    So I'm a bit insulted here...

    http://www.bradycampaign.org/stategunlaws/scorecard/VA/

    First of all... we don't have 12 points, we have 9. Second, why doesn't OC give us bonus demerits? >=(

    Oh well, at least Sarah can rest easy knowing you need a CHP to carry while bow hunting. Should be good for at least 6 points.

    They have to be widely misinformed. I thought for sure Illinois would be their gold star state.

    That is obviously out of date as we are no longer limited to one handgun per month - so the most we qualify for is 9 points.

    From what I understand IL is somewhat sane aside from Chicago.

    Of course they're misinformed. They're the Brady campaign, right?

    Doing a little research this is what I came across.

    http://www.concealcarry.org/illinois-carry/

    There is alot to try to quote on that page alone. In short it seems like they are using a loop hole to be able to CC. As far as I can find so far all they have in IL is FOID (firearm owners identification) cards. It is my impression that the state all around is a right denied state with very few/restrictive exceptions.

    I'm appalled, perhaps even a bit ashamed. VA is a 12 on the Brady list? I won't rest until we're at absolute ZERO! Maybe even in negative numbers. We've got some work to do. I hope everybody else is with me.

    I'm surprised California ranks higher then the Democratic People's Republic of New Jersey. or New York. NJ laws are extreme, and in New York you cannot even touch a pistol not registered to you. from what I understand if you have a gun registered in NY and your friend from Conneticutt comes to visit, your friend is committing a crime if he borrows your pistol to take the range. even Cali doesn't do that. I think that the brady map is rigged. Washington has 14, and I think that's only because Washington has some gun store regulation that involves keeping sale records (which shops already do under federal law) and the three day waiting period. if not for those WA would be 6.
    they love our milk and honey, but they preach about some other way of living, when they're running down my country man they're walkin' on the fightin side of me

    Utah is blessed with a "Brady" score of "ZERO". We are actively working on getting into NEGATIVE numbers from the Brady's!

    Just a little brag here! Enjoy!

    I'm pretty proud that Oklahoma has VA beat. We scored a 2. Too bad they don't factor in OC, we could drop even further after Nov 1.
