Trendwatch Year-End Review: December 18, 2019
A Roundup and Analysis of the Latest State Firearm Legislation
Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence tracks and analyzes firearms legislation in all 50 states. Our attorneys research more than 1,700 bills each year—many of which are modeled off policies crafted by our legal experts—and identify trends that inform the movement’s advocacy efforts. We use this information to educate lawmakers, advocates, and the public as bills advance through statehouses.
Distributed biweekly during the state legislative cycle, Gun Law Trendwatch rounds up and analyzes these trends in state gun legislation, documents important victories, and monitors the gun lobby’s activity in legislatures across the United States.
