I was on the Brady website today to see what they had to say about the Supreme Court ruling when I ran across this: Utah only scores a 4 link

:ROFL:

Illinois scored a 28, New York a 51, and California a whopping 79! :(

I remember this from a few years ago. I think we were higher then like at a 7. Glad to see we are getting better. Must have been from Shurtiliff smacking down the U on the CCW policy.

Only two small tweaks and Utah will have a perfect score!

Utah got two points for not forcing employers to allow guns. I think the parking lot bill may qualify, if that gets passed. We also got two points for not having a "shoot first law", but I think that's mostly an error on the Brady Bunch's part. We don't have an explicit "stand your ground law", but we do have most of the typical "castle doctrine" in our homes, and we also explicitly do not have to retreat in any place we have "entered or remained lawfully".

Maybe we should write the Brady Bunch and get them to fix the "shoot first law" score? That'd put us in a three way tie with Kentucky and Oklahoma for the lowest score. And then if the parking lot bill gets pushed through -- and if the Brady Bunch counts that on the "No Guns Allowed in Workplace" category -- then Utah would be the only state to have a perfect score!

The only thing holding OK and KY back is that they don't allow guns on university campuses. Utah's the only state that can claim that, as yet.

Is it possible to get a negative score? :raisedbrow:

Maybe there are bonus points? -2 for open carrying, -1 for using a gun for self protection, etc. :D

I knew we were bad but I didn't realize we were the poster child for these folks. :shocked:

A few more crazy gun laws and we could be perfect!

Utah is looking more attractive all the time!

Low scores on the Brady Campaign's web site should be considered a badge of honor. High scores should be considered presumptive evidence of tyranny.

We need to work on this score. Oklahoma and Kentucky scored 2. I guess 4 is still good. :D
