It’s funny that while the Brady’s publish scores to ‘shame’ states, they do a terrible job of it. I look at Utah’s goose-egg as a badge of honor!
One thing I am noticing, though… each year, the number of blue states gets smaller and smaller. I call that a nationwide victory.
“Disarm Prohibited Handgun Possessors” What does that mean? It sounds like it means if someone is a prohibited person, is it illegal to possess a handgun? Well… yes it is. That’s FEDERAL law. I wonder how this is skewed. Note to self: Must research this!
“Gag rule on doctors” Isn’t Florida the only state that can possibly earn those 2 points? And by earn, I mean sum it by -2.
I’m wondering how long before politicians start using the Brady Score numbers as a badge of honor, lower = better. Perhaps states themselves will use the Brady numbers in the SAME way to convince people to move TO those states with the better (read 0) scores.
It’s only a matter of time and I hope Utah is right up there.
