    Funny thing is that the all the states in the bottom 10 list are the hardest in which to get firearms.

    "#2 in Most Gun Sales: Wyoming
    Guns per 100 residents: 30.2

    Wyoming is a state with one of the highest gun ownership rates in the U.S. and one of the lowest murder rates. In 2007, Wyoming had 16 murders."



    "#6 Least Gun Sales: Maryland
    Guns per 100 residents: 1.4

    Sales may be on the low end now, but in 2005, Maryland had the highest rate of gun-related hospitalizations across the country, at 15.6 cases per 100,000 people, compared with a national average of 9.7 cases, according to the CDC."

    Makes ya wonder why people don't study this stuff before they have their knee-jerk reactions.

    It seemed to me the article was written from an anti-gun point of view.

    Aren't they always?? Most of what you will find online or newspapers will be anti-gun.

    The more gun friendly the state the lower the crime rate. This is just another case of don't let the truth get in the way of your agenda.

    I was surprised not to see Texas at least in the top ten most gun-happy. I guess the big cities skew the data from the rural folks...
