Brady Campaign's 2007 Scorecard

Well, it seems that the Brady Bunch has published their list of scores on state gun laws. Arkansas is tied for fourth lowest (best?) with five other states at 6 out of a possible 100. Go Arkansas! California ranked first with 79.

Frankly, some of these rankings defy logic. Vermont, Texas, and Florida all had higher scores than Arkansas despite laws such as permit-less carry, open carry, and castle doctrine that Arkansas lacks.


From the linked article: "Our gun laws are so weak that, in most states, there are few or no laws to prevent gun violence," says Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Thank God! Otherwise, the only ones to utilize gun violence would be those who willingly break the law, aka criminals. You know, those people that these laws are aimed at.

I swear, some people. Makes you wonder what happened to basic reasoning skills as a prerequisite for holding positions of authority/influence.
