2nd Amendment Review 2013: Nearly Two-Thirds of Laws Passed EASE Restrictions and Expand Gun Owners’ Rights

1083415

In 2013, nearly every state passed at least one new gun law. Almost two-thirds of those laws loosen restrictions and expand the rights of gun owners.

Since the Sandy Hook shooting, about 1,500 state gun bills have been introduced. Of those, 178 passed at least one chamber of a state legislature and 109 have become law.

Of the 109 bills that were made law, 39 tighten gun restrictions, and 70 loosen them.

The New York Times created detailed graphics that provide specifics on the laws that were passed in each state. Categories the laws fall into include gun permits, public carry, guns in schools, mental health, background checks, assault weapons, nullify federal law, gun access, and lost or stolen firearms.

There is a clear partisan divide; most of the bills that expand gun owners’ rights and ease restrictions are in Republican-controlled states, and those that enacted tougher restrictions are in Democratic-controlled states.

The Wire notes that the partisan split is the reason there weren’t any new gun laws passed at the federal level. When the Senate took up the issue in April, a minority of Republican Senators blocked a package of reforms, and the House never took on the issue.

  6. Dennis Habern says:

    Our Founding Fathers were correct in their assumption, that the 2nd

    Amendment was necessary to protect American citizenry, not from without,

    but from within. Today, the United States is caught between the throes

    of Democracy and Communism/Islam. Most Americans detest what Communism/

    Islam maintains as their current policies, BUT then, why did so many stupid

    American vote for this Black Turd whom hates the United States with a passion

    that is more profound than his current diatribe which is not American, but

    rather, Muslim. Although he is a motley example of his Blackness, he has

    not reached out to the Black Community as he has reached out to the Muslim

    community that preaches violence and subjugation. Currently, he has

    to maintain his views on ridding the United States of their personally owned

    weapons in order to ensure that we citizens maintain no position to retaliate

    when he commences his Martial Law crackdown. Americans should be aware that

    this despicable, miserable, worthless POS, closet Muslim is in cahoots with

    George Soros, the Rothschilds and Brzezinski, as their puppet in implementing

    the New World Order, based upon the writings of Saul Alinsky, author of the

    book, “RULES FOR RADICALS,” and George Orwell’s 1949 novel, “1984,” where

    “BIG-BROTHER” is observing everyone, even in the bedroom. And not to forget

    that this miserable worthless dog is also a full-fledge member of “THE MUSLIM

    BROTHERHOOD,” whose goals are to seek a global Caliphate with this Communist

    Mutt, as its first Caliph. In summation: the reason for America’s

    fascination with guns, is the simple fact that since the commencement of

    “THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION IN 1776,” Americans have never full trusted their

    government, and now you know the rest of the story. Therefore, the current

    POTUS whom takes up space in the White House is an enemy to the welfare of

    the United States and both he and his motley Communistic/Muslim

    administration, must be removed from the oval office be either a military

    coup or a patriotic protest that will mirror the “FRENCH REVOLUTION OF 1789,”

    where the French rabble peasants grabbed their muskets and pitchforks and

    stormed the Bastille (prison) and the palaces of Paris and got rid of the

    dictator whom was impeding the French citizenry in their pursuit of Liberty,

    Equality, and Fraternity. Therefore, can we modern, patriotic American

    citizens, do any less. So let it be imparted, so let it be written, and so

    let it be enforced, yesterday.
