on that.
