One point separated Alabama from Indiana on the just-released 2013 State Scorecard compiled by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, but that single point made all the difference.
Indiana was given a D- for the gun safety laws in their state. Alabama, with one less point than the Hoosier State, topped the list of the 26 states that received an F and flunked the Brady Campaign’s annual 100 point test.
In a report released with the scorecard, it is explained that the Law Center and the Brady Campaign join forces every year to rank each state based on 30 different criteria related to their regulation of guns and ammunition.
