Inspired by this post, NFA Fun Data by state, and feeling that Utah was underrepresented, I crunched some per-capita numbers using the census estimated populations for 2014. Here are the top states for each section (per 10,000 people):
Top state for Machine Guns: Connecticut at 74 per 10k people
Top state for Silencers: Utah at 171 per 10k people
Top state for Destructive Devices: Wyoming at 2,022 per 10k people (D.C. is #2 at 583)
Top state for Short Barreled Rifle: New Hampshire at 21 per 10k people
Top state for Short Barreled Shotguns: Alaska at 16.9 per 10k people (D.C. a close 2nd place at 16.6)
Top state for Any Other Weapons: Wyoming at 5 per 10k people
Top state for FFLs: Wyoming at 15.3 per 10k people (Montana a close 2nd place at 15.2)
Utah made the list!
I must admit that I was initially surprised to see D.C near the top of the lists, but I suspect that it is due to Law Enforcement Agencies. It is interesting to note that D.C. only has 25 FFLs. Also, I have no idea why there are so many destructive devices per person in Wyoming.
Just had a phisher call me claiming to be from the US Bank fraud dept (caller id said 714-555-1212.) I don’t have any credit/debit cards with them. It was a computer generated recording saying my account was frozen and they needed to verify some of my information to unfreeze it. Unfortunately, it wouldn’t accept my made up account number.
Just remember, if you ever have someone call you asking for information like that immediately hang up and call the company in question directly, using a phone number you know is really theirs. Caller ID can be easily faked, so don’t depend on it to authenticate a caller either.
