“Guns Were Much More Strictly Regulated in the 1920s and 1930s than They Are Today” | History News Network

Robert J. Spitzer gives a brief overview of gun regulation in the 1920s and 1930s, and concludes that “guns were much more strictly regulated decades or even centuries ago than they are today.” This is a pretty narrow slice of gun control history on which to base such a broad conclusion, but looking at the “Table of Contents” from his book (Guns Across America) it looks like Spitzer’s conclusion is grounded in a much broader history of gun control from the founding to today.
Despite its brevity, Spitzer’s summary of gun control in the 1920s and 1930s is very interesting. To read his summary go here:
