Maze of gun laws in US hurts gun control efforts

Maze of gun laws in US hurts gun control efforts | The Second Amendment by Nick Hathaway | Scoop.it
WASHINGTON (AP) — Military-style assault weapons, gangster-style Tommy guns, World War II-era bazookas and even sawed-off shotguns — somewhere in the U.S., there is a legal avenue to get each of those firearms and more.
Nick Hathaway's insight:

You were once able to buy heavy automatic weapons, and you still are because of loop-holes in the laws. This a maze of gun laws around the country and the lack of minimum federal laws. An Associated Press analised the different law of the states, the gun laws very state to state and sometime even in state. These laws and regulations govern who can carry a firearm, what kind of firearm is legal, the size of ammunition magazines and more. In some places. So to help this they want a federal law to help with this law maze.
