Percent Gun Owners: 35.7%

Surprisingly, Texas is number 18. 

You would think the stereotyped gunslinger state would be numero uno, but you have to take into account all of the Yankee transplants in Houston, Dallas, and Austin. 

Still, Texas has over 27,000,000 people and a helluva lot of guns, yet still holds a relatively low murder rate when compared to other heavily populated states. 

I wonder if firearm ownership has something to do with this? ;)
