State Firearm Laws Website

Number of firearm laws by state.

The State Firearm Laws project aims to provide researchers with the data necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of various firearm laws. The website features a database of all law provisions by year and state, a codebook, and information on the methodology used to develop the database. There is also easily accessible information on a state-by-state basis that shows the number of laws, the per capita rates of gun related homicides and suicides, and a listing of all the laws in the state. The entire database can be downloaded for use.
