  • WAHOO! A score of ZERO

    The Brady campaign scored my state with a "0" for the 2010 report card! I love Utah!
    I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.

      While I am a supporter of gun rights, and a member of the NRA, I don't think that "0" is a perfect score. For example, their report card gives 2 points for requiring at least 1 security measure in gun stores. I think this is a good thing.....how often do criminal gangs get guns by robbing gun stores?

        Utah, Alaska & Arizona are all tied at 0 for "worst gun-safety laws" while California has the highest score of 80 according to the Brady Campaign (be still my heart...)

          The article should really be titled "Arizona tied for best gun safety laws in US".

            Agreed, but the newspaper isn't a conservative one - more liberal-moderate.

              YAY! I'm a zero, too!

              I knew I lived here for a reason....

              I like how they take a constitutional right and make it sound like a bad thing when people get to keep them, though....this country's media is not biased at all....

                  VA was a 6 or 7.

                  I was hoping for a 0.

                    The way I'm reading the chart, AZ actually has the worst rating of them all. We got zeros across the board and then got penalized -2 points for not requiring a permit to carry concealed. So technically, we wound up -2.

                    Alaska comes in at zero because they got 2 points for the college campus carry issue then got penalized the -2 for no CCW, bringing them in at zero. Utah got zero across the board but didn't get penalized for the CCW issue.

                    Booyah AZ, I love this state.

                      How can CA have the highest when other states require a permit for EACH gun. The only limitations I'm bent out of shape about in CA are the product restrictions, but ownership of approved guns is relatively easy. Also, if you know your way around the laws and how to work the system circumventing those product limitation lists can legally be bypassed.

                      So I can buy only 1 new gun every 30 days.
                      I can however buy as many used private party guns I want with no limitations.

                      So I can get that cool gun I wanted that’s not on the approved list.
                      I do however know where there are a few FFL manufactures in CA that will do a single shot conversion and sell me the gun as modified by law, and a bag of parts that it originally came with.

                      So there’s a handgun safety test requirement.
                      It’s an idiot test, lasts for 5 years, and isn’t a permit with limitations. It’s merely presented when I purchase any legal handgun I want and in any quantity I want.

                      So I can’t get that “black rifle” I want.
                      I can however essentially build one from the ground up.

                      There are very few CA gun laws that don’t have workarounds designed into them.

                        Can you please educate me on which state requires a person to have a permit for EACH gun?

                        Even in NY, (outside of the NYC area), long guns do not require permit/license. Once you have a pistol license/permit in NY State, you can own as many as you want, but we just have to make sure that these handguns get registered to your pistol license/permit.

                          That scoring system is really for criminals. States with 0 or lower scores are not criminal friendly states. States with higher scores are friendly to criminals as the government already have restricted their citizens from being able to protect themselves.

                            Being Utah State certified firearms instructor and living in NY, whenever I teach Utah Non-res firearms license course, students drool and envy people living in free state of Utah. Utah BCI folks are great and they have created such inviting/pro2nd amend. environment to all law abiding citizens with guns.

To purchase a handgun, a separate permit is needed from the local police department for each handgun to be purchased and expires after 90 days………….
