    Wow. I'm amazed to see Arizona so low on that list. (31%)

    It seems everyone and their cat is packing heat down here, especially with such citizen-friendly pro-gun laws.

    California, Illinois, Maryland and the rest of the East Coast are not surprizing. What I thought was interesting was Wisconsin at 44%. , Arizona and Florida were so low and Michigan at 38%... I wonder what the numbers would be if they figured in the illegal guns in Chicago and Detroit?

    [SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]In order to rally people, governments need enemies. They want us to be afraid, to hate, so we will rally behind them. And if they don't have a real enemy, they'll invent one in order to mobilize us.

    I'm suprised at Florida also. We had over 96,000 permit application in the first 6 months of this year and I think we are number two or three for permits per capa. Hmmmm....

    I was surprised at how low my state was. I thought sure Texas would be near the top of the list. I guess all those Californians fleeing their state and coming to Texas have not got their guns yet.

    West Virginia is 55.4 % and we have two senators who are anti-gun.
    If I knew how to send that link to Senators Byrd and Rockafeller I would.

    I'm surprised Mississippi doesnt have a higher percentage, that must be just the firearms they know about. And I know Florida and Arizona are full of snow birds,so that explains that. Liked Arizona gun laws,just didnt care for the desert very much.
