Brady Campaign Scorecard – Flip it and Reverse It

The Brady Campaign came out with their 2008 State Scorecard today. The scorecard ranks all 50 states as determined by how close they stick to Brady’s common sense gun laws.

I’ll leave it to you to decide if being at the top of the list is a good thing or not, but it seems to me that those states at the bottom have a generally smaller problem when it comes to crime committed with firearms.

Turn the scorecard upside-down, and you get an accurate ranking of true common sense gun laws—where law-abiding citizens have the right to defend themselves and their families from criminals who show little respect for any gun law—”common sense” or not.

That puts the following in our top three (including several ties)—congratulations to:

  1. 2- Oklahoma
  2. 2- Louisiana
  3. 2- Kentucky
  4. 4- West Virginia
  5. 4- Utah
  6. 4- North Dakota
  7. 4- Missouri
  8. 4- Alaska
  9. 5- Mississippi

* Numbers are calculated out of a high score of 100

You’re all doing something right.
