Your information is seriously flawed. A well known fact and FBI record highly supports the notion that states with most guns and lax gun laws have a far lower gun crime statistic 'per capita'. States and metros with the strictest of gun regulation have the highest gun crime statistics 'PER CAPITA'
So you know, I am in Idaho, vast majority own/carry guns, constitutional means not even a permit to conceal carry is needed, no gun restrictions here, not even red flag laws. If you can legally own a gun, you are good to go. You want to carry your AR-15 or Barrett M-82 down the street, the cops here don't even look twice.
