Gun Regulation and Legislation in America is included in HeinOnline’s Social Justice Suite, free to HeinOnline Core subscribers and any interested organizations.
Gun regulation in the United States is arguably among the most controversial and heavily debated topics in American history. The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution states: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This collection brings together more than 740 titles dealing with this difficult and important topic. Included are:
- Key compiled federal legislative histories
- Congressional hearings
- CRS reports
- Supreme Court briefs
- Extensive bibliography
- And more!
Over the last several years, the United States has seen some of the deadliest mass shootings in history. In light of these tragedies, HeinOnline has made this collection of materials free of charge to all U.S. Core subscribers, academics, and other institutional libraries in order to provide a platform for research and promote civil discourse on the myriad issues related to gun regulation. Our goal is to facilitate productive discussions and help bring all sides of this argument together to effect positive change and present more senseless loss of life. We encourage librarians to share this resource openly with all patrons.
