most background checks for gun ownership by population

Most armed states from The Daily Beast. Interesting statistics. No wonder Kali right wingers are so rabid, they're surrounded by anti-gun nuts. Wisconsin ahead of Arizona? What's with that? Looks like my southern Illinois brethren are well armed. Connecticut? Really? Arizona at 41? Whodathunkit? New Hampshire? Live free or die, baby!

Just a guess but it could be the reason that for instance Wisconsin is ahead of Arizona for background checks for gun ownership is because guns are more common in Arizona and are Arizonians are already well armed. Arizona is a must issue state and they also allow open carry without a permit. Wisconsin is an "Anomalous Open Carry State". That means open carry is allowed but with a lot of grey areas that could cause the carrier a lot of trouble. Arizona is "Permissive Open Carry State" which basically means there are few restrictions. The link below provides more detail. Also must issue was just signed into law in Wisconsin a year ago this past June. Arizona passed theirs in July a year earlier than Wisconsin.

I hope Moonbean & Co. doesn't see this, they will be extremely unhappy at not being #50.

Delaware has open carry but we are one of the "Anomalous Open Carry States" so though we can open carry we have to be careful about where and when.

Interesting read but I find it hard to believe a true indication of most armed states. A lot of people carrying around here don't bother with permits.

If you have a valid concealed weapon permit, you don't need to have a background check done on a firearm purchase. At least not here in Idaho. That in effect would account for a lot more firearm purchases than what is shown by the NICS statistics.

Halloo. Definitely varies state by state. It'd be nice if all did.

Might be interesting to compare the background checks stats to gun murder rate stats.

Speaking of those types of stats, I ran across some very interesting murder rate stats the other day. In spite of all the propaganda put forth by the media and anti gunners, the U.S. actually is among the lowest in the world for murder rates. Ours is somewhere between 4-5 per 100,000 people. In a number of countries the rate approaches 50. Also, it's interesting to note that D.C. has among the highest murder rates in the U.S.. Yet there background checks aren't the lowest? Shouldn't there be an inverse relationship?

Surprised that DE is only 43rd. Background checks(instantaneous)are required for all firearms purchases from an FFL holder. Private sales exempted though, so that may have something to do with it.

What is the where and when? Do you prefer open carry or concealed? There has been discussion about open carry in Texas, but I'm not convinced that its the best thing,... particularly in metro areas.

Just for a second, try and clear your mind.
Imagine each of the planes on 9/11 being full of passengers even half of whom were openly carrying and proficient in the use of their firearms.
I realize the mere thought of this type of scenario sends chills up many folks' spines. And urinary incontinence.
Nonetheless, humor me and try to imagine how things may have been different that day.

Same in IA , or if you have a permit to purchase no background check. Reason being you already had one to get your permit , although you have to fill out paper work when you purchase at a retailer , so there's a paper trail that ties you to the firearm.

We also have open carry , personally I wouldn't , there's more down sides than pluses IMO.
