GUN RIGHTS BY STATE
Here is an interesting map that shows which states have the most “freedom” in different categories as determined by the CATO Institute… The category shown is gun rights.  Click here to be taken to the website where you can see other categories.  Oregon's Democratically controlled 2019 Legislative Session could have our once great state dropping all the way down to #50 on this map.
