Question Can the AT&T G2 be rooted at this time on the latest OS update?

The title says it all.

I recently bought an AT&T Note 3 on 4.4.3, could not root, and went nuts.
I do not want to end up in the same boat again.

So is it safe to buy an AT&T branded LG G2 off contract with the intention to root etc?
Is there a more favored model for rooting than the AT&T model?
