What Is The Most Heavily-Armed County In Montana?

Guns and gun ownership is a pretty touchy subject and a very divisive one as well.

In Montana, however, I don't think it matters if you are left or right, red or blue, Democrat or Republican; you probably own a gun or two. Even if you don't own one, you probably know someone who does.

To be fair here, I don't own a gun currently. I did have shotguns and rifles growing up, and I enjoy going target practice shooting.

I also support the second amendment, like the majority of Montana residents. I've heard it joked about that "If you go far enough left, you get your guns back."

Another quote about guns made me wonder what the percentage of gun ownership in Montana was. The quote is "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."
