It's an understatement to say that gun laws vary across the United States.

As the nation continues to reel from the December mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., and President Barack Obama is pushing for tougher gun control measures, McClatchy has created a useful graphic showing state-by-state differences in gun laws.

Here's how measures in Pennsylvania and New Jersey compare with the rest of the country:

New Jersey and five other states, plus D.C., ban large-capacity magazines. Pennsylvania does not.

New Jersey, six other states and D.C. ban semi-automatic weapons that allow rapid, accurate spray firing. Pennsylvania does not.

New Jersey and 10 other states, plus D.C., have a waiting period between purchasing a firearm and transferring the item to the gun owner. Pennsylvania does not.

Both Pennsylvania and New Jersey, along with 28 other states, require or authorize mental-health information to be reported to a federal database.

Pennsylvania and 33 other states allow the open carrying of handguns in public without a permit or license. New Jersey does not.

Pennsylvania and 25 other states have laws that permit deadly force in self-defense in a public place with no duty to retreat.

From the other place:

Quote:When the military owns them and they have 20" barrels, fire in either full auto or burst fire mode they are called M-16A1

When the military owns them and they have a 14.5 barrel, fire in either full auto or burst fire, they call them M4-A1

When the Dept of Homeland Security owns them and they have a 14.5" barrel and they fire in either full auto or burst fire mode they are called Personal Defense Weapons

When the police own them and they have a 14.5" barrel and fire in either full auto or burst mode, they call them Patrol Rifles

When you or I own rifles that look like the ones the miltary, police or Dept of Homeland Security own, but are mechanically different, inferior even and they have 16" barrels (14.5" for those of us who get cleared by the ATF and pay a $200 tax stamp, and fire one round per trigger pull, they are called Assault "indiscriminate baby killing destroyer of the fabric of society that no one has a need to own" Rifles.

I look at it the opposite way, to me it sounds like we have strong laws in place to keep both our rights and safety in place. We are a bastion of light and set a good example to the rest of the northeast states. I would like to see a bill passed on a state level however that refuses to enforce a federal ban.
