A new study found that recently passed gun control laws in Washington and Colorado were futile, just as many pro-gun Americans argued they would be.
What laws were passed?
Several years ago, Colorado and Washington state passed laws that required a background check for every gun sale — commercial or private, handgun or long gun. A similar law was also passed in Delaware.
Currently, any time a firearm is purchased from a licensed dealer, a background check is run through a national law enforcement database. However, in most cases, a background check isn’t required, though they are recommended, for private purchases. Still, many states require pistol permits, which require a background check to obtain, to privately purchase a handgun.
