Still No Important Heat Maps On OCDO

After repeated requests to the admin of this board we still have no Maps for "Stand Your Ground" states, and States where No-Gun signs have weight of law. I would like to see a heat map of those rather than one that shows where you can own a machine gun, WTF? Handgunlaw has all the "Weight of Law" states listed, and a google search will reveal all the "Stand Your Ground" States. It's nice to know where you can own a machine gun, but this is primarily a carry site and the 2 subjects requested are more important IMHO.

From Wikipedia - Someone will have to do more research:
Adoption by States
31 States have some form of Castle Doctrine and/or Stand Your Ground law. Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming have adopted Castle Doctrine statutes, and other states (Nebraska, Virginia, and Washington) are currently considering "Stand Your Ground" laws of their own

Honestly now, why don't you do the work that you want someone else to do for you and submit the final result to the site admin for him to post?
This way you will then have what your are looking for. But be aware that some states have "case law" that equates to the same or better than Castle Doctrine Laws; Virginia being one of them.

But until then... http://bit.ly/wAt0Ic try the first link even though it is a bit wrong/outdated as a start.

Ya know, when I read the title of this thread, I was tempted to ask why OCDO would bother showing maps of areas of the country with normal, or abnormal rises in temperature.

But then I read the post.

And I'm still unsure of what it's about xD and what "HEAT" is :/
