Thursday is the one-year anniversary of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. More than a hundred state-level gun laws have been enacted since then, including several in the Mountain West.
Since the Parkland and Las Vegas shootings, the Trump administration banned bump stocks at the national level. It's also important to to look at state gun laws, as they can sometimes be a catalyst for federal form, said Adam Winkler, a law professor at UCLA.
Winkler said most of the state laws introduced in the last year have been restrictive, adding that, "there's also been a number of laws passed that make it easier to have access to guns."
That was the case for most of the legislation passed in the Mountain West.
Some states in the region did introduce some gun control, Winkler said, enacting “more restrictions, such as making it harder for domestic abusers to get their hands on guns.”
