    "Washington, DC Most states have weak or non-existent gun laws, helping feed the illegal gun market..."

    My state, Kansas, earned 7 out of 100 points; unremarkably, California scored highest with 79 points.

    Funny how states with higher "points" usually end up having more crime...

    Kentucky's score is 2. For once a low score for Kentucky is a good thing. Glad to be in the Bluegrass.

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

    No suprise there.

    Texas needs to work harder. Only 23rd place? That's like halfway down the list. I'm sure with a little work we could get our score from a 9 to at least a 2!

    MI isn't doing so hot...But I'll take reciprocity with just about every state as a bonus.

    I'm sure Virginia will drop after last week and this weeks legislative session. I don't think any anti gun legislation passed, and plenty of pro legislation passed.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
