Spoiler alert: Not Massachusetts

After taking the top spot in “The Best States for Gun Owners,” Arizona tops the leaderboard once again. As a “Constitutional Carry” state, anyone 21 and over who can legally own a firearm can carry it concealed without a license. In addition, Arizona issues licenses on a Shall-Issue basis, allowing residents and non-residents to carry their weapons when traveling out-of-state. Arizona also has no duty to immediately inform an officer*, has excellent reciprocity and a Stand Your Ground law.

Honestly, between that and the 85° summers winters and super-deluxe gun ranges and the Mexican food, why live anywhere else?

* However, I *highly* recommend doing so, at it helps smooth out things in the long run.
