NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Despite strong pushes for gun control at the state level in recent years, firearms and supplies ranked as the most popular items purchased on eBay in New York State in a new survey.

The eBay survey showed the most popular items purchased per capita on eBay in every state in the country. While tactical and hunting goods ranked at the top for Texas – accompanied by a graphic of a rifle and binoculars – New York was the only state where firearms – represented by a graphic showing a pistol and two bullets – ranked at the top.

The survey also found that the gentlemen of New Jersey who use eBay want to make a good impression on the nose. Men’s fragrance ranked at the top of the list for the state.

And Connecticut did not have any one purchase category with the highest expenditure for capita, but the strongest category was a most mundane purchase item – batteries.

The survey had a number of surprises for other states. Robotic vacuums ranked as the most popular item for Delaware, art supplies for Wyoming, and hydroponic supplies for Colorado – where marijuana became legal for recreational use at the beginning of the year.
