CA is the worst state, but in your question you mention DC its not a state. There is also a very large debate on weather or not the citizens there have any rights because its not a state also, the politicians say the constitution doesn't govern it. IL is also very bad, you can't hunt with a rifle in the state, and to buy a pistol you have to have whats called a FOID (firearms identification card). In Chicago city limits its illegal to own a lot of firearms, I'm not sure on the specificity of it though. In CA the governator made it illegal to own or possess and 50 caliber firearms or ammunition. CT's not that bad, you can hunt with a rifle in the entire state, and you don't have to obtain a license to own a pistol. Cops do have to qualify with every pistol they own though to carry it, but that goes with every state. If you want to move somewhere with no gun restriction laws move to either Texas or New Hampshire. They are both very pro civil liberties.
