Men in Alaska killed 11 women in 2014, giving this state the highest rate of male-on-female homicides in the entire country. Coincidentally it also ranked No. 3 on Gun & Ammo's list of best states for gun owners.

Gun owners in Alaska can tote their weapons with or without a permit, and can conceal them or carry them openly. There are also no restrictions — aside from the federal ones — on what type of weapon you can buy.
