Democrats have generally adopted a strict stance in regards to the regulation of guns in America. The majority of significant anti-gun legislation has been passed by Democratic presidents or congress. The most notable provisions passed by Democrats, which regulated the use, sale, or possession of weapons are: The National Firearms Act of 1934, The Gun Control Act of 1968, The Brady Bill of 1993, and the Federal Assault Weapons Ban of 1994.
The series of legislative documents instituted bans or strict restrictions on the use, production, and accessibility of various firearms. Although generalized to an extent, the sentiments towards guns, expressed by the democratic party, can be revealed through the electoral college. If one were to review each state’s political history and their corresponding gun laws an obvious relationship would surmise.
