The 5 Easiest States to Own a Gun

All states in America can make their own gun laws. It’s not regulated, in general, by the federal government. With that being said, even though the states come up with their own laws, there are some that make it easier to own and carry guns, more so, than others. Do you live in one of those states with beneficial laws for gun owners? If so, you’re lucky. 

Some states, like California, New York, or New Jersey make being a law abiding gun owner much more difficult, expensive, and outright time consuming to get all your permits squared away. It’s not very fair, and definitely not inline with what the Second Amendment declares for the “right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

The Reasons These States Are Supportive of Gun Rights

In looking at the ranking of all 50 states, the ones who come out on top in support of gun rights do so for a few different reasons. For one, they don’t require any waiting period to purchase a firearm from a gun shop. Two, there isn’t any universal background check done on their citizens who are in the market to purchase any firearms. Third, they allow open carry without a license. Finally, all of these states have the option for constitutional or permitless carry. You don’t need a separate concealed carry license. 

Furthermore, there isn’t any gun bans on certain weapons or capacity limits. Keep in mind that some of these laws deal with residents of the state only and not visitors. So check with the state laws before you travel anywhere with your firearms. 

The Best Gun States

#1: Alaska- This state may seem like a whole other country. They are so permissive with their gun laws since many people hunt in this state. If you are legally allowed to possess a firearm, you can pretty much do so without restrictions or permits in Alaska. 

#2: Arizona- Out there in the desert, they are adamant about their gun rights. You can even start to open carry at 18-years-old. Although, you do need to be 21-years-old to conceal carry in Arizona. They followed the lead of Alaska in constitutional carry after they made it legal, being the second state to do so. 

#3: Wyoming- Another state with vast open spaces and abundant wildlife is Wyoming. Their gun policies fall inline with Alaska and Arizona. Just recently, as of July 2021, Wyoming now allows visitors to have the same rights regarding concealed or open carry (permitless) as residents. 

#4: Montana- It just seems like the states way out west in America have it going the right way regarding their gun laws. Montana included. Even though it’s true, like in most places, you can’t carry in certain buildings like schools, that doesn’t include colleges or universities. As of June 2021, concealed and open carry is allowed on those campuses, but you need to have received some kind of firearms training even though a permit isn’t required. 


#5: Idaho- This state is pretty much the same as the others. They even allow for the open carry of long guns in public. The only difference in this state is that they have a “body of men” exclusion for open carry except in some circumstances. You can’t be strolling along armed to the teeth with a group of people. That does seem kind of menacing, if you are walking around a city, instead of out in the woods hunting.

  1. Maybe if We turn NJ to a Red State We can talk some sense into these politicians. Most people do not realize how dangerous certain places in NJ can be especially at night. In Lakewood & Howell we have had an increase in attempted robberies of Store patrons at night – also attemted rape in Lakewood.So due to the fact I live in a Blue State that means I forfeit my Constitutional Rights given me by The Constitution. I argue that according to The Constitution the 2nd Amendment says it shall not be Infringed – so how do brain damaged politicians get away with doing the oposite – there need not be any discussion whatsoever – I want to protect myself out in public and my family at home – I carry in public and it is ready at home – end of discussion – go away ignorant politicians. I do not understand why we let them continue to get away with this – costing We the People huge sums of money to fight for something we already have – The Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

  2. I agree 1000% with Capt G. I would rather go to court to unnecessarily explain why I shot the criminal raping my wife, than have to go to her funeral.

  3. Politicians Will claim that they are “protecting the public” but the only thing they really want to protect is power OVER the people. The anti-gun states have no interest in protecting any private citizen from anything. A good prosecutor – there are some – will respect and protect our Constitutional Rights. Ones like the Kenosha DA need to be voted out pronto because their only interest is a higher office and more power.

  4. I grew up in New Jersey and lived in California for over forty years. Finally, left the left state to live in Arizona where
    you can open and conceal carry a weapon. All I can say to Capt. G. is get the people to vote them out or move
    where it’s still a Red State….maybe Arizona might not be for long because two Democratic politicians are up against
    one Republican (if there is one) in 2022. I hope our state does not turn Blue because so many of the Californians,
    who are Dems are moving over here….and bringing their stupidity with them. God Bless America.

  5. It is much better being judged by 12 than carried by eight.

  6. THE ONLY REASON THERE ARE BRAIN DEAD POLITICIANS IS BECAUSE THE BRAIN DEAD VOTERS ELECT THEM!

  7. Instead of useless diatribe, try suing for Declarative and Injunctive Relief on every gun law.

    Seek to have them declared unconstitutional (as they are!)
    As it has already been established that these laws will likely be violated and likely prosecuted for said violation, ANY legal
    gun owner could make the necessary showing in this case!

    To go further, seek an injunction prohibiting any governing entity from enforcing these laws. It would be a no brainer to prove irreparable harm as in losing the right to keep and bear arms!

    For those already arrested on these illegal gun charges, the defense at trial would be the constitutional claim which a presiding judge is obligated to hear!

    Just a thought!
