Looking to move someplace new in the United States in 2020? Searching for a state that doesn't have gun control laws quite as strict as where you currently live? We have some suggestions for some of the best states for gun ownership right now.

We considered things like background checks, the ease of obtaining concealed carry permits, carry laws, self-defense laws, gun ownership and the general gun culture of the populace.

These are our picks for the best states for second amendment enthusiasts in 2020.

The Tacoma, Wash., City Council voted 8-0 Tuesday to tax the sales of firearms and ammunition.

After previously delaying a vote on the “Firearms and Ammunition Tax,” the council ruled that a tax of $25 will be placed on each firearm sold, as well as a tax of 2 cents per round of ammunition .22 caliber or less, and 5 cents per round of other ammunition, all sold at retail. The tax will go into effect July 1, 2020, and proponents claim it will raise $30,000 annually.

When Michael Bloomberg put his big toe in the race for president of the United States by dispatching his aides to Alabama to file paperwork to get his name on the state’s ballot as a Democrat, he didn’t just make gun owners grimace.

Sure, in 2014 Bloomberg pledged to spend $50 million to absorb the anti-gun group Moms Demand Action into his Mayors Against Illegal Guns, forming the gun-control group Everytown for Gun Safety. More recently, Bloomberg said he’d spend over $50 million on a new gun-control campaign for 2020. His money has actually been behind just about every attempt to diminish Second Amendment rights for the last few decades.

It was a force-on-force class using Simunitions. The two student partners walked down a path and, as they rounded the bend, saw an attractive, young woman lying crumpled on the ground by the path. One of the men, who happened to be an EMT in real life, rushed to her side and knelt down. Just then, a bad guy came busting out of the brush on the other side of the path, and the shooting started. Fortunately, the two partners made quick work of him. As they were smiling at each other, pleased with their shooting prowess, the “injured” girl rolled over and ran a rubber knife across the student’s throat.

After a two-week trial, jurors found a Binghamton man not guilty Friday in a Pine Street homicide, apparently agreeing he'd acted in self-defense.

Miguel Manchion, 41, had been accused of first-degree manslaughter, second-degree manslaughter and second-degree assault felony counts in the March 16 death of 51-year-old Lazar Jones.

Court documents say Jones was struck repeatedly in the head with a glass mug at 84 Pine St., and police officers were called to the scene after getting a report of a "man down" in a second-floor apartment.

On Friday, Harper’s attorneys argued that his $100,000 bond isn’t appropriate for a crime that carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $1.000 fine, and that it isn’t necessary to ensure he’ll show up in court for future hearings.

Harper’s acquaintance and Self-Defense Act instructor Adrian Otap agreed the charge is excessive.

A Texas state lawmaker has reportedly been charged with a third-degree felony after he dropped a cocaine-filled envelope in an airport.

Earlier this year, Democratic state Rep. Poncho Nevárez, 47, was leaving an Austin airport when he dropped a “white paper object,” marked with his official letterhead, as he climbed into the front passenger seat of his chief of staff’s car, The Washington Post reports.

Judge Peter Dubensky issued a rare judgment of acquittal on Thursday during the murder trial of 27-year-old Deranty Taylor, who shot Wayne Yates several times with a silver revolver during an argument on May 6 in Palmetto. Yates later died from the injuries.

After prosecutors presented their case, Dubensky issued a JOA on the second-degree murder charge, and it was reduced to manslaughter. Dubensky told the court he would reserve further ruling until Taylor’s defense attorney argued that he acted in self-defense during the shooting. After the argument was presented, Dubensky issued the JOA for the manslaughter charge.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine's plan to tackle gun violence has a new opponent: the state's most prominent Second Amendment group.

Buckeye Firearms Association shifted DeWine's Senate Bill 221 into the "bills we oppose" category Friday. The group published a list of problems with the proposal, including that the bill would essentially require universal background checks.
 

Know the Opposition: Violence Policy Center

One of the reasons that we are facing a harder fight for our rights is that anti-Second Amendment extremists have gone beyond the misuse of firearms in the commission of crimes and acts of madness as a reason to take away our rights. This strategy, which has become very effective, had its birth with the Violence Policy Center.

Do not let the innocent-sounding name fool you. The Violence Policy Center is responsible for not only creating the “assault weapons” myth that is regularly used to beat Second Amendment supporters over the head, especially in the wake of mass shootings, but it is part of an overarching long-term strategy that is responsible for a paradigm shift in the debate over our rights.

The National Rifle Association 's embattled top executive earned about $2 million last year at a time when the gun rights lobby is beating back challenges from regulators, longtime members and gun control groups, according to tax filings cited in media reports.

The tax filings come as the NRA faces investigations in New York and Washington, D.C., that threaten its nonprofit status. Nonprofits file tax documents every year, and they are a year behind, capturing the NRA's finances for 2018 — the year before internal strife spilled into public view.

CA: Santa Clarita demonstrates (once again) the folly of too-easy access to guns

Here’s one reason: Because somehow in the United States of the 21st century it’s simply not that difficult for a teen to acquire a .45 caliber semiautomatic handgun. Should the staff at Saugus High School have pegged the suspect, a junior who was a member of the track team, as a candidate for murder-suicide? That seems highly unlikely (and might not have made a difference anyway). Would the usual NRA prescription, a so-called “good guy” with a gun have made a difference? Not in 16 seconds. Could the school have been fortified sufficiently to prevent the attack? Equally preposterous. The line to metal detectors could just as easily have been the killing field as the school’s quad.

On Tuesday, a federal judge struck down a deal that allowed 3D-printed gun files to be legally shared online. Here's the story of how this multiyear drama unfolded:
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. --JOHN F. KENNEDY
