History of GCA 68
Just came across a legal history of the Gun Control Act of 1968, by Franklin Zimring. Zimring generally supports more gun laws, but his preface has an interesting note: "The study will be of little use to the most fervent friends and foes of gun control legislation. It provides data they do not need. Each group has already decided that the 1968 Act has failed, and each group uses the Act’s presumed failure to confirm views already strongly held. Enthusiasts for strict federal controls see the failure of the law as proof that stricter laws are needed, while opponents see it as evidence that no controls will work."
