MICHIGAN, (WNEM) -

Some states are more heavily dependent on the gun industry than others, so the personal-finance website WalletHub broke down which ones topped the list and which states didn’t.

To reach their rankings the site analyzed the states and the District of Columbia across 13 metrics.

Analysts were looking for the states that most heavily relied on the arms and ammunitions industry both directly for jobs and political contributions, and indirectly through firearm ownership.

Michigan ranked 45th, with 1 being the most dependent.
