A three month project that reveals the gun laws in all 50 states of the U.S. From our research, the United States has the highest gun ownership in the world. The Federal law lays down the minimum requirements for each individual state to follow. This allows states to have different regulations when it comes to owning a gun, but the Federal law can override any state ruling. 

This website provides a breakdown of the types of laws each state holds, to how strict each state is based off number of regulations, or types of guns that are legal. By creating this website, my partner and I wanted our information to be as comprehensible as possible, making the law as transparent as it can be.
