My answer is: Texas
Texas did not make this Top 10. We actually landed at number 12 of the 19 states that were not disqualified. Many of us hold out hope that we will finally see Constitutional Carry in 2021. That won’t push us to #1 but we’ll see top 5 when it happens. FWIW our legislature only does regular sessions in odd years. The second factor limiting our rank was cost of living and our population explosion is only pushing that higher so Top 5 is a stretch but it is within the Sphere of Possibility.
@JoeFridaySays’ Kentucky (my g’pappy and namesakes’s birthplace) carries the #1 Banner.
NOTE: I did a lot of editing to remove my political sidebars for y’all. PLEASE TRY TO KEEP POLITICS OUT OF THIS DISCUSSION.
