    Perhaps. We'll see what happens after the cross-over committee assignments and votes. Senate Courts of Justice committee could kill most of it. At least we know what we have to work on. I'm sure we can make our score lower....

    No,
    I do not feel bad at all. Statistics are what they are any you can only read into them what you want. There are many factors that make up statistics. Some are based on demographics and some are actual accurate reporting by the reporting agency's.

    Missouri has a couple of large cities that historically have and do have crime. There is crime in rural counties as well.

    The majority of gun owning citizens are law abiding in the gun friendly state of Missouri.

    2A is your right. Do not let it be taken from you with conjecture, Internet rumors and slanted statistics.

    This type of banter does not go unnoticed.

    It is unfortunate, in my opinion that any forum moderator's have contributed to this thread.

    I would like to see this thread gone.

    It is fundamentally contrary to most of what we as gun owners and believers in our Second Amendment rights believe in.

    and those are by far considered the most "anti gun" states.

    No suprise there.

    I'm glad someone caught this, I was wondering about this. I knew California was up there.

    I think this just shows again what the Brady campaign is all about. Promoting anti-gun rhetoric.

    I don't mind 2 of those points, because a business is private property. A business owner should get to set the rules for his employees. IMHO. My employees are encouraged to carry however

    What about being able to carry in a restaurant that serves alcohol?

    I am honored that Az is among the least respected, by the the Brady fools.

    The biggest surprise to me on that list? PA got a 25 from the Brady's. I've been under the impression that they were one of the more "free" states, which generally gets a lower score on this kind of list.

    Now then, since I don't want to give their website anymore traffic than necessary, can someone who's already visited it explain to me how they were marked that high please?
