15 States with Easiest, Least Restrictive Gun Laws in America

Let’s read about the states with easiest, least restrictive gun laws in America. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about this topic. With the current state of affairs in America, gun laws are a major point of discussion, and with increased numbers of mass shootings and gun violence, the question is – what can be done to prevent it?

While some Americans believe that stricter gun laws will solve (or reduce) the problem, others believe that they should be able to arm themselves in order to protect their families and property. Gun control laws are primarily determined at state level, meaning that each state has different gun laws.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three easiest, least restrictive gun laws in America.

The first state is Indiana. In Indiana, without the license being in their possession, no person shall carry a handgun with them or in any motor vehicle. If a person decides to carry a firearm (with his license) in their motor vehicle, the handgun has to be unloaded, not readily accessible and has to be stored in a case. Application for a license has to be made to a chief law enforcement officer or to the sheriff of the county. The officer then makes background checks to see if the person is eligible to receive the license to carry firearms. The second state is Louisiana. No state permit is required to possess a rifle, shotgun, or a handgun. Anyone convicted of certain violent crimes is prohibited from possessing firearms for ten years from the day of completion of the sentence or probation. The state of Louisiana recognizes open carry as long as the person carrying firearms is at least 21. Concealed handguns cannot be carried into courtrooms, airports, places of worship or in any other place where firearms are banned by state or federal laws. Let’s see what’s coming next on our list of states with easiest, least restrictive gun laws in America. At last, but not least we should check what the situation is in New Hampshire. It is another state on our list of 15 states with easiest, least restrictive gun laws in America where there are no state requirements for the possession of shotguns, handguns or rifles. However, any person who was convicted of a felony related to firearms cannot own firearms.
