Gunwiki's Political Timeline

This site is by NO means providing legal advice, and NO warranty, express or implied, is provided that these mirrored sections of law are in fact accurate or current. The law changes regularly, and this is only a research tool.

Why Mirror?

  • Locally linked citations mean that if the law changes, it's easy to review all the articles citing that law for continued validity.
  • Sites change regularly; URLs change and links break. It is not good for the gun community when broken links discourage readers from performing their own legal research.
  • Some content is prone to vanish. The Bardwel NFA archive is a prime example of this - it seems to have several partial mirrors on the internet, and no primary site, making citations difficult.
  • Some content primarily gets passed around on message boards. ATF letters, while considered authoritative, are not collated and distributed via any governmental source. The more of these letters which can be pulled into a cohesive archive, the better.

Mirroring Policy

  • Full attribution. Each bill, executive order, or regulation listed on this site will include a link to its original source, which should be considered more authoritative. Users are encouraged to follow that link instead of relying solely upon the mirrored copy on this site. It is not the intention of this site to interfere with the traffic of other sites.
  • No editorial or commentary within the document. The Gunwiki web is for commentary and analysis. This web is solely for tracking actions and dates, not discussing their impact.
  • All mirrors must maintain a timestamp. The timestamp should be the date at which the text was copied from the authoritative site. This is important so that the mirrored copy may be updated correctly as laws change.

State Laws

If any given state gets a few entries, it can get split out. For the moment, rather than creating an entire header for one or two bills we're tracking, I'd rather keep one "state bills around the country" table.
