The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence

In the campaign’s annual report card on laws to protect children from gun violence, 28 states earned grades of “D” or “F.” Alaska, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Montana and Wyoming all failed, while California, Connecticut, Maryland and Massachusetts received grades in the “A” range. The report uses six categories of legislation to determine grades: possession, access prevention, lock standards, pre-emption (state restrictions on stricter local gun laws), secondary sales and concealed weapons.
