    And yes I do feel sorry for our UK friends, used to chat with a few on a computer teckie board, they say the bad guys know exactly what they can get away with....and lookout if you try to defend yourself with a gun.

    And I'm glad the good ol' USA is #1 in some catagories!

    Back in the early days of America you had to have a gun just to survive. Gun's are a tool plain and simple. firearms don't hurt people, people hurt people.

    I'm waiting for someone in the administration to make the mistake of trying to defend Fast and Furious by taking the position that the program was not responsible for Brian Terry's death, that it was the fault of the drug cartel folks who attacked him. Then Wayne LaPierre can go on the national news and say, "So, let me get this straight, it's the official position of the administration that guns don't kill people, people kill people?" Gotcha!

    Speaking of gotcha, does anyone realize that Obozo just stepped into a big steaming pile of **** by trying to absurdly invoke executive privilege? You can't DO that unless you are INVOLVED. Uh, oops.

    He's far too stupid to be a president. If that offends anyone, you only have yourself to blame.

    Switzerland also has the one of the lowest crime rates in the world. Correlation? and I'm not a fan of socialism but the Swiss government provides ammunition for target practice, sounds good to me.

    Hey wv,

    None surprise me at all except Utah #2 and not a bit lower but I've talked to friends that say a lot of Utah college students have CCW permits.

    And where's OHIO? mjp

    We're number 10! We're number 10! Why am I so excited? Because our state motto is "Thank God for Mississippi!" because they are usually the only state ranked below us in almost every poll!

    Actually, that list doesn't mean anything.

    First, it's the states that had the most call-ins in a two year period.

    Most states, if you have a carry permit, a call-in is not required. So, Utah, for example, had 30,000 call-ins per 100,000 residents, but might have had another 150,000 people with permits buying, with no call-in required, so they are not on the list.

    And then there are the states like Florida, who don't use NCIS, but instead use their own system (Florida calls FDLE - Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement), so they aren't on the list.
