"It also has a lower gun ownership rate than other states, with estimates suggesting 36 percent of residents have a gun — compared to the national average of 39 percent.

"In second place was Louisiana, which has lax gun control laws and a high ownership rate of 52 percent. 

"Illinois, which has tight gun control laws and low gun ownership, came IN third on the list. ...
