In the past, advocates for tougher gun laws have turned to federal, state, and local legislatures for solutions. For a variety of reasons, however, it has been difficult to enact progressive gun policies into law. Appeals to the gun industry to use more care in distributing and selling its products have also fallen on deaf ears.
