Image 9 of 10


NEW JERSEY: A recent law that limits an individual to one handgun purchase a month is among the most restrictive gun laws in the US. The state also has strong background check and child safety laws. An unidentified witness to a drive-by shooting waits to be questioned by the police in Camden, New Jersey, in March 2005. The city, which is just nine square miles, has one of the worst rankings for murders, rapes, robberies, and other crimes.
