89. More an urban vs. non-urban thing, I'd say...
gun ownership rates are very high in the rural Northeast (Maine, NH, VT, Penn.), the Northwest, and West, as well as the South. My wife is from Maine, BTW.

It's less common in highly urban, industrial states like NJ.

If you exclude NYC, the state of New York has very high rates of gun ownership upstate, but NYC skews the figures down, I'm sure (it is very, very difficult to legally own a gun in New York City).
