I thought that I would share something that I recently came across that I feel would be useful to our freedom-appreciating 2nd amendment community here at OC.org
is the original article which quite obviously was written by a liberal author. This article referred me to the published study that is being discussed (The nationwide Freedom index report), which is available at this URL:
The report's criteria for freedom ratings/rankings is done through a Libertarian perspective.
Be advised, there is a lot of information in the report but its a great resource if you plan on moving to another State anytime soon. It seems dead on for the States where I have recently lived, and where I am currently residing.
