Where Gun Laws are Most Likely to Change

Stateline.org is tracking the story:

After years of loosening gun restrictions, at least 11 state legislatures will consider tightening gun regulations this year after numerous mass shootings in 2012, including in Aurora, Colorado; Oak Creek, Wisconsin; Portland, Oregon; and Newtown, Connecticut. New York already passed sweeping gun restrictions last week. But while all eyes are on gun restrictions, at least six states have proposed easing those restrictions, and two states (Illinois and Wisconsin) have already backed off gun legislation at the urging of National Rifle Association (NRA) members.
