Below commenter about Alaska is wrong ;3; The US has 50 states. Alaska is not a territory; it is a state. The territories the US owns are American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and various other small islands.

there are 50! and im pretty positive Alaska has been an actual state of ours for a long time??? I'm sure it's not a territory. But I could've totally missed something, I dunno @___@;; but yeah the 52 states thing could possibly be our territories being included, but last time I checked we had 14 territories so I'm really not sure haha.

So yeah there are 48 states in the actual connected country, then Alaska is connected to Canada and Hawaii is just in the middle of the ocean, so that's only 50 states.

i'm not sure if the law goes for them, but it's nationwide so I don't see why not :0

ye i saw that alaska was the 49th state, causing the phrase 'the lower 48' 

but I'm just ???
if there are 14 territories then how come we get taught there are 52 states if there are two states additional i mean

maybe its washington DC as a state additional ?? but then theres still one more and njfgkdnk

STARB0MB Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015
I have no idea omfg?? It could be that DC is counted since it's not actually in a state but just. I have no idea :0

oh and yes, the law goes for all 50 states! 8)

aaahh yeah ]: it's very shitty that we're still going to have those sorts of issues - maybe some even stronger than before that will happen purely out of spite for this law. We have quite a way to go..... but baby steps!! I'm excited to see what we can accomplish in the future :>

52?? Where the FUCK did they get that?? If they're counting Costa Rica, that's a US territory too. And Hawaii is our 50th state. (I'm a American, soo ye)

iMonox Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
they probably counted the territory as states yea!
which i think probably isn't /that/ wrong? I mean
they're probably not states by name/title but I assume that they fall under the same authority as the other states and such

I don't know ;A;
