GunLawTrendwatch
A roundup and analysis of the latest state firearm legislation

An essential component of the work we do at Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence involves tracking and analyzing firearms legislation in all 50 states, using that information to educate lawmakers, advocates, the media, and the general public on the latest developments in America’s gun laws as bills advance through statehouses across the nation. We research nearly 1,700 bills each year—many of which are modeled off policies crafted by our legal experts—and identify trends that help inform the movement’s advocacy efforts.

Distributed biweekly during the state legislative cycle, Gun Law Trendwatch rounds up and analyzes trends in state gun legislation, documents important victories, and monitors the gun lobby’s activity in legislatures across the United States.
