Arizona, Alaska, and Utah are the winners in the Brady Campaign anti-gun rights sweepstakes for 2011. The anti gun rights organization annually rates all 50 states with a 100 point scorecard ranking on the basis of anti gun rights laws. These three states win for the least State interference in individual gun rights freedoms with 0 points each in 2011. California continues to blaze the trail by scoring 81 out of 100 possible points in repressive gun rights legislation. The rankings were based on gun laws passed by the end of 2011.

Here are all 50 states' rankings and the press release:

Good news for Arizona! We have been aiming for top score for years!

Georgia scored 8 points, so we need some work.

Massachusetts, formerly governed by Mitt Romney, scored 65 points.

Why is Mitt running as a Republican again?

We’ll assume Wyoming received a “0” score, since they didn’t make the list.....

Colorado scored 15 and I don’t see many restrictions here.

I have no interest in visiting any of the states that scored higher...

Dang ... my beloved WEST Virginia ranks a disgusting, disheartening, disreputable "4".

What do we need to change for a perfect "0"?

Move to Constitutional carry (permitless carry) and/or allow University carry.

Thanks for posting this. I can understand why the Brady bunch would not include DC. It would be the highest rated, and have the highest murder rate.

31 states with weak gun laws export 9 times the crime guns as states with the strongest laws

BTW, I currently favor “Alaska Carry” ... wherein a permit is not required, but shall be issued to those who request it. Said permit is useful when traveling in less enlightened States.

You can in Utah. A bill is pending in the Arizona Legislature. I do not believe you can in Alaska. However, Alaska and Arizona have Constitutional carry.

Why would Wyoming receive an Obama since they passed Constitutional Carry on July 1st of 2011?

Check the article....this is a Brady score card!

To them “0” is bad, 100 is good.

So, for you and I “0” is as good as it gets.

That goes back a ways.

Wyoming inadverently omitted. They racked up a whopping 4

I wish we could get to Constitutional Carry in Kentucky, but I doubt it will ever fly for simply one reason.....it would be a loss of fee revenue.

As far as I know, Vermont allows concealed carry without a permit. Open carry, etc. I live in NH, and it was a really simple process to get a permit to carry and it took 24 hours for them to complete my background check.

ya...me too...

I think is was a line in a ballad in the 50’s or 60’s, painting an image of a scene in a bar in the old West....?

Ah HA!

Spoof on “Big Bad John”!

The Ballad Of Irving - Frank Gallop

He was short and fat, and rode out of the West
With a Mogen David on his silver vest.
He was mean and nasty right clear through,
Which was kinda weird, ‘cause he was yellow too.

They called him Irving.
Big Irving.
Big, short Irving.
Big, short, fat Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

He came from the old Bar Mitzvah spread,
With a 10-gallon yarmulke on his head.* [see below]
He always followed his mother’s wishes,
Even on the range he used two sets of dishes.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sissy Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

A hundred and forty-one could draw faster than he,
But Irving was looking for one forty-three.
Walked into Sol’s Saloon like a man insane,
And ordered three fingers of two cents plain.

Irving.
Big, fat Irving.
Big sport Irving.
The hundred and forty-second fastest gun in the West.

How is Illinois still 35?

I’m still waiting for my FOID card I applied for in December.

NM got the same score.
I, too, am wondering what would need to change to get to 0.

Why is Mitt running as a Republican again?

So he can "stealth" his way into national power and sign a national, permanent so-called-assault-weapons ban just like he did in Mass.

The bill in AZ is dead as a doornail. Brewer got reelected, and no longer has to toe the conservative line. She vetoed that bill. I can’t drive on certain public streets in Tempe because I carry in my car, and that’s agin the law. Thanks Jan the Great.
