We often report on various states and cities that have strict gun control laws. We’ve mentioned cities like Chicago, New York, Baltimore and Washington DC to be among the worst. We’ve also mentioned states like New York, Colorado, California, Illinois, Maryland, Connecticut and Massachusetts to be the most anti-Second Amendment states in the nation. It’s really sad to include Connecticut in that list since they are the home to some of the nation’s first and most respected gun manufacturers.

But how does one go about determining which states are the worst for gun rights or is it just a matter of personal opinion? Do we only talk about the ones that seem to be in the news more than others or just those with higher crime and gun violence rates?

Gun Watch wanted to know the answer for themselves and decided to base their analysis on a few key questions. The first question they asked was:

“Do you have to ask government permission to purchase a firearm?”
