Gun Laws in the 50 States and D.C.

While most Bill of Rights issues have been ironed out at the national level by the Supreme Court and applied to the 50 States (e.g. search and seizure, due process, etc.), the Court has studiously avoided so applying the Second Amendment. Therefore, gun owners have no local Second Amendment protection and are at the legislative mercy of their State, if not their county or city. This foments random peril for any travelling gun owner.

Anti Second Amendment State List

The list of Anti Second Amendment "Unfree states" - Nanny States was established by polling readers/listeners of conservative blogs, conservative podcasts, conservative websites, conservative forums, libertarian blogs, preparedness blogs, and Gun blogs.[1]

Below is the list with some of their gun grabbing Constitution violating, Oath-breaker liberal Democrat elitist politicians[2][3] politicians:[4]

"The East Coast and West Coasts had the most liberal states including Vermont, Massachusetts, Delaware, New York, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Maine, California and New Jersey." [6]

Advice from James Wesley Rawles of the Survival Blog

According to New York Times best selling preparedness author James Wesley Rawles of The Survival Blog in the American Redoubt, "Because most survivalists are gun owners, gun control laws should be considered a key factor when deciding where you plan to relocate. Do some research. Ideally, you are looking for a state that allows vehicular and “on the hip” open carry, with non-discretionary concealed carry permits, and with non-regulated private party firearms transactions. (No “paper trail.”)"

Mr. Rawles expands on specific progressive police states, "The worst states to for a gun owner to live in are of course the “Locked up and Unloaded” States such as "Neu Jersey" and "Kalifornia". According to the NRA-ILA, under California law, to legally have an unloaded handgun in your car outside of a locked container you must be going to or from a shooting range, to or from a gun show, or on a hunting trip. Otherwise, they must be both unloaded and locked in a case or in the vehicle’s locked trunk. (See California Penal Code sec. 12025 and 12026 for details.) I suppose that means that if you want to carry an unloaded handgun in your car and don’t want to have to spend extra time both having to take the time to get it out of a locked case AND then loading it, you should always carry a pair of earmuffs, some shooting glasses, and some targets in your car… “But officer, I was planning to go to the range after work!”"[7]
