    Where does YOUR state rank?

    Firearm ownership rates by states. Not too surprised but Alaska has the highest rate.

    31.2% for Oklahoma? No. It's higher. We just don't advertise. It's tactical.

    Alaska is too high, however it's not surprising as you said. My state is at 19.8%

    Since I claim ID as my home now I'll say 56.9% (https://magicvalley.com/news/local/g...f57a50b04.html). Along with that they have a homicide rate that runs around 2 (https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s...tables/table-2), roughly on par with the city of Seoul (http://thedailyviz.com/2016/05/24/mu...s-south-korea/).

    Running off on a tangent: ID has less than 2 million residents. Seoul proper has over 10 million. The greater Seoul metro area has something like 25 million. Yet Seoul has right about the same homicide rate as the rest of the ROK. It wasn't until I spent some time there that I really begin to question the standard US narrative that "well of course DC or Chicago has a higher homicide rate, they're big cities after all".

    I am not surprised Florida came in 27th, in the middle.
