A friend of mine found part of the Brady campaign's website where they gave each state a letter grade based on their gun laws, and decided to make a map of it, with the color of each state corresponding to their grade.

I thought you guys might find this interesting.

West Virginia is not as green as I'd like it to be
Link Posted: 3/29/2006 4:16:33 AM EDT
WTF? they got the colors backwards!
Link Posted: 3/29/2006 4:20:37 AM EDT
He he he... I think the colors are great! Red IS still the color of communism, isn't it? NO offense to our brethren in the occupied territories...

I knew I was living in a shitty state. This clinches it. Time to move... *sigh* I wish....

WTF is wrong with NC? I thought we would be greener than that. I mean I just saw a fellow ARFCOM member at a recent shoot with a terrible machine gun! He could spray and pray with it something fierce!

Don't you have to get some kind of special permit just to buy a handgun?

Ky is lookin pretty green.

We got an F from the Brady commies.

Dosn't F stand for Fantastic?

Not if you have a CCW!

Anyone else think Maryland looks a little funny?

Anyone have a link to a similar map graded by rates of violent crime? I'd bet they look pretty similar.

They obviously haven't heard about the disastrous 2nd Annual AR15.com "Boatstock" outing during which hundreds of firearms were lost in the Great Lakes.

While I haven't seen a map (someone should do one) I have seen a comparison of crime rates and Brady's grades. Quite revealing... the Brady F states generally had less crime, the A states more crime.

Just what Lott said, More guns, less crime.

That's funny. The lakes are green.

Lake Michigan is green, maybe its time to start looking for a houseboat...

Indiana is going to get alot greener...we just enacted a lifetime CCW.

Should have used: taupe, putty, beige, off white, sand, almond and tan. Much easier to understand that way!

Turn in your man card, you're only allowed to know the names of the primary and secondary colors.

Ok, this is kinda funny because as I hit 'reply,' I looked at a box of cereal on my desk and it has a US map on the side of it. The whole country is dark green... I'm having a vision...

Now let's look at crime statistics in those red states.

But I do like to stop by the Brady campaign website every now and then. They seem to think we're winning.

I've never heard of an F minus.

If HF2688 passes Iowa will be a shade or two closer to Green.

Here's a crime rate I found:
www.doc.state.ok.us/MAPS/incrimUS.htm

Unfortunately it does not support the overall conclusion about guns and crime (either way).

there is an interesting correlation between that map and this one.

not completely, but its nice to see the trends

Hey friends,

Here is a link to a relevant NRA fact sheet that deals with the Brady grading system. I'm sure that many here would enjoy looking through it for a bit, although this one is from '02 and therefore not currently accurate.

Calif is a red state.
Link Posted: 3/29/2006 8:21:13 AM EDT
Orange huh? While we don't currently have CCW, I think the orange rating is a little extreme. Don't tell the Cunt Campaign that though.

OK, I took the Brady Grades and state crime rates and dumped all the data into Excel and made a chart to compare the two. Here's what I got, and SURPRISE!!! Gun control doesn't work!

Hopefully Wisconsin will go to code green in November if we can get our piece of shit ass clown govorner, jim doyle, out of office.

Red means stop ... green means GO!
