    So? Most states have this or that if you don't have a permit. Get a permit and be good to go.
    Face it the 3 best states are AK, AZ and UT. If AZ had different school carry laws and bar carry then the state would be great but they don't. As for AK I really don't know all the particulars of there laws as I have not had an opportunity to carry there and probably never will.

What good is constitutional carry if you can't carry in a restaurant that serves booze?
    You can carry in bars in AZ with a permit. You can't drink though

    I don't really know the laws but I think Alaska might beat the other States.

    AK, AZ, and VT. Believe it or not, TX isn't that gun friendly. Official "no gun" signs (30.06) have the force of law, permit wait times aren't all too quick, and there is no open carry.

    The latest state to get CC WISCONSIN, we have had OC for a long time. Over 120,000 conceal carry permits have been applied for in 8 onths. Permits for state residents only. They recognize many other states permits for visitors. May not be the top dog but we are way up there with our conservative governor. ( avoid the peoples republic of Madison and Milwaukee)

Doing this Arizona gets a 100, OK gets a 98, and my state NC is an 84. Find your state and see where you fit in according to the Bunch.

    Brady Scores By State

    Using the Brady scores (converted to gun-friendly) to settle the arguments above:

    AK 100
    AZ 100
    UT 100
    NH 94
    VT 94

    So nice try, New Englanders ... you just can't beat the Wild West for gun-friendliness.
    As much as I appreciate that PO-ing the Bradybunch should get serious consideration in the ranking, 4 of the points they give to VT are for private property rights (it's not that there are any anti-gun laws on the books).

    And in any case, given that they rank IL as only slightly anti-gun (35/100, or 65/100 on our scale)...

    But Wild West? I'll take VT's laws over those of TX any day.

    One issue I don't see talked about much regarding "gun friendly" is a state's statutory list of prohibited areas for carry. A state may have reasonable laws on the surface, but the prohibited list (and whether or not signs matter) plays a huge role in the day-to-day practicality of carry. For example, prohibiting carry in restaurants that serve alcohol (that would be nearly all of the non fast-food kind) even if you aren't drinking. Apparently the lesson of Luby's wasn't taken to heart in such states.

    I thought Montana was pretty high on the pole for top of gun rights champions, am I wrong?

    I haven't lived in Arizona but I have lived in Wyoming. I open carried there with out any problems at all. Even downtown Jackson at the height of tourist season. Walk in and purchase and walk out carrying.

    This is something I appreciate about Utah. I can carry in places that serve alcohol, I can have a drink or two and not have broken any laws. I can carry on school campuses (though the feds make me get a permit to do it). Signs have no weight of law. Public land and buildings are prohibited from enacting policies restricting carrying firearms, public employees included. And all this is backed by a total state preemption law. I basically never have to worry about where I am, or ever disarm because of a law. The only time I've ever disarmed because of a law here was entering a courthouse, and I haven't heard of anywhere that will let you do that as a civilian. I also don't have to tell every cop I meet that I have a gun, hehe. Bear in mind, if I didn't have the permit I wouldn't be able to carry chambered, but that is really the only restriction besides not being able to hide it, for carrying without a permit :)
