Description
 
Congress has debated the efficacy and constitutionality of federal regulation of firearms and ammunition, with strong advocates arguing for and against greater gun control. In the wake of the July 20, 2012, Aurora, CO, theater mass shooting, in which 12 people were shot to death and 58 wounded (7 of them critically) by a lone gunman, it is likely that there will be calls in the 112th Congress to reconsider a 1994 ban on semiautomatic assault weapons and large capacity ammunition feeding devices that expired in Sept. 2004. There were similar calls to ban such feeding devices (see S. 436/H.R. 1781) following the Jan. 8, 2011, Tucson, AZ, mass shooting, in which 6 people were killed and 14 wounded, including Representative Gabrielle Giffords, who was grievously wounded. Contents of this report: Developments in the 112th Congress; Background and Analysis: Pro/Con Debate; Gun-Related Statistics; Federal Regulation of Firearms; Overview of Legislative Action in the 111th Congress; Emerging Issues in the 112th Congress; Other Salient Gun Control Legislative Issues. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
