    We mention the tangible impact of gun control all the time. But perhaps these cities show some of the intangibles. Fewer guns = higher crime along with:
    ruder drivers, more corrupt disconnected pols, more badge-heavy police, more disrespect for law and order, etc...

    Too bad the article doesn't just go ahead and reference Lott and save us the bother.

    Compare the 10 most stressful to the 10 least.

    Personal responsibility, don't leave home without it.

    3out of the 4 least stressful, and 4 out of the 10 least stressful are in Texas. Probably because the recession is having a very little impact here because Texas is very business friendly and we are laid back folks anyway.

    I like to attribute it solely to liberal carry (albeit CC) and self defense laws!

    It'd be interesting, if someone had the time, to cross-reference this study with the overall freedom rankings of states from the George Mason study.

    I don't know about solely but definitely plays a part.
    No one has ever walked away from a gunfight complaining that he brought too much ammo.
