is only counting NICS checks. In states like AZ, CCW owners don't get NICS checked when purchasing firearms

I just got my CCP from Utah, and Nevada, I am looking at getting one from Florida and Texas as well. That should cover me for most of the states I plan on "invading".

California has 5,444 NIC checks per 100,000 population and is a no-issue state. Washington has 12,508 NIC checks per 100,000 population and is a shall-issue state. Yet the violent crime rate in California is 2.4 times what it is in Washington, though we beat up more people with our fists than California, home of the limp wrist. The question is, why is this so?

Answer,

no issue state + half the NIC checks = 2.4 X the crime.

I'd love to do a 50 state comparison, but I'm too damned lazy.

because the "government" classies my thought processess as terrorist in nature, I was just assuming going across state lines would be considered an invasion...

Utah and Florida actually cover the most, but I am missing missouri I think, I would have to check the map again. I had to get a nevada because they no longer acknowledge Utah. It is a goofy system where politics messes up a lot of our freedoms...go figure.

From what I have read,

you have to do your firearm course in the state of Nevada, seems like a pain in the ass.
