Vermont and Maine are liberal, but they have a lot of guns. So does New Hampshire. Rural areas with guns.
One of the most important factors in peace and domestic tranquility is the age of the population. Older is more peaceful. I wonder what the average age is of Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.

I'm guessing there are times in NE when even the most hardened street thugs get snowed in....
When off duty in Virginia, I used to carry my pistol at all times. I have seen plenty of violent crimes happen first hand while out and about in Virginia and DC, and I intervened in many.
Now that I live in Vermont, I don't carry a pistol anymore. I should, because anything can happen anywhere, but there is a very different vibe up here. It's true that there are robberies of drug stores and other businesses in Vermont (usually some 20-year old white guy trying to get oxycontin or money for meth), but it is nowhere on the scale of say, DC or Northern Virginia. Specifically, one could very well be dragged from their car and beaten in DC or Virginia for "disrespecting" someone or falling victim to road rage. I don't really see it up here.
I'll leave it to the reader to decide why Vermont feels so much safer.
Side note: I still have the Mossberg Persuader ready to go in the house. Sometimes "youths" come up from New York and engage in burglary sprees.
I’m not buying that.

Ho boy..another libtards scam group. I have more credibility in the Bud Light Institute.
I love living in Maine!
I’m out in the the country, all the neighbors are great!
Folks in rural towns here are armed, and the trouble makers know it.
Crime is very low.
Winters are tough up here, but the below zero weather
get rid of the riff raff.
You see somebody out in that weather, they’re most likely a friend!
Portland, Lewiston, and Bangor can be trouble spots.
Lewiston had a huge influx of Somalians awhile back.
It’s a PITA to shop in Portland, lots of pan handlers abound.
Bangor has a huge mosque now.
Lots of libs and airy-fairies living there, too.
Nuts and berries types.
At least where I live, all the nuts are in the trees!
Land around here is bring snapped up by folks who want to get away from dangerous cities.
Some are snotty and keep to themselves, most are pretty nice.
It IS peaceful here!
Northern Maine has remained sparsely populated, winters can be REALLY brutal up there.
It is beautiful country though.
Good place to raise kids.
And clinging to their guns and religion too!
I wonder if it ever occurred to the writer that Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire have high gun ownership and fewer regulations on gun ownership than most other states. So much for the liberal lie that gun ownership leads to violence.
