    I don't know about other states but the questions are worded piss-poorly for Washington.

    Regardless, I aced it....100%.

    Quiz - Oregon Gun Laws gQuestionList.WriteHTML(); That answer was not correct.
    The correct answer to:
    May the police limit carrying concealed handguns?
    is:
    No

    Montana's a nice, resounding "NO" to each and every question.

    Each state's answers are different for the same 10 questions .

    Does anyone else hate the confusion of each state's gun laws ?

    Then again each state being different is a better defense !

    I've taken this quiz before (Virginia) and take exception to the question: Are background checks required at gun shows? Their answer is no.

    I've written to request this be corrected. Big surprise- no response and the same wrong answer appears.Intentional disinformation?

    Yeah, I took exception as well. Seems to me someone has an agenda.

    Ambiguous question. Made me miss one. Are background checks required for privAte gun sales? Answer was yes.
    Only for hand guns. I answered no, most gun purchases are for long guns so that's what I went with. I knew Pa law but I guess they don't know how to ask a question.

    Louisiana defintely has a wrong answer it.

    May the police limit carrying concealed handguns?

    They say the answer is "NO"

    Yet Article 1, Section 11 of the Louisiana State Constitution states;

    ยง11. Right to Keep and Bear Arms

    Section 11. The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged, but this provision shall not prevent the passage of laws to prohibit the carrying of weapons concealed on the person.


    See ?


    Well the police can't but the State can.

    SC: "May police limit carrying concealed hand guns?" The answer.com is incorrect.

    Generally it is illegal to carry a gun in SC with some exceptions such as with a concealed weapons permit. You will be charged with a gun violation if caught CCW without a permit just as for OC.

    I started it for NC -

    Is there a waiting period for handgun sales? Answered no, said I was incorrect. A *permit* is required - either a purchase or concealed carry permit, but there's no waiting period of which I'm aware.

    Are background checks required at gun shows? Answer: from a dealer - yes, from a private individual, no. For private handgun sales a permit is required. (I answered no, since it's not always true).

    Based on this and feedback from others, methinks there are more than a few errors in this quiz...

    I don't know of any states that allow the police to limit anything. Their job is to enforce, that's all.

    Anyway I've ran into that quiz before and, like others have said, it is poorly worded and sometimes just plain wrong. It doesn't differentiate between handgun and long gun sales, and it's obvious that the author has a very narrow concept of firearms laws in general.

    I've thought about writing up a quiz about where you can and cannot carry a firearm in NC, but then I decided that no one would want to go through a 150+ question quiz online.

    Only got a 60% and, unless someone can prove otherwise, it's the test that's wrong.

    Not to mention the questions are vague and worded poorly.

    Waiting period on gun sales? Test says, yes. Correct answer is no, if you have a permit, and yes if you don't have a permit.

    Required to registser all guns with law enforcement? Test says, yes. Correct answer is no, if it's a private sale of a long gun, and yes if it's a pistol.

    Are background checks required for private sales? This one is all over the place. Test says, yes. Correct answer is no, if it's a long gun. Pistols must go through an FFL and a background check will be performed in that case.

    As for police limiting concealed hanguns... as someone else said, the police don't limit anything, the law does. OC is also legal here, so if that's what that question meant then it is also wrong.

    Got 80% 2 confusing Questions on Connecticut1 the waiting period depends on if it is a Rifle and you do not have permit there is a waiting period, second registeration, according to their site on DPS it says that rifles do not have to be registered. Or did I read wrong?

    Crappy questions for Michigan as we have different laws depending on if it's a long gun or a handgun. The questions use the term "guns" to cover both. You don't need training in Michigan to buy a handgun, yet this quiz says you do. Just one example of the poor quality of this test.

    80% (AZ), but one of the questions was ambiguous, at best. "Are NICS checks required at gun shows?" Answer on site is no, but the deeper answer is that if the gun is sold by a licensed FFL, then the answer is yes. The fact is, the vast majority of guns sold at a gun show are sold by FFLs.

    Now, I think I heard somewhere that using NICS wasn't actually REQUIRED in Arizona (though I've never heard of any FFL that DIDN'T use it everytime), but I haven't been able to find any information on that anywhere. If true, then the question is still valid.

    Regardless, the question seems meant to use the connotation of the "gun show loophole" to at best confuse, and at worst, to completely mis-respresent the current law.

    Well the AL was wrong, big surprise there I guess.

    Police can limit my carrying, Hahhh, they can only arrest me after the fact!
    The sheriff can limit my ability to CC only.
    You might be able to argue the police can fabricate a crime, and you then
    loose your right to carry, but I doubt this was what the question is looking at.

    But on the plus side they said that my child can have a full auto, where I
    need a fed tax stamp.
    Said there are no firearm restrictions on minors. So guess my kid is getting
    an assault weapon for christmas, just hope he lets his ol man fire it now and then.

    The California Test has two incorrect answers:

    Q: Is it required that you register all of your guns with law enforcement?

    No, you are not required to register any of your long guns.



    Q: Is a license or permit required to buy handguns?

    No, you do not have to have a license or permit to buy a handgun.

    Colorado's would be good if they had the right answers. BG checks are not required on private sales and the State Police have nothing to do with NICS checks. After the second wrong answer, I quit.
