Take a bow, Mesa, but don't let your camouflage hat drag on the ground.

According to movoto.com, Mesa ranked tenth of the website's list of the most redneck cities in America.

The site used an array of criteria, including the percent of the population that didn't graduate high school, the amount of gun stores and taxidermists and the proximity to a NASCAR track.

Mesa, AZ ranked No. 1 in its number of gun/ammo stores per capita, with its population of just about 446,000 and a whopping 132 gun/ammo stores. After all, Arizona was recently ranked the "best state for gun owners," as you don't even need a permit to openly carry a gun in public.

The top city overall was Atlanta, followed by Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Nashville and Tulsa, respectively.
