BREAKING NEWS

Happiness Is A Warm Gun
States Most Dependent on the Gun Industry 

March 20, 2018



Chronicle staff

(NATIONAL) -- With gun sales still in decline since President Donald Trump took office and with the recent Parkland school shooting prompting more debates on guns and the gun industry, those busy beavers over at the personal-finance website WalletHub released a report Monday on 2018's States That Are Most Dependent On TheGun Industry.

To determine the states that depend most heavily on the arms and ammunitions industry - both directly for jobs and political contributions and indirectly through firearm ownership - WalletHub compared the 50 states across 16 key metrics.

The data set ranges from firearms industry jobs per capita to gun sales per 1,000 residents to gun ownership rate. How does our state rank? Turns out Washington doesn't make much dough on heaters and ammo. We rank at 39 on the list of states least dependent on the gun industry.
