Utah Catching Up
Guns & Ammo has rated DC and the fifty states by firearm ownership. Some of the criteria includes castle doctrine law and concealed carry. Arizona was rated as number one with a nine for concealed carry. Utah trailed in fourth with an eight in the same category but a current bill may soon change that.
Alaska (three) and Vermont (two) were inbetween the two with a 10 for concealed carry but trailing due to castle doctrine. I am happy to see NFA was added as a criteria.
