Not only do Brady’s “best” states have low levels of gun ownership, but they averaged relatively high levels of violent crime and murder. More interesting is that in 2001, 10 of 12 states in the B+ quartile were not Right-to-Carry (RTC), while all 10 states in quartile 4 were RTC.

In practical terms, Brady’s criteria for “sensible gun laws” translates into less civilian gun ownership and an inability for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves against violent criminals.
